Reviews

“Magnificent game, very poetic, artistic. A pleasure to discover this strange city, through an exploration accompanied by the haunting narrator's voice. The storyline is very interesting and everything is played out intuitively, without stress. A real pleasure. GRUNND is one of my favorite games out of all I've played here in this INDIE LIFT 2020 jam. Well done!”

“I knew I would love it, when I read the story/description. Sometimes you just immediately fall in love with something without even having played or watch it and then it's so awesome when you start playing or watching it and all your expectations come true🙂 Added to my wishlist... And now I need to keep on playing.”

“If the game is as good as the demo, it's a sure contestant for the "Game Of The Year 2022".”

About This Game

In this beautifully crafted, fully voice-acted adventure, you find yourself fighting to stay awake on your evening train ride home from work until sleep finally takes you… Uh oh! You’ve missed your stop.

In a panic, you jump off at the next station and attempt to get your bearings. Unfortunately, getting a grasp on exactly where you’ve ended up turns out to be more difficult than you’d thought.

The people you encounter here are strange, and while they fancy themselves helpful in their own ways, they aren’t seemingly helpful in the ways that would see you quickly on your journey back home. The air here is thick and strange, and just beyond the reach of your senses something ethereal and omnipotent observes your every move from the sky.



GRUNND is a unique take on the point-and-click genre with platformer-inspired locales, fast travel, and branching multiple-choice events that the player will begin to unfold from the very beginning of their journey.

GRUNND is more interested in making you think through the complex story beats it presents than through overly convoluted puzzles. You’ll encounter challenges to solve and overcome, of course, but these will be tied into the interactions you have with the various characters you meet along the way. The rich story of GRUNND concerns itself with you as a protagonist, surely, but equally it shines a spotlight on the world around you and the stories of its sometimes-bizarre inhabitants.

The gameworld is inspired by the works of Franz Kafka and David Lynch, with a setting that sprinkles the game’s style with droplets of Southern Gothic and Black Metal as well. As much as GRUNND is about its characters, it’s about the introspective journey of the player, as well.

Enjoy our demo, get excited for the complete story to come, and don’t hesitate to get in touch and let us know your thoughts!
