Grimoire Version 2 is actually out

As you may know, Cleve Blakemore has been promising a new and improved Grimoire V2 since almost the day of the game's release back in 2017. For the longest time it seemed like vaporware, but since August's wishlist drive things have been warming up. For the last three months, Cleve has published V2 development updates on Grimoire's Steam page at a regular pace. And it looks pretty great! There are going to be new areas, balance updates of course, and even minigames. Oh, and somewhere along the way the game's price was reduced to $20, even though it never did reach the requisite 50,000 wishlists. But even with all that activity, it was still quite a surprise when Cleve actually released the new version today. Here's his announcement post:

Version 2 of Grimoire is now live on the Steam Store with a 50% sale through to the New Year! The most incredible old fashioned computer roleplaying game just got a little more awesome!

CURRENT WISHLISTS # : 39,812 (combined)

Huge amounts of tweaks, fixes, adjustments and new content is found in this version, including the crafting workshop and all the item enhancements!

You can see all the items in your inventory, sort them on a variety of attributes like type and value, assay them, poison them, forge them, enchant them and merge them into new items! There is now a forge, alchemy bench, shrine and hearth in the game where different classes acquire various crafting arts they can apply to items to modify them or greatly improve them in combat!

The manual is being output to .PDF shortly and will be made available on the store from the main page freely so it can be examined by players who have not yet purchased the game to get a good feel for the mechanics. It is extremely extensive and explains all facets of gameplay with detailed explanations of all modes including combat, NPC interaction, character creation, level up, character review and the many mini interfaces like lockpicking and door forcing. It is suitable for printing and formatted for A4 output.

Beginning a new game from the classic game start will reveal new monster graphics and additional features have been added to the original maps. None of this should affect existing save games but players who have completed these areas may not see some of the new events. This will not affect the new regions at all which constitute brand new areas in the game.
How long has it been, 16 months of development? In Neanderthal years, that's almost nothing! It's another pleasant treat for Christmas. Grimoire is currently on sale with a 50% discount thanks to the Steam winter sale, so there's no excuse not to get it now.
