Legend of Grimrock 2 now in beta, iOS port of first game shown

Almost Human's island-based dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock 2 is now in a closed beta, the developer announced today, and in the hands of a select group of players.

Legend of Grimrock 2 is somewhat larger than its predecessor, Almost Human co-founders Juho Salila and Petri Häkkinen said in an update — about 25 percent larger. And although the game has been playable from beginning to end for some time, they say, there's still plenty of work to be done to polish and improve upon the game.

The developer didn't provide an updated release window for the game, but did provide the above teaser trailer for Legend of Grimrock 2.

Almost Human also showed off a shot of the iOS version of the original Legend of Grimrock running on an iPad.

"A friend of us and a coder extraordinaire, Juha Pinola has now been working on the iOS version of Legend of Grimrock 1 for some time and the game is shaping up really well," the developer said. "We do not know the release date just yet other than 'when it's done' but we'll let you know when we know, ok? The game isn't just a direct port from the PC version of Legend of Grimrock. We have always felt that the game wouldn't work on touch screens straight out of the box but needed a few custom mechanics to get the benefits of the touch interface."

Almost Human announced Legend of Grimrock 2 last year, saying it was repurposing planned downloadable content for the original game for a "full blown sequel."
