Fans of Titan Quest, look here!

GRIM DAWN is an action role-playing game intended for digital distribution on the PC. It is being developed by veterans of Iron Lore entertainment, the makers of Titan Quest. Grim Dawn is being built with Crate's own improved version of the Iron Lore engine and toolset; the same technology used to create Titan Quest. As a spiritual successor, Grim Dawn will attempt to better perfect the magical formula of exploration, character advancement, and loot collection pioneered by Diablo.

Players will be thrust into the dark, war-torn world of Cairn where a once proud empire has been brought to ruin and the human race driven to the edge of extinction. Cairn has become ground zero of an eternal war between two otherworldly powers, one seeking to use human bodies as a resource, the other intent upon destroying the human race before that can happen. This cataclysmic war has not only decimated human civilization but is warping the very fabric of reality and, in its wake, giving life to new horrors.

For humankind it is the dawn of a grim new age where iron has replaced gold as currency and the importance of salt as a weapon makes it far too valuable to waste on food. Small enclaves of human survivors exist scattered throughout the world, holed up in hidden refuges. These humans have quietly watched the warring invaders destroy one another and have become wise to the strengths and vulnerabilities of their otherworldly foes. A few survivors have begun to exhibit strange new abilities after surviving possession or exposure to the warp. These unnatural powers are feared by some but give many new hope of launching a resistance to fight the "outsiders" and reclaim what's left of their world.

Indie developed PC-exclusive steampunk/post-apocalyptic/fantasy action RPG in the style of Titan Quest?
*throws money at the screen*

The devs are partially funded by donations/pre-orders - if you choose one of the two larger donation options you get your name in the credits, access to the alpha (and/or) beta version(s) of the game and an as yet unannounced bonus in-game accessory.

What's Titan Quest?  :lolhammer:

It's a fantasy action-RPG (similar to Diablo 2 or Torchlight), based around ancient Greek, Egyptian and Asian mythology.

Wikipedia article

Steam Store page

If you decide on buying it at some point, make sure you get the Gold Edition with the Immortal Throne expansion - it improves the base game considerably and adds quite a bit of new content (also, Steam seems to be selling the Gold Edition for the same price as the base game costs by itself for some reason).

They've started up a Kickstarter page with a funding goal of $280,000 (with $125,960 pledged so far).

I read something that said otherwise. Probably the wikipedia page. Still, they keep that as a low priority :cry:

Their Kickstarter is now well over the funding goal ($329,053 at the time of this post), and the Crate team have posted a set of stretch goals for various higher funding levels - the first of which (dual-wielding pistols :D ) needs another ~$20,000.

There's also apparently someone called "Serge" who has offered to back them $100,000 :-o

Is this kind of funding a donation, or do you get it back?

...this is a new game yet to be developed... maybe nobody plays the old game that this is based on, but that's why we make new games (openmachines)
