    I clicked the big thumbs up! Any way to tell how it's doing on Greenlight, or any idea of how long it stays there?

    The plan is to release it on Steam and let it percolate for a while. Tweak it in response to feedback and add improvements not present in it initially, like new graphics and gui widgets here and there.

    Once it has seasoned like a fine wine and brought much happiness, a new release on GOG with all new map areas, enhanced gameplay and features as the "El Maximo Food Of Champions" Grimoire.

    No matter what happens, only the IndieGoGo backers will get those particular limited editions sets physical media. No further printing of those materials will ever happen again once they are shipped out to backers.

    What if there are any left over? I was not an unbeliever - I just never heard about the original campaign.

    And if the game gets through greenlight then I assume the Grimoire thread will be freed from its prosperous prison? [​IMG]

    Infinitron a newspot isnt enough , any reports of other rpgs should be hidden from the frontpage. The fonts should be changed to be those used in grimoire video , the site layout should reflect grimoire interface too. Also videos of women tearing of their clothes, celebrating grimoire release are a must .

    But how do you make money by having a project Greenlit? You have an actual product to sell in order to make money on Steam...

    Of course it is possible that upon being Greenlit, Cleve opts to sell the superdemo as an Early Access title and then the full release update will be coming in 11 days. Fuck, that's probably his master plan. Those Neanderthals aren't half as dumb as they look.

    I assumed that was how greenlight worked. I don't really use steam.

    Why have a vote on a game that is already complete. Just sell it through the store yes?

    Since 2011, if you're an indie developer with no previous releases (and also no publisher with releases on Steam) then you currently have to go through the Greenlight process as I understand it. Well, either that or you have to blow Gabe Newell until he agrees to tell Valve to publish the game for you. However, in the near future they're going to replace Greenlight with a one-time release fee so Steam can actually profit off games that don't even sell.

    In order to avoid risking possible condemnation for bending one of my previous oaths on this subject, I have carefully skirted around GOG's excellent reputation for assembling special editions with media for sale off their site. Leaving the door open for the possible publication of other media but never those particular special editions that will go out to the IndieGoGo faithful. Entire nations will trade vast tracts of their soil in order to acquire the rare IndieGoGo editions for their national museums.

    Haha you are pathetic and so butthurt your ass must be as red as a baboons
    Whatever you might think of Mr Blakemore personally even a fucking idiot such as yourself can appreciate the sheer Incline of Grimoire but noo you have to be petty and silly
    Hell even former antagonist like commie and stabwound recognize that the Incline is coming and all their years of smartassery and jib only served as fuel for the neanderthal will to finish the game
    Grow up idiot or go back to Mass Effect

    Ok you filthy Zionist mods, Cleve did his part. ITZ time to put this thread back where it belongs in the upper echelon of General RPG.

    Much like Indiana Jones's escape from the Cave of the Holy Grail, the ghost of Prosper will stare after us as the entrance collapses and those unfortunates are left to wallow in their own misery.

    Grimoire is ready again for the grand stage as Cleve takes his victory lap around the Codex proper.

    He's a 56 year old that still signs his own name after posts and goes up and down the Ho Chi Minh Trail looking for new boyass to plow teach. Some people you just can't take seriously.

    ITZ not going to rain on Cleve's parade for sure. Don't worry about that stuff friend and join in the revelry of the new age.

    Cleve, do I get a chance to purchase a physical edition, since I can prove that I actually believed in you and was willing to bet actual US currency to prove my unshakable faith?

    + I purchased Daredevil Doughnut Lad and gave a positive review.

    Actually Cleveland Mark Blakemore, I'm willing to increase the odds. If you ship me a physical copy of the game, I'm willing to make a promotion deal with you. I own a company that can get you some positive coverage in Northern Europe. We can discuss the details privately if you're interested.

    Will the faithful truly be made to wait next to pleb and 'boon for the first glimpse of the Golden Babe? Why is there democracy in muh Incline!?

    :rage:
    I'm very eager to play. Congratulations, Cleve!

    One of the stages of grief. Trying to bribe your way out. Finally will come acceptance.

    (Alright I will contact you tomorrow)

    Leave it to Cleve to fuck up a funny thread by actually releasing the game. Oh well, the universe wins either way.

    Now, I must go and do my civic duty to vote and aid the game on its epic journey past the massive Gates of Greenlight.

    EDIT:
    Okay, it's done. I feel...weird.

    Is this...is this what it's like to be one of the converted? I'm confused. Are there meetings? Initiation pamphlets? Can someone help me figure this out?
