Default Legend of Grimrock 2 - Beta & New Trailer

August 22nd, 2014, 16:45
Almost Human announces Legend of Grimrock 2 is officially in beta. Don't get your hopes up though as it's a closed beta, and they are not accepting applications at this time.

Here is a new teaser trailer to help us all cope in the meantime.



Big news indeed! Oh boy we’re super-excited to tell you that we are now officially in BETA! And it’s about time! We have been burning the midnight oil for so long that all our dreams are now filled with visions directly from the Isle of Nex. The game, a raw diamond which we have been carefully chiseling and polishing so long, is now finally coming together and it’s starting to feel really good. That doesn’t mean that the work ends here. Beta is actually a beginning, a beginning to make the game meet all your high expectations. It’s time to balance all the thousands of gameplay parameters and finetune the gui and optimize the game, and… You get the point! All the features we’ve planned are in and just waiting for some TLC.

But before you mail us offering to kindly join the beta-test team… It’s going to be a closed beta again, sorry. Closed beta worked really well with LoG1 and we’re looking to repeat the process. By giving beta access to a carefully selected group of people, we can personally interact with the testers much better and thus get better and more accurate feedback.

The game has been playable from the beginning to the end for some time now and now that we have had one complete playthrough and several cheated speed-throughs we have some idea about the length of the game. It’s looking like Grimrock 2 is going to be around 25% longer than Grimrock 1 but more testing by us and our betatesters is still needed to confirm this.

Like mentioned, all the features of the game are in, but there’s still much work to do. Our Venerable List of Things To Do is constantly getting added with new entries even as we are hammering on the things at the other end of the list. But we are fighting hard to empty the list before the launch. Btw. on top of the list we have things like memory and performance optimizations and tutorial. Below that lots and lots of smaller tweaks and fixes and then of course testing, testing and more testing…

Yeah, a still image with the text "Coming Soon!" would have conveyed just as much information as that video.

I happen to be in the middle of the first game right now, and I've been really surprised by how much a pure dungeon-crawler with next to no dialogue and (so far) very little story has captured my attention.

Let's hope the beta is over quickly… I'm ready to play this game!

BTW, the teaser trailer is better suited for FarCry than a game like this…
We should've been moving over the water in a clunky, step-like fashion… implying a levitate or walk on water spell in in effect.
