Nintendo has provided some Nindie updates for us, including the release date of ethereal indie game, GRIS, which is due to hit the Switch on December 13.
GRIS comes from publisher Devolver Digital and tells the powerful story of a young girl named Gris, who has suffered loss in her life. The game follows Gris’ emotional journey though a serene and evocative world, free of danger, frustration and death. There are light puzzle and platforming elements, along with optional skill-based challenges for those craving a little more action.
With delicate artwork and detailed animation, GRIS is shaping up to be a particularly interesting indie game that we’ll be keeping an eye on.
The Switch has plenty of indie content to offer fans this holiday season. Here’s a sample of existing and upcoming Nindie titles:
- The critically adored Guacamelee! body slams its way to Nintendo Switch. The first game, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, is now available, with Guacamelee! 2 coming in December.
- Hungry for more Overcooked! 2? For only $5.99, the Surf ’N’ Turf DLC includes 12 new beach-themed campaign levels, new Versus and Kevin levels, new chefs, and new recipes for kebobs and smoothies. (The full version of game is required to use DLC.)
