Default Main Menu

Been working on getting the main menu into shape. Figured I'd share a screenshot of it with you guys to see what you thought so far.



Work on the Occult mastery also continues. I'm hoping the first 3 masteries will be done by July. I have a 4th started, so I think there is a very good chance I can have that done by Aug or Sept.

This is really great work medierra!! Probably one of the best menus I have ever seen (at least from static point of view at the screenshot, hehe)!! It has this dark feeling in it, I really like it! =) I hope the windmill will rotate! =)

Also, great news about the masteries! Will you introduce details on them then or just wait for all of them to be finished to release some specific info? =)


EDIT: Survival mode??!!

I take it this is all animated in game?

Anyways I do like it...has a spooky vibe to it and I'm sure it looks even cooler in motion

Complaint? Um...I guess the title (Grim Dawn) kinda looks photo-shopped on the scene...kinda hard to explain but it doesn't look quite right.

And what's "Survival Mode"? That sounds cool

Until the masteries are fairly finalized, I don't like to release too much info as they tend to keep changing over time until they finally solidify into a final product.

The menu has an actual level behind it with wandering enemies, weather, etc.

Looks really nice!

It would be neat if the level behind the menu was randomized so it would always be different.

Really nice to hear that! changing weather on menu? this won't be as boring anymore.

About the menu, here some critics:
-i figure you still trying to find some good free font type, but the font is pretty mediocre.
-same goes to button. look too solid and clean.
-emm i don't know how the title will look like when animated but static look a bit boring.

still all the comments emerge because of the static image. maybe when in video it will look good. with glare or shine on the button, shadows or what not on the text it will look good maybe.

above all else, this is great to see the game shaping up! great works guys!

The pic looks great, perhaps the red/yellow in Grim Dawn could animate like a fire? Also, if metal is so precious, why are the windmill blades made of metal & not wood?

That does sound awesome!

The more I think about it the more awesomerer that menu becomes.

very nice, i'd already give a 9 out of 10! ^^

And then saying how the level behind the options is not static, awesome!!! Was hoping for that when i first saw the picture.

Only reason i'm not giving 10/10 is maybe because of the title and options buttons. They look okay but (like others have commented already) something is missing. I wouldnt mind if this is the final version, but always nice to be suprised at final release.

i specificly like the coffins in the front of the picture.

quick question: Is that a closed book with a cross lying on top that wood pile on the lower left corner? Just wondering because it reminded me of another (retarded) discussion i read on a different forum from a 'well-known' game developper. (Some of its fans that are here also prolly know who and what i'm talking about )

Once again..... Crate caters to it's fans!!! (unlike most gaming companies do)
Keep it up.
