    Tags: Golden Era Games; Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar

    It's been years since we last posted about Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar, Cleve Blakemore's mythical vaporware magnum opus. The last time was in 2014, during the GrimoireGate Saga which found Cleve embroiled in a trademark dispute with the developers of an impostor Grimoire. That saga ended up going pretty much nowhere. The impostor Grimoire was eventually released and quickly swank in Steam's shovelware swamp, never to be heard from again. Development on the real Grimoire went on, and on and on. Issues turned into fractions of issues turned into micro-issues turned into fractions of micro-issues. When it became clear that there was no end in sight, even Cleve's most loyal supporters began to abandon him. His thread was banished to the depths of Prosperland and he became an object of scorn and mockery.

    That was the state of affairs until recently. In the last few weeks, however, things have started to change. Rumors of an impending Grimoire release have once again been swirling. None of us believed, but then Cleve came out with this trailer. And then another one. And then, just like that, Grimoire showed up on Steam Greenlight today with an eye towards an "early 2017" release:


    Cleve says:

    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.
    So there you have it. This Greenlight campaign is now standing between us and the release of Grimoire. Whether or not you believe the game will ever actually come out, please vote so that Cleve doesn't have any more excuses to delay it. Tell all of your friends and your enemies to vote for it too. Because I don't see him shelling out $5000 if Valve shut down Greenlight before the game makes it through...

    Time for the Grimoire thread to come back home to General RPG. Pause the Bailey Jay clip for 5 mins and let's make it happen.

    Hi.

    Although it looks like a game I would not play I appreciate the hard work that clearly went into making this by one person I think so that is worth congrats in my book and I logged into my Steam account and helped everyone out by giving my vote of approval to support the community.

    Thanks,
    Sherry

    Yeah, there should be NOBODY voting thumbs down on this. Even if you hate Cleve and think there is no such thing as Grimoire, you HAVE to vote for it in order to put the ball back in his court.

    So, I'm guessing Cleve is banking on Gabe pushing everything still stuck in Greenlight hell onto Steam to clean the slate before rolling out his new and improved replacement rules, so that he can scam retards in Early Access? $100 well spend (certainly better than on his fungi infested bunker), shine on you crazy diamond.

    Probably a good idea to replace Drow race with "Dark Elf" to avoid WoTC inquisition hunting parties

    The newest game I last played was from 2010.
    I guess this might be the first game worth playing since Stalker: Call of Pripyat. (Have yet to play AoD)
    I will try to get it on GOG since I don't intend on using steam. So 2020. maybe?
