About The New Project

Up until now information and news about our new project have been quite scarce and we apologize for that. The reason for the silence is that we have been uncertain what the new project actually is. Making the ports to other platforms and updating Legend of Grimrock on multiple platforms has taken a lot of time so focusing 100% on the new project has been impossible.

Earlier we have mentioned that we are working on a “Grimrock related project” and internally we have talked about the project being a DLC for Grimrock. But creating a DLC for Grimrock doesn’t really ring true to us…

So, today we had a massive all day meeting where we discussed the project, drew some arcane patterns on the whiteboard, analyzed the project from many different angles and most importantly listened to our hearts for the answer to the big question: What we really want to accomplish with the new project?

In the meeting we nailed a couple of major things down. Writing about all of them in this post would be too much (and we don’t want to spoil all the secrets!), so I’ll just talk about the most important things now and leave the rest for later.

First, we’d really like to get back to posting regular development updates. More specifically, we’d like to be able to talk openly and honestly about the cool things happening here at the office, just like we did when we were working on Legend of Grimrock. The problem is that it’s hard to talk about the things we’re doing if we don’t know for sure what the end result will be, if it’s going to be a DLC or something else.

Secondly, and this is a biggie (probably more to ourselves than you!), we are now officially working on… Legend of Grimrock 2! Creating a mere DLC or expansion to Grimrock simply would not have felt right. As today’s meeting proved, we still have a lot of ideas we’d like to explore, lots and lots of new content already done (originally made for a DLC/expansion) and a big engine update in the works. Simply put, a DLC would have limited too much what we can do. With a full blown sequel we can raise Grimrock to the next level.

I’m sure you had all this figured out for a while already, but announcing a project is something we don’t take lightly, so we had to be really sure that this is the thing we want to blow our hearts and souls into.

So, the cat is out of the bag, and this post is already getting quite long. I’ll leave the details to the development updates that we’re going to start posting again as the work progresses. Oh, there’s so much to tell…

Exciting times ahead!

    Great to hear! I hope you will maintain the quality development we all love and the Eye of the Beholder -esk type of game.

  2. Claudio says:

    Fantastic news!!! Any hint of platforms and release window??
    Just can’t wait!!

  3. Rasmus Ollila says:

    Wow this is awesome news! I played Legend of Grimrock (expect that final level) and it was and is one of the best games ever and I really enjoyed playing it! Scary but still a lot of fun, Keep doing great work!

  4. ganimoth says:

  7. jwdenzel says:

    Congratulations and good luck. I’m a big fan of the original. You guys really honored the old school feeling while bringing genuinely cool graphics and ambiance.

  8. Kevin says:

    What platforms are you guys planning to release it for?

  9. GuitarAnthony says:

    I loved the first game. It brought back so many warm and squishy Dungeon Master/Black Crypt/Eye Of The Beholder on the Commodore Amiga memories. You guys did it right and I look forward to the sequel.

  10. lordgarth says:

    Hello

    I was wondering if you guys plan on making other types of games with a good editor to go along with it. Like a overhead view strategy game or a side scroller or a free movement first person view like Kings Field.

    Thx,

    LordGarth

  11. siteuntitled says:

    Please make this one have full support for gamepads for Steam BPM!

  12. Jack Dandy says:

    I loved following your original project, and no doubt, I’ll enjoy following this one as well.

  13. eoughu says:

    I wanna see multiplayer and controller support : )

  14. Alazavrus says:

    Great announcement, you guys are doing a phenomenal job! Also, can we have some kind of very-long-not-story-related-sequence-with-randomly-generated-levels like most roguelikes, please-please?

  15. MrSpud says:

    Is Almost Human considering other platforms for future development? Is it something that came up during the meeting?

  16. biogoo says:

    Please, dont make it too easy:)

  17. krayzkrok says:

    Any chance this will be backwards compatible with levels created in the Dungeon Editor? Or are you completely starting from scratch with the way the game and levels are built?

  18. greatsyl says:

    “we are now officially working on… Legend of Grimrock 2!” … YYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. laguu says:

    Backwards compatibility with custom maps would be nice. It would be great to have an existing library of custom maps (and map editor) at release. Good luck and work hard!

  20. liamdawe says:

    Will it be on Linux as well?

  21. Gamer says:

    Great to know this!
    What about boxed game including first Grimrock when it´s done?
    I think many players could appreciate this step very much.

  22. j.wordsworth says:

    Very exciting news. I can’t wait to play through another official Grimrock dungeon. I hope there will be a Dungeon Editor for the modding community too! :)

  23. Axi0maT says:

    Give it on console! Then can think about next part of Legend of Grimrock…

  24. Father Karras says:

    Congratulations!

    Can´t wait for second one :)

  25. Potholepete says:

    :) Thank you! Best game all categories in 2012 in my opinion. First time in a long time that I have been so excited about a sequel! Can´t wait to see the progress!

  26. Jayden Hawke says:

    Alas! My first born son did not give his life in vain.
