TORONTO, MAY 14, 2021 – Capybara Games has revealed today that Grindstone will release on PC via the Epic Games Store on May 20. Grindstone will also be getting an exciting new content update today on Apple Arcade and Nintendo Switch called The Fortune Grind!
 

Grindstone will include every previous update when it releases on the Epic Games Store on the 20th of May. Grindstone can also be your new PC “productivity companion,” thanks to the super innovative and groundbreaking windowed mode. Just don’t look TOO distracted on your next zoom call.

The Fortune Grind update introduces a new twist on Grindstone’s Daily Grind, tasking players to spin a wheel to try their luck at some helpful loot on their daily run. Be careful though, as you also run the risk of introducing new hazards and angry Jerks that will be sure to ruin Jorj’s day. The Fortune Grind update also unveils a new cave containing 10 additional perilous levels, the new Gold Health Potion item, and new entries to Hëlga’s Slöp Höuse recipe book.

This content update will be available today at no extra cost to Grindstone players on Nintendo Switch, and Apple Arcade across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV. The Fortune Grind will also be available on PC when Grindstone launches on the Epic Games Store. 

About Grindstone

Grindstone is a game of sword-slashing puzzle battles from the award-winning studio behind BELOW, Sword & Sworcery EP, Super Time Force Ultra, Critter Crunch, and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes! Grindstone first released on Apple Arcade in September 2019 to widespread acclaim, earning many awards and nominations. Grindstone has since come out on Nintendo Switch, where it has also garnered much acclaim and was one of the best reviewed Switch games of 2020.

Grindstone Mountain is overrun with vicious Creeps! Slay your way up its treacherous peak where fortune, glory (and death) awaits! 

It’ll take sharp puzzle skills and an even sharper blade to slice your way through the swarms of bloodthirsty Creeps dwelling within Grindstone’s dungeons. Battle bosses, loot resources, discover long-lost blueprints for powerful gear, all while eviscerating the innards from your deadly foes! Over 250 levels of intense puzzle-battling madness!

 

iam8bit & Capy are also working on a physical edition of Grindstone for Nintendo Switch, which comes with an exclusive set of custom creep-gut-colored crayons. Sam Webster’s original music for Grindstone is also being released as a double LP, featuring original artwork by Nuri Durr. Both are set to start shipping in 2021 and are available for pre-order.
