Let's Play Legend of Grimrock (Blind)

Platform: PC/Windows
Released: 2012
Genre: RPG
Setting: Fantasy/Dungeon Crawler
Developer: Almost Human Ltd.
Publisher: Almost Human Ltd.
Version: 1.3.6 and 1.3.7


This is a dungeon crawling role playing game with an oldschool heart but a modern execution. It brings back the oldschool challenge with highly tactical real-time combat and grid-based movement, devious hidden switches and secrets, as well as deadly traps and horrible monsters. It's the classic gameplay of Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder (among others), with today's graphics and multimedia capabilities. I'll say this right now: I am having a blast, and I love this game! Just try to watch your ears during a few surprise incidents during this Let's Play, especially if you're wearing headphones. Dungeon crawling has never been more fun.

• Amazing game! I played it twice. Once with a team and once with a solo character. My only
suggestion is to pick your magic and focus it. If you spread it around too much you won't be able to
get the higher spells. Have fun!!

• I looooooooooooove this game! The enemies look really scary!

• They really don't give you any clues as to what you are doing in this game, specifically with how magic works. I died about 6 minutes into my first Grimrock adventure after making a magic heavy party where I dumped a bunch of points into the wrong magic skill. I had a party of mages that couldn't cast any spells!

• How much did this game cost? I think I may just go out and grab it.

• that's awesome you got around to doing this game!  i have had my eye on it for awhile just hadn't
played it myself

  1. Glad to hear you're enjoying it so much. I used to spend sooo much time on games like this. I keep thinking about nabbing this when I see it come up on sale, but I'm so far behind in my other games that I just haven't made time for this one.

    1. It's definitely so worth it, if you like oldschool dungeon crawlers. This one, though, has modern AI, graphics, and sound, making it a vertitable juggernaut of non-stop fun.
