An Amazing Start
July 31, 2013 - Spicy Horse Games
Thank you, Steam supporters! You've showered Grimm with positive comments and a steady stream of up-votes. We're flattered and more than a little surprised. Though we were asked repeatedly to put Grimm on Greenlight, we resisted out of fear of rejection. The age and casual nature of the game led us to believe the Steam community would reject it outright. Boy were we wrong! Goes to show how much we don't know (not a lot)!
We've also seen a massive amount of press coverage - again, odd, since we didn't announce the Greenlight submission or make any real noise about it. Once again we thought no one would pay attention, much less give it coverage on all the major gaming sites. Wrong again! Check out all this amazing press coverage:
There's more, but you get the basic idea. Wow!
Many of you have asked for game-play footage. Back in the day a YouTube guy named "UngluedWaterGaming" did a series of "Let's Play" videos for Grimm, highlighting just about every episode we released. Here's a small sample:
Grimm - S2E3 - The Singing Bone
Grimm - S1E5 - The Girl Without Hands
Grimm - S1E3 - The Fisherman and His Wife
Check out his YouTube channel and you'll find a ton more.
In total there are 23 Episodes of Grimm. That's over 12 hours of content with each episode being 30 minutes (or more) in length.
The game was developed over 5 years ago using the Unreal3 engine. It ran poorly on a lot of machines back in the day - but should run great on today's computers. Keep that in mind when asking about Mac and Linux ports. Though we are supporters (and users) of both Linux and Mac, we're not yet certain we'll be able to bring Grimm over to either - for one thing, we need to find the source code! Just know that we will research the topic and do our best to respond to these requests.
Many of you asked about bundling of episodes - and we've heard your feedback. Our plan is to distribute all 23 episodes in a single bundle for a single price. That way Grimm won't clutter up your Steam interface. That's the plan - please give us time to make sure we're able to execute on it.
Regarding pricing... We're still talking about price-point, but considering the age of the game and unique nature of the presentation, we're probably going to end up with a $9.99USD (or less) price point. We're open to feedback on this (and everything else)! We're pretty surprised at the huge amount of positive feedback and hadn't really though about pricing. Maybe we should go nuts and make it $1.99 for everything? What do you think??
Any additional questions or concerns, please leave them in the comments. One small request from us to you - please be polite in the comments. We're not out to harm anyone, cheat anyone or cause hurt. Seriously. If you have an issue with something we've said or done, let us know - but understand we, like everyone else in the world, respond better to polite conversation vs. angry accusations. If you don't like Grimm, that's fine. Don't vote for it. Just remember, It's Okay to Not Like Things...
Thanks again for all the love and support!
