The first Legend of Grimrock holds a special place in my heart; it was the first game I ever reviewed for Polygon. And while I had some issues with it, I appreciated the devotion to old-school computer role-playing game mechanics. I was excited to see a beefed up sequel get announced.
Now that sequel is here! I recruited my coworker/fellow adventurer Charlie Hall to lead me on a tour of Legend of Grimrock 2.
In the video above, we jump into an early-game save to explore a mysterious island, dig up buried treasure and set mummies on fire.
Sidenote: In the video, Charlie and I mention how cool we think it would be to play a mobile touchscreen-supported version of Legend of Grimrock. Apparently both of us missed the news that the first game is in fact coming to iOS. Hooray!
