    Tags: Almost Human Games; Legend of Grimrock 2

    The official Legend of Grimrock website launched a mysterious 24 hour countdown yesterday. The countdown expired a few hours ago, revealing a fancy site redesign, and more importantly, a release date for Legend of Grimrock 2 - October 15th. Here's the new trailer they produced for the occasion. It's better than the last one!


    And a description of the game:

    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!

    Get ready to venture forth and uncover the secrets of Nex!

    Key Features:
    • Explore the wilderness and the dungeons of Isle of Nex: walk in ancient forests riddled with mysterious magical statues, fight the denizens of poison fuming swamps, dive in the Forgotten River in search of treasure, uncover secrets hidden deep below…
    • More than 20 hours of pure blooded dungeon crawling gameplay with grid-based movement and thousands of squares filled with hidden switches, pressure plates, secret doors, riddles, deadly traps and more.
    • Cast spells with runes, craft potions and bombs, fight murderous monsters with a large variety of melee-, ranged and thrown weapons, as well as firearms.
    • Create a party of four characters and customize them with 7 character classes, 5 races, and numerous skills and traits. Collect experience to hone their skills and discover improved equipment and magical artefacts.
    • 42 different kind of monsters including 30 new foes unique to Isle of Nex.
    • Play custom adventures created by others or make your own with Dungeon Editor.
    • More depth, variety and open ended exploration than in Legend of Grimrock 1. Enhanced AI, spell casting, puzzle mechanics and skill systems.
    As you might have guessed from the trailer's name, the game is now available for pre-order directly from Almost Human. The final price will be $24, but for the next 28 days at least the game will be available at a 15% discount. Steam keys included!

    Despite my misgivings about the game taking place outdoors and their ability to design proper combat I have pre ordered this, because I liked the original's puzzles so much. If this is going to be another Legend of Skullkeep I am going to Breivik Finland.

    I will be interested in this when I finish the first one, which could be never, seeing as I did not touch it after reaching 6th level of the dungeon or so. Do not really remember. Not that it is a bad game, but as a storyfag, I can only find so much enjoyment in dugeon crawling without any narrative context, and the sparse dream sequences did little to sustain my interest. Real-time combat did not help the case either.

    Possible D1P. It is funny, though, how the retail price and 'discount' is constructed to effectively make it a $20 pricepoint which I'm sure was there intention all along. Just makes people feel better to think they're getting a discount.

    Any word on the space-based game based on the LoG engine? Space Shock (was that the name)? Can't find shit on it anywhere.
