“Gris” is the Spanish word for “gray.” And you didn't ask, but gray is my favorite color. Though smartypants artists, or even a kid with crayons, will be the first to remind me that gray isn't actually a color. Gray is a color without color. Gray is...

Gris’ story is open to a range of interpretations, and it’s not important that you arrive at a specific meaning. Instead, in creating a well-constructed game, developer Nomada Studio has laid the foundations by which you can find your own sight and voice.

There are more words I could drop in here - gentle, whimsical, evocative, emotional, magical, ethereal, therapeutic - but if I've learned nothing else from Gris, it's the truth in that old adage, "a picture paints a thousand words". Do not miss it.

GRIS is, simply put, one of this year’s masterpieces. Both in the sense that it looks like a work of art and plays like an absolute dream. The platforming is smooth as silk, the world is a joy to explore, the puzzles offer the right amount of challenge and the emotional parts of the journey hit perfectly.

Painting Gris as a beautiful adventure is almost too obvious. Even amid the crumbling ruins that hint at better days, every element of this platformer emphasizes its undeniable loveliness. From the wide-angle shots and the ethereal music to the delicate...

GRIS conjures up feelings of sadness, nostalgia, excitement, and awe all in a moment. It tells the story of Gris, a girl who goes on a journey in search of her lost voice, but something else as well. I would be doing the game a disservice to reveal too...

But, no matter how much I wanted to, I couldn't – or at least couldn't feel the coveted emotion. The simplistic narrative is littered with imagery that expects ‘ooohs' and ‘aaahs' from a reverent audience for being even mildly obtuse. By collecting...

Gris is an incredible achievement, using its art, music, and gameplay to tell a thematically consistent story about a woman overcoming her grief. Despite the weighty subject matter, the way its protagonist's triumph over sorrow is reflected in...

Gris is, at times, a meditative, affecting exploration of complex emotions that uses its levels as a canvas for some of the most beautiful visual design in any platformer, backed by a fantastic score. At others, it's a maddeningly simple and confusing...

If nothing else, GRIS is gorgeous to behold.A boutique indie platformer in the same vein as something like Limbo or Braid, you control a nameless, voiceless, young girl as she elopes across a series of scrolling, watercolor landscapes - which act as a...
