      For those asking about the DRM-Free copy, we're working with GoG to distribute those, as many people seem to favor that service and it will make it easy for non-Steam users to receive updates and access multiplayer match-making, if they want that. We're hoping to distribute those keys either at the end of this week or early next week. The GoG keys will replace the 32 digit keys we originally sent out, back before we really knew about GoG as an option.

      There is an on-going thread about the DRM-Free build and other backer virtual rewards and why that was delayed: http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php…

      "A week and a half after the release announcement and I still haven't got my key. Where would I get it? Is it so hard to send the backers a message showing them how to get their game keys?"

      Sorry if you missed them but we've sent out at least 3 separate updates about backer keys, which should have been emailed to you unless you have KS notifications turned off. We've also pinned threads on the forum with information about how to retrieve keys. In update #43 we even sent out an extra reminder at the end about where to get keys.

      Here is a link to a forum post with information on how to retrieve them for anyone who needs it: http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php…

      If you have any troubles, please contact us at support@crateentertainment.com

      Thank you

      A week and a half after the release announcement and I still haven't got my key. Where would I get it? Is it so hard to send the backers a message showing them how to get their game keys?

      You already send the activation keys? I haven't received nothing :(

      Congrats on the final build! I haven't played in a quite a while, but I will probably give it another go sometime. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to the expansion.

      Is it possible to get a Steam key if you no longer care about the DRM-Free version?

    7. Jalister on

      I'm not complaining. This has been a great project. I only played a short bit in an early release to see how it was developing, but have otherwise held out for the final release.

      I would at least like to know when we can expect the DRM-free version. Is it a few days, weeks, months or don't hold your breath away? Just let us know so we know how soon we'll get to play.

    8. Jalister on

      @James Sunderland - In my opinion your money is more important than Steam users' money. The more support for DRM-free the better.

      I'm waiting for my DRM-free version as well.

    9. wenchwogg on

      Congrats, I've played a few hours so far and I love it. My first KS ever just got officially released! :)

    10. Zolgar on

      James, as per the latest update they're working on getting the DRM free version ASAP now that the game is finished and out of 'beta'. They used Steam for the beta phase because Steam is set up to integrate early access easily for both players and developers.

    11. James Sunderland on

      When will the DRM-free version be available? I have posted on the forums and on the update here on KS and gotten no response. Why are DRM-free versions being treated as less important? My money is as good as a steam users' money.

      This is not an optimal place to put this but I have a slight tweak request about UI functionality while 'shooting'. When you use 'shift' and fire arrows or spells from your position there is one small oversight. If an item comes under your cursor you cannot fire. I'd like to request that if you hold down a 'Stationary Attack' button your cursor automatically ignores any items and you can keep shooting at that direction. Currently dropped items can provide annoyingly efficient cover for your enemies.

      i've got a problem with my key, it has been redeemed by someone else and i canot have acces to the game :/

      I've never gone out my way to comment on a Kickstarter before, but this is worth it.
      Grim Dawn is probably the best, or second best, project I've backed on here.
      Excellent updates from the creators, the game is utterly wonderful. They've listened to the community then added above and beyond the original scope (and the stretch goals!).
      One of my favourite games which I have thoroughly enjoyed playing over and over again as it's been built piece by piece.
      I am so excited now it's feature complete. Thank you Crate! <3

      I must say I was worried as Diablo 3 really bored me, and Torchlight 2 was fun but nowhere near as much as Diablo 2, with it's grittiness and darkness.
      Grim Dawn is fan-tas-tic, really. It hits just the right spots. Thank you so much !

      Crate Entertainment, I really admire your dedication at finishing this project.

      How is it going? A compliment btw on how you guys keep going. This was my 1st kickstarter and for a micro team effort you really went for it . Will any graphic overhaul be planned to bring it into the release day times? Or is that being done with each update / patch? I must admit i havent checked the forum in a too long time.

      @eisprinzessin: Thanks for the pointer to the article, but it makes no mention of any DRM-free release.

      As I've noted in the latest update at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crateentertainment/grim-dawn/posts/1334562 Crate Entertainment have not even made a statement about DRM-free availability and this is 2 years after their estimated release.

      Guys, if you're not going to honour your commitments, at least have the decency to admit it and provide refunds to those who backed in the expectation of a DRM-free version.

