Pinstripe is an emotionally charged adventure through Hell created entirely by a one-man team over the course of five years. Play as Teddy, an estranged ex-minister forced to venture through the frozen afterlife in search of his three-year-old daughter Bo, and her perverse kidnapper. Discover the dark secrets of Teddy’s past, and confront his sleazy, demonic nemesis, Mr. Pinstripe.
Thomas Brush, creator of award-winning indie games Coma and Skinny, reveals a gorgeous art style, breathtaking score, and chilling story with influences from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, and Alice in Wonderland.
Pinstripe has already been released on the PC a few years ago and is available for PC on Steam right now.
In 2016, Pinstripe was a finalist at the third SXSW Gaming Awards under the category ‘Gamer’s Voice Award (single player)’. Upon its release, the reviews were mixed. Jeremy Winslow, writing at GameSpot awarded the game 5/10, criticizing the narrative as pedestrian, and “failing to inspire emotional attachment in [its] characters”. For Winslow, this, and flaws in its puzzle design, combat and platforming overpowered the game’s rich atmosphere. At Time, Matt Peckham was much more positive, awarding the game 5/5.
Peckham described the game’s depiction of hell as “a melange of beauty and horror” and compared it to the works of Bosch, Bruegel, and Dante. He concluded the review, by reflecting on the themes raised by the game, “What does loss resemble? How does it sound? What if the museums to mistakes that we spend lifetimes assembling in our minds were a physical space?”
It should also be mentioned that because Pinstripe will be available on the Xbox One there are, of course, achievements for the game!
