The past six months haven't been so good for Codexian ubermensch Cleveland Mark Blakemore, author of vaporware dungeon crawling masterpiece Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar. After the conclusion of the game's second Indiegogo drive and the release of the last version of its public demo back in April, things suddenly became very quiet. There was no sign of a final release for the game, nor even of the promised backers-only "superdemo".
In May - the game's originally planned release date - the news surfaced that Cleve and his family had moved to another city, and scamming accusations began to fly. As the year continued and promising RPG after promising RPG was postponed to 2014, Cleve's fans and backers grew ever more restless. The broadcasting of a series of Grimoire LP videos by Cleve's Australian-accented son, Cooper Blakemore, did little to quell the growing outrage.
But all that ended this morning when the following announcement appeared on the game's IndieGogo page:
Grimoire Super Demo Download Link
Please note that after installation, the super demo activates your onboard webcam and then attempts to match your likeness to the NSA archives at the Echelon facility here in Australia. Failing to find a match to our list of contributors will mean you will immediately be invoiced for a million dollars worth of Amway merchandise that will be dumped on your door, most of it worthless garbage you will never even be able to sell to your own relatives like oversize cans of Crisco and huge bags of yarn fragments. Crawling through waist deep piles of greasy yarn in your living room that become increasingly tangled over the years you will rue the day you downloaded the Grimoire Super Demo without being a contributor. You have been warned.
(Please note: the Codex staff can neither confirm nor deny that the demo is actually protected in the manner described. Melonheads beware.)
