Legend of Grimrock Release Announced


Retro dungeon crawling RPG Legend of Grimrock will be released on April 11. Grimrock is a throwback to RPGs of a bye gone era, harkening back to games like Eye of the Beholder, Ultima Underworld, Dungeon Master and even a little bit of old school Might & Magic.

You can pre-order Legend of Grimrock now for $11.99, 20% off the list price.

I can't be the only one who read that as Grimlock, can I?

I did the same thing and I've seen the game before.

Grimrock is available on GoG too.

I haven't played a game like this since back in those days. It's very tempting for some old school gaming.

Yeah, that looks pretty good to me. Although I get this weird impression from the look of it that the enemies operate on some sort of turn-based clock, while the player acts in realtime?

Ugh I am so irritated I don't have a good pc. My tax return NEEDS to go to bills but here I am putting custom pc builds together online looking for a decent priced one.

You get a Steam key with the pre-order. I've already registered it.

Also, let this be a warning.

I've been following this one for a while and can't wait to give it a go. They have my money.

Perfect timing to, I should be about done with ME3 by then giving me about a month to spend with Grimrock before D3 gets here.

Sweet. Just pre-ordered. Interestingly, their Google Checkout uses Humble Bundle, Inc.'s name.

It releases on my B-day, which is also the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I think I should book that Thursday off.
