IGN can reveal that Grime – the bizarre, punishing action-RPG in which you play a stony body with a black hole for a head – will be released on August 2 for PC (via Epic Games Store, Steam, GOG, and Humble) and Stadia.
The grim-weird 2D adventure fuses action gameplay with RPG mechanics, including a very cool risk-reward system that sees you using a parry ability to absorb enemies’ powers to install as part of your own character’s build. You can check out a new trailer below:
Along the way, you’ll upgrade stats, as well as equip mutating living weapons to fight your way through a labyrinthine world. All of that work will help you fight against enormous boss characters, who in turn offer new abilities that let you travel to new places on the game’s twisting map.
