That’s the news left on a dank, scrawled note for us by now-seasoned indies Almost Human. It transpires that contemporary Dungeon Master clone Legend of Grimrock sold loads, as well it should have - spending two weeks at the top of Steam’s charts, to the tune of 600,000 copies.
“We would’ve been happy with just one tenth of the sales numbers, so needless to say we’re very happy and the future of our company is secured for a long time,” say the Almosts. Wonderful.
So what’s next? Something new but somewhat familiar, from the looks of it.
Almost Human have seen fit to bless us with a couple of screenshots from their new project, which a second’s glance will reveal makes use of Grimrock’s superb existing engine.
It might be sequel; it might be expansion. Either way, gorgeous new tilesets are in order now we’re free of the original Grimrock’s towering prison. I’d wager the first is a mineshaft of some sort, and the second a tomb. What do you reckon?
RPS’s Alec Meer must have impeccable eyesight, because he’s also noticed some funny looking faces in the party corner of the UI. Not least a big old rat, wielding something you might see in the hand of Splinter off of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
Lovely. Rat people. We good with that?
