Grimmwood is a challenging co-op MMO, seamlessly blending elements of survival, strategy and exploration. In an ageless, mystical forest, together with up to 40 other strangers, you need to defend your Village because each night, around midnight, the monsters will attack.
Grimmwood – They Come at Night is a cooperative survival MMO that masterfully merges strands of exploration, strategy, and time-management into a cohesive whole. Its ability to consistently and genuinely inspire teamwork amongst its manifold players is a rare, laudable talent. Currently, the title is limited only by its total number of willing gamers, but it’s likely many more, like moths to an unusually attractive flame, will soon flock to Grimmwood’s bizarre light.
While providing little bursts of harrowing, strategic survival, Grimmwood falls a little short.
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.
A dark and gothic take on the survival RPG genre, in which cooperate is the only way to survive.
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 sustain its proposal, and not having one kills the essence of the title.
