Hell Hath Frozen Over… Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar Launches

Posted by Rampant Coyote on July 7, 2017

If you are an old-school computer RPG fan… you already know about this. You’ve known about it for years. Maybe decades.

Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar is finally launching. 

This is a Wizardry 7-like title that probably holds the vaporware championship title. Duke Nukem Forever was its closest competition. Hopefully it will prove a better title than DNF. It boasts 600 hours of gameplay, which tells me two things:

#1 – It had better not be boring, because that would be a waste of hundreds of unplayed hours.

#2 – Regression-testing 600 hours of gameplay, at even 40 hours a week, would have taken MONTHS every single time. Ugh.

Anyway….  I guess we’ll all finally be able to check out the masterpiece that’s been in development longer than some RPG fans have been alive in a matter of hours. I’m looking forward to it, and not just out of morbid curiosity. I honestly hope it’s a fantastic game.

    Nope, it ain’t launched yet. Latest news post at the link is headlined “Grimoire is Pending, Last Minute Testing and Repairs”. Cleve strikes again.

    This thing is like the Zeno’s Paradox of video games. If every delay is half the length of the previous delay, will it ever actually ship?

    Wow, well it almost launched I guess. Hey, we’ve waited 25 years, what’s another few months right? 🙂

    A few months? With canceling the countdown, I’m thinking the chance of it launching in 2017 or even 2018 is down to about 50/50.

    So yeah. Hell’s still hot, I s’pose.
