PQube (London, UK) – September 12th, 2018 – Today, PQube and developer Appnormals Team are excited to release the atmospheric adventure STAY worldwide for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. With numerous awards and nominations under its pixelated belt, STAY staggers players with a stirring experience where every choice matters. Including a 20% launch discount for one week from now, this is the perfect opportunity to pick up the story-driven thriller in the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Network.

Developed by award-winning Spanish indie studio Appnormals Team, STAY is an innovative real-time pixel-adventure where every second counts.

Abducted and alone, main character Quinn wakes up alone in a locked room with nothing of note except for a computer hooked up to an internet chat room. That chat room has one other member: You. As Quinn's only contact with the outside world, you become his single ray of hope. Your choices – and your timeliness when it comes to responding to his requests – will single-handedly shape his escape efforts… or lead him down the path to an untimely end.

The clock never stops

 

STAY plays out in real-time, meaning that every minute spent away from the game is a minute Quinn is left alone. Drop out of conversations or leave Quinn to fend for himself for too long and there may be consequences to your actions.

Raise your empathy

 

Quinn is on edge, and every response matters. Prove yourself a compassionate ally and he’ll learn to trust you and share both his findings and deepest thoughts. Fail, and his emotions may work against you.

Interactive storytelling

 

Featuring 24 chapters, seven different endings, dozens of life-altering choices and entire webs of conversation, STAY is designed to be replayed multiple times. Explore myriad rooms and unearth hidden secrets in subsequent playthroughs to piece together the full story.

Uncover the truth

 

Webcams around the environment and on the computer enable you to watch and analyse Quinn’s reactions, mental state and actions while he is Away From Keyboard. Pick up on his lies, use that knowledge to your advantage and uncover the truth at the heart of STAY.

Solve mind-bending puzzles

 

Help Quinn get the better of the conundrums he encounters inside his prison by taking direct control of his actions during numerous puzzle sections.
