Ratings and Reviews
Interesting game yet with slow development
The game is addicting, a lot of the gaming process was well thought. However, the game requires patience from both the gamers and developers. The game takes very long to develop over time, it doesn’t even have multiplayer yet and I understand the Pandora affect of open multiplayer if the game single mode hasn’t perfected yet. Very good gaming mechanism, however there are imbalances in the economy with certain materials’ productions such as the linens for armors that broke too often. The durabilities of the item were depending on hits regardless of how much the monster hits(i.e the flapping from a leper is the same as crushing blow from a damned Templar on you armor). The game needs money to develop and I am a frequent customer, I hope the developers will continue to listen to its players/customers to make this game a mutual benefits between them.
For all that are having difficulties at this game, the key of surviving and fun is to be frequency, intensity and time. How frequent do you produce your items? How much effort are you try to save materials and not squandering them on the wrong time and location? How much time have you calculated as far as each farming trip to your production time? It’s all about managing, micro and macro.
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?

Kefir’s greediest game
I’ve been playing LDOE since it was released, and although I faced issues with bugs more times than I can count, the gameplay is great and I’m completely addicted. Yes, you have to grind, but the more you do, the more you gain. Grim Soul is a great concept with horrible, greedy developers. I’ve been playing it since it came out, but not nearly as often as LDOE, and I’ll explain why. I’m level 45 with a level 6 castle and have supported the game through numerous purchases. They charge way too much for items, which you’ll lose on even the 1 skull areas. I’ve bought backpacks, clothes, weapons, and food, and then go to an easy area fully equipped, then they spawn AI’s or the Night Guest when you’re low on health or in your inbox. It seems like it’s constantly night and every single dollar I’ve spent on the game has been a waste. By level 45, I should have a base full of armor and weapons but I just have disappointment and frustration. Kefir should sell LDOE and Grim Soul to a company who actually cares about their consumers. I won’t spend another dollar on either game unless they adjust the balance on Grim Soul (I’m level 99 with tons of stuff on LDOE so don’t need to anyways). Of course I’ll get some response that doesn’t address anything I’ve mentioned like most reviews. Long story short, it’s a good game, but don’t spend a dime and don’t expect to have fun playing it.

We're really sorry to hear such reviews and opinion about us or our game. We will hope that you will change your opinion in the future.
We are a separate team that developing only Grim Soul.
We are dedicated to developing our game on in its own, unique course. We will continue to realize game mechanics and ideas that cannot be realized in the Last Day universe. We focused on the story, on the grim atmosphere, and creating a game with a relatively high level of difficulty.
Nevertheless, we don't force our players to invest in the characters. Invest to boost your character development or building your own strategy without investments is your choice. You can freely play by your own decision.
