4The Gunk

The Gunk

This game is optimised for Xbox Series X/S

One of the newest games on this list, The Gunk took us by surprise when it released just before Christmas. Not that we didn’t expect it to be good; from the same developer that brought us Steamworld Dig, we expected great things. We just didn’t expect it to be quite so good. The first 3D game from Image & Form, The Gunk nails adventuring, set in a world that simply begs to be explored. This is undoubtedly one of the best single-player games you can play on Xbox consoles.

Kim said: “Short as it may be, my time with The Gunk has been wonderful. Image & Form’s move into the 3D realm has solidified it as a truly talented developer – and this may just be its best game yet. Beautiful, satisfying and engaging from start to finish, The Gunk is definitely worth getting stuck into.”
