Tiny Brains developer Spearhead Games has revealed its next project, a PS4-exclusive action-RPG called Stories: The Hidden Path.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, Stories is set in a Redwall-like fantasy realm of anthropomorphic animals, floating islands, ostentatious airships and magic. Following the exploits of a fox named Reynardo, the sole survivor of his squadron, you must make a series of difficult choices to save the kingdom from an ominous militia.
What sets Stories apart from other games of its ilk is its focus on story-based choices, complete with a The Stanley Parable-esque narrator. "Every choice you make in the game affects the storyline in real-time, and the narrator adapts his tale dynamically to reflect your course of action," explained Spearhead co-founder Simon Darveau. "With beautiful illustrations at every turn of the page, Stories will have you diving deeper into the narrative nuances each time you play."
