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

So you've most likely noticed that Doom3World went down, never to go back up again. If you have missed this community as much as I have than you'll be happy with this newsitem. The Happy Friar has worked to put together the Id Tech Forums, a replacement for Doom3World.

We have not heard much from BNA! Other than that eventually a DDOS attack took down the forums and filled the database with spam. In the end it seemed it couldn't be cleaned out or saved as this is now almost a year ago already. So without further ado, get the hell over to Id Tech Forum and create your account, we're still missing a lot of Doom3 modders!

I've gotten many questions about the Automatic Map Builder for Doom3. This is also still in development and will be released within the next month, here. So many of you have PM'ed, mailed and asked me for a release so I'm very happy that this is finally ready for release.

As for Grimm, last but not least. You haven't heard a while from me, for good reason. I have been working in the background on the tools to automatically generate more content for Grimm. Creating a full game with as much content as a triple A title is impossible for one man alone, so I'm automating many processes help me to streamline the development process. The automatic map builder is one of them. This doesn't mean that the creative process will be handed to a software routine. I still sketch and design all the maps, I just let the computer do all the tedious hard work, like placing brushes, lights and other repetitive tasks.

Check out the map builder in action here:

So that's it. A small update from my end!
Grimm is not dead! In fact.. the last version is ready for you to download and play!

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.
