The game launched for Switch and PC in December 2018, before hitting iOS in August 2019 and PlayStation 4 in November. It earned rave reviews at launch, including GameSpot's own 9/10 review.
Gris is a puzzle platformer that deals with themes of grief, loneliness, and pushing on through dark times. It's also absolutely gorgeous, thanks to its painterly art style.
