In the style of the classic RPG, Dungeon Master, comes Legend of Grimrock 2, the sequel to the 2012 surprise return of dungeon crawlers. This game does little to deviate from the throwback gameplay that it wears on it’s sleeve, or play differently than the original. These are both great things. This is a standout title that defines what a dungeon crawler truly is, and how sequels should be – bigger and better.
Legend of Grimrock, the acclaimed RPG from Almost Human, is just $7.49 until Wednesday, July 11 at 5:59 AM EDT. That’s less than two days to get one of the best dungeon crawlers ever for half its regular price… and on GOG, it’s always DRM-free and packed with extras like music, wallpapers, artwork and more.
On the fence? Read our review of the game. Unfortunately, this sale does not extend to the Steam version of the game.
“It’s smart, devious, and always rewarding to play. I always found myself pausing the game in celebration for tricking an enemy into a trap or by uncovering one of the game’s many secrets.” – Me
If you’re looking for a modern day game with old school gameplay, then go no further than Legend of Grimrock.
Flying your airship near Mount Grimrock, it begins to lose power and crashes, thus getting you and your crew wrongfully imprisoned – for some inexplicable reason. And by imprisoned, I mean chained together and kicked into a dark hole. Mount Grimrock’s prison is like Alcatraz. Once you are imprisoned, you are not supposed to get out. And the monsters that inhabit the dungeon of Grimrock do not want you to leave either, posing to be stiff competition for you and your band of fugitives. But quickly you escape and are left to your own devices.
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.
