Unbelievable. These guys at Almost Human are AWESOME in my book. I hope they are deluged in purchases and become multi millionaires, and make many (turn based) sequels to this fantastic looking game.

WTF!? Beware the above link! I picked up some kind of trojan just now.

Now I can't even boot up Microsoft Security Essentials or Internet Explorer.

I'm sure they did this for just one guy - and not for the PR value

If you used a Mac or iPad (for which this game is coming for also) you wouldn't have picked a trojan up at all.

Yeah, but then I'd only have about 1/10 the amount of games to choose from.

Anyways.. I had to boot into safe mode and run Malwarebytes to get rid of that trojan. I assume it was a random attack and not normally associated with that website.

Avast warned me about a trojan when I tried to open that site, so there is absolutely something wrong with it.

Wow, sorry about that guys. My pc detected nothing, and it seems like a popular site. I seriously doubt the site owner is sending viruses to ppl on purpose…

It is probably a similar Trojan to the one that was injected in a lot of sites back in late 2010, early 2011, and it might not be the actual blog that is targeted, but rather one of the advertisement banners that is spreading it.


Actually:

Yep, another mass injection is currently in effect.

Oh? I was reading today about some 0.5mill strong mac botnet.

For you Windows users I recommend installing RequestPolicy addon in Firefox. Blocks all external links by default.

That trojan is really simple to get rid of and just a minor nuisance.

Since this is the only non-news bit post about Grimrock I'll just throw this in here.

Does anybody know if the blue crystals (that restor dead party members/health/mana) renew or are they only usable once and then that's it?

They renew on level transitions… Do not know if it is intentional but sure is useful
(I hate reloading and I usually not unless all the party dies which is just often enough to keep things interesting, even on hard)

Actually they seem to renew on a timer. I used one, went away to fight something and when I returned it was usable again.

If God said it, then that settles it!!

Yep that is true. A party member died and I returned to find one conveniently recharged just a while ago in the same level…
