The Stanley Parable’s William Pugh to release heist game with Simon Amstell tomorrow

Crows Crows Crows

William Pugh is best known for co-developing The Stanley Parable with Davey Wreden, but was understandably kind of over it by the time we interviewed him more than a year later. Simon Amstell is an English comedian best known for hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks, but hasn’t done that for yonks either. Both are doing thoroughly intriguing things in the here and now – namely releasing a 15 to 20 minute game together, set against the backdrop of a series of burglaries spanning Europe.

Pugh’s past work made our list of the best indie games on PC.

There’s a countdown happening on the website for Crows Crows Crows, the studio Pugh has led for the last year or so. It’s in the name of their new heist game, though we don’t actually know its name yet.

Amstell hasn’t tweeted on the subject, but doesn’t tweet very often, so.

If Crows Crows Crows’ ARG-hints over the past two months are anything to go by, we should expect dramatically lit indoor environments and plenty of British whimsy. Oh, plus the music of Banjo-Kazooie and Civilisation: Beyond Earth composer Grant Kirkhope. Interested?
