Get the bronze medal for January is Astroneer, a game that focuses heavily on crafting and exploration.
It was marketed for a lot of years on PC and other platforms, but it’s supposed to be like being at home on Switch.

It balances its power with an alluring giant space crate and a much more fun collect-craft-discovery loop.”

After first launching on Xbox late last year, it’s been fun to see this incredibly colorful and imaginative title coming to Switch.
Artistic escape tells the story of a folk singer who really aspires to be a rock star, but it’s more than that out there than that summary suggests. It’s a daring and innovative adventure designed to blast your ears and burn your retinas, in the best way possible. In our review we said the following – “The Artful Escape is a suspenseful movie. It’s true that the most exciting action sequences don’t get much use – both in terms of playtime and what they can give the story – and some graphics problems are scarce but it’s a pity now on the Switch though, overall, the strong point is the main, the rest is small, and it will chord with any dreamy rock star any. “