    21. Crate Entertainment Creator on

      @Hexton - before we can print disks for a boxed version, we have to complete the game and create a master copy. Otherwise we'd be sending out disks with an unfinished game on them. Thus, the boxed version will be printed sometime after the full digital release.

    22. Stahlbart on

      Too bad I missed the opportunity to be in the credits, although I got the $100 reward :/ But as far as I know the deadline was last summer? Oh well...
      Wonder when the boxed game is gonna come out. Didn't really follow the updates. I tried to wait til full release, but is it worth to play already? Strangely enough, I'm suddenly very excited.
      So... no way for the credit thing, right?

    23. Miguel Duran on

      Three years and 59 hours in, I just want to say thank you. I've backed over 100 kickstarters and this is easily among the most satisfying, even as we're still in early release and awaiting Act 4. This has been a colossal undertaking and you've more than earned my money Day 1 if you kickstart a second project down the line.

      Hexton on

      Any word on the Boxed Copy of the game?

    25. eisprinzessin on

      @AstralWanderer - the DRM-free version will become available at release, and that will at about the end of the year. See http://www.nextpowerup.com/news/20120/crate-entertainment-q-a/ for details. It is somewhere in the middle.
      @Gareth - you will get an additional code to unlock the exclusive items on Steam.

    26. Gareth Hughes on

      How will the Kickstarter exclusive items work? Will we get them on steam?

      I'm curious about how you're going to convey the story without cinematics. maybe the community can help you there?

      AstralWanderer on

      I'd like to ask (again) when the promised DRM-free (i.e. non-Steam) version will be available for backers. We're now 19 months past its estimated release.

      I'll wear that powdered wig yet!

      Consumers with legal rights they are under no obligation to give up (cannot accept steam tos) cannot play this game as of yet BECAUSE it uses steam; therefore the update "we can all play it" is completely misrepresentative of the situation.

      i just downloaded the update and now I can't pick up any items. Even started a new character to test it out and nothing

      Another request for monthly updates on KS - backers with a dozen plus projects don't necessarily have the time to track down specific forum threads for every KS (and those bothered by updates can always unsubscribe).

      As someone who pledged for a DRM-free release, I'd also like to know when a Steam-free version will be available too. Thanks!

    35. T.J. Brumfield on

      Torment needs some help from RPG fans. They need $11k in the next 6 days to hit their stretch goal to add a new area to the game and they are getting less than $1k a day lately.

      Planescape: Torment was perhaps the greatest PC game of all time and this successor looks amazing. If you love RPGs and you haven't backed it yet, please do so.

      @Jarrah : I'm happy to see your avatar, it reminds me when KS had beautiful colors for the wheels in profile. Yet mine are totally ugly (not "rainbowed" anymore). I made a comment on this to KS team and got an answer, but really not sure they're going to repair this.

      Funny thing, Kickstarter just add the "backer number" of each project and I discover I'm the happu 46th backer of this project ! :)

      Slarkki on

      Yup, should be the time for another update. Overall the project is so much late that monthly updates should be an obvious approach :)

    40. Jarrah on

      I wish we got monthly updates.

      The August 2013 release date is pretty much in the past now, and we've only got the beta. Has the team gone off to get other jobs?

    41. Tony Nap on

      hey how about an update huh.....

    42. Mattias Krantz on

      I would also have some news on when the game is planned to be finished.

    43. Jean-Luc on

      It has been a long time since an update. How far is the game until final release?

    44. Chuck Brewer on

      I've been holding off playing any of the beta/early stuff because I like to be surprised, but I'm pretty excited to play that I may give in :)

      Hey Ropya,

      Sometimes viruses masquerade as valid operating system files and this can cause anti-virus programs to register false positives when they mistake the legitimate files for viruses. For some reason, Grim Dawn seems to be generating false positives with some anti-virus programs and, unfortunately, since we don't know what files are triggering it, there isn't a lot we can do on our end to prevent it. I'm sorry if this is causing you undue frustration - it has been a major pain for us too since several people have experienced this issue and even posted warnings to other users. There is more detail on this issue in the Steam support topic and some possible work-arounds:

      https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php…

    46. Ropya on

      Anyone know why the exe for this would be flagged as a trojan virus?

    47. Crate Entertainment Creator on

      Andrew - if you contact support@crateentertainment.com we'd be happy to assist you.

    48. Crate Entertainment Creator on

      Hey Joe P - You can actually play right now. We opened the game up to all KS backers at the end of December and announced it in Update 34.
