Skip to comments.Old school dungeon crawler: Legend of Grimrock
Posted on 04/18/2012 7:29:22 PM PDT by Black_Shark
Hey all you old school gamers,
From posts here and there I have gathered that there are quite a few PC gamers on FR. Seeing as the average age of most FR posters is in the mid 30's to mid 40's, it would make sense that at least some of you "cut your teeth" on old school dungeon crawlers such as Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, etc.
I am here to tell you of a brand new dungeon crawler produced by Almost Human, a finnish studio. It has all the old school feel with modern graphics and was 8.5/10 by IGN and has excellent reviews from other sites as well. I have been enraptured with it the past few days and thought I'd share it with the community.
Oh, they are also releasing extensive modding tools for free to the community! :D
The best part? It's only $14.99.
P.S. If you don;t use/like steam you can download it from their site www.grimrock.net and click "Buy".
Edit: It is also grid-based movement. Go to the website for more info.
What is this post doing on Free Republic.
Someone’s trying to sell game software.
No. I’m not. Look at my posting history and where I’m based. I thought that maybe some of the PC gamers here might like a game that doesn’t have a huge marketing team behind it pushing it. I could care less if anyone buys it but maybe someone, like me, was interested in dungeon crawlers?
I found it by chance so I thought I would help out other gamers by giving them a heads up.
Are there any “Ping Lists” for RPG fans?

Cast a “evict current resident” spell!
:D Zork is before my time! haha
Open the mail box...
What bothers me more is that, if the post is to be believed, I am way older than the average FR poster.
Not that I am aware of. I thought the same thing when I posted this!
If there is, let me know. I too have saved many a princess over the years ;)
I took an educated estimate based on my 7 year experience with FReepers! I am most likely off by at least 1 standard deviation...
Just curious, but where did you find at the demographic info to assess age ranges of FReepers?
Educated guess based on 7 years of FReeping exp. I have no quantitative data to back my guess up either. Call it gut.
If you are carrying a lantern then you probably are:)
