A short update
This morning I finally completed Legend of Grimrock. It hold my interest to the very end and took me around 15 hours to complete.The challenge was just about right. Unforgiving like most CRPGs where. There are a lots of secrets and hidden rooms in this game and I just uncovered around 60 % of these. You have to carefully pick where to spend your skill points after every level advance which makes for fun priorities. I am looking forward to a sequel to this game.
I immediately started up and continued my adventure in Anvil of Dawn which at first paled in comparison on all measurable levels but still it is a solid game and after half an hour I was back again exploring the underground city. Within the week I will probably have an update ready.
I am already thinking of which games would be next in line but I haven´t decided on anything yet. I am thinking of reviving the excellent Legend of Faerghail. I am even inclined to try out the superb Gabriel Knight II: The Beast Within, but that is not a roleplaying game so I might not blog about it. Abandoned Places 1 or 2 for the Amiga might also be considered if I can make it run smoothly using Winuae. It could also be something entirely else.
