Obsidian Entertainment’s Grounded single player campaign was showcased during the recent Inside Xbox episode of April.
The game starts as the players hear the voice of a mysterious robot named BURG.L. He knows about a machine to turn the characters back to normal size, the problem is that the machine is broken. Players will have to be careful, as everything in the backyard will be able to kill the children. Players will be able to play co-op with friends in order to get a better chance of surviving.
The Grounded demo is being offered on Steam as part of their annual celebration of gaming, the Steam Summer Game Festival, an event annexed to Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest.
The game is a survival adventure game where players are somehow shrunk down to the size of an ant, as imaginable, the survival of a such a small creature is very hard, players will be tasked to forge and craft items to build a base that protects them from the elements and now huge and menacing insects.
