A classic turn-based RPG with dark aesthetics and a retro vibe, set in a mind-bending dark fantasy world with elements of Lovecraftian horror. A lot of emphasis is put on atmosphere and immersion, using hand-drawn artwork, somber musical score, and lots of written lore. Reminiscent of tabletop DnD.

About This Game

Grim Quest tries to blend tabletop RPG adventure vibes, familiar dungeon crawling and roguelike mechanics, and a classic turn-based combat system into an accessible and entertaining package. Because of its attention to written storytelling, abundance of lore, and detailed worldbuilding, Grim Quest can be similar to a single player Dungeons and Dragons campaign, or even a choose your own adventure book.

"When the Dark closes in, your own mind is your worst enemy..."

Welcome to Ashborne, an ancient city poised on the brink of terror and madness, besieged from within, as well as without. Take control of one of the Ashborne's countless hired mercenaries, and shape the city's destiny alongside your own. Uncover the secrets of the mysterious Dark, as you explore the ravaged ruins of a fallen civilization, and, at the same time, plumb the hidden depths of your own mind and face your inner demons. What will you find amidst all that horror and desolation? Do you even know what it is that you're looking for?

"All too familiar human failings eat at the core of Ashborne from within, just as the hordes of unfathomable horrors, shaped by subconscious thoughts of its own inhabitants, besiege it from without."
