Quickie Friday update

May 4, 2012|

Wow, it seems like the Friday was here much quicker than usual! Quite possibly because on Tuesday we had the pagan festival called Vappu, or May Day, here in Finland. It’s a pretty, ahem, colorful event when folks tend to flock to parks and other public spaces to consume a non-trivial amount of alcohol. Pagan holidays are the best! 🙂

Anyways, it’s been another week with a lot of miscellaneous things going on right now. We’ve been answering interviews, developing the level editor and a bunch of other crazy things. The level editor is progressing at a good pace and it’s looking pretty solid. One of our primary goals was to make a level editor that we ourselves would be happy to use and it’s very promising in that regard already. We’ve had to revisit and rethink some of our old ideas and code since we didn’t have a proper level editor ourselves during the development of the game but despite the extra work it’ll definitely be worth it in the end! Oh, and one more highlight that’s most definitely worth mentioning is that Legend of Grimrock was the overall most sold game on Steam for its first two weeks. That’s pretty awesome!! A big thank you to all of you again!

This update will be left pretty short and sweet since I didn’t even remember it was Friday until just a few minutes ago and the sunny weather looks pretty tempting after spending so much time in the dungeons of Grimrock! So, have a mighty fine weekend everyone! 😀

    Next game title should be “Song of the Pagan” with plenty of booze in-game.

    Anyway I’m glad that it sold so well, have a nice weekend almosthuman 😉

    Well, I had to check the box since I was “Almost Human”, so that counts, right? 🙂

    Anyway, keep up the great work. Each day without a new dungeon to play is like… you don’t want to know, but it could be compared to a room full of 10 spiders and no way out.

  11. Have you done any video-interviews that are on YouTube?

    You rock I actually bought game on Steam I can’t believe it:))
    My only gripe with the game is overly simplistic skill and magic system, everything else is very cool.

    I was curious on how complicated the editor will be as I would like to be able to use it without having to know all of the technical stuff which I find very confusing. If it does require some knowledge of making games I’m sure I can something on the internet.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I¡¯m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I¡¯m thinking about setting up my own but I¡¯m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
