Screenshot of the Dark Warrior ComplexSo what is Grimm Quest for the Gatherer's Key?
Grimm Quest for the Gatherer's Key is a Hack and Slash Fantasy game with some platforming elements that leans heavily on extremely bloody and satisfying gameplay. 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.

Grimm rewards skill and exploration. It offers interesting tactical options and reacts to the way that players navigate the world. Smart thinking, tactical skills, exploration and combat skills are just some areas where Grimm rewards players with power ups, bonuses or just a simple compliment for a job well done when it's needed.

Grimm has a beautiful soundtrack created by the extremely talented Justin Lassen. His instrumental series, Synaesthesia, has been highly praised by everyone from CGSociety to EQ and Playboy Magazines. Likewise, his dark, symphonic masterpiece, And Now We See But Through A Glass Darkly, has seen over 100 million downloads since its release in 2003. I am extremely proud to have him work his magic for Grimm! If you are unfamiliar with Justin's work (shame on you by the way) then go check it out here: Justinlassen.com

Available on all platforms (WIN/LX/MAC etc..) that can run Doom 3 mods.
WILL BE AVAILABLE AS FULL LENGTH STANDALONE TITLE IN THE NEAR FUTURE

Doom 3 Automatic Map Builder is a tool that helps you create playable map layouts within a matter of minutes, so you can get right into the nitty gritty of real mapping, detailing, entity placement, etc... and skip the tedious work of manually blocking out maps within bulky Doom3Edit.

With D3AMB you can sketch out multiple floors of your map in a grid like environment. You can automatically place lights, entities such as monsters or models, have D3AMB place columns for you and even doors and visportals are automatically created if you want.

Using D3AMB you can create intricate block outs for your maps as starting point, you don't have to be afraid of ending up with an unstructured workflow as your maplayout will be consistent throughout the map.

You can use D3AMB to experiment with a diverse set of abstract maps as well. It can deliver fully playable maps by featuring entity placement. So you can create a map from scratch that's playable from beginning to end.

This is an Alpha version. This means that NOT ALL features might work, might work as predicted, or might cause error messages. If you do receive an error message then press 'continue', save your work under a different name as quickly as possible and restart D3AMB.

great to hear that this one will go stand alone as soon as humanly (lol)possible. I have Doom3 laying around for many years, (have played the game at least 3 times and it is at the top of my all time favorite list. Main problem i am having with older games is that they don't run on my new 64 bits pc, haven't tried Doom3 yet to be honest. But other games from the same time can't run on a 64 bits.

So, will your stand alone run on 64 or does it need 32 bits?
Because i have been tracking your project from the start and loved it right away!

Like Gordon said, it runs fine on x64 systems! In fact it was created on an x64 system.

Don't worry about Doom 3 and 64 bit. It works just fine on all my 64 bit PCs.

This look very awesome! But the "wrong game DLL API version" error message continues to appear after installing the update 1.3.1. Any idea?

This can only happen if you have installed the wrong version of Doom. There are multiple 1.3.1. version patches. Here is a direct download link: Dramthethief.com

While I respect your work and admire it, this: "No frustrating gameplay... EVER." is an overstatement :)

It is a mantra, not a rule. Frustration is personal. What can be fun and challenging for one, can be frustrating for the other. :)

Impressive demo, good use of old-school trap system, unique gameplay elements.
Sikkmod upgrades really give it a beautiful look to a dark and muddy environment.
Looking forward to the final release.
