Rpg name?

This is a bit vague, but does anyone remember the name of the eob type rpg that was in development and in the forums a couple months back? I think it was being done by some indie developer. I was just curious to see how far along it has gotten.

edit : found it it's legend of grimrock due out next month.

On a semi-related note, there's also this: http://tom.kot-in-action.com/about.html

Past that, there is also http://www.msoa-game.com/ , Sword of Ahkranox, a game I interviewed the developers for. It's going to be a single player EOB style game, turn based too!

I read a description of all the procedural content they're gonna have, that sounds amazing! As a fan of Inside a Star-Filled Sky one can tell I am also a huge fan of procedural generation - ever since Spore.

Ah, I wondered if it was a reference to Eye of the Beholder, but I wasn't sure.

Would Ultima Underworld fit into that same mold? Wizardry?

I generally referred to those as 1st-person dungeon crawlers with real-time and turn-based categories.

But I do love my categories...
