Today during the Xbox Games Showcase Thunderful revealed The Gunk. This new title will be exclusive to Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows PC when it releases next fall. This title stars a duo of gritty space haulers, struggling to make a buck as they chance upon an untouched planet brimming with life. They’ve come to gather alien plants and other valuable resources, and it looks like they’ve hit the jackpot. As they start uncovering dormant secrets of a shattered civilization, however, they must save the planet from the curse of a corruptive gunk parasite while desperately keeping from getting caught in a spiral of festering mistrust.
In a statement from Thunderful CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson:
“A bit into the development process it became obvious that The Gunk would be very hardware-demanding. We’ve always managed to keep our games lean, but The Gunk is all bells and whistles about to explode spectacularly. We had to make a choice: either we quiet it down considerably, or we go talk to the guys with the most powerful hardware. We decided to go talk to the guys with the most powerful hardware.”
This title is currently slated to be released sometime Fall 2021.
