Quaint painting adventure Chicory: A Colorful Tale has arrived on the Nintendo Switch from today.

The launch was a surprise announcement during last night’s Nintendo Indie World showcase broadcast. In case you’re not familiar, you play as dog who calls themselves the number one fan of superstar artist Chicory. However, she’s gone missing, taking all the colour of the land with her. It’s up to you to wield her magical paintbrush to solve puzzles and help bring her back to restore the world to its former glory.

You’ll explore what starts off as a black and white world, where you can paint on almost anything. Paint is quite literally your power, and it gives this Zelda-like adventure its own unique spin. There’s over ten hours of gameplay, a world of 100+ animal characters and collectibles galore to find and dress up with.

Our Josh really enjoyed his time with the game too when it originally launched back in the summer. “Chicory: A Colorful Tale is bound to the template set forth by The Legend of Zelda, but, rather than offering reflexive glibness, or inking the affair with irony, its critique wraps warmly around its subject, like a scarf”. You can read the whole review for yourself here.

Chicory: A Colorful Tale is available from today on the Nintendo Switch. You can also nab it on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
