Legend of Grimrock review: The depths of memory

Every design decision recalls elements of Might & Magic, Dungeon Master, and Wizardry. The inspiration is obvious looking at the two PDFs included with the game: a lengthy, lore-laden manual of the variety that no one makes in 2012, and Grimrock-themed graph paper with which particularly hardcore players can map out the dungeon by hand. Anyone without a fondness for classic CRPGs will be hard-pressed to see the appeal in Grimrock's old-school focus. I have that affection. As a kid, I spent hundreds of hours mapping out every corner of Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra. I put up with confusing quests and strange, seemingly hateful game mechanics, happy to be pulled into its vast fantasy world. But despite my sentimental memories of the games I grew up with, Legend of Grimrock...

Legend of Grimrock DLC being repurposed for fully-fledged sequel

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...


Legend of Grimrock has sold more than 600,000 copies, say creators

PC gamers have snapped up more than 600,000 copies of Legend of Grimrock, the dungeon crawler role-playing game released by Almost Human in 2012. Thanks to that higher-than-expected figure, "the future of our company is secured for a long time," says the game's developer. "We would've been happy with just one tenth of the sales numbers, so needless to say we're very happy," writes Almost Human co-founder Juho Salila on the company's blog. "But great success doesn't mean we haven't lost our passion for making great games," Salila writes, offering a peek at what's in the works for Legend of Grimrock. The Finnish developer released the Windows version of Legend of Grimrock last April and released Mac and Linux ports late last year alongside Humble Indie Bundle 7.
