During the Annapurna Interactive Showcase today, a group of surprising collaborators announced that they would be working together on a new, unannounced game: Stanley Parable and The Beginner’s Guide creator Davey Wreden, Gone Home and Tacoma co-creator Karla Zimonja, Minecraft composer Daniel ‘C418’ Rosenfeld, and obviously, Annapurna itself.

Wreden and Zimonja appeared at the event in a plant-strewn room, drinking out of a fancy tea set and teased whatever it is they’re working on. They didn’t offer any concrete details, except to introduce Rosenfeld as the game’s composer and Annapurna as its publisher. It’s not clear if the tea was a hint or just a really cozy set dressing.

We’ve loved all four of Ivy Road’s founders’ aforementioned past creations: We found The Beginner’s Guide to be “thought-provoking and disarming” and said The Stanley Parable was “witty, unusual, and quietly discomfiting.” Tacoma gave us a glimpse of a “fascinating future” with “wonderfully written characters” while Gone Home was “one of the finest stories we’ve ever experienced in games.” 

And then there’s C418’s work, which includes the entire original Minecraft soundtrack and then some. So whatever Ivy Road is cooking up, it’s being built on an exciting foundation.

There were plenty more announcements out of Annapurna today, including other collaborations between the publisher and companies like No Code and Outerloop, as well as release windows for Stray and The Artful Escape and an expansion for The Outer Wilds.
