No doubt you are all playing Legend of Grimrock as I type but here's the official announcement that this highly-anticipated title is now available:

Legend of Grimrock Released Today
Indie developer Almost Human's old-school dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock for PC is released today on Steam, GOG.com and the developer's website grimrock.net for $14.99 with a first week sale cutting 10% off the retail price.

ESPOO, FINLAND - APRIL 11, 2012. Almost Human, the indie developer "more human than most", is proud to announce that their monster infested, mind bending, trap filled and lovingly crafted dungeon opens its doors for brave explorers today when Legend of Grimrock is released. The critically aclaimed first-person dungeon exploration game is Almost Human's debut title. Here is what the reviewers had to say about the game:

"It’s bloody brilliant."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"Legend of Grimrock is Everything I Wanted in a Modern-Day Dungeon Crawler."
- Kotaku

"The balance between exciting combat, thought-provoking puzzle work, and open-ended exploration is stellar."
- IGN

"Grimrock has some of the best puzzles in a video game we have encountered, ever."
- Video Review by Elder Geek

"Captures everything that's fun about old-school RPGs."
- GameSpy
I'll throw a couple of addition LoG items here:
Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a game diary titled A Dad in A Dungeon:
You must consider that I had left the Land of Skyrim to enter this dungeon. After gliding around stupendously breathtaking landscapes, here I was moving one square, surrounded by bricks! “Ah!” I thought, “this is like Dungeon Master.” But do I really want Dungeon Master having experienced Skyrim?
So, we found some clothes, and some rocks for my Roguish Popsy to chuck. I bumbled about a bit, opened a few doors, met a snail… and died.
…and GameBanshee announces they have their LoG subsite ready with a walkthrough, alchemy recipes, hard-to-find secrets and so on.

More information.
