About Secrets of Grindea

Secrets of Grindea is an old-school Action RPG with co-op support for up to 4 players. It’s a tribute to and sometimes a parody of the old SNES games so many of us grew up with and loved.

In the world of Grindea everything is determined by one thing – how big your collection of stuff is. Take on the role of a young hero or heroine taking their first steps to become a famed ‘Collector’, helping find the most rare and valuable loot in the kingdom.

Journey through fantastical lands and battle tons of different enemies and bosses in your quest for truth, friendship and, above all, finding the world’s rarest treasures!

  • Co-op support for up to four players! Enjoy the entire storyline with your friends or call someone in to help with the more difficult challenges.
