Grounded is the upcoming survival adventure game from Obsidian. It shrinks players down to the size of bugs and tasks you with surviving in a now gigantic backyard. Think, Honey We Shrunk the Kids the video game. Ealy footage has made the game look like a blast. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to try it out for ourselves. Today, Obsidian announced their plans to bring the single-player demo to the Xbox Insider program and the Steam Game Festival next month.

If you’re looking to try out Grounded on Xbox One, you’ll need to register to be an Xbox Insider. And, because the Insider demo is happening on a first-come-first-serve basis, I’d suggest getting yourself squared away as soon as possible. Of course, you can’t download it until the demo goes live, but it’s always better to be prepared upfront.
However, if you’re unable to get in on time, you can still check out the demo on Steam. As part of the Steam Game Festival, the single-player demo will be available to download and play. Regardless of where you play it, Grounded seems like a game well worth checking out. As mentioned above, some of the gameplay shenanigans I’ve seen thus far make it look like it has a chance to be, at worst, a gaming mainstay for your friend group.
Grounded‘s demo runs from June 8-14 on Xbox One and PC. The game is set to launch on both platforms July 28. If you’re interested in checking it out, be sure to give Obsidian’s site a look. It has full instructions for how to sign up for the Xbox Insider program and what to do when launch day hits.
