Jack Boreham Gris seems interesting. The artwork is gorgeous, and the game has this calming feeling. Admittedly, it's a bit of an emotional game, but I can see how beneficial it can be for some: "Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her 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." Here's the trailer. Let me know what you think:

Mónica Freitas I LOVED Gris. Everything from the art style, gameplay and deep story was fantastic. Definitely, an indie everyone should play.

One of my favorite indie games on Switch is Return of the Obra Dinn. It's a first-person mystery game set in 1807 after the merchant ship Obra Dinn drifted into port after being declared missing for five years. The gameplay is based on logical deduction as you piece together what happened to the crew. It is a super unique game and one of the best indies that I have ever played. It's one of those games that I wish I could go back and experience for the first time again.
Mónica Freitas core blimey, that's a beautiful looking game. I've heard of Gris, but I've never played it. Indie games like that show why small niche titles can not only look the best but play the best. It reminds me of one of my favorite titles, Child of Light, similar, just a slightly different art style. It also looks like Xbox indie classic Ori, which I adore. , where can I play that? It looks incredible! Mónica Freitas, if you get into gaming, would you prefer indie titles over big AAA games?
Jack Boreham Child of Light seems amazing! I have to say these indie games are appealing to my artsy nature – they are beautifully made. I wouldn't say no to trying the big AAA games, but I'm very attracted to the visuals, and games like Gris meet that taste. Where can I play Child of Light? I'm invested now.
Jack Boreham, oh man, there are way too many to choose from.
I'm gonna have to go with Celeste, though. It's one of the more polished platforming titles to come out in recent years, has charming art and an amazing soundtrack. What makes it the GREATEST, however, it's a poignant way of addressing mental health through a relatively simple game. Celeste proved you could have an incredibly powerful story without the AAA studio narrative experience.

Huge shout out to the Messenger as well. On the surface, it's a modern clone of a classic Ninja Gaiden game, but it has a rad twist about halfway through the game that makes creative use of art styles to give you something really special. The soundtrack is one of my all-time faves, and the writing is some of the best I've seen in the genre. It's one of the few games to make me laugh out loud.
