The Glass Staircase is on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch

Inspired by the likes of Silent Hill, The Glass Staircase is a surreal and atmospheric horror that has now released on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. 

Available right now as the latest to land on console via the Puppet Combo team is The Glass Staircase. It’s priced at £8.39 and is fully optimised for Xbox Series X|S. Playable on Xbox One if you so prefer, you’ll also find it on the digital stores of PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. 

Will you climb the staircase?

This is a game that first released on PC back in 2019, whisking us off to a dilapidated estate. This place has been converted into an orphanage, as we find four girls attempting to survive, just long enough to complete their chores and find a new home.

The thing is, unknowable horrors have punctuated the history of the house, and those girls are about to learn about them, the hard way…

Whilst this is a game that has been inspired by PS2 survival horror classics such as Silent Hill and GameCube’s venerable Eternal Darkness, the narrative stylings in place are much more in line with Italian zombie horror movies; The Beyond, House by the Cemetery, and Suspiria.

Dive in to what The Glass Staircase has to offer though and you’ll find the opportunity to customize your experience with a selection of control styles, graphical modes, and CRT effects. That means you get the chance to go old-school and classic, or with some more modern takes should you so wish. 

Features

  • Classic tank controls
  • Fixed angle cameras
  • Selectable graphical styles (retro and less retro)
  • Existential horror
  • Surreal atmosphere

Buy now!

You’ll find The Glass Staircase on the Xbox Store right now. Running a price of £8.39, this is a tempting proposition, but we’ll be sure to let you know how it plays for sure in our full review. 

Alternatively, you’ll find the game on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch too. 

Edit: Our full review of The Glass Staircase is live.

The Glass Staircase Description

It’s been a long time since you’ve seen your parents, hasn’t it? Not to worry, girls. Just listen to the voice on the intercom. Do what they say. They’ve provided you a home. They’ve provided you food. They will make you into good girls. This old house has never treated you wrong, now has it? Now be good girls, all of you. The Master will need you to be strong during these troubling times. Remember: Good girls take their medicine. Good girls do their chores. Good girls go home.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
