Devolver Digital and developer Nomada Studio have revealed GRIS – a stunning 2D narrative experience that’s coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC in December.
Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her own world, dealing with a painful experience in her life. Her journey through sorrow is manifested in her dress, which grants new abilities to better navigate her faded reality. As the story unfolds, Gris will grow emotionally and see her world in a different way, revealing new paths to explore using her new abilities.
Free of danger, frustration or death, players will explore a meticulously designed world brought to life with delicate art, detailed animation, and an elegant original score. Through the game light puzzles, platforming sequences, and optional skill-based challenges will reveal themselves as more of Gris’s world becomes accessible.
GRIS looks mighty impressive, whilst the focus on offering a narrative experience as opposed to a challenging one certainly adds to the appeal. I’m looking forward to trying this out later in the year.
