Paradise Marsh Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Paradise Marsh is a pleasantly surprising experience that uses its relaxing, bug catching gameplay to explore the complex philosophies of life and death. This game comes from developer Etienne Trudeau and manages to carve its own unique space in the relaxing-gaming niche that games like Animal Crossing and Slime Rancher call home. Though it waxes poetic at times and has some secrets that feel like they should result in something more, the overall experience is short, sweet, and successfully says everything it wants to. Paradise Marsh begins in the sky, though this doesn’t last long as the player causes all the constellations to break apart and fall to the marshes below. The player then wakes up in the marsh with nothing but a bug net and view of a mysterious black monolith. From here, it’s up to players to explore this world and catch the variety of animals that dot the landscape, starting with a little tadpole. The gameplay of Paradise Marsh is simple, with the player walking and jumping around in search of animals and secrets.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

When catching an animal, they are added to the player’s notebook which provides some clues about where to find and catch things like beetles and frogs, a poetic description that hints at what philosophical view each represents, as well as how many of them are necessary to catch to complete their constellations. The marsh itself is an infinite loop that cycles between themed biomes such as one filled with Tori gates and paper lanterns, where the sky is warm and calm, which can transition into a land of snow filled with campfires and snowmen. Some animals have unique conditions for where they can be found. Moths, for example, can only be found under light poles at night while tadpoles can only be found in shallow bodies of water. A lot of these areas are only found in specific (and sometimes rare) biomes, so it’s crucial for players to learn these patterns and quirks to successfully catch all the animals. As animals are caught, their stars return to the sky and when looking up at night, players can interact with the stars to listen to the various animals and hear their unique personalities, as well as what they represent to the story.

Meet a wide cast of lovely celestial misfits in this story-rich adventure.

Poetry and philosophy are at the heart of this experience. Whether it’s the stars, the various birds that speak in poems, or the various messages in bottles, each of them offers a different perspective and gets players emotionally invested as time goes on – though some poems are more successful than others. The weakest of these comes from the birds, as it’s unclear if they’re hints to secrets, paths, and animals or if they’re just spouting rhyme and prose that’s meant to stand on its own. This uncertainty is Paradise Marsh’s biggest issue, and it includes more than just the birds. There are many secrets that players can interact with, such as the snowmen, flower seeds, chopped wood, and tree houses. When interacting with the latter two, the player will be rewarded with an instrument that unlocks an achievement when all are found and played, but nothing seems to happen in-game. Bottled messages are also difficult to find towards the end, enough so that the desire to have something to help locate them grew increasingly stronger. While it’s perfectly fine to have things like this be present as something fun or to add to the game’s philosophy. The Last Hero of Nostalgaia

players are left feeling disappointed by this part of the game’s content as that uncertainty lead to an hour of experimenting only for nothing to happen. Despite this, Paradise Marsh clearly communicates what it wants to say and the questions it wants the players to consider. Much like life, will players take their time and explore or rush through to see the ending? Will they swing their net methodically or wildly in hopes of catching something? With beautiful art, subtle sound design and music by Disasterpiece, and well-written poetry that shows a deep understanding of philosophy, Paradise Marsh leaves players reflecting on what they’ve experienced long after it ends and that is more than enough reason to recommend this game. One of my clearest lockdown memories is of going for a lunchtime walk with Olaf Stapledon. It was somewhere near the start of things, I think, no cars on the roads and those government mandated exercise breaks still feeling weirdly illicit. There is a stretch of the South Downs behind my house which I am ashamed to say I had never visited until Covid. One morning I set out over the gentle grassy hump of its hill.

Listen to lovely little poems told by charming birds.

Over the buried spine of the thing, with the almost indescribable vastness of Stapledon’s novel Star Maker playing in my headphones. Star Maker is all about a journey through the cosmos – deep into space and out the other side, really. But that day its wild intergalactic journey actually served to root me more deeply in the landscape I was exploring. I remember the broken chalky earth where the badgers make their sets, the dew pond with its looping swallows, a lonely bench pointed at nothing where I sat in silence for a space of time that was maybe twenty minutes, maybe an hour. I was learning, all the time. Over the course of that morning ramble I learned afresh how to be in nature.And this is exactly what Paradise Marsh teaches. It’s a small game, but also a gigantic one: truly a Stapledonian trick of time and space. I load it up and explore a colourful endless wetlands, cycling through day and night, spring, summer, autumn and winter. There’s an objective of sorts – I’m armed with a net as I plod around and I have a book of creatures to capture – but it’s an objective I have not really focused on for the most part.

