I don't think it was meant to be a hardcore RPG. It was meant to be a modern take on old first person action-rpg dungeon crawls like Eye of the Beholder or Dungeon Master. I'm glad they did too, because we haven't seen much activity in the niche in years. Arx Fatalis was the last one before Grimrock I can think of and that was 2002. If we further limit the search to tile-based movement, you have to go even further back to the mid 90s.
