SkyBox Labs, who is co-developing upcoming release Halo Infinite, has revealed a brand new "cinematic platformer" called Stela, which sees players take control of a young woman witnessing the end of an ancient world. This will release on PC and Xbox One this year, and will be debuted at the Game Developer Conference (GDC) next week as an official selection in the ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

You'll have to navigate the dying world as you solve puzzles in the environment to progress. You'll also be sneaking past danger in the hostile terrain, and an original soundtrack underpins the experience in Stela.

"Our focus was to create beautiful 3D atmospheres with depth and scale while remaining as true to the cinematic platformer genre as possible," said Shyang Kong, Co-Founder, SkyBox Labs. "We're extremely proud of our work developing partner titles like Halo Infinite and Minecraft Bedrock Edition on Nintendo Switch, and we're eager to bring that level of craftsmanship to a touching new experience."

We'll have to wait until GDC for meatier details on Stela, but for now we have a few new screenshots below. Do you have high hopes?
