Crate Entertainment LLC is a small, privately owned, indie-startup founded by former Iron Lore lead designer, Arthur Bruno, who in 2009 worked out a deal for the rights to the Titan Quest engine and tools. With a commerically released ARPG engine and toolset, a very small but dedicated team of friends, mostly Iron Lore veterans, began working on a new ARPG project: Grim Dawn.
Working remotely, with only 2 full-time team members and several part-time contributors, over the next couple years this humble team was able to craft the core gameplay and environments of Grim Dawn while adding many exciting features and improvements to the already robust feature set that existed in Titan Quest.
Crate launched a Kickstarter campaign in mid 2012 to help accelerate development and, after greatly surpassing their goal, were able to bring on a team of 8 full-time, experienced developers.
Grim Dawn is now nearing release with alpha expected in the first half of 2013, with beta and the full release to follow.
