Phew, it took quite a while but finally it’s here: the Linux version of Legend of Grimrock is on Steam! This means that Steam now carries all the versions of the game: PC, Mac and Linux.

The standalone Linux version of the game has also now been updated to version 1.3.7 which eliminates a few annoying bugs. Most importantly text input and mouse look troubles have been fixed as well as the issue some users have had where they have been unable to export custom dungeons. You can get the update for the standalone version by redownloading the game from the link that was emailed to you when you purchased the game from Humble Bundle or from our store. If you’ve lost the email with the details, you can get it resent but you can of course also email us as well if you need any assistance.

In other news, the development of Grimrock 2 continues! Monsters have been learning some new maneuvers and we’ve also done some work on how items, especially weapons, work and right now as I’m writing this, the guys sitting on the sofas behind my back are thinking about how to do the intro and other cinematics. We have also selected a good artist for the portrait freelancing gig we posted about a while earlier. And boy, the blog post was really effective: we got 234 applications in our inbox from artists all over the world and I’d like to thank all the applicants. I’m sure Juho, who had to sort through all the mails and portfolios himself, is equally thankful! ;)

 

Finally the day has come and we can reveal our super-secret plans! This is what we all have been waiting for so let’s dive straight into the interesting bits!

Legend of Grimrock will be released for PC through Steam, GOG.com and our own website on April 11th for $14.99. With these options everybody should be happy, whether you like to play on Steam, prefer a standalone version, or support the development of Grimrock and our future projects by buying directly from us.

We have been working extra hard for the past months, and this point can’t be stressed enough, we couldn’t have done this without the support from you guys! As a thankyou we have something special in store for you. That’s right, we are launching preorders TODAY for only $11.99 – that’s 20% off from the retail price! Pre-orderers get instant access to game’s goodies including a beautifully crafted game manual, Legend of Grimrock world map, custom made grid paper to print out for all your mapping needs, Grimrock theme music, wallpapers, team photo and art sheets illustrating foul creatures of Mount Grimrock.

Let the party begin and go spread that word! :-)

 

Time seems to pass abnormally fast when you’re working hard on a project and certainly this has been the case in March for us. But hey, thanks to the leap day we got at least one extra working day! :) We are certainly now starting to feel the pressure of the fast approaching release date which on one hand feels a really joyful moment but at the same time it’s a bit frightening because we have to stop polishing and adding cool stuff to the game we have learned to love so much. Legend of Grimrock is certainly a lot more personal project to us than other games we have worked on in the past and therefore it’s a bit sad to finally let our baby go out to the big world.
