Developer Clover Bite, alongside publisher Akupara Games, are proud to launch the final chapter of their soulslike metroidvania today with the release of their third DLC and GRIME’s long-awaited debut on the Nintendo Switch. Parting Shade, the newest DLC, aims to challenge even the strongest of wills with a back-breaking new area built to put even veteran players to the ultimate test! Players will be able to purchase GRIME Definitive Edition on a discount for a limited time across PlayStation, Switch, and PC platforms.
“The developer boasts a solid 9/10 for its dark fantasy RPG on Steam, and thousands of very positive reviews overall. Much of the feedback refers to the game’s “well-defined parry system,” with some players going as far as stating that GRIME is “easily as good as Hollow Knight,” a platformer that arguably stands as one of the best to ever come from the genre” - Anna Koselke, PCGamesN.
GRIME first rooted itself in the metroidvania playerscape in 2021 with its anatomical horror, soulslike leveling progression, and innovative parry system. Creative Director, Yarden Weissbrot, saw the opportunity, the hunger, the drive for more GRIME and wanted to deliver on that possibility as his deep knowledge of the metroidvania playerscape saw that something was missing. This allowed Clover Bite the ability to fill that hole and create GRIME Definitive Edition, the ultimate way to explore GRIME including the base game and three free DLCs: Colors of Rot, Tinge of Terror, and the newly introduced, Parting Shade.
