    I voted no simply because I have nowhere near enough time to play a 600-hour game at this point in my life. Or rather, am not willing to start a game I have little hope of ever finishing.

    BUT if I was a young whippersnapper (:geezer:) with more time on my hands than ideas what to do with, I'd totally go for it. Just so that I could say I played a game that takes a year to finish. I've been following Grimoire's development (or lack thereof) for years and I honestly didn't think that Cleve would ever finish it.

    I'm simultaneously too old and too young to play this game. While 600+ hours of nostalgic interface and gameplay could fill my limited gaming time until I'm about 60, I honestly never got into this long-beloved style of crpg. Maybe 20 years ago I could have played this...

    Only know it on Steam - you can bet GOG will get it though ;)

    this goes back to the good old days of Wizardry etc ::D checking to see how he is progressing with his bug-fixes - seems playable but a bit cumbersome - that may improve vastly when he gets his notes out

    I expect so, eventually... not sure why it's not from the start. Probably Steam takes a lesser cut or something.

    The reference to Wizardry ... does that mean that the back row casters (i.e. spellcasters) will not be subject to physical attacks?

    was refering to the way the page looks with a small top central world box and the character icons and their info lined up vertically on either side - also check the graphic style

    Clevemans said that he will put up the game on GOG when he is sure that is bug-free or mostly so. Basically, Steam release is a beta test. Also, if you want the morbid curiosity sated, just look at the Codex, tbh

    Yes, except by damaging spells, obviously.

    Been playing this. Good game all around, if you're into blobbers. Haven't played too much, but the beginning seems pretty difficult (I've already almost had a full party wipe, and I haven't even finished the starter dungeon).

    Me's droolin already - party wipe in starter? Reminds me of Daggerfall!

    60? Bit hard to remember after the first thousand years but this horrible old baldy beardy geezer not worrited about that - after all if the cancer gets me why would I worry that I didn't finish a game? Would already be dead ^^ But have to buy a new gaming laptop first that can cope with Steam = easier said than found

    I don't use a gaming laptop, I just use the hp silver fusion and games run fine.
