    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:

    The Super Demo is now accessible for pledged campaign contributors only at :

    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.
    Better late than never, Cleve, better late than never. Enjoy the new demo, Grimoire fans!

    (Please note: the Codex staff can neither confirm nor deny that the demo is actually protected in the manner described. Melonheads beware.)

    Intereting, this way the full version might be released before 2030.

    Anyone experiencing jammed left arrow icon from time to time in the "Select Action", where you can FIGHT,CAST, SEARCH etc.. ?

    Win XP SP3 The game works & feels fabulously otherwise, this will be a great commercial success!

    Chrome is telling me that "20131101230731-GrimoireSuperDemoV15.exe is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous". The reviews are already starting.

    Knowing Cleve, I wouldn't be surprised if the installer scanned your computer for a registered account to the Codex and then attempted to nuke your hard drive from orbit.

    Edit: fucketh me, that loading screen looks like it is from another age! The memories … And then there is Cleve's madness oozing out from every pixel! :D

    So, um what's the point of 5d6 stat generating? Lower maxium, lower average, lower chance of high scores...

    In that case i have no idea what it might be. We all know Aod will come out soon, Grimoire is out and there is nothing else on horizon i would care about.

    More dice equals a lower standard deviation. Also, 4d8 averages only .5 above 5d6.

    What does Central Limit Theorum have to do with this? And why would you want lower standard deviation? Do you want an average character?

    FACT: every score on the 4d8 has a higher probability than getting the same on a 5d6

    The only advantage might be if you're aiming to get just bad stats instead of really bad stats

    So wait, is the superdemo actually public, given that the download link is right there in the open? Has any non-backer tried it out?

    I believe this is what they call an "honor system".

    Those are two different 'facts'. To see if your first statement is actually true, you have to open 'Normal' tab.
