Legend of Grimrock is a first-person dungeon crawler made by a small team of industry vets. If that sentence alone doesn’t get you all riled up, I’d recommend checking out the embedded trailer. If you’re still not dancing around the room then perhaps indie first-person tile-based RPGs aren’t your thing. And that’s fine. Really! I totally get it. Some people can’t handle the strategic and punishing battles that they’ll encounter.
Us brave ones can spend some time over at the official site and slowly drink in all of the information on the game. The most recent news is that the game has gone gold and is finished. The launch details for the PC version will be revealed next week, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be done working! As they put it: “…we don’t think it’s the end of the road, more like a fork in the road with ways branching into all sorts of interesting directions: iOS, Mac, map editor, sequel, new IP, living in a dumpster totally broke…”
After spending so much time with Dungeons of Dredmor and Binding of Isaac, I can only welcome Legend of Grimrock into my inevitable-death embracing soul.
