GRIMM ODDS - Vehicles

... About GRIMM ODDS

  • Unreal 4 first person survival game evolving around Phillip Grimm, the chief engineer of mankind's first interstellar exploration mission. Crash-landed under mysterious circumstances on an alien planet, Phillip has to survive, piece together the events and find a way to get back home.

  • The project unfortunately was cancelled out of non-economic reasons by a private investor at a completion level of 75%, even though a major  publishing contract offer existed.

The Vehicles of GRIMM ODDS

For a  Robinson-in-space story you need spaceships and if you want to show convincing wreckage of those, you have to know how they were structured in the first place in functional condition. That is why ‘make it believable’ was one of the main goals for all the tech design in GRIMM ODDS.
