Good to see that Cleve is apparently not sending steam codes to the people that backed his crowdfunding campaign, probably trying to get them to pay full price for a second copy.

    Game looks like pants. So slow and tedious to do the simplest things. Plays horribly and bugs everywhere. Not worth to pick up in a 1$ bundle, yet the developer, Cleve Blakemore(a racist, arrogant, insane bully)wants 40 dollars for something that looks and plays worse than RPG maker shovelware!

Also no backer key for me yet, although I'm sure playing the game at this point is a waste of time anyways.

Now that it's released just need to wait 2-3 years for the community patches to make it worth playing

Every single negative review is made from an account with 0 other reviews, its safe to assume that those are not honest opinions.

Yeah I was surprised to see the amount of lvl 0 accounts on the Grimoire review page.

(EDIT: Actually virtually all of those level 0s are private profiles, woops)

What an amazing game by Cleve. It really dwarfs any achievement I have made in my life, I was initially angry that this game was released but I realized that I was actually angry at myself and jealous of Cleve and his game.

Also I would like you to know I am preparing my body for that video I said I would make.

So with the length of Grimoire and regular Codex time frames, can we expect a review posted in 1-2 years?
10-20 years probably. In that timeframe I can probably get a degree in english language and creative writing and write a review myself!

One of those things are going to disqualify you from Codex review writing, my friend

This game was never supposed to come out. Grimoire delays were a part of Codex lore and canon. This isn't right, I don't know what to believe anymore.

Finally keys are getting out, but it wouldn't be Cleve if he didn't add his own twist

Your Steam key is included below. Please do not gift or exchange with another person unless you have specifically cleared it in advance with us.

So no throwing my key to the wolves. Too much hassle to clear it with Cleve

That era of delay is over.

This is the new era of enlightenment. Every Next Friday has turned into every Friday, wherein we receive a new patch eliminating crucial bugs and enabling exotic features.
This is the era of the Golden Baby.

So, I got my key a couple of hours ago. The game is a bit rough on the edges but it seems to work.

I just tried it for a small while since I don't have much free time now, but I'm already wondering if 8 character party was such a brilliant idea. It doesn't bring much in terms of strategical options and it sure feels like turns last for ever. Well, I'll see how it really feels after a couple of nights.
