Thunderful has revealed a new trailer for their story-driven sci-fi exploration title, The Gunk. Throughout this trailer, the voice of the protagonist Rani, Fiona Nova, introduces prospective players to the game’s cast and world.
The Gunk heavily prioritizes exploration within its alien worlds from a diverse array of biomes such as canyons, jungles, and caves. Rani and her partner discover a curious substance they dub ‘the gunk,’ turning the regions barren. However, purifying the biomes of this plight will cause the wondrous ecosystems to reemerge in all their splendor.
Game director Ulf Hartelius provided the following comment regarding this upcoming release:
“As a team, it’s been a real pleasure to branch out and supplement the charm we’re known for with the SteamWorld series with a more ‘grown-up’ story like the one we are telling with The Gunk. We’ve been working hard to blend that intriguing sci-fi tale with the cool raymarching tech we’re using to create our mesmerizing gunk and a rich world for players to explore. We can’t wait for them to finally get to experience it all on December 16th”.
