Game Information

Available on:PCAug 2, 2018

Developer: Big Moustache Games

Publisher: Headup Games

Genres: MMO, RPG

Grimmwood is a challenging co-op MMO, which seamlessly blends together elements of survival, strategy and exploration into one game. You are plunged into the middle of a mystical forest and you will be part of a village with up to 39 other human players; all of which you have never met before. Each day at midnight the monsters will attack your village and you have to band together to organize your defenses successfully in order to survive. In the daytime you explore the depths of the forest to gather its resources or you can stay within the safety of the village to construct or repair buildings and walls in preparation for the inevitable hordes of monsters which will attack you relentlessly. Choose wisely though on what you want to do! Every action you take costs stamina points of which you only have a limited amount of during each day cycle.

Reviews

Even though is a good game, it's difficult to recommend Grimmwood. Not because it doesn't deserve it, because it does, but because, being a social experience, it needs a community to sustent its proposal, and not having one kills the escence of the title.

If you don't mind playing for short periods every day I recommend giving this game a shot. Big Moustache Games does deserve to reap the rewards of the game they've crafted.

Grimmwood combines punishing, rogue-like gameplay with elements of an MMO to create something unique, if a little slow for some people's taste. With player action limited by time, those looking for a game to dip in and out of regularly will find the fun while those looking to progress fast in a single sitting will likely find frustration.
