Grounded swims with the fishes in the Koi Pond update

Honey I Shrunk The Kids ’em up Grounded has taken a step into the deep end. The next update for Obsidian’s teeny tiny survival sandbox opens up the Koi Pond, letting you dive into murky puddles while evading dangerous goldfish and submerged spiders. The pool will open for everyone next month – but if you’re feeling antsy, you can dive in right now via the public test server. (more…)
