Obsidian’s Upcoming Shrunken-RPG, Grounded, to Feature “Arachnophobia Mode”

Good guys Obsidian proving they are, indeed, good guys. The upcoming survival RPG, Grounded, will feature an “arachnophobia mode” for anyone afraid of the eight-legged fiends.

You may have heard about Grounded, Obsidian’s upcoming new game.

Looking like a video game adaptation of the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movie, Grounded sees you get shrunken down to the size of an ant. You then venture out into the wild worlds of your back garden.

Obviously, being mere millimetres in height, normal-sized creatures become looming monstrosities. And, for a select sub-section of the game’s potential fan base, that might be a problem.

For you see, if you’ve viewed the trailer, you’ll have spotted the game’s spiders. Obsidian has presented these eight-legged beasts as a stealthy predator who hunts the player down.

However, if you suffer from arachnophobia, these segments of the game might be unplayable for you.

Thankfully, Obsidian has come through and noted that Grounded will feature an “arachnophobia mode”. What this entails has yet to be announced.

“[Replying to another Twitter user] – the Grounded team is implementing an arachnophobia mode to help with those who aren’t fans of spiders and still want to enjoy the game!”

Obsidian added in the thread that the team is still doing research “as to what it will finally do”. However, “once [Obsidian is] ready to show it off, we will!”

Grounded is due out on Xbox One and PC via Game Pass and Steam Early Access on 28th July.
