Cleve, any chance of enabling pre-orders?
I'm sure lots of people (myself included) would appreciate the game automatically installing when it releases, so no need to stay awake to some atrocious hour!

Thanks again :)

Should probably just have it auto-download to all Steam clients so their systems are prepared for their inevitable purchase.

Steam doesn't generally allow pre-orders for games unless they're from large publishers thta have already enabled pre-orders in retail or such. Steam's own policies basically tell devs not to do it.

Heh, fair enough!

But wait... why would they not get their pre order? The only way that happens is if you push the date back again.

If there’s even a ghost of a chance that the date gets pushed back again, I would come clean soon. If it gets pushed back again then I assure you screaming autistic kids will be the least of your concerns.

That being said, game preorders are stupid anyway and nobody should preorder videogames. Especially with digital distribution and a refund policy.

This is exactly the sort of thing I am talking about. I just don't need the headaches or even to listen to all this sophistry. It's all so simple. I'm releasing the game next week on August 1st, you can buy it then. That's all there has to be to it. I think even going on about pre-orders is just an excuse to start some conflict somewhere and give you something to argue about. I don't need it. Sure, maybe people are outraged that they can't pre-order. Or maybe their blood stays mostly acidic from drinking 8 liters of Diet Coke a day and if they couldn't get angry about this it would be something else.

Just relax. I made Grimoire for people not so they could freak out, run down the street naked screaming and cutting at their forehead with a razor blade. No, I didn't. I made Grimoire so people could experience joy, fun, adventure and lose themselves in another world. If you're on this page for any other reason you are on the wrong page.

Hey man, I'm not mad, I was genuinely asking the question so there'd be zero delay between release and me playing it. Believe me, I am super excited to play this next week that I'll probably stay up all night, sleep be damned!

EDIT: Although... if I carve Grimoire into my forehead with a razor, will that make it release quicker? ;)

Please don't engage in self-harm over Grimoire. It is supposed to bring on the Incline. The Incline is a good thing. It is not a bad thing.

Cleve. Your track record for releasing this game hasn't been exactly stellar. I don't understand what there is left to get ready for release if the game is done. You said it is done. Is it done, yes or no? If it's done, why don't you let us preorder it. You have missed many upon many deadlines for the last twenty years. You should understand why we have little faith in this release. I have been waiting for twenty something years to play this. You have also said over the last twenty years it is ready.Thank you.

Oh the insanity of people whining about not having pre-order. It just goes to say that people will complain about anything. /boggle
No pre-order hats for TF2 and the people are gonna cry.

Exactly why he's not taking people's money in advance, so that if something goes wrong he doesn't have to answer to angry customers and "oh look this is a repeat of Indigo!", "Fraud!"... and if he was allowing for preorders in the first place we'd get "oh are people seriously preordering a game that doesn't exist!?".. he'll never win with any of you... honestly, you lot are Cancer.

Death my frustration lies with the fact he has lied to us many times about a finished product.. For twenty plus years it has been lie after lie after excuse after excuse.. He said the game is done, now he saying it is taking a lot of work for it to be deployed.. That tells me it isn't finished and we are being fed another line of garbage.. Yes I am frustrated..

I am not trying to be a jerk, but we have been fed a huge line for decades.. I love Might and Magic, Wizardry, and other dungeon crawlers.. I personally want to own Grimoire or I wouldn't be here.. I am simply tired of being fed a bunch of crap only to be let down.

Cleve, calling us your fan base, who has waited for twenty years autistic is completely not professional.. You are fed us line after line and some of us have given you money with the promise it would be done in 2013. I don't know about you, but when a developer says it's coming out in 2013 if we give you money, only to have it not released doesn't exactly show you value us, your fan base..

I understand, but from his perspective; either approach to the question would have opened up a can of worms, given it's past.. honestly. I just think out of all the threads to call him out on, doing it over here seems like a cheap shot since you can also spin the fact that he's accepting preorders as something that's negative, too.

Nice constructive discussion.. So many turn into garbage.. Truth be told I want to see this game released.. It sounds so awesome from a creative genious.. I don't want to see another delay.
