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!

Ok, great mod but a few things really bothered me.

The animation for the torch swinging attack needs to be improved. Maybe have him swing in multiple agles to add some diversity.

The sound he makes when he's hit by monsters is terrible.

You have to add a blocking mechanic to the game. A countering system is also needed. This is a melee game and needs these things. Moving in and out of a fight is boring. I should be able to stand my ground and deflect enemy attacks. I'm the Grim Reaper!

Thanks VGames. :)

I am going to (most likely) take out the torch in this way completely, it actually doesn't add anything in this way because you need to switch it with a weapon. I intend to make torches so that you can pick them up from the wall and use them for a short while in your other hand.

Sounds.. that's hard. Do you know of good sources I could find better player sounds? :)

Blocking, checked and agreed. That's on the feature list. :)

Great. I'm glad we're on the same page. The torch thing is a good idea like you want to make it. I'd rather use weapons then lighting but I definitely think using it to catch things on fire is a nice feature.

Not sure where to get good sounds like what I'm thinking of. I was thinking along the lines of a more airy sound to his voice. Low but not deep. Maybe the same voice as the Witch King from Lord of the Rings.

Good to hear about the blocking.

2 more things, add a sleeve or something to Grim's arm when he's holding the torch. His arm looks bare. And maybe you should include more then one swinging animation for the Scythe. Like give him 3 or 4 that are used randomly.

Actually this mod is 100% compatible with linux, outside of the Sikk Mod part. I am going to put some effort this week into finding someone that can compile the current Sikk Mod version under Linux and that's all I should need to create a 'linux' patch for the mod.

No promises (yet) but I'm sure this must be possible. Become a watcher of the mod and I'll let you in on any news I might have regarding the Linux front.

so it's basically modern Heretic. iD really should make another medieval fantasy action game. We have too many rpgs in that genre. Great mod here.

Try it and find out, and let me know what you think after you played it! :)

Actually I don't really think this mod takes a lot from Heretic (or Hexen). Having worked on a Hexen mod for years I can see the real differences between these games are in the platforming elements and the fact that Grimm has a far grimmer (excuse the pun) setting than both Heretic and Hexen.

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.
