    Nope! Nothing at all. Just "No Data" for the GC achievements.

    Loving this so far and its a beautiful game. Played it on my ipad mini 3 first and some it crashes back to the home screen but that might becasue that only had 1gb of memory. On my iphone X it's been buttery smooth and no crashes or bugs so far

    Great to hear! I’ll get going again with it, rather than wait for an update.

    Just completed the game.
    If you are even slightly interested, you must buy it and play till completion (took me around 5 hours, but I miss some secrets).
    Even just the ending is so good, still have goosebumps.
    I think I liked this even more than Limbo and Inside.
    Absolute masterpiece, I’m so glad I waited to buy it on PC and Switch hoping it will come to iOS (flawless port btw, played mostly on iPhone X with AirPods).
    If not for another game I can’t talk about, would be easily my GOTY, and it’s close anyway/I’m undecided (but I have more than 100 hours on the other one).

    Also, it was MUCH more game than I expected reading some articles about it.
    Some clever puzzles too.

    Highly recommended.

    Ah, that explains the problems I was having with my Bluetooth headphones this morning. The sound worked for a second then I got a loud scratching sound followed by no sound. Glad they’re fixing it but I’ll probably have it beat by then. *looks around for Apple earbuds*

    Weird, I played all game with AirPods (both on iPhone and iPad) and never got a problem.

    Does anyone know how to check if you got all secrets in the game?
    And does anything change, ending wise, if you do so? I think I got them all but 1 I couldn’t figure out how to reach but forgot where.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just casually figured it out. The game just got even better.

    You can check what you are missing in a secret room in the final temple, go down instead of completing the game going up

    The gameplay looks tiny on the vid. Anyone know how small the character is on an iPhone 8?

    The camera is dynamic, pulling in and out depending on the task, scene, etc. On some sequences, the character looked small even while playing on my Switch on a 52” tv. Sometimes, the environment is the protagonist.

    My concern is that I may not be able to clearly view the character during gameplay. What percentage of the time is the camera pulled out to the point the character is practically a speck on the screen as shown on the vid?

    Tough question. Hard to say actually. I'd say less than 5%? The game never pulls you out that far when there's something you need to do (other than just walking, I mean). I wouldn't worry about it.

    I really would t worry about the sequences with the tiny character...it’s tiny even on a huge TV from the couch....it’s so by design.
    I played the whole game almost exclusively on iPhone X and didn’t have any problem.
    If you really can’t see where Gris landed...just jump or move a bit (you can’t die in the game).

    Also....so much for Gris being a ‘short’ game.
    I’m trying to find all suns because I’m pretty sure it will unlock something in the temple and damn some are really hard and demanding....AWESOME.

    I think I’m liking Gris even more than Inside (which is a masterpiece as well).
    Even replaying it immediately after completing it leave me with open mouth in awe....some sequences are so powerful and epic!!!

    Just one sun to go....but I'm going crazy because I have no idea where to look, I think I explored every pixel of this beautiful world.

    Just GLORIOUS.

    Almost 12 hours later I finally found all suns and as I was hoping was awesomely rewarded.
    This changes everything!!!

    A real masterpiece.

    It's absolutely dumbfounding to see people making videos of this now (and older reviews on YouTube) calling it "guhriss". You'd think with how everything in this game is meticulously and purposefully beautiful, a Spanish dev team would actually not name it something as ugly as that. It's Spanish for gray, folks! As such, it's pronounced like you would pronounce "grease".

    Still love you bud! :p

    Think it may be the ALL CAPS title that's misleading. Perhaps if it had been normal there'd be more inclination for everyone to poke around and check out how to pronounce it? *shrugs*

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread. I seen this is launching in android and it made me think I never bought this either somehow....so many games I didn’t get. Really thinking about it.
