Obsidian Entertainment’s Grounded Game to be Adapted into Animated Series

GROUNDED, the whimsical survival game from Obsidian Entertainment and Xbox, which has become an early access success story with over 10 million players is being adapted for an animated series in association with Waterproof Studios/SC Productions, Kinetic Media and Bardel Entertainment.

The series will exist in the same universe as the game. The summer before high school, four friends plan “big things” to elevate their social standing, but their plans are upended when they stumble upon shrinking technology that makes them two inches tall. Now the four shrunken friends must learn to survive in a towering backyard that’s a jungle full of enormous predators and hiding a vast corporate conspiracy threatening their entire town.

Brent Friedman is attached to craft the story, with Brien Goodrich attached to direct. The show will be introduced at Kidscreen (July) and MIPCOM (October) as well as private meetings in the US during the fall and winter 2022. The development team will be hosting an in-person booth in the interactive zone at San Diego Comic Con in July for those who want to get hands-on experience with the inspiration of the show, and meet its first boss creature, the brood mother, in person.

Here is what some of the people involved in the game and animated series had to say about the project.

“Grounded has caught the imagination of millions of people and we’ve learned that the biggest fans want even more of that world. This partnership will allow us to give fans more Grounded while expanding the world that so many have come to love.” – Adam Brennecke, Game Director

“The team at Obsidian have created an incredible world that has already grabbed the attention of the gaming community. We are excited to work with our incredible partners to bring the story to life in an animated series!” – Carl Whiteside, SC Productions
