Legend of Grimrock (PC)

Legend of Grimrock is a dungeon-crawling role-playing game with an old-school heart but a modern execution. A group of prisoners is sentenced to death by exiling them to the secluded Mount Grimrock for vile crimes they may or may not have committed. Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons and tombs built by civilizations of yore. If they wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom, the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain. Legend of Grimrock puts an emphasis on puzzles and exploration and the wits and perception of the player are more important tools than even the sharpest of swords could be.
