Good lord. I remember when Devolver Digital used to deal exclusively in guns, gore and explosions, usually with some combination of all three. This is as far from the established Devolver brand as you could possibly get, yet instead of it being a worrying sign of dilution, they are intensifying it with diversity.

Devolver means indie excellence and this new trailer for GRIS shows they don’t have to rely on old formulas to bring it. This is a beautiful and artistic trailer that showcases the balletic platforming, sumptuous animation and surrealist art style. I’ve not seen 2D graphics as mesmerising as this since the Banner Saga.

GRIS, by the Barcelona based Nomada Studio, will be at Gamescom and PAX West later in August and currently has a PC and Nintendo Switch release planned.
