Stonefly, The Upcoming “Chill” Mech Adventure, Receives Release Date

The next game from award-winning indie studio Flight School Studio, Stonefly, has finally received a release date and will be launching on consoles and PC.

Indie studio Flight School Studio and publisher MWM have announced that their chill and tranquil mech-based adventure title, Stonefly, will be launching later this year. Flight School Studio are renowned for their previous game, Creature in the Well. It went on to receive 76% on Metacritic and an 8 out of 10 from Gamespot. Players will embark on a coming-of-age narrative across an enchanting forest in Stonefly, following the heartwarming narrative of Annika. Bohdon Sayre, the game director at Flight School Studio, spoke about their goals to create something totally unique, and their partnership with MWM.

“Our small team set out to create something visually unique and mechanically original with Stonefly and we think players are going to love following Annika’s journey and gliding around the world we’ve created […] We always challenge ourselves to put stakes in the ground outside the norm, and MWM Interactive have been a great partner to allow us the creative freedom to take risks and explore new territory. Stonefly is an ambitious project, different than anything we’ve made before, and a game that we are really proud of.”
