The Witness And The Joy Of Note-Taking

Inspired by recent experiences with The Witness' [official site] puzzles, Robert Zak has been reminiscing about the art of note-taking while playing games. From graph paper for dungeon crawlers to suspicions and clues for Her Story [official site], many genres are represented, with only the noble pen and paper to hold them together.

The Beginner’s Guide: A Journey Through Genres

One day I'll write a Desert Island Discs about the games I'd keep with me until the end of days, given a choice of ten. It'll no doubt be a Desert Island Digital Downloads given the absence of physical media in my life. I live with the ghosts of entertainment. Rather than compiling the list of games I'd take to the Vault with me though,…

The Bestest Best Something In 2014: Legend Of Grimrock 2

Legend of Grimrock 2 sure was very good, everyone can agree. It took the style and mechanics of the original and expanded them in every direction, and the result is something that is definitely the best... something or other. John: Ooh, this was a tough game. A lovely, tough game. Not just because it starts you off far too weak and dumps you in the…

Legend Of Grimrock 2 review

Two and a half years after we were delighted by Legend Of Grimrock, developers Almost Human return with a sequel - Legend Of Grimrock 2 - that aims to expand on the original, go outdoors as well as in, and remind us it's hip to be a square (-moving person). Have they managed it? (Hint: OH GOOD HEAVENS YES.) Here's wot I think: Legend Of…

Tiles Of Wonder: Legend Of Grimrock 2

Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder were like mother's milk to me, and Legend of Grimrock is like a perfectly muddled gin and tonic. Grimrock's sequel now has a release date, October 15th, and a new trailer to coincide with the announcement. It shows a variety of enemies and areas, including what appears to be a cannon-wielding pirat(e), as can be seen above. There…

Legend Of Grimrock 2 Out This Year, No Early Access

It's been a long time since yesterday, so here's a quick refresher: Legend of Grimrock 2 is already deep in alpha testing and well on its way to beta. Hurrah! I can't wait to peel myself off the business end of an ogre's club only to get re-crushed by a wicked tough puzzle. All of this seems to suggest that Grimrock 2: An Even Grimmer…

Grimrock Tidings: Legend Of Grimrock 2 In Alpha

Some games make massive developmental strides loudly. STOMP STOMP STOMP WEEKLY TWITCH BROADCAST CLANG WOMP WOOZLE WE ADDED PARTICLE RENDERING. Others, however, do so in relative silence, announcing progress only once all systems are (mostly) go. Case in point: Legend of Grimrock 2. The first-person dungeon/island crawler sequel looks more and more marvelous every time we see it, and now it's quite deep in the…

Grimrock 2 Detailed: New Setting, AI, Progression, Day/Night

The original Legend of Grimrock's setting was pretty, you know, grim and also predominately made of rocks. But Legend of Grimrock 2? It's a¬†terrible, terrible lie. The isle of Nex looks like a glorious vacation getaway. With monsters. And traps. And ancient ruins. So the greatest vacation getaway ever, basically. I see a few rocks here and there, but I'm not convinced. Grimness and rocks…

The Great Outdoors: Legend Of Grimrock 2

Look at that! It's the first screenshot from Legend of Grimrock 2 and it's one of the worst pictures of a dungeon I've ever seen, right up there with the Mona Lisa and Magritte's not-a-pipe-nor-a-dungeon. After creating some top notch dank dungeons for their first RPG, Almost Human appear to have slipped up and the dungeons in Grimrock 2 will apparently contain some trees and…
