Summary

The world is being overrun by monsters. They spread by converting humans into creatures like themselves, taking over villages, towns and cities. The infestation has gotten so bad that the military’s only option is to level many of the affected areas, regardless of collateral damage.

Large, prosperous districts hire professional “Monster Hunter” companies, staffed by the small percentage of humans who are immune to infection. These professionals use state of the art weapons and large teams to sweep through the area, wiping out all the monsters preventing many of the military strikes.

Smaller, poorer communities must rely on freelance Monster Hunters that are willing to do the work cheaper and are often driven to the task because of fame or simply the thrill of the hunt. Of course, they’re not as skilled, well equipped, or organized as the professionals, and quite often it turns out they can’t handle the job; resulting in the military destroying the town. Now, a group of four freelancers have been brought together to save all of humanity. They just don’t know it yet…

The Grinder is a fast-paced action First Person Shooter (FPS) set in America's Southwest. The game is built around a cooperative play experience.

I want Capcom or EA to publish this game. With this game running on their servers, this could be a lot better effort than The Conduit. Either of these companies will remove friend codes, and make a better online experience equivalent to XBL or PSN. This game is going for that social part of online gaming and with these publishers, it could be possible.
