Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Ahr Ech have announced side-scrolling action platformer Pepper Grinder for Switch and PC (Steam). It will launch in 2023.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Pepper Grinder is an action-packed pirate adventure starring the titular Pepper, a seafaring soul with a passion for prospecting, and Grinder, her super-powered drilling device.
Shipwrecked and robbed of her treasure, Pepper must spin up her trusty sidearm to reclaim what the mischievous Narlings stole. Armed with Grinder, Pepper burrows through terrain and water, controls machines, and pulverizes all enemies blocking the way towards recovering her missing fortune – with interest!
Pepper’s progress will not be that simple, however, as mysterious beings begin to emerge from the shadows…
- Gritty Gameplay – Cruise through a colorfully animated world with precise movements, fluid drilling, and thrilling leaps.
- Thrilling Drilling – Chew through the world with Grinder and find new drill bits to ramp up the chaos and solve clever puzzles.
- Conquer and Collect – Pick up jewels and other riches during your adventure and cash them in at shops to power up Pepper, open up new paths on the world map, and snag collectible stickers for your sticker book.
