GRIN was a Stockholm, Sweden-based video game developer founded in 1997 by brothers Ulf and Bo Andersson. Though the company got its start developing games primarily for PC such as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, they also branched into the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles with titles such as Bionic Commando Rearmed and Terminator Salvation.
In 2008, GRIN began work on what would have been a Final Fantasy action game spin-off known by the codename "Fortress", which, based on initial artwork, would have likely had some connection to Final Fantasy XII. However, in 2009, GRIN began facing financial troubles when Square Enix recalled the project. This, coupled with delayed payments from multiple publishers, lead to the company declaring bankruptcy in August of that year, with the status of Fortress left largely unknown. Ulf and Bo would later go on to establish OVERKILL Software in 2009 with their first game, PAYDAY: The Heist releasing in 2011.
