An update posted on the official Grimrock site has confirmed the exciting news that the grid-based dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock will be getting a full sequel. Originally, the plan seems to have been to develop DLC for the original game, but that has expanded into a full-length release.
“Creating a DLC for Grimrock doesn’t really ring true to us,” the team say. “So, today we had a massive all day meeting where we discussed the project, drew some arcane patterns on the whiteboard, analyzed the project from many different angles and most importantly listened to our hearts.”
The upshot of that was a decision to make Legend of Grimrock 2, with an updated engine and some of the content that had been planned as a DLC.
Development updates will be posted as the project progresses.
