From Press Release:

TORONTO, FEBRUARY 25th, 2022 – Step right up! Capybara Games is excited to announce and release today The Carnival of Creeps, the next inventive update for their acclaimed puzzler Grindstone on Apple Arcade, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store for free to all players. The update introduces the new titular Carnival of Creeps, a carnival-themed area in Grindstone with 15 levels and its own set of special mechanics, and the new Teleporter Arrow item.

A carnival more on the Creep-y side, players will take Jorj or Jorja through this deadly carnival and collect valuable tickets that can be exchanged for spins on a snazzy prize wheel containing resources and gear blueprints. To collect tickets, players must create chains slicing through wooden or metal targets sprawled across the levels in the carnival. The higher the chain, the more tickets you get. Wooden targets are destructible, but metal targets will pop back up into a new space when hit, killing whatever happens to be there! Learn their patterns and use them to kill enemies but be careful, they can kill you too! Then use those tickets to spin the wheel of prizes! Each spin costs 50 tickets or you can spend 450 tickets to hit the jackpot! The first jackpot contains the blueprint for the Teleporter Arrow and each following jackpot contains a huge amount of rare resources.

The Teleporter Arrow is the latest item arriving to Grindstone, one that will be sure to change up the strategies of seasoned players. The mystical Teleporter Arrow lets you fire at two different Creeps or items to make them swap places. Use it to set up new chains, avoid danger or get out of a jam!

The Carnival of Creeps can be accessed at the bottom of Grindstone Mountain for 100 Grindstones where players usually start.

This content update will be available today on Nintendo Switch, Epic Games Store, and Apple Arcade across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV.
