Storm in a Teacup likes to move fast. Just over a year ago, the studio didn't even exist - now, it's showing off its debut game, the first-person, story-driven puzzler Nero, behind closed doors at Gamescom.
As if to prove that Xbox One really can do indies, here's a new trailer for Nero, a 'visual novel' developed by new Italian studio Storm in a Teacup. It leans heavily on CG, which may disappoint, but you can't blame the developer for going that way when one of its founders, Carlo Bianchi, is a veteran of the CG scene.
As to how it actually plays, well... The details are still hazy, and Storm in a Teacup is keen to maintain a sense of enigma around its story, but two of its biggest inspirations are Journey and Myst. We'll have fuller impressions for you in the near future, and hopefully we'll learn a little more about Microsoft's ID@Xbox program at the Gamescom briefing later today.
