Grounded is a co-op survival action game developed by Obsidian Entertainment, studio known for such titles as The Outer Worlds, Fallout: New Vegas or the Pillars of Eternity series.

Mechanics

In Grounded, player characters are reduced to the size of ants and have to survive in the dangerous reality of American suburb's sleepy garden. Tasks that are simple for a man of standard dimensions become a real challenge for the heroes of the game. While playing, we are forced to collect resources, craft items and build a base using a variety of everyday objects.

During the game, we can choose between first- and third-person view. The world of the game is inhabited by both peaceful animals and aggressive creatures (e.g. spiders or ants), which hunt the players. We deal with our enemies using our own primitive weapons, such as spears and bows. We can also create armor and trampolines for fast travel through locations.

The game boasts extensive Artificial Intelligence modules that reproduce the behavior of animals. For example, ants function as colonies. After finding something interesting (e.g. us) ant scouts leave pheromones, which allow other ants to reach the same place or receive a warning against the players. Moreover, our development does not go unnoticed and our expansion will sooner or later bring the anger of the local fauna to us.

The fun is diversified by a technology tree. In it we slowly unlock better and better items, weapons and structures, which make it easier to deal with more and more serious threats. In addition to the typical sandbox gameplay, there are also many story missions.

Technical aspects

The game offers solo mode as well as cooperation for up to four people.
