About the Game

Grimind is a 2D, physics based, adventure, platform game in horror/creepy theme. Grimind casts you into forgotten caves and ancient crypts, without memories. While being there you have to demonstrate great manual skills to pass obstacles and solve non trivial puzzles to get out of scary environment and additionally discover what are you doing there alone – but is it certain... that you are there... alone?

Features:


  • Dynamic gameplay combined with a frightening experience
  • Physics based gameplay - It gives you the possibility to do whatever you want. Every single dynamic object can be dragged, carried or thrown which gives you enormous freedom.
  • Narration - While playing, the character is talking, telling the player what he feels, if he's scared, or what he thinks about the current situation.
  • Challenge! - Grimind isn't an easy game, so you can forget about holding just one key and passing through the levels. Besides dexterity and input skills, there is also a large number of logic puzzles to solve. Your brain will be tested and you'll not get bored.

If you're a fan of smart puzzles and love games with a grim atmosphere - this is a game for you. You will die countless times trying to figure out physics, visual and sound puzzles in this dark and disturbing world. There is a platforming element in this game, but it doesn't get too much in the way - you just need some timing, but it's your brain which will do most of the work anyway. The game is unforgiving and doesn't hold your hand when you play it, exactly like the good old games.

Get it and play it!

This game is amazing. That's as eloquent as I can say it in one sentence.

The theme is fantastic, the horror builds as the game continues, the atmosphere is perfect, the controls are smooth and intuitive, and I have enjoyed being able to play this game in the time that I have gotten the pleasure to. I played the version that was available on the website before I played this version, and the updates make the game so much smoother and more exciting to play, while still maintaining the challenging intellectual aspect that is required to solve the puzzles.

If I had to go with a number score, Grimind definitely gets a 9/10

With 185 deaths to my record on one single game, I must tell you something right away : Death is inevitable. You will die. A lot.

But nonetheless, this is a really good game for some reasons : The story is simple. There is little dialogue and when there is some, it is always useful to the story. The soundtrack makes you feel like you are in an outworldly place, deep into the rock. The contrasts of light and shadow is well done, making you feel sometimes that creepy feeling that you are being watched. Some puzzles will make you sit for a while and think what is the next step to do, so don't be afraid to take your time.

An overall good game that I warmly recommend.

Wonderful dark and brooding atmosphere and outstanding design. Immersive gameplay was pure fun, even during extremely difficult parts. Game is beautiful to look at and some parts of the ideas were just mind blowing! Amazing game :)

I say yes, but only to a point.

You play as an amnesiac dinosaur like creature who is terrified and alone in a temple or city in a state of decrepitude.

A simple platformer that never asks for very much in the way of challenging jumps, always lead you on where to go with how the stage is laid out to lean into or highlights with colour, and whose puzzles are never quite as complex as you might originally think they are. It falters a bit in the fact one should always have the "grab/hug" button pressed down so that when running or jumping you will get where you need to go more often than not, even if you fail to see what you are grabbing onto.

To try and stand out gameplay wise it uses a physics engine. This comes into play as you swing across vines, rocks crumble, water flows, creatures bounce off each other, and you the player picks up and throws balls. While okay, it's competent only and perhaps frustrating in the first few tries to figure it out at different points (a ball that explodes needs to be grabbed carefully). Never does much or asks for much.

Yet, it is still a game I took quite a bit from and enjoyed my team with up to a specific point.

The atmosphere and theme of the game is that of horror. The fear of being alone, of not really understanding what is out there in the darkness, and being dropped down into locations with rarely a reason why or what to do until you get close to the end. For this the creators of the game ask you to play in a dark room and with a good set of headphones and I dare say it accomplishes this task of making the game stand out far more than it would if played brightly and in silence.
To bring this into game play often you can be in the dark, shivering or moaning in fear, where that ball of light is precious for survival. Where if there is no light and you make a mad dash to freedom or follow a chance of survival, you look for the smallest of colours beyond the pitch black in near blind hope.

I however never completed this game despite my thoughts above. For while it does stand out and I recommend at least early on for those seeking good sound and atmosphere examples, I never felt satisfied with the platforming and a change in game play in the second half of the game resulted in great frustration where I had to move a floating ball between obstacles and the mouse controls were simply not helpful and just plain annoying in how simple it was to fail due to the layout, floaty physics used, and "one touch to anything is a restart of the puzzle". I completed it mind you, but I simply stopped caring at that point.
Later I saw it would often default to limited time of light available and follow the leader trial and error which without challenging platformer I've never cared for.

I did enjoy it's use of achievements. Rather than "complete this chapter" or " jump 10 times in a row" they used a set-up of secrets in the game with the Achievement picture being a small close up picture of where to go to find said secret. I went to locate them simply because I enjoy this type of challenge and a few were clever in their hidden paths.

Simple in most regards, worth trying out for what it attempts to do more than what it accomplishes, and perhaps you will not be as annoyed as I was in Chapter 8 to discover what this game is about and the amusing secrets it has for achievements which I found rather clever.
As part of a bundle, that is to get cheap or as a gift, it's worth trying out. If seeking out a platformer or horror game to really get into or at full price, I say nay.
