Nomada Studios and Devolver Digital have released a new launch trailer for Gris ahead of its scheduled release tomorrow on the Switch eShop and Steam. The emotionally charged platformer definitely reminds us of a 2D imagining of thatgamecompany’s ‘Journey,’ and is shaping up to be one of the most artistically unique titles to launch this year.
Here is Devolver Digital’s synopsis of the game that was included in the description of the launch trailer on YouTube:
“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.
Gris is a serene and evocative experience, 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 launches for the Nintendo Switch and PC on Dec 13. For more info on the indie title, you can head to the game’s info page on Nintendo’s website.
