      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.

    2. Creator Miguel Duran on February 16

      I'll wear that powdered wig yet!

    3. Creator Neil on December 25

      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.

    4. Creator Jesse on December 22

      Ryan check you settings shot loot might be turned off?

    5. Creator Robert Winckler on December 21

      hey i didn't get a key even tho i tried the keyresender via humblestore. can you help me out?

    6. Creator Ryan ries on December 21

      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

    7. Creator AstralWanderer on December 4

      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!

      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.

    9. Creator Jesse on August 25, 2014

      They post fortnightly updates on their forum. This is the latest.…

    10. Creator garkham on August 24, 2014

      @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.

    11. Creator garkham on August 24, 2014

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

    12. Creator Slarkki on August 11, 2014

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

    13. Creator Jarrah on August 8, 2014

      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?

    14. Creator Tony Nap on July 24, 2014

      hey how about an update huh.....

    15. Creator Mattias Krantz on July 17, 2014

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

    16. Creator Jean-Luc on July 17, 2014

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

    17. Creator Chuck Brewer on June 12, 2014

      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 :)

    18. Creator Crate Entertainment on May 25, 2014

      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:…

    19. Creator Ropya on May 18, 2014

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

    20. Creator Crate Entertainment on April 30, 2014

      Andrew - if you contact we'd be happy to assist you.

    21. Creator Crate Entertainment on April 30, 2014

      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. Check out the update for instructions on how to get Grim Dawn and start playing:

    23. Creator Andrew (looking for players Perth, Aust) on March 26, 2014

      Who do I need to speak to about obtaining my second key?
      Help would be appreciated.

    24. Creator Joe P on March 10, 2014

      Confused... Purchased a lower tier kickstarter for full game access, but now Grim Dawn has become some form of Greenlight game where I won't be able to play until its finished (if it ever will be)?

    25. Creator Hoder Jensen on February 1, 2014

      Will there be a different key for the expansion or will those of us who has "Grim Dawn Digital Release + Expansion!" keys automatically be detected as a +expansion key, when that time comes?

      Also please do check out this kickstarter - It's a documentary series on gaming, done by some really talented guys who has done lots of other quality content, eg. the making of The Last of Us and the history of Street Fighter for Capcom.

    26. Creator Crate Entertainment on January 27, 2014

      -Flavius, you should be receiving email notifications from KS when we post updates, such as when alpha was released. Could it have ended up in your spam box?

      -Alexandre, it hasn't been sent yet but the sound crew finished the final masters and are just putting some last touches on it / getting it all in order. It should be available in the next month or so and will appear on your humble store page for download (the digital version - physical merchandise will go out after the game is finished).

    27. Creator Alexandre MANGIN on January 26, 2014

      I don't remember, so does someone know if the soundtracks have been sent? (I am a Digital Deluxe Edition backer)

    28. Creator Flavius Goicea on January 23, 2014

      Nevermind, I figured it out.... painless, but wish there was some better way to notify backers who don't watch KS pages constantly. I had to find out about the the early access through a Gamestop video on my Roku. :-O

    29. Creator Flavius Goicea on January 23, 2014

      I'm a $50 digital backer. Can I play the Early Access game on Steam or some other place? How do I go about doing that? Thanks...

    30. Creator Dan Lowe on December 29, 2013

      And I just put in a good couple hours in early access - very happy about how the game is turning out. Already like it better than Path of Exile.

    31. Creator Dan Lowe on December 29, 2013

      Have to throw in my two cents in support of those people who see kickstarter for what it is: a crowdfunding site. We can't even expect that a project we support on kickstarter will ever get made; we're simply donating in hopes that our contribution will increase that likelihood.
      I completely agree that if selling the game through Steam sales helps to fund your company and thus (hopefully) improve the quality of the product you deliver, that you should do it. Limiting your funding opportunities because your kickstarter supporters didn't have the same 'deal' is absurd. Kickstarter isn't about deals, it's about supporting projects we want to exist. I don't even expect more money to directly correlate to more time spent on the game. That's not how profit works.
      I understand people's frustration, but have to believe it derives from us not having bottomless financial resources. At the same time, though, I find it ironic that we commit time to complaining about not saving a few dollars for a game on the Internet (that would have cost $40+ from a studio with corporate overhead) while spending nowhere near that effort to correct the conditions that make us lack those resources in the first place. Take that how you will, and I'm not barking at people to 'go get a job' (I don't have one, and can hopefully afford to never have one again), but there are battles that need to be fought and this is not one of them.

    34. Creator Jean-Marc Therrien on November 16, 2013

      Hi I backed at the 45$ so I get early access but I can't get my key from the HumbleStore. I sent them a mail and am waiting for an answer. Anything you can do?

