STONE is a game in the same vein as The Big Lebowski, Inherent Vice and Pineapple Express, but with a splash of anthropomorphic animals and Bojack Horseman. And it has just launched on Xbox One.
Roy Stone is a koala bear and private investigator who must use his investigation skills on a case too close to home, as his beloved boyfriend Alex has gone missing. Stone has no idea why. Using his knowledge of the town, and his unparalleled knowledge of alcohol, he must find Alex and solve his own mystery.
He also needs to be careful though, as a group of cockney foxes are looking for a koala bear that fits his description…
Stone can take his time though; like any good stoner he is in no rush. He can relax and unwind at various places including the sauna and record store, and also the cinema where he can watch full films including Night of the Living Dead and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. These are the full-length films available to watch at your disposal. Just don’t forget about Alex completely.
There are a variety of other locations for Stone to investigate including a nightclub, a craft ale bar and even his own flat. That may or may not include a talking toaster and a rubber duck.
Our review of the game will be live imminently too, so you can read our thoughts about how STONE plays out before deciding for yourself.
Edit: That review is now live. Give it a read!
