While titles like Halo Infinite, Forza Motorsport, and Fable capitalizes the most amount of excitement from 2020’s Xbox Game Showcase last July, there also were a selection of exciting properties that were featured viewers believed to be anticipating for the Xbox platform. One namely announcement came to be The Gunk from Image & Form Games.

One experience that shows to be a true contender for the Xbox platform as it plans to ships Xbox Series X|S later on that year, The Gunk brings an action-adventure experience to a foreign planet as you clean up “the gunk” that’s littered across the plane. But, while excitement grew for the announcement, a release date was left blank for The Gunk at the time of its unveiling unfortunately.

However, in a new trailer roughly a year following its announcement, Image & Form Games/Thunderful share that The Gunk is to ship sometime in December later this year. You can watch the new gameplay trailer in the video below:

“You play as Rani, one part of a space hauling duo who are mining the galaxy for whatever resources they can sell to make ends meet,” Ulf Hartelius The Gunk Game Director gives for the game’s overview. “When she and her partner Becks land on a seemingly barren planet, they find the gunk, a previously undiscovered substance that could mean a big payout!

“The only problem is that the gunk is somehow harming this natural habitat, which brings about a dilemma – should Rani and Becks be interfering with something they don’t fully understand? Will this dangerous discovery cause a rift between two friends?” Hartelius continues with the team’s ambitions for this new experiment with 3D, explaining: “Once partnered with Microsoft to develop for the Xbox platform, we decided to go in a very different creative direction from the SteamWorld series.

“The Gunk is our first 3D project, so we wanted to use that literal extra dimension to craft a more cinematic and immersive experience than anything we’ve done before. What we’ve created is a story-driven sci-fi exploration game that really focuses on character development.” Are you excited for The Gunks’ release later this holiday?

The Gunk is to ship sometime in December 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