    35. Creator TrentJaspar on November 14, 2013

      As somebody who only backed at the basic tier, I'm happy to have more $$ in your pockets, and more testers prior to v1.0.0. :-)

    36. Creator TrentJaspar on November 14, 2013

      "I totally did not realize people would see Steam Early Access as different from us continuing to sell the game through our web store."
      -- Steam is much more visible reminder that they no longer have exclusive early access-- and exclusivity is a big reason why some folks back early access, or even back at all. I bet some didn't even realize you could jump in on alpha/beta access via your web store. My US$0.02.

    37. Creator TrentJaspar on November 14, 2013

      "[We] plan to open up access to existing digital release backers by Jan as a compromise given that the game should have been finished by now."
      -- GREAT News! Thanks, Crate!

    38. Creator Jesus on November 13, 2013

      Agree with Courtade Pierre-Alexandre on this:
      "The problem is the "EXCLUSIVE" access to the beta was sell on kickstarter for 35$, without a real feedback on the game, and one year latter it's only 27$ on steam"

      It doesn´t feel good. Some of us supported this game from one year ago, now we see the game on early access, cheaper and new supporters jumping right in to try the beta. Like seeing that girl you always wanted going out with a guy she just met.

      It´s not dramatic, I can even understand the developers. But next time it will better to wait before preordering too early. Even if in the end you get the girl.

    39. Creator Crate Entertainment on November 13, 2013

      "maybe im wrong but i think the game is in steam and released and the key dont work."

      Manuel, the game is only out on Early Access and is still being developed. However, you will be able to play soon as we plan to open up access to existing digital release backers by Jan as a compromise given that the game should have been finished by now.

    40. Creator Crate Entertainment on November 13, 2013

      "Have you guys reconsidered your stance on linux now after the SteamOS announcement? Any plans to try and port it now with that in mind?"

      Hi Ben, unfortunately we are still not in a place where we have the time / resources to consider a port. First priority is finishing the game. At that point, we'll have to see where we are and whether it makes sense. On the upside though, while it may not be as good as a port, we've heard from some linux users that Grim Dawn does run well with Wine.

    41. Creator madGamer on November 12, 2013

      we have to understand the big delay. The game will have the double of the content that they initially said. i will be waiting for this great game.

    42. Creator Manuel Otero Moreira on November 12, 2013

      hey i pay for the game and the steam number dont work. fix this.
      Thanks for purchasing Grim Dawn Digital Release!

      When the game is released, you'll find it available to download right here!
      Please note: The "Grim Dawn Access Key" will be used for installation of the final game if it is not activated on Steam.
      Steam keys will be available upon release.
      maybe im wrong but i think the game is in steam and released and the key dont work.

    43. Creator Courtade Pierre-Alexandre on November 12, 2013

      The problem is the "EXCLUSIVE" access to the beta was sell on kickstarter for 35$, without a real feedback on the game, and one year latter it's only 27$ on steam and worst, only 540 RUB (~16,5$) on the ru version of steam which is less than the minimal pledge.

      I think it's disrespectful to the people who back the game, you should do the same way as Planetary Annihilation.

    44. Creator Sean Hull on November 11, 2013

      For what it's worth. I have been playing and have enjoyed it quite a bit. I found two MINOR bugs, but my biggest issue was that I hit the end of the playable part ;)

    45. Creator Ben Pottinger on November 10, 2013

      Have you guys reconsidered your stance on linux now after the SteamOS announcement? Any plans to try and port it now with that in mind?

    46. Creator JediaKyrol on November 9, 2013

      Alpha, Beta, Potato...same thing...just go back through those last couple and mentally swap the words.

    47. Creator Mattias Krantz on November 9, 2013

      @Jedia You do know that its not in apha right? Its in beta.. Just to let you know, so if people complaint because they dont get the Alpha, they are several months late..

    48. Creator JediaKyrol on November 8, 2013

      That's what I said...people are complaining in the forums and on steam and even a few posts here about not getting the alpha for free when they didn't pledge at that tier (one of which was apparently you! Unless I misread that "In my opinion it's also unfair to see the game on Steam" bit...then I apologize.) the point that Crate had to respond here about it. I'm saying I DID pledge at the $18 and I am happy to wait for the full game to come out...and am happy the game gets more coverage no matter where or how it happens. People who buy off of steam or on the website don't get any of the bonuses Kickstarter backers there's nothing to whinge about.

    49. Creator Sabin Figaro on November 8, 2013

      No, you're not actually - which you'd know if you'd bother reading the comments so far. Nobody expected to play the alpha, so take your hostile and antagonising rubbish back to the circle-jerk on the forums. Thanks.
