It has been a while since we last heard any news for Xbox’s console exclusive The Gunk — which, in a year full of bad news, only made people worry about a potential delay. But fear not: it seems the game is still releasing this year after all!
In a reply to Twitter user @blackheartJV, developer and publisher Thunderful Games confirmed that the game is still slated for this year. Not only that, but we should be getting more info really soon!
Developed by the same studio that brought to life the indie classic SteamWorld Dig, The Gunk was announced as a 2021 title during last year’s Xbox Games Showcase — and, like so many games out there, it is releasing straight into the Game Pass catalogue.
From the creators of SteamWorld, embark on an all-new adventure in a vast and alien world where you’ll encounter terrifying enemies and challenging puzzles on your quest to unravel the mystery of a forgotten planet, while saving it in the process.
