A few years ago at Grendel Games we started developing Underground for surgical doctors-in-training using Nintendo Wii technology. A project that started out as an innovative and entertaining training tool, turned out to be the most amazing and fun game we’ve created thus far. We would like to share this experience both within and outside of the medical world. We are excited to let you know that Underground is coming to the Wii U eShop on Thursday January 8th in Europe for €19,99/£15,99. A North American release is planned as well.
It would be fantastic if you can share this news with your community, whether it is an article on your website, a share on Facebook or just a little tweet, everything is appreciated!
Step into the world of Underground, a challenging and seriously fun puzzle game with a heartwarming story about a little girl trying to save her robot friend. Travel through a unique underground while puzzling and building your way up to the surface using your imagination and two robotic arms! Each part of the underground cavern features its own threats and opportunities for you as a player to explore.

•Unique and challenging gameplay mechanism using 2 robotic arms
•Freedom to explore and build your own way out of the mine
•Four unique worlds to travel through, including boss fights
•Additional difficulty level (for players who love a challenge)
•Incredible soundtrack performed by a full orchestra

The game finds its origin in the medical world where Underground is currently being used to help surgeons train their laparoscopic surgery motor skills. What’s truly unique about this game is that it’s designed to be an entertainment product as well as an innovative training tool. Underground manages this by offering a fun experience to all of its players through a series of exciting challenges and a mesmerizing storyline.
The medical version of the game comes with a set of controllers designed to mimic the laparoscopic equipment and surgery motion to a very high degree of accuracy. However being an entertainment game at heart, Underground invites specialists to play the game by offering an immersive experience in a fantasy world.
