I'm having trouble finding games on the switch that I like. I prefer slower paced puzzle type solving games, but with a sense of adventure where you have to navigate your way to the next puzzle. The best game I've ever played was Machinarium and I'm looking for something that style. We played Trine 1 and 2 and they were pretty good, but the puzzles got very redundant quickly. Any other games I should consider?

Oh. I was about to recommend piczle lines dx, but I guess you want more of an adventure kinda game.

Breath of the Wild has several good puzzles. I guess.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Captain Toad sounds like a perfect fit, as it's a puzzle platformer (Toad can't jump so you have to solve environmental puzzles in order to progress).

Okami HD & Darksiders: Warmastered might be good picks as well, if you like traditional Zelda like games.

@wafflesngravy Inside and Limbo are the games you're looking for. Slow paced, brilliant puzzles, interesting worlds, beautiful graphics and sound design.

They are best played in one or 2 sittings. Both take about 3 to 4 hours to complete but you'll want to go back for 100% completion.

I can't recommend them enough, Inside is one of the best games I've ever played.

@wafflesngravy If you have a PC (doesn’t need to be a powerful one) I’d recommend Return of the Obra Dinn. It was one of the best puzzle games I’ve ever played.

It’s just a great overall experience that is essential for anyone who ever wanted to feel like a detective.

@OorWullie
Inside looks pretty interesting actually. The trailer says blood and gore, how bad is it? I usually play with my 12 year old daughter. We're pretty laid back in the way we raise her, but is it too much for a kid?

@wafflesngravy it's not like "guts away! Turn on the blood fountain!" gory, but there's definitely some body horror.

I'd recommend watching a gameplay video first.

@wafflesngravy Some other interesting suggestions for you might be the following games available for the Nintendo Switch:

Forma 8
I and Me
Yoku's Island Express
Death Squared
Midnight
Toki Tori 2+
Tetra's Escape
The Bridge
Golf Peaks
Back to Bed
Super Chariot
Embers of Mirrim
Oceanhorn
Unraveled 2
Art of Balance

Most if not all have gameplay trailers in the Nintendo eShop, but at the very least there will be some screen shots, so you can check those out first.

Most games are a combination of platforming and puzzling, others are just puzzle games, but still quite entertaining, well, in my opinion at least...

Hope you find some nice ones among them.

I want to recommend Baba Is You, but don't think it fits the adventuring part in your request, unfortunately

Still very good puzzle game though!
