    Grimoire is one of the best looking games on Itch.io this month, I was proud to finally get it up on the Indie paradise.

    Grimoire at Itch.io!!

    First 1000 purchases with Steam Account linked to their Itch.io account will get free Steam keys issued to them for their Steam library.

    UPDATE : Now supports PayPal transactions!

    Those lucky bastards, don't even realize the incline that they're about to get hit with.

    okay, was about to buy it a second time but can't, since I've got no credit card.

    Nice!

    BTW Cleve did you learn about itch.io only because I mentioned it in the GOG rejection thread?

    Itch.io was second on my list of venues to put Grimoire on after Steam. I am still having trouble believing GOG at #1 didn't publish the game, they were bugging me year round since 2012 when I first did the IndieGoGo campaign. I thought I could just phone it in and it would be up there.

    I love Itch.io for the game assets, I buy some artwork up there almost every day. I frequently go through the new stuff to see if there is anything fun. That's how I found that Lovecraft Adventure. You have to wade through a lot of slow starts but once in a while there are really good games up there.

  7. Will buy the DRM-free itch.io version as well as the Steam version when I'm ready to delve in properly to the massive incline. Thanks for releasing a DRM-free version Cleve. Nice to have both options.

    Thanks for putting up a non-Steam version, Cleve!

    Shame about gog. Just so you know, Grimoire now has more votes on the gog community wishlist than Opus Magnum, which was famously the game that caused so much uproar among the gog community when it was rejected that gog caved in and released it a few weeks later. I have little hope they will reconsider their stance on Grimoire, though. Just today, their moronic staff locked the corresponding forum thread. They seem determined to keep Grimoire off their platform.

    Oh well, there's an alternative now. Who needs gog, anyway?

    All through the modern world, people turn down money in order to promote their raging Bolshevist agenda. Hollywood makes movies that it knows are going to bomb at the box office after costing a 100 million dollars just for the sake of infiltrating their propaganda into the mainstream.

    The real scandal of Gamergate was the discovery that game journalists behind the scenes were like some nightmarish figures out of a John Birch society communist paranoid feverdream. None of them cares much about games at all. Then people began to say they met in private online to plan their secret Trotskyist agenda and they were all in on it. As they were scoffing and smirking, somebody discovered the Game Journos Pro list and sure enough, the fantastic stories of conspiracy were all true.

    Once GOG got profitable off games LIKE Grimoire, it can now afford to completely ignore public opinion and gamer demands and only put up games about gay dwarfs having penile implants, because progress. Once the money comes, they all flow in like locusts to profit and to pursue their incredibly strange and weird Comintern world plot. The creepy, slimy factor starts to flow into all their dealings. They have to work harder and harder to keep up the face of "groovy hip old skool aficionado just like you."

    I have decided that GOG is unfit to carry Grimoire, being a stronghold for LGBT mafia with pink hair and tattoos and multiple piercings. Shall incline be coupled with decline? Shall light be coupled with darkness? Shall the clean be coupled with the unclean?

    Grimoire is a niche RPG intended for connoisseurs of old style turn based roleplaying games, not a tool for world oppression by the NWO. GOG is shut off and does not have the option of publishing Grimoire in the future, even if they beg me. They can gnash their teeth in the outer darkness.

    I've never bought anything from itch.io before, so I'm a little unsure about something. If the game has updates in the future, would itch.io host the new updates too? How does that work exactly?

    I never bought a game on itch.io either. Although I've been thinking about trying out this one: https://oklabsoft.itch.io/lurking along with buying Grimoire. Anyway it's awesome to see Grimoire there since apparently GOG is too fucken stupid to carry it. Grimoire's rejection will likely come to mind every time I see some new fruity release on GOG that had no problem sliding through their ridiculous curation process.

    You get a notification when it is updated and you can download the new version from your library. Spent about a week setting up a pipeline that builds a new installer the second the game is compiled to Release instead of debug. Just uploads that to Steam with a single click and then Itch.io with a single click.

    Any problems experienced in installation or running the game let me know, I did a lot of testing of the installer but you never know.

    Should always be right-click, "Run as Administrator" to install.

    And so, after several decades of hearing about that most fabled of games, I finally have Grimoire installed on my machine.
    I must admit I never thought it would happen. But it's nice to be wrong about the right things.

    Good job Cleve putting it DRM free on itch.io, just bought a copy. The Steam key that comes along with it is a nice extra!

    Fuck those losers over at gog.

    More platforms hosting the game is always a great thing, especially for something like Grimoire where having a DRM-free copy is important for the target audience. Wish you all the best, Cleve.

    Thanks. It feels really good knowing it has truly escaped out into the world now. I like the idea of anybody who enjoyed Wizardry (6-7) discovering it and really having fun after the 27 year drought of no decent Wizardry and about a 20 year drought of decent blobbers. I wish I was surfing on Itch.io and just discovering Grimoire out of the blue right now, it would be awesome to play without knowing anything about it.
