Developer: Hollow Tree Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Shape of the World is an ephemeral first-person exploration game where the world grows around you in a procedurally populated environment. Exploration is about intentionally getting lost and the joy of being found again. Your presence is the driving force behind the evolving environment as you establish permanent monuments to mark your way. Without your presence, will the forest still come alive?

Shape of the World brings some rather strong elements to the table, but it also leaves the feeling of unfulfilled potential. It truly is a relaxing title, with an outstanding soundtrack to boot. But the sluggish speed combined with the limited interactivity, and short length, means this is probably best grabbed on sale, and not at its $14.99 launch price.
Shape of the World is a very different offering on the Switch’s eShop, and one that we are glad to have experienced despite its shortcomings. Describing it as a video game doesn’t feel quite right; it’s more of an interactive playground that lets you take a couple of hours out, switch off, and be treated to some thought-provoking aesthetics along the way.
Shape of the World is an incredibly intoxicating single player game dressed in breath taking artistry. The environment pulls you in, leaving you in constant states of awe that are fresh and fun. That this game is available on Nintendo Switch (and console, as well as pc) is also incredible as the sound track is simply exquisite - worth having on even if you aren't playing.
