So, Legend of Grimrock 2, the sequel to Almost Human's dungeon crawling indie hit, was released this evening. The original Legend of Grimrock, released two and a half years ago back in April 2012, turned out to be an early precursor to the great RPG retro revival of our times. With all the great games coming out these days, for a while there it was easy to believe that poor, simple Legend of Grimrock would fall by the wayside and be forgotten. But it doesn't look like that's going to happen. The guys at Almost Human resisted the temptation to churn out a quick slam-dunk sequel, which they could have easily done. Instead, they spent the time and produced a bigger, better, more impressive game, capable of holding its own in today's more competitive oldschool RPG arena. And for that they should be applauded. Here's Grimrock 2's official description from its Steam page:

Legend of Grimrock 2 is a dungeon crawling role playing game with a modern execution but an oldschool heart. A group of four prisoners have shipwrecked on the secluded Isle of Nex. The island is filled with ancient crumbled ruins, mysterious shrines and a vast underground network of dungeons and mines. If the prisoners wish to make it out alive, they have to overcome the challenges devised by the ominous mastermind of the island.

Powers of perception and logic are more important than sheer force is, since Legend of Grimrock 2 puts a heavy emphasis on exploration, survival and challenging puzzles. Discover powerful ancient artifacts from hidden secret chambers and buried treasures. Arm your champions, cast spells and craft enchanted potions and bombs to aid you in fighting the dreadful monsters in highly tactical real-time combat.

Design, share and play custom scenarios with the included Dungeon Editor! Create your own adventures and fill them with puzzles, traps, or even totally new items, monsters and environments with custom graphics and audio!
