Legend of Grimrock rocking the charts!


And what a surprise, suddenly out of nowhere came Legend of Grimrock from Almost Human Games: a modern day dungeon crawler with an old school feeling to it. Being released by the indie company 11 Apr. 2012 Legend of Grimrock quickly climbed the Steam best sellers charts and is still present as of today. What sparked this sudden interest in old school dungeon crawles? No idea, especially not after the averageness that was Dungeon Siege 3. Perhaps it’s got something to do with the game being an indie title – developed by an independent studio – because these type of games tend to sell rather well since a while (Terraria, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Limbo etc).

The game is about a group of would-be criminals who are sentenced to a would-be death by dropping them in Mount Grimrock, a place filled with monsters and riddles. If they ever wish to live in freedom again they will need to find their way through the mountain.

Key features include grid based movement, a customizable party consisting of four characters, spellcasting, exploring and solving riddles. Oh, and there’s also an healthy amount of Steam achievements. The game has been receiving excellent reviews so far and has been recommended by over 2000 Steam players so it’s definitely worth checking out even if you’re not a fan of old school games.
