The “magical journey recreation set in a tiny forest” options “a superb, optimistic, however naive younger inventor” protagonist named Annika Stonefly. On the general feeling of the sport, inventive director Adam Volker commented within the trailer, “We’re going for one thing that seems like Rogue One shrunk all the way down to FernGully measurement, written as a coming-of-age story.”

She joins a trio referred to as the Acorn Corps with the intention to observe down the thieves who stole her dad’s rig and within the means of doing so, discovers new issues about herself and the world round her.

That is about the one similarity I can spot in the case of evaluating the sport to Creature within the Properly, one other recreation that inspired gamers to fall into an everyday rhythm-like stream to beat its challenges. Stonefly could be very totally different, nonetheless, in that its gameplay loop appears geared extra in the direction of exploration than fight.”
