PQube (London, UK) January 19, 2018 – What would you do if a stranger's fate rested in your fingertips? And how would you cope if every second could be the difference between life and death? New graphic adventure STAY is set to ask those very questions this spring when it launches on Xbox One, PC and Mac.

Developed by award-winning Spanish indie studio Appnormals Team, STAY is the story of Quinn: A therapist who wakes up alone and locked in a strange room with nothing of note save 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.

Raise your empathy

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

Interactive storytelling

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

Uncover the truth

Webcams enable you to spy on Quinn, letting you see both his reactions to your comments and his actions while Away From Keyboard. Pick up on his lies and use that knowledge to your advantage.

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 puzzle sections.

STAY is ready to break out on Xbox One, PC and Mac in Spring 2018
