Based on the award winning Doom3 engine, enhanced with fully customizable features such as Parallax Mapping, HDR, Bloom, SSAO and other high-end features coming from Sikkpin's SikkMod, Grimm looks and plays like a modern game. This mod will move to Doom3 GPL as soon as it is released.
Heaven and Hell are at war and have been closed off to new souls. Human souls now wander in purgatory after death, unable to go up to Heaven or descend down to Hell. The angel, Gabriel, has stolen The Grim Reaper's key of the Gatherer's Keep, the entrance to both Heaven and Hell. He is determined to fight his way through the souls in purgatory and the Demons and Angels in Heaven and in Hell to regain what is rightfully his and restore order.
You are the Grim Reaper.
And Lo those that stand in the way of the Grim Reaper and His Scythe.
For Ever Lasting Death will be their Fate.

IMPORTANT: THIS IS AN ALPHA VERSION IT MAY CONTAIN BUGS.
FOR ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW.
Issue: This mod is running very slow or lags in certain areas, but I can play Doom3 just fine on Ultra!
Fix: Grimm most likely requires more computing power than 'Vanilla' Doom 3. You have several options to fix this issue. The first is turn down the quality, by choosing low or medium quality. Don't worry the quality actually doesn't drop very much when you do, textures will lose some of their crispness though. If the game still runs slow, turn off visual enhancements like SSAO, DOF, HDR, Bloom, Vignetting, Aliasing etc..
Issue: I've turned the settings to 'low' but now I have a garbled screen whenever I move the mouse!
Fix: Turn of all visual enhancements, like Dof, Motion Blur, SSAO, HDR, Bloom, Vignetting, Aliasing etc..
Issue: When I start a new game, I just see blur, nothing else.
Fix: If you have an Ati card, turn off Ati Catalyst AI.
Issue: I keep dying!
Fix: Make sure to play the tutorials and read the Strategy and Survival Guides!
Issue: Particles sometimes turn into black squares.
Fix: Save your game, restart Doom 3 and load your last saved game.
Issue: The game only runs on windows!
Fix: There currently is no version for either Linux or Mac available of Grimm, but I am planning to implement them in the future. If you can compile on either Linux or Mac, please register and www.doom3world.org and let me know! :)
Issue: The game is too hard!
Fix: Play it on an easier mode, there is absolutely no shame in that whatsoever.
Grimm is harder than other games, especially on Hard. I myself have not even tested Nightmare mode but I am sure it's possible. Can you play Grimm on nightmare mode? Make a movie on it and post it on youtube!
Issue: The game is too easy!
Fix: Play it on a harder difficulty mode, if you claim you can play it on nightmare... make a video of it and post it on youtube! :)
Question: What is Grimm's Challenge?
Answer: It is a battle arena where you can hone your skills with the Scythe, quite addictive as well.
