Legend Of Grimrock is one of my favorite games released over the last couple of years, and hands-down the best from an indie developer. People call it "the game that revived the dungeon-crawling genre", and this couldn't be more accurate in my case.
I grew up playing Lands Of Lore: The Throne Of Chaos. A similar, two dimensional, tile-sliding real time fantasy rpg. Nothing could top it, and Grimrock brought me something I had always hoped for: a modern re-imagining of this style of game.
Having played through the regular game twice, and trying out a number of the great user-created content packs, this game has almost everything I'd want. A great variety of gameplay challenges and obstacles, gorgeous graphics, captivating atmosphere and story, tons of danger. Plenty of challenge is present, as well as an easy means of scaling difficulty to one's personal preference. Additionally, the custom dungeon workshop has provided an easy way for creative fans to build using the game's engine very easily and intuitively. There are some mods that even top the core game itself!
While I recognize that Grimrock's appeal is somewhat niche, those who aren't addicted to first-person games, have patience for difficult combat, and enjoy the challenge of a dungeon delve with many survival elements like light sources, food management, and mapping your environment will undoubtedly find this interesting, if not fantastic. The only criticism I can think of is wishing for character voicing and enlarging the world/taking the game outside of a subterranean environment at least some of the time.
Thankfully, Grimrock 2 is being released in...ten minutes as of writing this, and promises to do the latter.
This game is a modern classic and will always be on the tip of my tongue. It's a thrilling and refreshing experience in the world of modern gaming. I challenge you to take your first step...
