Crate Entertainment Grim Dawn website
« on: 11 March 2018, 22:33:55 »
For those who may not know Crate Entertainment was started by one of the developers who worked on Titan Quest and Immortal Throne at Iron Lore.  His name is Arthur Bruno and he bought one of the projects that Iron Lore was working on when they went bust.  He continued to work on this on his own with a few other people helping out as and when he needed them.  Word slowly spread of this new project which was now entitled Grim Dawn, Arthur set up a forum and people started asking if they could make donations to help with funding the work.  This was eventually done and then in 2012 a Kickstarter project was started by Crate which proved very successful - they doubled their target figure.  This funding enabled the company to hire more people to work on the project. The game went into early access on Steam in 2013 and was fully released on 25th February 2016.  An expansion for the game was one of the Kickstarter goals and this expansion entitled Ashes of Malmouth was released on 11th October 2017.

Grim Dawn is Titan Quest's spiritual successor - it uses the TQ engine and has the dual mastery class combo.  But it's not a clone of TQ, oh no.  Much work has been done on the TQ engine and many additional features give Grim Dawn it's own uniqueness in the world of RPGs.  Crafting of items, factions both hostile and friendly, a devotion system to name a few add depth and complexity to the game.

If you'd like to know more about the game the forum link is here:

Cheers MedeaFleecestealer, the game deserves his own section. Thanks to you Grim Dawn discussions will no more trespass on other threads. ^^

As far as hack’n’slash goes I consider Grim Dawn very highly, it's a game in a league of his own. Like Ali was to Boxing or something. ;D

Thing is, Grim Dawn doesn’t show its depth at first glance. You have to play the game a fair bit to finally realize the real treasure you have in your hands. Gameplay mechanics and variations in Grim Dawn are stunning. So to sum up:

Edit: sorry.

Sorry, but I sincerely hope they don't. If you think that's funny you need your head examined.
