Alfonzo's Review:

Grimar: A Tale of Fame and Fortune is truly a one-of-a-kind game that stands out from the crowd. From its unique gameplay mechanics to its charming cartoonish art style, this game offers an experience unlike any other.

The story takes place in the peaceful Kingdom of Grimar, which suddenly falls under attack by mysterious forces. As a weak and naked adventurer, it is up to you to uncover the truth behind these attacks and carve your own path towards fame, fortune, and power.


The gameplay in Grimar revolves around making choices that directly impact your character's fame, gold reserves, followers, and overall story. Choice Events present you with decision points where you must carefully choose between "Yes" or "No". Each choice carries consequences that can shape your character's journey in significant ways.

Battle Events employ a table RPG system where dice rolls determine the outcome of battles. The more strength you possess, the higher chance you have at defeating enemies. However, beware of your life bar as death means game over!

Success and Failure Events introduce an element of luck into gameplay. After selecting an action during events or battles,
You still need luck on your side for successful outcomes.
Your chance is determined by four shuffled cards representing rates
Of success or failure determining whether
An action succeeds or not.

Learning skills is another feature in the game. By answering events in the correct order, you can acquire valuable skills that will aid you throughout your journey. Who knows when you'll stumble upon a valuable treasure chest that needs opening?

Be wary of events with side effects as well. Your choices may lead to unexpected consequences, which could be either good or bad.
