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.

This looks cool. When you are busy with your own mod you forget about little gems like this. Keep it up man, I hope so see this as a released game. Great work!

PAINKILLER RIPPED OFF!

There is only one thing in common with Painkiller, that is the fact that there can be hordes of enemies here and there. But that is where the comparison stops.

This is a platform game, not a run and gun first person shooter. If you would approach this game like you would play Painkiller you wouldn't last the first level. :)

Thanks anyway.

ps: The correct term would be: 'Painkiller Rip-off', now you wrote it like Painkiller ripped off from Grimm, which is impossible as Grimm was released after Painkiller.
pps: Your caps lock button is stuck, you might want to get that looked at! :)

I think he's referring to the melee weapons in Painkiller which are pretty unusual and perhaps the sickle resembles their attack to some degree. I imagine there have been high-powered melee weapons in other franchises before Painkiller though ;)

Keep up the good work!

A+, awesome mod :). Just played through the demo/alpha. I got one nitpick, the scythe is a great weapon and it's fun to play around with it, but it's hard to hit enemies as they get close to you very quickly and hit you almost instantly. A simple sollution would maybe be to increase the range just a little bit? Other than that - you've got a pretty cool thing there, can't wait to play the final release (or any demos in between :P).

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.
