Publisher Akupara Games and developer Clove Bite have announced that GRIME is coming to Switch on today. This version of GRIME will be titled GRIME Definitive Edition, includes the “Parting Shade” DLC along with all other previously-released content.
GRIME has rooted itself in the Metroidvania playerscape with its anatomical horror, soulslike leveling progression, and innovative parry system. Creative Director, Yarden Weissbrot, saw the opportunity, the hunger, the drive for more GRIME and wanted to deliver on that possibility as his deep knowledge of the metroidvania playerscape saw that something was missing. This allowed developer Clover Bite the ability to fill that hole and create GRIME Definitive Edition, the ultimate way to explore GRIME including the base game and three free downloadable contents: “Colors of Rot,” “Tinge of Terror,” and the newly introduced, “Parting Shade.”
In GRIME, you control a nameless embodiment of destruction—hacking and slashing your way through an aberrant landscape where rock-formed monsters rule. Armed with various “living weapons” and a black hole head, you consume the essence of the fallen to strengthen your vessel and unlock powerful upgrades.
