High Voltage Software’s The Grinder just can’t get a break. Originally it was a Wii exclusive Left 4 Dead style shooter, and still is in its current build on the Wii. The title then shifted focus to a top down shooter on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, similar to High Voltage’s Eerlier title, Hunter: The Reckoning.
So, where does it stand today? Well, currently the title isn’t exactly moving anywhere. According to High Voltage Software’s Eric Stoli they’re still looking for a publisher. As for the status of the game itself, it is hasn’t moved much from the previous work we had seen on it, remaining still in a “vertical slice status.”
The company is open to the idea of changing the focus of the title. Some ideas they have right now push for more action packed gameplay, on the flip side they have also been looking at adding in RPG elements.
At this rate, I’d guess the title probably won’t make its initial intended release of Halloween 2011.
