[SWITCH REVIEW] Luna: The Shadow Dust (2020)

TL;DR VERSION: With its stunning storybook visuals, wonderful puzzle designs, adventurous themes, and an extraordinary, wordless narrative, this three-hour point-and-click proved to be one of 2020's best games and *might* be my personal Game of the Year.
