The shutdown of Google Stadia will drop some exclusive games with it, but one exclusive will be able to escape the sinking ship. Wavetale, a “First on Stadia” title released in 2021, will arrive on PC and consoles in December.
Wavetale was released to Google Stadia in November of last year and was mostly well received. The game, published by Thunderful Games, was a story-driven action-adventure title that saw players face monsters in the sea to save citizens from islands.
Explore the open sea and the dilapidated archipelago of Strandville in Wavetale, a story-driven action-adventure game introducing you to jaded fishermen, secretive hermits—and maybe a pirate or two. Traverse calm waters and surging waves as Sigrid, a young girl who befriends a mysterious shadow that grants her the power to walk on water.
Dash through the waves, swing from rooftops with your net, and defeat monstrous enemies to save the islands’ citizens. All with a little help from the shadows below—and your grumpy grandma.
The game was released as a “First on Stadia” title, meaning it was a timed exclusive. Generally, such agreements last for about a year and then allow the game to expand to other platforms.
As such, Wavetale will be headed to PC and other consoles – PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and Steam – on December 12. The game is already available for wishlist on Steam and PC. players can also download a demo for free. There’s no word on what the game will cost on new platforms, but it was $29.99 on Stadia. There’s also no word if any other cloud gaming platforms will support the title.
Those who played the game on Stadia can continue to do so until January 18, 2023, when Google will shut down Stadia for good. If you bought the game on Stadia, you’ll also get a full refund.
