About Grindstone
Grindstone is a game of sword-slashing puzzle battles from the award-winning studio behind BELOW, Sword & Sworcery EP, Super Time Force Ultra, Critter Crunch, and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes! Grindstone first released on Apple Arcade in September 2019 to widespread acclaim, earning many awards and nominations. Grindstone has since come out on Nintendo Switch, where it has also garnered much acclaim and was one of the best reviewed Switch games of 2020.

Grindstone Mountain is overrun with vicious Creeps! Slay your way up its treacherous peak where fortune, glory (and death) awaits! 

It’ll take sharp puzzle skills and an even sharper blade to slice your way through the swarms of bloodthirsty Creeps dwelling within Grindstone’s dungeons. Battle bosses, loot resources, discover long-lost blueprints for powerful gear, all while eviscerating the innards from your deadly foes! Over 250 levels of intense puzzle-battling madness!

iam8bit & Capy are also working on a physical edition of Grindstone for Nintendo Switch, which comes with an exclusive set of custom creep-gut-colored crayons. Sam Webster’s original music for Grindstone is also being released as a double LP, featuring original artwork by Nuri Durr. Both are set to start shipping in 2021 and are available for pre-order.
