Nomada Studios and Devolver Digital have announced the launch of their new 2D adventure Gris, coming to PC and Nintendo Switch on December 13, 2018. In the game you control a young girl called Gris as she travels the world trying to deal with her own painful experience, and the game looks to explore this in new and different ways. With a serene art style and ambient music, this looks set to be a different kind of gaming experience.
Official blurb, describing more of the game below:
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 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.
