Grime release date announced with new gameplay trailer

The upcoming indie title Grime now has a release date thanks to a new trailer that was shared by IGN. The release date for this upcoming action-adventure RPG is August 2, 2021 for PC and Google Stadia. See the full release trailer below.

Developed by Clover Bite with publishing duties handled by Akupara Games, the upcoming Grime title is an action-adventure title with a surreal twist. In the game you play as a character in a surreal land that features a slew of bizarre enemies. To defeat these enemies you will rely upon living weapons that alter their form and function. If that’s not enough there is a levelling system using traits you can upgrade to make yourself more deadly.

The official description of the title from the game’s website is as follows:

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.

Judging by the IGN trailer above, Grime, looks to be a nice sort of metroidvania meets Dark Souls. Combat and exploration appear to be the name of the game with this one. There also seems to be an interesting collection of bosses to fight in the game, with very strange designs.

As someone who enjoys these types of experience I will be looking at this title come release date. Be sure to check back then for a review.
