Steam version of Legend of Grimrock carries some Extras from GOG

header

If you purchase Legend of Grimrock on GOG, you get a nice offering of extras, as they do for all releases. On GOG game page, you can see what they are. So, you might be wondering what the benefits are to buying it on Steam. The only advantage Steam has at the moment is Steam Achievements (if you want them). The advantage GOG has is, as it always is – no DRM. So while digging into my Steam directory, I discovered most of the GOG extras are included with your Steam version – it is just not explicitly told to you. So hit up your Steam folder at this location for the Extras:

DRIVE:/Steam/steamapps/common/legend of grimrock/extras/

Extras:

• Art from Cinematics, Environments, and Monsters

• Photos of the Devs

• Main Menu theme (MP3)

• Additionally you get PDFs of

– Graph Paper, Manual, and World Map

Now what you don’t get in the Steam version from the GOG version is HD Wallpapers, and Avatars

Our review of the game is forthcoming.

    Thanks for the post. I was kinda mad my Paypal wouldn’t work on GOG. I got it on Steam. I should have just bought it from the LOG site and got a key. At least I have some of the extras!

    Cool, thanks very much for this! I had no idea the Steam version came with these…out of curiosity, how did you find out? Just random scrounging around the folders?

    • Yeah I typically go into the Steam folders to just learn about the file structure and maybe what engine it uses and then found that folder. Just a random encounter.
