A new old-school CRPG will be released tomorrow


Thanks to Amy K @ rpgchick.blogspot.com I was told of a new release tomorrow of an old-school RPG much like Dungeon Master but done with todays graphical standard, yet trying to keep the charm of the oldies. The game is called Legend of Grimrock and is developed by a finnish team called Almost Human.

What is it then ?  From their own website they say:
  • Old-school dungeon crawling game inspired by Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder and Ultima Underworld.
  • Explore a vast dungeon riddled with hidden switches, pressure plates, sliding walls, trapdoors and more.
  • Discover secrets, cast spells with runes and craft potions with herbs.
  • Fight murderous monsters and seek lost artifacts in ancient tombs.
  • Create a party of four characters and customize them with different races, classes, skills and traits.
Check out the official trailer below.


Needless to say, the game cost only 12 dollar at http://www.gog.com so I ordered it today. Every effort to try to get hold of the charm of the classical CRPGs should be encouraged, especially from small companies like this. At least if the game is any good. Pre-reviews has given it good ratings so expect to hear more of this game from me in a further post..

  1. I have to admit it does look pretty interesting.
    I'll have to see if I can come up with the $12. When you're getting ready to retire and move at the same time, every dollar counts.
    But I'd like to support them, definitely.
    Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Wow, those TV and films telling how rich Americans and how good life they have are probably lie. Even poorest person in Russia wouldnt mind 12 US dollars for good game.
    Talk about american propaganda.

    2. Americans? Rich? Hahahahaha! Go visit Detroit. Do other countries not know of the recession over here?

      Thanks for all the mentions, Saintus. I'm glad you're enjoying the game. I'm really glad that it's been made, and that people are liking it. Hopefully that will encourage others to make more games like this.
