Grim Quest - Old School RPG
Grim Quest tries to blend tabletop RPG adventure vibes, familiar dungeon crawling and roguelike mechanics, and a classic turn-based combat system into something fresh and, hopefully, entertaining. Instead of flashy graphics, it relies on written storytelling and worldbuilding which, together with carefuly picked music and visuals, serve to build up the atmosphere of mystery and immerse you in its surreal and mind-bending dark fantasy world.
"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 citizens, besiege it from without."
