A man without memory of who he is or what is going on around him must face a dystopian world set in the relative future. As the only survivor from an over-run security bunker, he must face a ravaged world populated by death-bringing machines and suboptimal atmospheric conditions. As he wanders the ruins of a large city he is totally alone... or is he? Can he discover what the source of the devastation is.. and, more importantly, discover his own identity? This is the story of what follows.

Hello Everyone!

I have spent the past month working on everything from interactive items (Holocube, Consumables) to physics objects to writing up an early draft of the story/plot/characters! That said, there's a ton of interesting stuff going on.

Since I wanted to show a bit more than the usual pictures and such, I put together a short video log.

My plan is to have at least one of these each month alongside regular written posts:

On a side note, I apologize for the delay in updates. Most of my focus lately has been on developing the plot and characters (which I can't really do an update about).

My plan is to get the majority of the story and such written out now so that in the future I can focus on the assets/level design/gameplay aspects of G.R.I.T.

I can always use feedback, so please leave a comment about any questions/concerns that you may have!

Until Next Time,

Voice acting sounds quite professional for an alleged one-man effort.

I swear I sent you a reply to this before? Anyways, The crowd sound of children screaming was a recording of kids playing around a fountain that I got while in Italy. As for the PA System lady, she was synthesized by me. There are only a few time's I've used royalty free sounds: The people screaming in G.R.I.T. Trailer 1 for example :) I was responding to you from my phone earlier, and I thought I had posted directly here unless I am mistaken? Sorry about that!

I'm glad you are interested in it ^_^ It's going to have an emphasis on exploration and some ties to the traditional fps later on in the game. The first part, while in the bunker, I like to consider more like amnesia in the sense that it is just you, a flashlight, and your ability to analyze your environment :) The second part in the main city will start you off with an ineffective stun gun-type gameplay. The stun gun is not very useful in combat, and is directed more towards puzzle solving and stealth-based combat. As you progress, you will eventually get things such as makeshift guns and some nice pre-disaster weapons. However, there will always be a less-vhazardous way to deal with most situations ;)

Thanks! I Appreciate the kind words. Most of the game is going to take place in a city. The bunker is just the starting area :) If you have any questions, feel free to create a thread on the G.R.I.T. Forums.
