Grounded cover reveal (GameInformer)

Dec 12, 2018

Obsidian has made a name for itself within the RPG space, having worked on titles including Pillars of Eternity, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Outer Worlds. A small team within the studio wanted to do something a little different with Grounded, a survival game that takes place within the confines of a single backyard. If that sounds like a small chunk of real estate for a game, there's a twist: You've been shrunken down to about a centimeter, which makes encounters with aphids, ants, and – of course – spiders, potentially deadly.

For our latest cover story, we played Grounded for several hours and had lengthy discussions with the team. We learned how they landed on its Honey, I Shrunk the Kids-like setup, what working within that tiny scale meant for its design, and how they've adapted to their new working-from-home reality.

    That's a good start!
  • A @ Augment:
    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?
  • A @ Augment:
    So that a user can only vote once per thread
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
  • A @ Augment:
    Wow what a fantastic resource. Thank you very much for the help
