Oh my! Now that was a promo video.
Well, I'll tell you...Grimoire is a game that I probably want to play more than anything else. Clearly, it is either a "masterstroke of genius" or the greatest lie in the history of computer gaming, forged in the dreams of a madman.
I...just don't know. Not even Duke Nukem Forever can hold a flame to this piece of vaporware. Even if the funding is met, will the game truly ever be delivered or will the money just go to reinforcing Cleve's bomb shelter?
I can understand your hesitance Baslisk, but I have played the leaked [s]beta[/s] gamma
version and this game is real. It was actually the Codex that convinced Cleve to do a Kickstarter. However, there was an issue with setting up an account on Kickstarter, so Cleve went with IndieGoGo instead, for a FOUR MONTH campaign!
The thread on the Codex is still going strong if you want to check it out. (it's in GRPGD. There is another one in the News section. Us Codexians are obviously very excited, especially since Cleve was not only a regular but also because he specifically mentions the Dex in his video)
To everyone else, Grimoire is fully turnbased. It is more akin to Wizardry games, especially Wizardry 7, rather than the Eye of the Beholder/Lands of Lore games (for that check out the incredible Legend of Grimrock. There's a GoG sale for that going I think, which also includes the powerful and easy to use game editor for free. There are already 100+ mods out of varying quality)
Hopefully we get stretch goals which include tours of Cleve's bunker!
