About The Gunk

In The Gunk, you take on the role of Rani, one half of a space-hauling duo that stumbles across a seemingly barren planet infested with a strange undiscovered substance they call “the gunk”. Rani and her partner Becks wonder if their days of scrapping for resources to make ends meet might be at an end with this usually discovery.

But there are other pertinent questions to answer: what exactly is the gunk? How did it get here? What kind of civilization that’s left only ruins behind?

The game has a big emphasis on exploration with a wondrous and diverse alien world to discover biomes ranging from rocky canyons to dense jungles, to deep subterranean caves and a few more surprises. The gunk is turning all of these zones barren, but as you remove it using Rani’s upgradeable goo-sucking power-glove, you’ll discover a flourishing ecosystem seemingly suppressed by this mysterious and destructive gunk.

The Gunk is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam).
