There is not a rendered image present anywhere in the game, nor has any artist used rendering tools in the production of the graphics.

The style of play is very similar to that of CRPG'S during the golden age of computer Roleplaying before 1992 like Eye of the Beholder, Bane of the Cosmic Forge, Crusaders of the Dark Savant, Might & Magic, The Bard's Tale and other classic games.

The emphasis in the game is on the story, exploration, discovery, character advancement, puzzle solving, strategic phased combat, treasure hunting, inventory management and interaction with the non-player characters encountered during play.

Grimoire will only require the following system requirements:

  • 386SX Motherboard or better (Pentium 90 or better recommended)

  • DOS / Win 95 / NT / OS-2 / Macintosh PowerPC, 8 megs minimum, 16 megs recommended

  • VESA Compatible Video Card

  • Sound Card

  • Microsoft Mouse

  • 30 megs Hard Drive Space

Some computers may require Sci-Tech's Disk Doctor or the UniVBE drivers to assure VESA compatibility. A chipset specific mode will be available but it may not run on all cards out there. The default is VESA support, but the user will be able to configure it to run on direct video calls to the video card BIOS if his chipset is supported. This can result in speed and performance similar to Direct X or X-mode. Grimoire in chipset specific mode can attain frame rates of 24 fps on a 486. Pretty good for a pixel perfect SVGA game.
