The Grand Grimoire Chronicles Episode 4: Walkthrough

Story

After an unseasonably warm spring, with weeks of extremely dry weather across the country, the water levels in Wolrisdon Reservoir have dropped to unprecedented levels. It used to be an old village, abandoned, to be purposefully flooded and turned into a reservoir. Now, the drought has revealed the historic village that stood there.

You’re being sent to Wolrisdon to write about the old village, but upon arriving you discover a police presence, leading to the curious case of Elizabeth Beck.

This is a point and click adventure where you must explore, use objects and solve puzzles in order to get to the bottom of the mystery.

I reckon it’s going to be another couple of weeks until it’s ready, but I’ll get it out as soon as I can. In the meantime, enjoy some artwork of Lochlan Boyd.

The Grand Grimoire Chronicles Episode 1 place in Kongregate’s Monthly Contest February 2019

The Grand Grimoire Chronicles Episode 1 (TGGC Ep. 1), following on from the success of its predecessor has also won one of Kongregate’s monthly contests.

In February 2019, TGGC Ep. 1 did even better, managing to make it as one of the first runner ups.

There were a few criticisms of the game, but it was all stuff that I can improve upon. These improvements will make it into The Grand Grimoire Chronicles Episode 2!
