    Pepper Grinder revs up for release on March 28


    February 21th 2024Pepper Grinder is a high-speed platformer with wonderfully satisfying drill-based movement, lush pixel art, oddball enemies, and challenging platforming—and you can finally experience it for yourself when the game launches on PC and Nintendo Switch on March 28. You can also download the Switch demo on the Nintendo eShop right now, or try a demo of the PC version on Steam!


    Developed by solo swashbuckler Ahr Ech and published by Devolver Digital, Pepper Grinder’s blisteringly fast-paced piratical platforming stars a treasure hunter named Pepper who uses her drill, Grinder, to swim through the earth like a dolphin swims through water.

    After a freak storm tears Pepper’s ship apart, she washes up on the dangerous shores of a mysterious island and finds a group of narwhal-like creatures—a band of bilge-sucking buccaneers known as the Narlings—making off with her precious treasure.

    But a chance encounter with the aforementioned Grinder gives her the power to fight these thieves head-on. Pepper embarks on a quest to retrieve her stolen booty, drilling her way across the island to recover her filthy lucre and show the Narlings—and their mysterious leader—why you should never mess with someone wielding an oversized power tool.

    Pepper Grinder is an electrifying blend of tight platforming, chaotic action, brain-twisting environmental puzzles, and unique drill-based traversal, and you can take Grinder for a spin on March 28 when the game whirrs onto PC and Nintendo Switch.
