The Legend of Grimrock Gold

Get ready for some old school, PC dungeon crawling love! The highly anticipated indie title (by us anyway) 'The Legend of Grimrock' has gone gold!

Been following this one for a while now and we don't have too much longer to wait until we can relive the glory days of games like Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Master.

For more info, a lovely gameplay trailer and some screenshots, head over this way.

Have to agree that the combat looks like it might be a major drag. The main issue to me seems like it'll be that the player will have to focus on looking at the right corner of his screen so he can click the combat maneuvers, and thus you won't really be able to enjoy the combat spectacle itself... you'll just have to keep the monster/enemy in your peripheral vision, and stare at only 1/16 of your screen the whole time. That seems like it'd be extremely annoying, and make a waste of those otherwise impressively rendered monsters and animations.

Perhaps one will be able to use keyboard shortcuts instead of the cursor to click those combat commands in the corner, but in the gameplay trailer itself it's clear the player is having to use his mouse for everything. Yuck.


Aside from that, I'm also concerned with the environments... or rather, the lack thereof. The same endlessly nondescript stone halls and torch-lit rooms will get pretty damn dull after a few hours. Perhaps there will be some variety, but the trailer shows no sign of it. Even looking at the screenshots on the website, it seems the whole game is either a.) stone corridors or b.) stone corridors with some moss on the walls. Doesn't exactly delight the imagination.

Did no one here play Eye of the Beholder or Dungeon Master? Lands of Lore?

The combat looks to be in homage of all of those titles. Even some of the enemy poses look to be deliberately close to those games.

I'm really looking forward to this one.

This looks like it's going to be sooooo dull!
