Grim Quest – Overview

Written by Marcello TBL

Grim Quest

In-Game Background story

Grim Quest follows a dark fantasy / psychological (or even Lovecraftian) horror theme. I put a lot of emphasis on atmosphere and immersion, with lots of in-game text and verbose descriptions.

Without giving out too many spoilers – you are a mercenary stationed in a city under siege. The city is under threat from the Dark – a mysterious force that manifests dark aspects of the human psyche in material form. Your goal is to reach the origin of the Dark – the Tear – a wound in the fabric of reality made by some very powerful magic gone very wrong.
