    If for some inexplicable reason you still haven't grabbed Cleveland Mark Blakemore's masterpiece Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar from one of the many retail outlets that it can be purchased from, you will be delighted to know that it has just entered the GOG catalogue.

    Check out the snazzy new trailer!


    Gaze upon the extensive list of features! (which for some reason fails to mention the secret buttons in secret places that do secret stuff)

    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!

    600 hours of play possible in a single game
    Lush Colorful 2D Hand Drawn Artwork
    Retro style MIDI music and 8 bit sound effects
    244+ Maps in the game to explore!
    Turn-Based strategic combat
    Multiple Beginnings, Multiple Endings
    144 context sensitive magic spells
    14 races, 15 professions, 50 skills
    64 intelligent NPCs with 8000+ Words in Vocabulary
    Full Sentence Communication with NPCs
    240+ monsters each with special powers and defenses
    1000+ items, Carry Containers, Global Party Inventory
    30 conditions, from Confusion to Disease & Lycanthropy
    Automapping, Autowalking, Autohealing
    Global Map Atlas With Position Marker
    Quest Journal, Hint Prompting, Help Facility, Mini-Quests
    Complex LockPicking Interfaces for Doors & Chests
    Challenging Puzzles and Rich Interactive Dungeons
    Browsable Character Library for up to 100 characters
    Multiple Crafting Workshops for all items
    Up to 12 Commented Postage Stamped Savegames
    Multi-themed GUI and customizable screen layouts​

    And finally grab it here for the bargain price of 6.99 United States Dollars (or 9.32 once it goes off sale if you're a slowpoke).

    I notice cleve's conspiracy thread about the rejection has been deleted. When did that happen? I'm wondering if it was a condition to get it released. After some of the stuff he said I'm frankly surprised GOG was willing to do any business with him, so it's pretty forgiving of them.

    Is it possible to change the font in the dialogue for something more readable? It is hurting my eyes.

    I've bought another copy (have one on Steam already after GOG told Cleve that it wouldn't be a good fit for GOG). Apply enough pressure and even the biggest ones will fold.

    That's not pressure, that's a probable commitment to pay them ten thousand dollars.

    *Pressure is a concerted effort to get 10,000+ people to stop paying them $200 to $350 per year until they agree to the demand.

    Is GOG aware of the developer's extremely problematic views and posting history on the alt-right forum known as rpgkKkodex?

    Hopefully they don't give a damn; (for the sake of all creatives who would devise, complete, and bring a product to market).

    (*Yes. I am aware if it; I was force fed it from here.)
