Grotto is an original adventure game, allowing you to take on the role of a fortune-teller, whose predictions shape the fate of both individuals and the entire community. The game was developed by an independent studio Brainwash Gang, known for Nongunz.
What's interesting, the project was originally created as a management simulator, requiring the player to manage resources and plan the development of the settlement. With time, however, one of its mechanics, associated with the stars and constellations, became the main theme on which they decided to build the entire gameplay.
Grotto takes us on a journey to a fantastic world inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The main character of the game is a fortune-teller, who lives in the cave. Every day he is visited by members of the tribe, who ask him for advice on how to cope with their problems or ask about their future. Their fate is in our hands, shaped by our divination and what the stars and dice show us (or rather, what we want to see in them).
In Grotto we observe the action from a first person perspective (FPP). The game takes place entirely in a cave where the main character lives. When a member of our tribe visits us, we have to listen to him and then look at the stars, whose light falls into the cave through a hole in its vault. By drawing lines through the luminous points in the sky, we draw specific constellations. At the same time we have to keep in mind that each constellation has a different meaning, and the figures we see in the sky will influence the fate of a particular person, and sometimes the whole community. The same applies to the throw of the dice on a special board, which allows us to contact the dead or similarly predict the future.
The graphic design of Grotto combines 2D and 3D elements. The whole was kept in a dark style bringing to mind Darkest Dungeon series.
