GRIS, an upcoming puzzle-platformer by Nomada Studio and Devolver Digital, will be releasing on Windows PC, Mac (both via Steam), and the Switch December 13th.
You play as Gris, an emotionally damaged young girl trapped within her own reality. The game is designed to be more of a narrative-focused experience, with light platforming, puzzles, and some skill-based challenges that can be skipped if you merely wish to see the story unfold. The launch date announcement was accompanied by a new trailer, which you can find above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
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.
