Generalists tend to find their path later in life, but their wide range of knowledge and experience breeds a sense of creative agility that may elude their more-specialized peers. “Range” is a fascinating read chock-full of case studies and anecdotes that’ll soothe anyone wondering where their career is headed.

“Gris” is a game about bringing color and song to the world, and is one of the most visually striking video game experiences around. Featuring a scintillating score from Barcelona-based Berlinist, it starts with a mystical young woman singing in the open palm of an ethereal statue and develops into an other-worldly experience that delves into themes such as loss, pain, and endurance.
“Gris” is a visual feast featuring harsh deserts, lush forests, underwater caverns, and a world with buildings made of light. Each new world opens up new mechanics, and the player navigates the world with abilities that allow the protagonist to turn into a block of stone to withstand the winds of the deserts, or to fly. Winner of “Games for Impact” at The Game Awards 2019, “Gris” is an essential experience for gamers of all kinds. “Gris” is available on PC, Mac, iOS and Nintendo Switch.
