Grimwood unleashes tough new mode in open beta

Play the survival roguelike social RPG free until early August.

In Grimmwood, you defend your village together with up to 30 strangers in an ageless mystical forest. Fight against the merciless monster hordes that unleash their wrath against your shelter every night.

You’re in a village in an ageless, mystical forest, together with up to 30 other strangers all of which are real, live players. Together you need to defend your village against the merciless monster hordes who unleash their wrath against your shelter every night. Use the daytime wisely to explore, gather resources, upgrade and repair. But to be able to do all that you have to eat, drink and rest, because every action in the game takes its toll on your stamina and sanity.

Every night monsters attack your village. Use the daytime and your stamina points to explore the procedurally generated forest, find weapons and useful items, collect food and resources to upgrade and forticate the village. Share tasks and decisions with the other players and work together, because night by night the monsters attacks will become more fierce.

The world of Grimmwood is engulfed by a nameless 16th century war raging across the continent. The Villagers are common folk, refugees from the big cities who seek sanctuary in the depths of the ageless Forest. Many of them have lost their loved ones and all their belongings… everything but their will to live and see another day.

The village which the survivors have discovered deep in the Great Forest seems a lot older – probably even with by centuries. It is destitute of any signs of life – nothing to even hint on what might have happened to its former inhabitants.

Ivelin G. Ivanov, head of development at Big Moustache Games said:

“Grimmwood’s Blitz Mode is a real game changer, as you now will be able to play the game in a much faster way. In Blitz Mode, one day in the game lasts only 15 minutes in real-time, instead of 24 hours. That way it allows your friends, you as well as strangers to play the game for longer time periods – one day after another. This is exactly what many players were asking for.”

Grimwood’s open beta is available on Steam now until early August.
