    I always thought it would be fun to start an unfounded rumor.

    I hear they have the rights to the Eye of the Beholder trademark!

    Announcing Grimrock 3 now would be a great prank.

    I don't hink they'd need 6 months of prototyping for a LoG 3.

    Yeah, I had suspected for quite a while that their next project wouldn't be Legend of Grimrock 3.

    I don't blame them, only one game series based on the same formula as Grimrock has ever made a third chapter... and look at it. Fucking look at it. Eye of the Beholder 3 is a piece of crap. It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that they looked elsewhere for their next project.

    Unless... unless they decided to skip Eye of the Beholder 3 completely and go straight to the next game... Dungeon Hack.

    Could it be? Can one dare to dream?

    It's understandable it won't be Legend of Grimrock 3. Legend of Grimrock 2 had about quarter of Grimrock 1 players.

    No shit. I didn't know that. I thought it was a success.

    400-something k copies is a success for an indie studio, just not as huge as the first game was.
    They remain self-funded and take time to develop a new engine after all, and that being based in one of the more expensive parts of the world.
    Compare that to Banner Saga for example - 700k copies for the first game, less than 100k for the second.

    Strictly speaking, Ishar did too. LoL as well, although the formula changed with each iteration.
    Somewhat less strictly speaking, DM 2 is more or less the third game in the series, after CSB. Also, an argument could be made that Ravenloft games and Menzoberranzan belong to the same series.

    Well, probably it was for them but certainly not as first title. I would go out on a limb and say they will completely change the theme and do sci-fi or cyberpunk crawler to start something fresh. Time will tell.

    Is there any available information about the revenue of LoG and LoG2 rather than the number of sales? Everyone cites the much larger sales of the first game as evidence of a drastic decline in the series' popularity, but this doesn't account for possible steep discounts of digital downloads. :M

    I haven't seen any profit numbers but certainly the "sales" of LoG1 are grossly inflated thanks to Humble Bundles and such.

    It would probably be interesting to see what % of people who bought the original actually finished it. If you're not invested enough in a game to finish it then you're unlikely to go for a sequel. I would imagine the hardcore fanbase that bought and finished both would buy LoG3 in droves and there wouldn't be much drop off from LoG2 to LoG3 as there was from the original to LG2. It's probably still a law of diminishing returns issue though so it probably makes sense not to put all of their eggs in one basket.

    Not really into roguealikes myself, but happy to keep an open mind.
