GOLDEN BABY RISING - Grimoire Released!

Game News - posted by Infinitron on Fri 4 August 2017, 14:12:54

Tags: Golden Era Games; Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar

Four months since it was greenlit for release on Steam. Five years since it was crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Twenty-three years since its development began after the cancellation of Stones of Arnhem. Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar, the game that was meant to be Cleveland Mark Blakemore's answer to Sir-Tech's failure to produce a sequel to the legendary Wizardry VII, has somehow survived through multiple eras of gaming and emerged intact from the other side. It's only fitting that the final release of such a mindbogglingly weird game has come to us as a complete surprise. Gentlemen, ITZ here:


After more than 20 years of development, the greatest roleplaying game of them all is finally ready for release! Grimoire is an homage to the classic dungeon blobbers and is inspired by Wizardry, Might & Magic, Lands of Lore, Anvil of Dawn, DungeonMaster and the Eye of the Beholder games!
