Update from the developer:

OK, this is it :] Just clicked that “Publish” button and the Playtest Demo is live and ready to be downloaded.

This Playtest Demo is about five to seven minutes long [or hours, if you wish to just look at the pretty scenery] and is intended to showcase GRUNND’s first hub - where it all starts. The player will meet the actual Hero of the story, as well as a couple NPCs.

We really hope that anyone who tries this out will spare a couple of minutes to fill out the form, which is available at the same place as the Playtest Demo [there is also a link in the game]. Obviously, we will not add dragons, even if someone asks for them, but the user experience is very important to us, since GRUNND is more of a mood piece.

For now there is no set time until which the Demo will be available. After gathering feedback data we will polish the Demo as much as our resources allow. The next step will be the game’s trailer and the race for funding - which scares bejeezus out of us.

We really need help from adventure gaming fans here to have this project reach the finish line.

Grunnd is a narrative heavy point and click adventure game.

Check out the Official Website here.

Quote
GRUNND is dark lynchian narrative heavy adventure game. It’s protagonist finds himself in a
parallel universe, which, although similar on the surface to our own world, is built entirely different.
He meets various bizarre characters in order to figure out where he actually is and how to get
back home.

In Tyr, where he ends up, things are pretty similar to ours. Main differences are in the fact, that
religious systems are almost non-present, but now and again our hero learns bits and pieces
about . And . Here superstitions known to us actually have factual base and real world appliance.
All story unveils in the town of Bytown, where our hero arrives by train after he falls asleep on the
way home after work.

The idea of GRUNND was born about three years ago and is a mixture of photography project
about social themes with intervened mystic parallel narrative; Southern Gothic vibes and people’s
somewhat narrow and deeply religious, and often nonsensical world views; David Lynch mood
and worldbuilding.

Game will be fully voiced [English version], feature a full length original soundtrack and consist
entirely from 100% specifically for GRUNND handcrafted visual material and assets. Game
will have multiple endings, things to miss or discover, no looping dialogues, which will
require some thought before saying one thing or another.

The game is made by Neoteric Rites studio - a legal entity born to make GRUNND happen. Now
we are working on demo/trailer in order to seek for funding for entire game’s development, as we
have day-jobs, kids and bills.

GRUNND will be available on PC only. Console ports possible, but that depends on funding and
time. Release date: Q4 2019 - Q1 2020.


Happy Gaming!

I think this would be appropriate then :

Dear Adventurers!

It’s DEMO time! We would like you to check out GRUNND demo and maybe drop a line back. All you have to do is to follow us on Twitter or join our Discord channel.

I know, I know, but the thing is, we really would appreciate some feedback. To be honest, I am afraid and feel intimidated by this laugh

Thanks and welcome, OlafsOsh_GRUNND. I played the demo... I look forward to seeing a little more.


Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody

Hey!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts as well! Looks like this playtest, albeit small, was a very good idea. Both - in boosting the morale and see some flaws that we need to work on.
We did not get any dragon requests, but one review was close to it :]
