Thumbs up Grim Dawn- On Titan Quest Engine

Ironlore, the guys behind Titan Quest went out of business soon after the IT expansion. (due to some piracy and related problems).
Some of the guys from IL have banded together to form Crate Entertainment, which is now currently producing a ARPG called Grim Dawn on the TQ engine.

Titan Quest was a great game, and could have been so much better with a few more expansions/balances in skills etc.


Here's their official website: Grim Dawn - Crate Entertainment

I would think the fact they released a pretty buggy game didn't help sales as well.

However this game looks interesting, kind of like a torchlight with multiplayer. Hopefully it will carry the same price tag. Though I do wonder how well it will do with Diablo 3 on the horizon. From my quick skimming of the site it looks like it is still in early dev.

Here's hoping it doesn't suffer the same buggy launch TQ did.

Actually, they went out of business following the poorly-received Soulstorm expansion for the original Dawn Of War game. That was some time after Immortal Throne was released.

to be honest I bought Titan Quest and did not like it, really buggy and gameplay was lacking for me. So I wouldnt be so quick to blame pirates, thats what the industry does when they think they make the next best thing to gods right thumb but in reality its a pile of smelly feces
