Heavy metal shoot ’em up GROOD coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch on October 23

Currently available for PC.


Drageus Games will release Claudio Catalano and CC_ARTS-developed heavy metal shoot ’em up GROOD for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on October 23, the publisher announced.

GROOD first launched for PC via Steam in March 2018.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:


GROOD is an indie 2.5D shoot ’em up made with spare robot parts and heavy metal.

The gameplay blends classic shoot ’em up mechanics with modern low poly graphics, particles, shaders, and a hardcore soundtrack.

Journey through different environments and all kinds of weather, from day until night. Annihilate an army of machines, and afterward, annihilate their bosses—go all the way to confirm that your battle paid off.

Travel through woods, swamps, cities, frozen lands, deserts, and more. The dynamic weather system of the game means that your battle will take place in a different background every time you play.

A forest will look wildly different under the rain at sunrise, in the noonday sun, and during an overnight snowfall.

You’ll face different enemies in different gameplays. Small, big, slow, fast: just GO FIGHT THEM ALL.

  • Super fast gameplay.
