Etcetera #30: Subtitles, Spotify, Gendered Languages

Hello.
I come to you with a request. A friend of mine has an Xbox and is looking for games for his 8-y-o daughter. She adored Alba, but was less into Super Lucky’s Tale, finding it a bit too hard. Any suggestions for low-stakes adventure/exploration/platforming games that might be a good fit? Please reply and let me know.
RIP Dean Stockwell. Quantum Leap was a big thing for us in the ‘90s and I enjoyed slowly discovering his other work.
