stories untold xbox

If the gaming scene was packed full of similar experiences, it would get extremely stale, extremely quickly. And so when we find something pop up on Xbox One and PS4 that threatens to tear up the rule book and attempt something different, our ears perk up. That is the case here today with the launch of Untold Stories. 

Not to be confused with Lovecraft’s Untold Stories, Stories Untold from Devolver Digital takes the usual storytelling genre before bending and blending it into something a little more unique, delivering four short stories to gamers in one mysterious anthology. 

Priced at £8.39 from the Xbox Store, with a small launch discount dropping that below the PlayStation Store’s £7.99 asking price, Untold Stories mixes classic text-based adventuring with point-and-click elements. The hope is that this will in turn allow for a rather fascinating, rather fantastic experience. 

With some old-school retro visuals, a sublime synth-wave soundtrack and plenty of genre hopping, if you’re looking for something to get your teeth into, Stories Untold may well deliver. 

  • – Four unique stories, with their own settings, gameplay and mechanics.
  • – Play mind-bending text adventures, process radio transmissions and conduct experiments on bizarre artifacts.
  • – Gorgeous retro-aesthetic brings back vivid memories, or a glimpse into what was.
  • – Sublime synth-wave horror soundtrack, inspired by 80s horror soundtracks.
  • – Genre-hopping: from psychological horror, to tense mystery and terrifying sci-fi; Stories Untold is truly “4 stories, 1 nightmare”.

To get involved in these latest tales to hit Xbox One and PS4, just head over to your favoured digital store. We’ll no doubt have a little review of the Xbox One version of Stories Untold coming your way in the days ahead too.
