Cinematic platformer Unto The End coming to Stadia later this year

2 Ton Studios' hand-crafted adventure launching on gaming service via Stadia Makers program

21 September, 2020 – Indie publisher Big Sugar is delighted to share the news that upcoming hand-crafted adventure Unto The End will launch on Stadia later this year. Developed by 2 Ton Studios' husband and wife team, Stephen Danton and Sara Kitamura, Unto The End will arrive on the gaming service via Stadia Makers, a program created to help small teams making Unity-based games bring their creations to Stadia.

Developer Stephen Danton explains why the prospect of bringing Unto The End to Stadia appealed to him: "Two things. Reach and immersion. Sara and I make games that break conventions and challenge expectations. Stadia’s great for us because it lets lots of players give Unto The End a try and see if it’s for them. It’s a friction-free, click-a-button, start-playing experience. Likewise, Unto has no loading screen, no main menu, you start the game, it loads and you’re playing. Just like Stadia."

Unto The End will launch on Stadia this winter, alongside its release on PC and consoles, including as a day one Game Pass title on Xbox One.
