I am currently enjoying my week off, spending most of the time playing video games, watching movies and trying to wind down a bit. One video I stumbled upon today is a first look at “Legend of Grimlock”, an old-school dungeon crawler to be released on April 11th. I admit it’s not really pen & paper RPG related but I know that a lot of us played games like these a lot back in the day.
I am very pleased that there are still developers willing to develop such an old-school game. And from the looks of it, it’s marvelously executed. I can’t wait to actually play it!
I’ve been following this for some time and I’m very excited it’s finally out this month. If you, like myself, neglected sleep on a school night to crawl the murky crypts of Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder this will be like a tearful journey back in time. I cannot wait.
I’d also like to think this is a beginning of something really special coming this year. Remake of X-Com is looking strong and true to the original. Baldur’s Gate will get a special edition. Plus thanks to populist Kickstarter drives we are likely to see Wasteland 2 and more!
Nostalgia overdose is becoming a real concern 😉
Also, learned today about this:
Which may be long time away. Still it’s Jordan Weisman plus a few other ex FASA peeps so the right credentials are there, and they aim to (re)make Shadowrun rpg game in the original setting of 2050s… that has to work.
Am very interested in this, looking forward to its release!
