If you haven’t been keeping up, here’s your reminder – Greak: Memories of Azur launches this month, and it’s only a few weeks away. Team17 and Navegante Entertainment will be releasing the game on August 17 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Greak: Memories of Azur sees players take control of a trio of siblings in a gorgeously hand-drawn 2D platforming adventure teeming with combat and puzzles to solve. The three characters navigate the treacherous world of Azur in an attempt to reunite, fight back against an invading army, and ultimately work towards building an airship that will let them escape with their lives.

It’s clear that the developers have gone to great lengths to ensure the three siblings are equally useful, and they each possess their own unique abilities to help players fight and find solutions to the many puzzles scattered throughout Azur. Main character Greak is the smallest of the bunch, allowing him higher agility and the ability to fit in small spaces. Meanwhile, his sister Adara can use powerful magic to assist in a variety of situations, while his brother Raydel is decked out in plenty of gear to help him be a formidable fighter.

If you own a Switch and are desperate to take a look at Greak: Memories of Azur, you’re in luck, as it has a free demo available exclusively on Nintendo’s console. Whether you need the demo to sell you on this one or already have your wallet out and ready to pay up, you’ll be able to pick the game up for $19.99 on all the aforementioned platforms, and there will even be physical versions available for PS5, Xbox, and Switch for anyone seeking to add it to their collection.

Billy will always claim he didn't intentionally get the platinum trophy in Snoopy's Grand Adventure, but he's lying.
