Niche Spotlight – Grotto


Today’s Niche Spotlight is Grotto, a mystical narrative driven soothsayer sim by Brainwash Gang and Digerati.

You play as the soothsayer of your tribe during uncertain and tumultuous times. See into the future or contact those who have passed on with a variety of divination techniques, such as bone reading and stargazing. Interact with the people of your tribe, and guide them with your prophecies, but beware of the consequences your advice can bring.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

Grotto is available on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam) for $12.99 USD.
