Storytelling can take place in a wide variety of forms, and the breadth of games with a focus in that are on the Switch has been quite remarkable. LOVE has an interesting take, and not one that I think I’ve seen to date, with it mechanically being a puzzle game that allows you to manipulate a building a bit like a Rubik’s Cube to reveal vignettes of various people that tell some sort of story. The quality of them varies quite a bit, and not all of them really connected for me, but I will say that some were positively touching even if sometimes also tragic in some way. Unfortunately the puzzle aspect isn’t as strong, and if anything can be perplexing since there’s a lot of trial and error involved even in understanding what you’re supposed to be doing in places. You can figure it out but the needless frustration factor is a bit too high to make it an easy recommendation.
