High Voltage Software, best known for The Conduit, is set to deliver its most ambitious game yet next year. Called The Grinder, the Wii-exclusive first-person shooter is like a Nintendo console version of Left 4 Dead. Gamers become special bounty hunters gunning for the undead, vampires, werewolves and more. Of course, The Grinder is the result of everything HVS learned with The Conduit and not only looks better, but features more on-screen characters than ever before. But best of all? In addition to a full set of deathmatch options, the title boasts a four-player cooperative online mode.
The developer showed off The Grinder at E3 2009 and IGN came away very impressed. In today's developer diary, HVS producer Josh VanVeld chats about some of the gameplay refinements the company has introduced to the experience in the short time since.
