Legend of Grimrock 2 is a dungeon crawling game inspired by old-school classics of the genre while still bringing its own twists to the game, featuring survival, combat, magic, puzzles and role-playing elements.

The Isle of Nex, where the events of Legend of Grimrock 2 will take place, is a secluded island faraway from civilization, where the protagonist group of prisoners end up against their will. The party must solve puzzles utilizing new types of mechanics, face new deadlier, more intelligent monsters and explore dark woods, misty swamps, underground tunnels and ancient ruins in order to unlock the mysteries of the island. In Legend of Grimrock 2, the spellcasting and potion crafting systems have been greatly improved to make the game more accessible and fun to play. The skill system has been completely redesigned and replaced with a new perk-buy system that allows for more flexible character skill development. The game also features new spells and over a hundred new items as well as a new playable race, the Ratling and a new character class.

"With the success of Grimrock, we have had the privilege and luxury to listen to the audience, go through all the feedback and reviews and finetune all aspects of the game." says Petri Häkkinen of Almost Human. "At the same time we have carefully avoided changing the core game too much to stay true to its origins."

The studio also celebrates today the successful funding of Legend of Grimrock: The Series on Kickstarter. Legend of Grimrock: The Series is an officially licensed live action series from Wayside Creations, the creators of Fallout: Nuka Break series and Red Star short movie that have gathered over 8 millions viewers.

"We are super excited about the series! Wayside did a fantastic job with Fallout and we can't wait to see how the world of Grimrock will translate to the new medium." comments Häkkinen. As of 27th January The Series Kickstarter has reached over $110,000 on Kickstarter with 4 more days to go. Vincent Talenti, co-founder of Wayside Creations is equally excited about the co-operation: "We've received an overwhelming amount of support from the online community. This is an exciting time for Almost Human and Wayside."
