16 June, 2021 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce that a demo for upcoming narrative experience Grotto is participating in Steam Next Fest and a demo is available to download now from the game's store page: Launching Q3/Q4 2021 on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS, Grotto is a fantasy narrative game that casts players in the role of the Soothsayer – a mysterious hermit who resides in the titular cave and is called upon to read the stars and provide counsel to a primitive tribe.

The Grotto demo gives players an opportunity to experience the confined world and mystical existence of the Soothsayer. Connect stars to draw constellations and use them to influence the lives and fates of those who seek your guidance, such as the hunter, the liar, the merchant, the teacher, and more.  Created by the Madrid-based Brainwash Gang, Grotto is the latest outlandish project to emerge from the studio, which is also behind the recently released Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition, and The Longest Road on Earth.  Grotto trailer:
