[Update #2]: After two years in Early Access, Grounded will be launching in full on September 27th, 2022.

[Update]: Grounded's Update 0.4 has fleshed out the Pond area and added a bunch of new creatures

Grounded is Obsidian's miniaturized survival and crafting game set in the most dangerous environment of them all - the backyard! However, while Grounded is already pretty fun to roam around in, it does have a noticeable lack of content given that it has only recently launched into Early Access.

With that in mind, I am pleased to say that Grounded now has slightly more content as Update 0.3.0 has arrived a few days ago to spruce up the hedge area and add a few more building options to tinker with. The most exciting of these additions are the ziplines, which if you're like me and you love to build tall, offer both a fun and efficient way of getting around the map!

The update has also reworked how ant soldiers attack, made armor more effective across the board, as well as nerfed the bombardier beetle's melee attack so it's no longer death incarnate. Speaking of which, spider webs are now incredibly sticky and will snare both unsuspecting players and insects, so do make sure to watch where you're running, especially if you're trying to escape a spider!

You can also expect to see new perks, new color themes, a whole bunch of quality of life improvements, and all that kind of good stuff. To check out all of the details, as well as keep an eye on any future updates, you should head on over to the official website.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with a brief developer update discussing some of the above-mentioned changes:
