Build a raven cage and these smart birds will be your messengers. Watch the skies. Ravens always circle over something of interest. And that which ravens take interest in will always be of interest for a lonely Exile.


A clan will increase your chances of surviving one more day in this cruel and bitter medieval world. Call your brothers in arms to cut down damned knights and bloodthirsty witches. Set your own rules in the Kingdom.

I like it but grind grind grind

Great graphics and storyline and a great feel to it. It’s clear the developers have done a great job but there’s something about the gameplay that is off. I want to like it, I keep playing it, but in the end it’s a grindfest. Your constantly just crafting minimal tools and armor to gather materials in hopes of upgrading but upgrading is so costly it’s almost not worth doing as everything wears out so quickly. To upgrade your backpack requires a high level and is relatively costly in materials and making a bow (a relatively basic weapon) is almost impossible too as you can’t craft a bowstring, you have to be lucky enough to find it. You also can’t craft a harness, saddle or trough for your horse - you need to find those too. These and other “special” items are hard to come by even if you are able to survive random events.
I was a fan of Last Day on Earth as well and reached a saturation point as well, it seems that Grim Soul grows more tedious and feels like a chore after awhile.
I understand the developers need to make this more of a challenge and you don’t want to make it too easy but something has to be done to balance out the gameplay somehow. If I’m level 65 but running around naked with 2 staffs and a pile of beef jerky because I need a week to gather materials ten something is wrong. Maybe it’s me?

Needs an update seriously!

If we could get live meters showing your status without having to open the backpack that would be nice and a status for when you’re gonna throw up there’s been too many times I’ve died because my character needed to throw up. While you’re on the battlefield if you run out of bandages you eat whatever you come by I know you’ll throw up but if I could see how close I am to doing it I won’t eat that last bit of food in the middle of a fight I’ll run. Second stop with the fake player bots they come attack me leave grab no loot and the work with the all the creatures attacking you if it was a real player we could probably team up seems impossible when all you see are killer boys that the AI makes run straight after you relentlessly. It’s annoying having to fight one but you have to fight them on top of whatever creatures are chasing you it’s not even a challenge it’s just depressing. Dying your loot disappears your hard work out the window you don’t even get looted you just sit there and rot and realize that you just wasted your time because the game is built to make you lose. Also why do we have to get to such a high level before we can get the better backpack having such low storage seemed like you just had to play it safe but when you realize how long you’re gonna have to keep going out and coming back (if you make it back) the task seems more tiring than fun especially with the energy reload time

Thank you for your review.

Unfortunately, we don't clearly understand your first issue. Could you please specify this issue more detailed? What do you mean?

The other exiles are part of the Grim Soul world too. Their main goal is to interrupt you in your adventures whatever the circumstances.

If you died on a self-updated location, for example, on any skull location or quest location, your body will disappear after death, since this location will be reset after your leaving. But if you die at locations such as ruins, event, enemies' or your stronghold you will be able to find your body there.
Note, that only last body of your character is saved. If you die again, the previous body will disappear.
You can lose your items in any skull locations. And for the first entering in these locations, you had a pop-up warning about it.

Pay to win?

This game so far seems one sided. Runs very well and the mechanics are on point but the level of difficulty is way out of balance. That’s fine and all that you lose your stuff when you die but as a beginner with limited weapons, I can only fight one mob before I have to heal so I can fight again. Let’s not forget how almost impossible it is to maintain a source of food to heal because of this. I’ve had to run around and collect berries just to heal so I can continue to play and wait until the next day so I could get the holiday cake to heal to full health. Why make bandages available only at level 15? This seems odd as a basic bandage should be available right at level one so we can keep playing for more than 15 minutes at a time. All this goes to my title “pay to win.” You got to buy weapons and gear to be able to play... but don’t die or you’ve potentially lost your spendings.

Please lower the difficulty just a little bit but not too much so that it’s too easy. Just give us a way to be able to heal on a more consistent basis so we can keep exploring. I’m level 15 now and still using the basic club, it’s still better than what I can craft based on my dps and the dps of the mob, this needs fixed for sure. It’s also quite quite annoying that it takes a stack of 20 wood to make 5-7 steaks (forgot the exact number) and it also takes forever to cook!!

5 stars for giving us what I’ve mentioned.

Invest to boost your character development or building your own strategy without investments is your choice. You can freely play by your own decision.
The main purpose of the game is surviving. In order to survive, you should adaptive to the world.
That's why some things are not available at the beginning of the game.
Thank you for your suggestion, we hope your opinion about Grim Soul will get better.
