After once again having stripped another missive of seven thousand ill-placed ellipses, John’s dad’s latest diary in the dungeons of Grimrock is here. And now, after a freedom of information request has made private emails available, you can learn John’s pain.>
Oh, the terrible weight of expectation. How can I possibly live up to or surpass the gimmick in my last Legend of Grimrock post? Well, unless I somehow created an HTML maze that you had to solve in order to find the details about the new Grimrock patch now being out and containing some unexpected bonus goodies, I just can’t. So I’m just going to end this post right here instead. See you!
In the second part of my dad’s adventures in Legend Of Grimrock (you can read part one here) we learn why my dad never goes anywhere in games and takes three million years to finish them. We also learn that he’s putting off writing about the bit where he got stuck and had to have me do it for him. To the dungeons!>
Happiness is a cold, dank dungeon filled with traps, giant poisonous spiders and not enough food. Legend of Grimrock has proved to be a welcome and surprisingly modern-feeling bearhug from dungeoneering’s past, and as well as being such a source of joy for old men like me it’s also proven profitable for devs Almost Human. “The development costs of the game have now been covered many times over so the future of the company seems pretty secure,” they claim happily in a new bloggington, which hopefully also bodes well for the future of the game. It’s the sort of thing that could potentially make the very best of a big fat synringe full of extra content. First things first though, a new patch for some of the issues in the launch version is incoming. Hidden somewhere in this post is a switch you must find and activate in order to continue reading.
