Halloween is right around the corner and PlayStation is getting into the spooky spirit. Sony released a new launch trailer today for Stories Untold. The puzzle horror video game was originally released in 2017 by developer No Code and published by Devolver Digital. Now three years later, the game hits PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles for the first time today.
The launch trailer starts off with a retro monitor and keyboard from the 1980s. It proceeds to show off multiple teases of the game’s puzzles and shows off the game’s nostalgic aesthetic. The trailer moves on to snippets of good reviews from gaming websites. It gives off major 80’s vibes with its synth-pop playlist in the background. The trailer may be short at 55 seconds, but it’s enough to get any Stranger Things fan hooked.
Stories Untold was first released in 2017 for PC and was developer No Code’s debut game. The developer went on to create Observation, an adventure-puzzle game that follows an AI trying to save its space station crew from a terrible accident. Stories Untold was then released in January for the Nintendo Switch. Now, No Code and Devolver Digital is sharing the screams with console players. Stories Untold is narrative-driven and revolves around four short stories — each with their own theme. The game promotes major 80’s nostalgia and will have players involved in stories with extremely different scenarios as players find themselves in a long-forgotten attic or in a lonely research station in Antarctica. According to PlayStationLifestyle, “players can expect to dive into an experience that delivers a healthy mixture of classic text-adventure and point-and-click gameplay.”

The horror anthology game is a few hours long and will fit perfectly into a scary Halloween night-in. The game was released today for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But if you don’t have a console have no fear, Stories Untold is currently priced at $2.50 as part of Epic Games’ Halloween sale.
