Gris is a stunning watercolor adventure headed to Switch
Who says games can't be art?
Gris is the newest art game in town, and it’s looking quite lovely. Devolver Digital and developer Nomada Studio are bringing the world of Gris to life, and it’s coming to Switch at the end of the year.
The game, presented in beautiful watercolor artwork, tells the story of Gris, a young lost girl dealing with the aftermath of a painful event that leaves her without a voice. Players will guide Gris through a painterly world full of empty battlefields and crumbling ruins as they complete platforming challenges, puzzles, and other skill-based objectives to move the story forward.
Gris is largely being developed by artists, many of whom haven’t worked in games before, which explains the game’s gorgeous aesthetic. The game looks more like a moving work of art rather than a game, although the variety of puzzles and challenges sprinkled throughout should ensure that there’s something here for all sorts.
Gris arrives on Nintendo Switch this December.
