Last week, Google announced that they have plans Closed Stadia on January 18. One of the less discussed casualties of the news was Tequila Works’ Gylt, a horror adventure game and Stadia’s first exclusive title, will be gone completely. Thankfully, that won’t be the case.
Tequila Works has confirmed that they plan to make Gylt multiplatform in 2023. It doesn’t say what platforms the game will be available on, but it’s a relief to hear that one of Stadia’s few original gems will be. not lost in history.
Gylt launched in November 2019 alongside Stadia. It stars a young girl named Sally, who is searching for her missing cousin through a town haunted by evil spirits. The narrative also serves as a commentary on bullying and depression. The game vibe and art direction evoke movies like Coraline or Tim Burton cartoons and channel games like Inside and Silent Hill. Gameplay emphasizes stealth, with the player using a flashlight to defeat enemies. Despite having a more innocent look, the game has some really scary moments and I personally find it a fun horror game.
Will you watch Gylt before Stadia closes or wait to play it elsewhere next year? Let us know in the comments section!
