Patch v.1.0.9.

Hello everyone!
In this late-announced patch, we've set up correctly our difficulty levels, fixed some old issues and brought our usual lots of minor fixes and updates.

Major Fixes:

  • Difficulty levels are adjusted and corrected, bringing you Difficult, Normal and Easy modes. You may explore their descriptions while setting a new profile.
  • Moreover, we've added a checkbox named Iron Man. If you're going to complete the "A man can die but once" achievement, this setting will restart a battle anytime your hero is dead.

  • POI are set on their spots and highlighted in a specific moment.

  • Fixed a bug which turns out the battle music and sometimes triggers the playing a few melodies at one time.
Minor fixes:

  • Reworked the balance of encounters with Devoured. Now it works as it should.
  • Fixed minor issues in Tutorials related to Special skills.
  • Added some descriptions for characters Special skills.
  • Fixed the bug which shows you an incorrect description of Silver Enphimeriscusul quest.
  • Some minor dialogue and localisation issues for the Silver Enphimeriscusul quest.
  • Fixed the bug allowing you to buy some items from Marshes' NPCs for a lower price.
  • Moo'shoes near the Kurkan Pit may talk with you now.
  • Fixed the name of NPC Bluebella.
  • Lilipond's Cutscene about Charlie's youth should work correctly now.
  • You may trade with Gobbak after the Umbrages attack now.
  • Gathering pots of flowers isn't available now until you get the On the sacred paths quest.
  • Some players couldn't get the pie from Bartholomey in Gardener quest. Now it should work correctly.
  • Now you may talk with drunk Sillie during the Welcome to Lilipond quest.
  • Fixed the issue with Moo'Shoes during the Gobbak talk.
  • Fixed the bug which causes the POI blinking.
  • Added notification of unsuitable symbols used while saving the game.
  • More battle scene's optimisations.
  • Some visual changes in Spicy Wind tavern.
  • Multiplie localisation fixes.
  • Various minor sound tweaks.
  • New tips on loading screens.

By popular request from our players, we’ve changed the map of Brann in patch v.1.0.8. Now it is perfectly compliant with locations, so you can easily get the lay of the land. We hope that you will never be lost in the Lower Brann again with it!

By the way, what do you think about the Arthur Marshes map? Should we change it as well, or is it good as it is?

And the old map of Brann at your requests :)

If you face any issues, please, report it via Discussions or our Discord channel. We're eager to listen to your comments and work together with you on making Grimshade even better!

Thank you for your patience and for playing Grimshade.

Have a great day!

About This Game

Grimshade tells the story of the company of heroes, by a twist of fate involved in the cycle of events unfolding in the world of Ree'fah. Numerous dreadful monsters infested the forest around the city of Brann and high walls could no longer protect residents from the attacks. The menacing army of the neighbouring kingdom suddenly landed on the outskirts of the city, wreaking havoc. There is no hope for salvation — the strength of the defenders is running low, but the King and his loyal Champions had vanished.

Series of sudden events and odd coincidences force people to act. Get acquainted with each of the heroes and unite them — entirely different, sometimes bizarre and frightening, with their motives, but one purpose for all — to find out the real causes of what happened to them.

Lead the group of the adventurers on a journey and explore a varied and intricate world, meet new characters and reveal plot-related secrets. Remember, beauty is deceptive — danger lurks everywhere. Test your skills in challenging turn-based battles, adjusting your combat tactics and optimal team combinations for each foe you met on the way.

Key Features

  • Seven memorable characters, including Kiba, the dark child, Charlie, the talking sniper badger, Alister, the brave guy with an Ether gauntlet, and Ruby, the princess of the thieves. Each of them has their role (sometimes more than one) on the battlefield and their own mission on a big journey.

  • Character development system is based on equipment: each piece of armour, weapon or accessory gives a unique skill to a particular hero, expanding their range of attack types and defensive boosts. Find, trade for, or craft new equipment to improve your characters and make them versatile and adaptable.

  • Complex tactical turn-based battles: a variety of elaborate enemies won't let you complete the whole game using a single tactic or invincible team build. Choose wisely the squad you take in a fight — proper positioning and awareness are essential to your success struggling against powerful foes.

  • The vivid and diverse world of Ree'fah: immerse yourself in the hand-painted fantasy universe of Grimshade and discover an impressive history in more than 20 hours of an exciting journey.
