Players can explore a huge world that often offers several different routes that lead to accomplishment. Almost every part of it is customizable to taste, not only the graphical aspects but also it's gameplay aspects.

A small look into wall walking, wall sliding and the fifth map in Grimm.

Grimm Quest for the Gatherer's Key: WallslidingI'd first worked a lot on the wallsliding thing, where players can reach areas by sliding across walls. But people asked me, why not go all the way and have Grimm walk on walls?

I was asking myself the same question and coming up with reasons not to do it... just because.. I felt I needed to find those reasons. Which wasn't reason enough..at all..

So I decided to work on it and have been very pleased with the results so far. It's still a work in progress and there's some more tweaking to be done in terms of how far I'm willing to let the player control things. The more control I give, the more difficult wall walking becomes and the more frustrating. Since frustration is my #1 enemy in terms of gameplay I need to compromise a bit.

Grimm Quest for the Gatherer's Key: WallslidingI'm going to keep both wall sliding and wall walking in the game.
I will also extrapolate the techniques into a feature where players can slide down certain walls, e.g. a flag, piece of cloth or a pilar.

Most likely there will be areas where players will wall walk first then alternate between rings to go up, wall walk again, jump & dash, then wall walk etc..etc.. to get that platforming rhythm going.

All in all it's worked out splendid so far, so take a look at the video section for a new video.
Or check out these two youtube videos on wallsliding and the development showcase for wall walking.
