Legend of Grimrock 2, a sequel to Almost Human's first-person dungeon diving game for Windows PC and Mac, is in development, the title's creators announced today.
The announcement comes after a long period of silence for the studio, which a post on Almost Human's blog explains came from an uncertainty of what the team was going to do next. A DLC expansion to the original was the first plan the developer was going to go with, but ultimately decided they would be constrained by the limitations of the first title, and would prefer to move on to a new game altogether.
"Creating a mere DLC or expansion to Grimrock simply would not have felt right," the blog post reads. "As today's meeting proved, we still have a lot of ideas we'd like to explore, lots and lots of new content already done (originally made for a DLC/expansion) and a big engine update in the works. Simply put, a DLC would have limited too much what we can do. With a full blown sequel we can raise Grimrock to the next level."
No details about the sequel were released, but the blog post promises more details will surface in the coming weeks.
