Build 12

Greetings GD Backers!

At long last, Build 12 has finally been released into the wild. This was a huge effort due to significant rework of the pathing system that was necessary to fix a major performance issue some people were experiencing. We also totally overhauled the animations and animation system for the player character. There are many other fixes and improvements included as well as some new items and item art.

Meanwhile, we've also been working hard on the next big content release, which should be done before the end of year. We've been putting in more effort to have quests that are found through exploration and quests that offer choice and consequence. The 4th class mastery, Nightblade, may be done even sooner; possibly by early October.

As I mentioned in the previous update, we're going to open up access to "beta" before the end of the year since alpha has been running for 4 months and, aside from content delays, the game is in pretty good shape, as far as playability goes. I don't have a firm date yet but we may do this in October along with the release of Nightblade.

I also wanted to thank everyone for the kind comments and understanding that followed our previous update. It continues to be a pleasure working with this community. : )

Here is the B12 change log

      Yes, please release the beta soon Arthur, it’s been a long wait for many of us that have been patiently waiting for the game.

      I can't wait to get my hands on the beta! Please don't rush anything.. but don't delay too much longer!

      Thanks for the update, no need to rush it out since there are quite a few games coming in October and November! :)

      Keep up the good work. I am a realist and I understand how delays can happen. I was only able to chip in $1.00 for this game but I am glad I did. I like the premise of the game and the idea of making something for a community by giving them a chance to help shape the game. Great job and I will be buying the game upon release.

      Arthur, if you pull this off you'll make my Christmas a very happy one. Thanks so much for making Grim Dawn.

      For heaven's sake Evan - how delayed was D3 before it was finally released? Years - and Blizzard is a much bigger gamemaker than Crate. If you're that unhappy go to this thread:

      and have a read through.

      Thanks for the update. I look forward to the beta.

    7. Creator Evan on September 14, 2013

      If I knew how long it would take you guys to release this I would have backed out. It was estimated for Aug 2013. Now the beta might not even make October. Probably wont play this when it comes out to be honest, so many new games, this is just getting old. Feel like I was mislead by this kickstarter campaign...

      Waiting for the beta version...

      Hi team awesome, i played the latest build today and had some problems with hit detection, i recorded it on twitch in case you are interested. (It appeared on the same spot, twice, with the same kind of enemies)

    10. Creator Luis Vargas on September 14, 2013

      Yeah, where can I get it?

    11. Creator Erzo Hoekzema on September 14, 2013

      Good job guys! :) I know you're just a small team with lots of real life stuff going on too, so every update is sweet! Hope you get the beta going soon and good luck with the last parts of development :D

    12. Creator drakrochma on September 14, 2013
