When I first heard about Grounded, it was hard not to think of custom-made rat maps for games like CS:GO, where instead of playing in a town you’re running around in a living room. In rat maps, players are very small, so coffee tables are the size of buildings and chess pieces can be used as cover. 

Rat maps can be a cute gimmick, but don’t really provide anything new except a different perspective. I kinda wondered if Obsidian’s survival game, where players are the size of ants and trapped in someone’s backyard, would wind up just being a survival game played on a rat map—cute for a while, but not really compelling.