Instead I wander. I watch and listen, I see the different shades of the sky as it moves from peach to strawberry yogurt to dark bubbling storm clouds. I enjoy the rain one moment and the snow the next. I enjoy the silence – my silence. This gets to the heart of it, actually. Normally when I play a game, I am filled with words: I am pondering how to write about it, how to get into it, what I might say about it. The gift of Paradise Marsh, I reckon, is the silence it brings. I played in a kind of cheery fugue, if such a thing is possible. The room had disappeared along with the noise of the road and my cat asking for dinner. Then I loaded up Google Docs a few minutes back and realised I was still wordless and empty headed, and that this space and silence in the head is what the game had given me. So now I have to construct the experience from memory – I get to play Paradise Marsh twice. I can tell you that in the game I walk around this fuzzy landscape – at times, the entire thing looks like it’s been rendered with those huge wet markers you get at Bingo – and the game reveals itself as a series of happy discoveries. The trees change from oak to pine.

Relax and enjoy nature, There’s no quest markers, no mini-maps and no time limits.

The sky darkens or the sun rises and stains the world a lurid Tango orange. I pick a direction and move from water to earth, water to earth, and come across a pile of stones I might skip over the surface of a river, or a bottle filled with a poem. The landscape repeats and jumbles. I can never get to the end of it, but like one of those old Tom and Jerry cartoons I move past familiar things quite regularly. The landmarks cycle: a tyre swing, a moss-speckled windmill, an old tractor half eaten up by grass. There is always a touch of dereliction, human stuff giving way to the inevitable. An overhead light will flicker and I’ll only see the flicker when I compare it to the clear beam of the god rays lancing through clouds. A bin will be surrounded by rings of scattered trash, pulled out and discarded by birds perhaps. The game’s distinct spaces play into the animal catching stuff: moths appear at night but like a light source. Tadpoles stick to shallow water. The animals make noises and shapes too: I have been lured to them by a sparkle on the horizon and a chirp or chime. When I catch them, the thrashing connection of the net is almost jarring in such a quiet space.

And we’re back to Stapledon, I think: the animals I collect eventually become stars and constellations that hover over me as I continue to explore. A nice distraction, but the game’s appeal lies elsewhere. The more I play the more I realise that I would dearly love to visit Paradise Marsh in real life. In the game, at least, I can linger for days and weeks due to the accelerated passage of day and night. This is a game about nature and about us. It’s about what nature gives us and what it asks of us – about what it draws out of us while we are present, and leaves us with when we have gone away. More than meets the eyes, although what they meet is a wonderful exploration of nature, weather, time, seasons and their many many colours. Movement mechanics are enjoyable and if you’re well practiced you can get around really quickly. A lot of toy-like interactions make the whole marsh feel as interactive as possible. The writing is funny and witty, and manages to ask compelling questions about where you are and the net you were given. There’s surprisingly a lot of introspection to be had while playing this game. The soundscape is complex and gives hints to where you should go next. Highly recommended!

This game is poetically calming. Its charm comes from the soothing ambience and its mundane yet rewarding task of catching bugs (and amphibians, who have managed to sneak into the roster). The critters also give you company; every one of them is unique, and you can’t help but smile at each line they say. You can see some of yourself in each one, and I’ve personally felt a bit sad when they all said what they’ve had to say. The secrets and achievements of this game are a nice little rest from the bug chasing, pitstops and little things along the way; though i am a completionist, so I’ve had to walk in a straight line to finish the tasks, which wears off the ambience of the game. The hidden baseball minigame was very unexpected, and it should’ve been an achievement. I would also like to mention the instruments achievement, and specifically the can instrument for how heartwarming it was. I’m also at a loss for the phone number, and I sadly seem to be softlocked at 11 critters out of 12 collected in the Steam achievements (even though I collected them all). Who knows, maybe the little Cricket is right in there being a hidden bug. Batora: Lost Haven
