Arrow Official Grim Dawn Kickstarter Thread

Grim Dawn - Official Kickstarter Project



Grim Dawn comes to Kickstarter!!!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...ment/grim-dawn

Quote:
Grim Dawn is an action role-playing game for PC and a spiritual successor to Titan Quest. For the past two years a small team of former Iron Lore veterans at Crate Entertainment have been developing Grim Dawn with their own, improved version of the Iron Lore engine and tools; the same technology used to create Titan Quest.

We’ve listened to years of feedback from the Titan Quest community and continue to do so every day on the Grim Dawn forums as we strive to improve upon past performance and make this our greatest work yet. The creation of Grim Dawn is guided by traditional design and old school sensibilities, with innovation only in the areas where we feel it truly improves the game and isn't just a gimmicky back of the box feature.

Grim Dawn will:
  • Be DRM Free
  • Include robust modding tools so you can create your own worlds!
  • Be faster-paced, with much more satisfying enemy hit reactions and deaths.
  • Allow you to fight house-to-house as you lay waste to enemies and the former owner’s furniture in the process. Break through walls to open up new areas of exploration!
  • Feature a more open-world design with sandbox mechanics and randomized elements that will greatly enhance replay-ability. We don’t control where you go; you do!
  • Let you combine any two of five distinct skill classes, each with multiple skill trees in which to specialize. Spend money to reclaim skill points if you’re unhappy with your build.
  • Have a refined loot system that drops far less junk-items, produces more uber randomized gear and ensured more consistent rewards from hero and boss monsters.
  • Immerse you in a gritty, dangerous, Victorian era fantasy world where humankind has been pushed to the brink of extinction by warring otherworldly powers.
  • Give players meaningful quest choices and the ability to visually change the starting town as they help to rebuild and secure the future survival of humanity.
  • Let you ally with NPC factions to earn rewards and unlock new quest lines. Be wary though, aiding one group can make another your enemy!
  • And so much more…

About DRM: is there any possibility of Grim Dawn coming to Steam? If the answer is yes, will the keys belonging to the original DRM-free releases be able to be redeemed on Steam and added to our accounts, or is that out of the question? I'm pretty sure I've seen that happen before, and the "official" Humble Indie Bundles give you an option to redeem the games on Steam and/or Desura.

I'm getting the game either way, but I like to keep everything on Steam. It's more organized.

So, I just got done pledging $85 on the Kickstarter project, and I already had the Legendary Edition preorder under my belt.

Does this mean I botched the whole upgrade process thing? Not that I really care, since supporting you guys is the most important thing here.

How can I change my pledge amount?
Visit the project page and click “Manage Your Pledge.” Enter a new amount in the pledge amount box. Note that you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
... or leave it as it is if you feel generous

I'm gonna leave it as it is. As awesome as the 100 dollar tier is, I don't want to hassle with postage.

I'm just glad I could support Crate.

Regarding "Upgrading An Existing Pre-order"...

I want to pledge an amount between two tiers. I don't care whether my legendary pre-order is counted towards my pledge, but I do care about getting any pre-order in-game items together with Kickstarter in-game items together in one game installation, so...

If I make a Kickstarter pledge and don't send the email for "Upgrading An Existing Pre-order", does that prevent pre-order in-game items from being used in the same game installation as KS in-game items?

Why won't your name be in the credits with the Early Access Edition pledge ($35) when it would have been with the Epic Edition ($32)?

Will the backside of the "small fold out paper map of the world of Cairn" contain the classes and their skill tree?

Anyway I'm waiting my box, just hope it will have Linux inside.
