I’ve been impressed so far this year that story-driven games on the Switch have continued to show up in force, but most of all that we’ve had a few that have been so touching without the need for any dialogue at all. In the case of A Memoir Blue it’s a powerful story about the relationship and bond between a mother and daughter, played out through all sorts of unusual but quite beautiful imagery. In order to keep you engaged there are some pretty mild but generally well-implemented puzzles, though on occasion it can be hard to understand initially what you may be expected to do in some circumstances. Regardless, the beauty and serenity the game offers up are a terrific and calming change of pace amidst an eShop awash in much more action-oriented fare.
