LEARN A LITTLE MORE ABOUT COVERED, A GAME DEVELOPED BY THE COSTA RICAN STUDIO STONEBALL WITH AN INTERESTING CONCEPT
This time we share a game called Covered, which is developed by Stoneball, a small video game studio based in Costa Rica, and which is formed with Latin talent.
This 3D indie title belongs to the adventure genre, but it also has action elements. The plot is centered on a peculiar character whose mission is to reach the sacred mountain of Lonko. However, things will not be so easy for him.
COVERED IS DEVELOPED IN COSTA RICA
Getting there is not as easy as just walking and climbing. The protagonist has to exercise his manipulation skills to create allies and survive.
This proposal is inspired by today’s society, in how people keep hidden behind ‘masks’. It is in this way that people hide their true personality. So the main character in this game is the only one who can reveal them.
That doesn’t suit the guys running everything at Covered, so he’s considered dangerous. The fact is that the masks that exist in the game, as well as the existing social hierarchy, are key to a certain prophecy.
As the protagonist progresses in the journey, he will discover how these hidden objects control the world. As can be seen, the approach sounds very enigmatic. The trailer in this note gives an idea of what to expect.
A TITLE THAT OFFERS MORE THAN 12 HOURS OF GAME
Arguably, the game is like an experience reminiscent of a conspiracy theory. One where alien elements, ancient gods, politics, the concept of evil versus good and a bit of violence are mixed.
Stoneball highlights that its creation includes a series of new and original playable mechanics. How much does this adventure pay off? Approximately more than 12 hours. Not bad at all for the standards that are handled now.
It should be noted that Covered also has its fair share of side quests. You don’t have to finish the main story first. It is possible to entertain yourself with the subplots, and then move on.
An important element of this proposal, and that we mentioned before, are the masks. There are at least 10 of these that have various effects in terms of power, social meaning, and interaction. It is something to keep very much in mind.
When will Covered be available? It is assumed that during this first quarter of the year. It will be out on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. For more details, visit their official website.
