A title that has made several of our Top 10 of 2012 lists and categories, Legend of Grimrock, has apparently sold well, really well. According to a post on Almost Human’s blog this morning, the game sold more than 600,000 copies in 2012 securing the future of the company for many years to come. For a small developer to pull in those kind of sales with a game in an antiquated genre really is the definition of success.
With a thriving community creating content using the new level editor on steamworks and an incredibly active forum, Legend of Grimrock has proven the Dungeon Crawler genre is far from dead. With this continued success, Almost Human has also teased some additional content in the Legend of Grimrock Engine. The extent of the new content has not been announced, but they have shown off a few screens (which I’ve included in the gallery below) that show us some new things:
- New Dungeon Environments
- New Enemies
- New Items
- New Portraits
- New Races
With Legend of Grimrock still firm in my mind as one of the great games that I played in 2012, the cash couldn’t fly out of my wallet faster. Take my money Almost Human, take all my money; you deserve it.
