A few months ago, I talked about games like Bastion and Transistor that have really beautiful and inspiring visual styles. Those games were developed by Supergiant Games, and I finally got to play their most recent game Pyre. Once again, I was blown away by the visuals. The game revolves around a group of nomads participating in a sort of spiritual sport where three players have to act as one. On top of having these sections, the game also has a lot of story with interesting (and visually impressive) characters. And just like with Bastion and Transistor, the soundtrack was amazing as well: I strongly recommend you give Pyre a try.
I recently played an adventure/puzzle game called Rakuen and it really touched my heart. It's about a boy who has to stay at a hospital, but his mother comes to visit him and leads him to a magical world using a storybook. The creator is Laura Shigihara, who did music for Plants vs. Zombies and To the Moon. I particularly loved the music: The game is on sale on Steam right now, so I'd give it a look: https://store.steampowered.com/app/559210/Rakuen/ You won't be disappointed!
I recently played 'A Hat in Time', a game that harkens back to the 'collectathon' platformers of yore. It's an uncommon example of a Kickstarter project gone right, and I really enjoyed almost everything about it. One thing I thought was really amazing was that the lead artist on the team made a unique splash screen for almost every single mission in every level, each with its own distinct atmosphere. It always makes me really happy to see this level of dedication - beautiful illustrations like these really get you hyped to experience the story behind them. If you're interested, the amazing artist behind these is https://twitter.com/cyanatar, although I don't know if she uses ArtByte. What are some beautiful splash screens or illustrations you've seen in games?
