The Grue is a quick to play creepy arcade game. You must try to escape from a dark and randomly generated dungeon by unlocking three key shrines scattered about the level, using only your compass and small torch to help find them.

Your hunter has a special tactic it uses to find you, a white trail left in its path which is sensitive to the slightest touch and which will alert The Grue to your exact location should you cross it.
