Grimind is a 2D physics based adventure, platform game in horror/creepy theme. Grimind casts you into forgotten caves and ancient crypts, without memories. While being there you must to demonstrate big manual skills to pass obstacles and solve non trivial puzzles to get out of scary environment and additionally remind yourself or even discover who you really are and what are doing there alone – but is it sure… that you are there, alone?

Key features:

  • Dynamic gameplay combined with a frightening experience
  • Physics based gameplay - It provides you the possibility to do whatever you want. Every single dynamic object can be dragged, carried or thrown which gives you enormous freedom.
  • Narration - While playing, the character is talking, telling the player what he's feel, if he's scared, or what he is thinks about the current situation.
  • Challenge! - Grimind isn't an easy game, so you can forget about just holding one key and passing through the levels. Besides dexterity and input skills, there are also a large number of logic puzzles to solve. Your brain will be tested and you'll not get bored.

Great news. Grimind is now available on Steam (Windows, Mac, Linux) and it comes with significant updates:
1. Player dynamics changed – I think that is the most important change. now it’s easier to move the character because it has reduced inertia.
2. Xbox 360 controller support – the game can be played with Xbox gamepad. Unfortunately I managed to implement this feature only on Windows.
3. Rebindable keyboard keys – this potentially was an issue for non qwerty keyboard users. Of course they could always play with arrow keys, but I can imagine that could be uncomfortable. Now it’s fixed.
4. Puzzles are now slightly changed to be more intuitive.
5. Steam achievements added.I also added possibility to purchase Grimind with Bitcoin. I will see if this is worthwhile, now I’m processing all Bitcoin payments manually. If you know better ways to accept bitcoins or automate it somehow, let me know. Check it out on www.grimind.com

Hi. I'm on Debian GNU/Linux. I had to set the executable permission on desura/common/grimind/Grimind and desura/common/grimind/x86/griming.x86, then install libsmpeg0 package so that the game runs. Running Desura demo.

Same here, had to set executable permissions manually to get it work on Debian Wheezy.

This has to be fixed by packaging the game with saving the permissions.

Not sure why so many hacks are needed, but glad you got it working. It should run right after running "Grimind" bash script in top of the game folder. Script checks if the system is 32 or 64 bit, sets path to dynamic libraries and then runs correct binary.
Thanks for report
