Grimshade is a story-driven tactical RPG featuring turn-based combat system and non-linear progression, set in a fantasy world.

Grimshade features an intricate and detailed storyline, complex tactical turn-based combat and a well-developed role system, based on characters' equipment and group relations.

The game takes place in the medieval world of technomagic and steam engines, filled with the mysterious energy called "Ether".

Become a leader of a group of heroes with their own stories and unique characters. Explore the Grimshade world. Discover the fantastic world of Ree'Fah where you will face unknown monsters, solve numerous mysteries, and enjoy unexpected plot twists. You will build relationships between the characters and get familiar with their past. Your success depends on decisions you take: explore the universe, fight difficult battles, decide the fate of the heroes and the future of this world!

Your great adventure in the gloomy, war-torn, and cataclysm-stricken world of Ree'Fah begins now! The town of Eleores once, it is built on mystical and strangely beautiful ruins of ancient settlements. The new citizens must fight extra hard to survive. They did their best at creating a beautiful place to live, but Brann grew up into an exhausted, gloomy, and sad city. The atmosphere of these streets, descending from the mountain slopes, is full of fear and anxiety. The weather here is often stormy, and the shadows of the mountain peaks make it even more desperate.

However, it's better to live here than beyond the borders of the kingdom. Umbrages, creations of the Dark Source, and wild animals that dwell in the dense forest have long surrounded Brann's walls, cutting it off from the outside world. A careless traveler is in danger of being ripped apart and devoured. The only thing that people could confront the evil with was turning the Dark Source to their advantage. They converted the ether flowing from it into the equivalent of our electricity. Now Brann has the power to defend and illuminate itself! The Alchemy Order protects and promotes the interests of King Wilhelm Einhaim's subjects; therefore, they learned to extract the energy of Light that extends life, cures wounds, and heals diseases. The unique technology significantly improved the lives of the townsfolk and gave the kingdom a chance to resist their natural enemies. But are Brann's brave defenders good enough to protect the city from the attack of a neighboring state?

We are sure that the world of Ree'Fah will conquer your heart with its charming atmosphere of gloom.
