11th August - Copenhagen, Denmark - Graphic novel artist Ida Hartmann and Niila Games today announced that Stilstand is coming to PC (via Steam) and mobile (iOS and Android) on 27th August.


Another sip, another long drag, another swipe left. Trying to find yourself when your world is falling apart can be a lonely business. Stilstand is a darkly comedic interactive graphic novel following the grim yet hopeful journey of one woman through a summer riddled with anxiety and loneliness, trying to stay afloat in Copenhagen with the help from the shadow monster in her apartment. 

Based on the hand-drawn comics and personal writings from the danish graphic novel artist, Ida Hartmann, Stilstand is a personal and hand-drawn tale about the high expectations and fragile emotional life that many young people struggle with.

  • Flip through the pages of an interactive graphic novel and watch it come to life as you play.
  • Search for love and adventures, send text messages and scroll through strange social media feeds
