Default Grimshade - Review @ Indie Ranger

Indie Ranger checked out the J-RPG Grimshade:

Grimshade is a Dark Fantasy So Close to Shining

Grimshade by developer Talerock is a classic 90's style RPG set in a dark fantasy world filled with monsters, mad science and the balance between light and dark. Visually, it's like playing an interactive graphic novel. Battles challenge the player to think tactically both in and out of combat. The music is awesome and does a fantastic job of creating a mood. However, despite many positives, there's a lot that needs improvement.


Overall, Grimshade is a good start for Talerock. The art is the strongest asset looking like it was lifted out of a graphic novel but it's lacking in quality in some respects. The music is awesome and the few bits of voice acting are really well done. It's just a shame there isn't more. Combat is unique and challenging but tries to do too much sometimes. The world is rich and full of stuff to do but laden with typo-ridden text that's too small to read. The story is too big for one episode to hold and the sudden end feels premature. Grimshade is a great premise with a lot of potential but its flaws are too big to ignore and stop it from really shining. The game could be greatly improved with a little work to the technical aspects and maybe a little less text.

Score: 68/100
