    Level designer? Is there game integration, or 'just' separate levels?

    Edited. Whoops should have read the article first. It'll probably work like NWN?

    "All those items"? Didn't stop Ultima 7 way back in 1992. And U7 is supposed to be a major inspiration for this game.

    Damnit I suspected some quick person would quote my original post.

    Times have changed. This is a 3D game with 3D objects with physics and shit.

    This is one of the games I anticipate most. It has a lot of potential for :incline:, I hope I won't be disappointed.

    Not very good then. I was hoping for morrowind like, where the main game can be expanded by separate plugins.

    Can you imagine the nerdgasm?

    But not for the better.

    Thank goodness there are projects like Grimoire that will bring back the glory of the classic, traditional cRPG.

    Assuming they are ever going to actually be released. Cleve's track record is legendary, after all and spouting a few Codex memes in his videos is his not a sufficient remedy.

    Just a general comment in response to the notion that modern games have to deal with 3D and physics, and that's supposed to be totally awesome or some progressive twaddle like that.

    Whether or not Grimoire gets released remains to be seen. The pitch videos and gameplay videos alone have demonstrated that their design direction is superior.

    Not even 2D can save you. When you compare the graphics from some flash based modern adventure game with the gorgeous backgrounds in say QfG4 the winner is immediately obvious. Fuck Flash. (aaaah!)

    This game has so much potential. I'm just bummed there are no classes. Skill based char gen is usually shit.

    Also, I dearly hope there are party members...

    early interviews from when the game was announced said it's the 2 main characters + 2 slots for mercenaries + 4 slots for AI-controlled monsters.
