Gylt, Once a Stadia Exclusive, is Coming to PC and Console


Gylt, originally a Stadia-only title, is coming to multiple platforms next year.

How so? Is this because Stadia, Google’s game streaming service is shutting down this January? Apparently not, because it appears Gylt was, in fact, a timed exclusive. Back in 2019, Eurogamer attempted to nail down developer Tequila Softworks but they remained evasive. “Today is not the time to answer that question but rest assured, everyone will be able to play the game,” co-founder Raúl Rubio Munárriz replied.

Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. With Stadia shutting down, you won’t be able to play it on the platform it launched on. Yes, there’s a lesson about digital preservation there, though the good(ish) news is that anyone who purchased Gylt should be getting a refund.

As for the multiplatform release, Tequila has, according to their announcement, been working on Gylt for a while. So while the demise of Stadia could have hastened their plans, it was only a matter of time before the game came to PC and console.

The game casts you as a missing girl who ends up lost in a warped version of her home town – or is she?  As titles go, Gylt has foreshadowing written all over it. But, real or not, you have to fend off shadow creatures and other beasts and get to the bottom of the mystery.

Gylt is set for a 2023 release, though Tequila Softworks haven’t been more specific than that. Nor have they stated precisely which platforms it’s coming to. But, given how much we loved Rime and The Sexy Brutale, two of the developer’s previous titles, we have our fingers crossed that Gylt will prove deserving of a wider audience.
