The team behind fan-created live-action miniseries Fallout: Nuka Break, Wayside Creations, and indie game developers Almost Human are joining up to develop a licensed video series based on dungeon crawler role-playing game Legend of Grimrock, the companies announced today.
According to the announcement, Wayside Creations reached out to the game's creators to develop the series. The two companies will work closely together to ensure that the series remains true to Almost Human's IP. Legend of Grimrock: The Series will initially roll-out as several individual episodes followed by a feature-length release combining all previously released content.
Wayside co-founder Vincent Talenti (Fallout: Nuka Break seasons 1 & 2 and Fallout: Red Star) is slated as the series director, while Obsidian Entertainment's Chris Avellone (Fallout: New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic 2) is announced as the writer. Vic Mignogna (Full Metal Alchemist, Star Trek Continues) will appear in the new series and may also assist in its development, along with several Nuka Break cast members.
The organizers launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of Legend of Grimrock: The Series with an initial goal of $100,000.
The Windows version of Legend of Grimrock was released last April, followed by Mac and Linux ports later that year. As of January this year, more than 600,000 PC copies of Legend of Grimrock have been sold since its release. In July, the developers announced that the planned DLC expansion for the original would be re-purposed into Legend of Grimrock 2. The Finnish developer said that a full sequel would remove tech limitations and will allow them to explore the series to a greater extent.
