    For over eight years, GOG have wanted to add Pierre Begue's Knights of the Chalice to their platform. Its original community wishlist entry was actually created by a GOG employee, the former Codexer JudasIscariot. The amusing story of Pierre's initial refusal to cooperate with them is a tale we've related here in the past. For some time, it was unclear whether GOG were even still interested in the game as their admission standards shifted over the years, but today it was finally released there. Here's their brief release announcement:

    Set off on a perilous journey with a 2D retro-style RPG! Knights of the Chalice is now available on GOG.COM with a 20% discount lasting until 8th December 2020, 2 PM UTC. Create a party of four adventurers, explore the Crimson Coast of Mindrel and fight valiantly against the evil Council of the Slaver Lords, domineering Giants, fiendish Demons, and scheming Dragons.

    Can’t wait to begin your quest? Check out the Knights of the Chalice Demo for free! Also, be on the lookout for Knights of the Chalice 2 that is coming soon to GOG.COM with even more fantastic adventures to take on.
    Knights of the Chalice is available on GOG for $20 with a 20% launch discount until next week. As mentioned in the announcement, the game's demo is also available and there's a GOG page for Knights of the Chalice 2 as well, release date unknown. I suppose that will be its true launch.

    The isometric perspective of this game is a clear indicator of Pierre's state of mind.

    Indie devs during the covid-19 crisis can't be choosers, I imagine.

    That's the price I paid when it came out. But 11 years later ? No.

    I don't know what to tell you. That's not the way ultra-niche markets work.

    You are right that about niche in general, but :
    - there's a lot more quality nowadays (think about the incredible work on Underrail for instance)
    - Pierre could have easily evolved the game a little, adding higher res for instance, which could impact the GUI, etc. (instead of doing other weird shit)
    I remember arguing with him that higher res are just a different viewport on the scenes he already has, nothing to change in the graphics or anything, just a code thing. I argued that it even increased the tactics aspects. (He did add a few higher res, but very limited).

    This might take a while. I don't think their admission standards have shifted THAT much.

    Because it shifted back, they refused Grimoire at first and many games that scream "Good old game".
    But they saw the light, finally.

    By the way, i noticed this a while ago on the Steam KotC page :

    RPG Watch Third Place Best RPG of 2009


    I've always wanted to ask :

    What the fuck was the Codex shilling in 2009?
    Fallout 3? DAO?
    Or was there no GotY back then?
