While definitely not the sort of game we’re used to seeing Gearbox publish, Blanc was one of the games that grabbed my attention during today’s Nintendo Direct Mini. In Blanc, you’ll play as a wolf cub and a fawn who have been separated from their families following a great snowstorm. Only by working together can they hope to make their way home.
Cooperation will be required as well, because this is a two player only title, though you can play either locally or online. The wolf cub is small and can get into tight spaces while the fawn can jump further and climb. Together they’ll be able to overcome the obstacles before them.
Blanc is completely text free, letting the visuals carry the storytelling. This looks like a great decision to me because it is a striking title, hand drawn and in black and white.
I know I’m looking to this adorable looking game. Blanc will launch in February 2023 for both Nintendo Switch and PC.
