Like so many things and games it is a mixture. Some of the areas and puzzles are inspired, especially in the first part of the game. Probably this review on codex has it about right:…

Sad - Cleve does have a ready facility for shooting himself in the foot. How to turn a supporter, with some constructive criticism, into an enemy in one easy step. Not hard to see why the game never…

A few notes for making characters:

You can't go far wrong if you follow the same principles that worked in Wiz 7. And I reckon most of the attributes (where they correspond) work much as they do…

Seems likely that after the initital effort he worked only intermittently on the project. For instance, there must have been another period of quite intense work around the time that the screen…

Ultima Underworld was one of my favourite games, back in the day. But, so far none of these retro revival games have really amounted to much. Lets hope that UA is more than just a pale shadow of…

Grimoire has an option to turn off all random encounters. And many people avail themselves of that. That wasn't an option in 80/90s games such as Wiz. Without random encounters, you can rest up where…

I think beserk may be intended to lock - at least for a while. A similar thing happens when you choose hide. In Wiz 7 hiding was also persistent, but not usually for more than a few turns. And it…

Also, it is becoming apparent that there are some blank spots in the game after the first act (according to FelipePepe who claims to have finished the game now), so Dart's suspicion on that appears…

Yeah, very good points. Another example is Guild Wars 1, which had a huge number of skills you could combine onto the 8 skill bar. And it was an ongoing nightmare for Arenanet to balance, years after…

Humans appear to have poor mana regeneration too. Looks like I didn't make the best choice in having a Drow Thaumaturge and a human cleric :). It does seem odd that Wolfin and barrower have much…

I'd heard that was happening. Sounds like fixing the NPCs would take more than a few lines of code and so may not happen imminently.

I seem to remember you liked Elminage Gothic sometime back, which is basically a clone of the early wiz games. So if that is the case I'd be very surprised if you didn't like Grimoire. It appears to…

That's good to know. Maybe won't need to dump so much stuff now.

Yeah - I had wondered about that too: Cashing in all his chips would be a very human thing to do. But I don't get the impression that Cleve's mind really works like that. For a start he appears to…

Unlikely. If he wanted to launch a stream of games and milk them for all they were worth that is what he would have done. But Grimoire is not that kind of game. Besides, it aint over until the fat…

No, I'm not. I've never claimed that Grimoire is a perfect game. But it's size and complexity are undeniable. Wizardry 6&7 would fit into a corner of the map and leave space for might & magic and Eye…

I think the pricing is spot on at this stage. And to answer Dart's question - I'd much rather have 4K users who bought my game at full price with their eyes wide open than twice as many casuals. In…

Truth is there are quite a few things out of whack, balance wise, right now - it isn't just bards. Still fun to play, but hopefully Cleve will have a detailed balancing run through sometime hopefully…
