Get scared on social media

Cass Marshall is a news writer focusing on gaming and culture coverage, taking a particular interest in the human stories of the wild world of online games.

Stories Untold is an excellent, episodic indie horror game that released back in 2017. The developer, No Code, is bringing the game back in an unusual way — a Twitter text adventure. On Dec. 22, at 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST, No Code will run a Twitter Story called “The Site Investigate,” a callback to the very first story from Stories Untold, The House Abandon.

Based on the tagline (“1 Story. A Million Nightmares.”), we anticipate that the story will branch, and Twitter users will determine which path the protagonist goes along. Because this is a horror game, there’ll be some twists and turns, but none of the endings will likely be “good” in the traditional sense.

This isn’t a tease for No Code’s next game. The developer stated on Twitter that a project is in the works, but it’ll be a while before players get to see it. “Desperate for a new No Code game? Yeah us too. A while yet, soz. It’ll be worth it though trust us,” the studio wrote. The developer’s second game, Observation, released in 2019.
