    In a shocking and unexpected update to <a href="http://www.grimoiresystems.com/">the Grimoire homepage</a> we are now informed that indie game and over-long in development - much like Duke Nukem Forever and possibly also like Duke Nukem Forever being a game which doesn't exist in any real tangible state - Grimoire, whose appearance was only a few days ago promised as "Coming July 2009", has now been knocked back until "Fall 2009".
    <br>
    <br>
    When asked for comment on this turn of events, Cleveland Mark Blakemore <a href="http://www.rpgcodex.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=29134">had this to say</a>:

    We will bring you more news as it happens on this highly anticipated title.

    Which is more than can be said for certain other games.

    It most assuredly does exist. There's at least one beta floating around the web.

    I think Cleve himself is pretty tired of Grimoir by now and wants more than anyone to release it.

    Come on cleve, the finish line must be in sight by now. Just put your all into it and finish the game!

    Very enjoyable dungeon crawling. I'd pay the lunatic 10$ for the game, too bad it will never see the light of day.

    I thought you were kidding. Those are the actual requirements. How long ago was this game first announced, for real?

    I think I still have my Voodoo 1 board somewhere. Maybe there will be a 3D accelerated version coming!

    30 megs was a standard install size for a large game back in those days, but the rest of the requirements are years behind 1997.

    Those specs bring a nostalgic tear to my eye.
