Legend of Grimrock making money, patching soon

Delicious old school dungeon-crawler Legend of Grimrock is making some fat cheddar, with developer Almost Human declaring that it’s covered its development costs several times over. The studio says its future is “pretty secure” thanks to everybody’s support on Steam and GOG

The game will soon be receiving its first patch, fixing some bugs, correcting a few typos, and improving a few options. Full details can be read below. 

I’m thrilled to see Grimrock doing so well. Not only because it’s an utterly brilliant game, but because every time a single-player, old school, life-absorbing RPG succeeds with the right price point and the perfect delivery method, I feel like the games industry is going to be okay.
