Graphic novel artist Ida Hartmann and Niila Games have today announced their new game Stilstand with a new reveal trailer.
Another sip, a long drag, another swipe left. Watching the world burn can be a lonely business. Stilstand is a darkly comedic interactive graphic novel following the grim yet hopeful journey of one woman through a summer riddled with anxiety, loneliness, trying to stay afloat in Copenhagen with the help from the shadow monster in her apartment.
