Old school RPG
I played "The Dark Heart of Uukrul" and "Bloodwych" in the late 80s, and "Legend of Grimrock" is the true heir of those old school RPGs.

Great work, devs :D

It's actually an EXACT copy of a apple IIgs game called dungeon master.
Only thing that's updated is the graphics. no originality in this at all.

so the level design, sound assets, skills, story, monster design, UI and Item stats/names(to look at a few things) are all identical to Dungeon Master? If you say so.

EDIT: They belong in the same genre. Games in a same genre have a lot of stuff in common. Also games in the same genre often borrow some systems from each other, here mainly how the magic and equipment stuff works.

Well, nothing new in the 'dungeon-crawling' genre. I have been playing pen & paper RPGs since 12 and I'm having a blast with this game.

I guess if you want to get more technical, Dungeon Master originally came out on the Atari ST, but Legend of Grimrock is definitely NOT an exact copy.

As already mentioned, everything is different except that you move around in a dungeon and you can pick up objects and throw things, and kill stuff.

This also has a full on editor so you can create your own 'Dungeon Master.'

This genre is a dying breed, it's awesome that these guys are bringing it back, AND with a native Linux version! I just hope the Linux version pops up on the Steam client soon, since I'd much rather do all my gaming there, and the Steam Workshop would be nice to have with it.

dungeon crawl stone soup is quite popular, and better in every way except no 3d graphics. It's interface is amazing.

I'don't remeber games form the eighties being so completely dependent on trap doors and split second timeing. But honestly my favorites from that era were true turn based like the AD&D gold box games from SSi.
