Current Projects and Status

Updated July 21, 2024

After several delays, the Arnika-Trynton Road map for Wizardry 8 has been completed, as well as the Collectables and Walkthrough for Murder in the Alps: Forgotten Momento. Since the next chapter in Murder in the Alps has already been released, I will focus on Murder in the Alps until that one is completed before continuing with Wizardry 8.

Be sure to follow me on the Blue Sky Social App and on Threads, where you can learn of updates as they happen instead of on a monthly(ish) basis.

Once Murder in the Alps is completed/caught up, I will redo the earlier chapters since they are not mobile-friendly, add an achievements section, and update some of the other guides to be more mobile-friendly before picking up another game. As Murder in the Alps is still being updated, any new chapters will take priority above everything else.

The Wizardry 8 guide is being worked on slowly, focusing on the maps first and slowly creating an in-depth walkthrough. I expect a very long road before the guide is finished for this massive game.

About CrimsonTear.com

The name CrimsonTear [pronounced '  krimzənˌ  ter] can mean many things to the world, especially when incorrectly pronounced. I chose the name when imagining a phoenix rising quickly from the ashes leaving a fire-bordered tear in reality, which exposes a new world behind it. You can also think of it as tearing through a game, leaving only a fire trail behind, since that is what our guides help gamers do.

While others strive to make as many game guides or walkthroughs as possible, I focus on quality. Expect high-quality game guides providing details, tips and information that we find helpful or entertaining. I also try not to cut corners by copying what exists already. Hence, I create maps manually, provide more valuable descriptions (when possible), and look outside the box for ways to complete tasks. I don't just want to help someone beat a game but also provide helpful ways to finish them quickly while still enjoying the experience. While I have created a few guides for console games, most of the tiles featured are available for Windows, although mobile and console versions usually exist.

This site wasn't always about game guides, though. Some archived pages include guides for TV shows, reviews and news. Back then, you could think of the name as binging something until your eyes turn red. Initially, it was a site that helped gamers emulate old console games on PCs. Back then, we were known as Nerologic, but that feels like different life at this point. While you won't see game downloads here, CrimsonTear has returned to its roots by focusing on gaming. I have no intention of returning to the source of the world's cleanest ROMs, people like Vimm can do that, but the site wouldn't be where it is now if it wasn't for the loyal fans that followed through with the changes and helped me strive to be the best game guide creators on the internet.
