Grounded will get a demo on Steam as part of the Steam Game Festival

Obsidian's tiny backyard survival game Grounded hits Steam Early Access on July 29, and ahead of that launch, a free demo will go live on June 9 as part of the Steam Game Festival.

The demo will only feature the single player component of the game, so don't expect to buddy up with pals. The demo is available between June 9 and 14, and Obsidian's announcement says it will provide "a day as a shrunken teenager"—so it sounds fairly brief.

You'll just need a Steam account to download the demo, which is also available as part of the Xbox Insiders program.

Grounded looks really cool: it's basically Honey I Shrunk the Kids as a survival RPG. To see what it's all about, here's a nice chunky gameplay video, and here's the Steam page.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that you needed to wishlist Grounded on Steam to get the demo, but that isn't required. You'll just need a Steam account.
