The Indie World broadcast this week had plenty of good games, including some excellent efforts that were squeezed into a sizzle reel near the end. One of these was GRIME, a ‘soulslike Metroidvania’ that’s been well received so far and is heading to Switch in Summer 2022.
It’s a title that’s earned plenty of fans on Steam, with ‘Very Positive’ user reviews to back up the critical acclaim highlighted in the trailer. Its ‘mutating weapons’ mechanic sounds intriguing, and we’re certainly hopeful that it can be well optimised for Switch.
Destroy… Absorb… Grow… GRIME is a fast and unforgiving Action-Adventure RPG in which you crush your foes with living weapons that mutate form and function, and then consume their remains with a black hole to strengthen your vessel as you break apart a world of anatomical horror and intrigue.
An unusual material collapses in on itself, the world shudders and contracts, and suddenly you are squeezed into existence.
What awaits you is a world unknown, alien in its own familiarity, and you must survive what terrors you face. Explore your surreal surroundings, absorb the many enemies you encounter, and use their own traits against them as you let yourself become far more than you once were.
GRIME lets you play to your preference, upgrading only those traits you feel most suited to your unique style. You’ll find there is more than one way to break open an enemy as you move through a variety of evocative environments, meet their inhabitants, and discover the source of their madness.
It already has an eShop page for those that want to add it to their wishlist.
