After a major discussion in the Almost Human Ltd, project that took off as a Legend of Grimrock DLC has been transformed into a full-fledged sequel. Reasons for that explained in the studio’s newest blog entry:
„Creating a mere DLC or expansion to Grimrock simply would not have felt right. As today’s meeting proved, we still have a lot of ideas we’d like to explore, lots and lots of new content already done (originally made for a DLC/expansion) and a big engine update in the works. Simply put, a DLC would have limited too much what we can do. With a full blown sequel we can raise Grimrock to the next level.”
The developer also promised to deliver further information soon in regular development uptades depicting work in progress.
The original Legend of Grimrock was a successful return to the old school dungeon crawler-type games, with a modern take on graphics. Despite being full of retro elements like complex level-design, hidden passages and ubiquitous traps gained praise of critics and gamers alike scoring 82 on metacritic and selling over 600.000 copies.
