Grim Trigger is a webcomic/point-and-click game hybrid about a resistance movement in an alternate universe. The series is made in flash and has interactive elements as well as music and animations.

The series follows 14-year old protagonist Tage Dormon as he tries to figure out the mysteries surrounding the Death armor sets. Meanwhile, a deranged, self-proclaimed emperor is convinced that he is the grim reaper, and is forcefully converting notable figures to his cause.

Grim Trigger is character driven, and is inspired by religion, history, and ancient politics.

This series contains examples of:

  • Clothes Make the Superman: Most of the “armor” set pieces are just clothing articles (or weapons)
  • Evolving Credits: The end credits change with every new arc
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: In book 5, when Hunter exclaims that he's the only one that can hurt Tage
  • Jerk Jock: Hunter is introduced as one, but he becomes more of a Lovable Jock as his character develops
  • National Anthem: The menu at the beginning of each book plays Deșteaptă-te, române!
  • Military Coup: How Valamar overthrows the Grey Prince in book 4
  • Story Arc: Each volume is split up into different arcs, and each arc has its own title sequence that plays in the beginning of every book
