Grounded, a survival game from Obsidian and Xbox, is set to be the latest property to get its own animated series.

Grounded is a game heavily inspired by the likes of A Bug's Life and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Players find themselves shrunk down to the size of a bug and must find a way to survive in the now hostile backyard. Players must consume food and water, scavenge resources to craft tools and shelter, and fend off plenty of ferocious bugs.

According to a report from Deadline, the game is set to be adapted into its own animated TV series by Star Wars: Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman.

The series will reportedly be set in the same universe as the game and will follow four friends who stumble upon technology that shrinks them down to being just inches tall. Much like the game, the friends must learn to survive in the now jungle-like backyard, avoiding the monsterous bugs that now pose a huge threat.

Obsidian Entertainment and Xbox are adapting the game into a series in association with Waterproof Studios/SC Productions, Kinetic Media and Bardel Entertainment. Friedman will work on the story alongside Halo's Brien Goodrich, who is set to direct.
