Former members of Alan Wake developer Remedy and Shattered Horizon maker Futuremark at indie studio Almost Human have released the debut gameplay trailer for their first-person dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock. The genre's staged something of a comeback in recent years, but it's rarely looked as pretty as here.

Legend of Grimrock imprisons your party of four (a fighter, rogue, punchy fighter, and mage, naturally) in the dungeons of Mount Grimrock, and, of course, the only way out is through. Along the way, you'll be solving puzzles, grabbing loot, uncovering secret areas, and, as ever, killing horrid monstrosities. And yes, that is grid-based movement you see.

"It will be influenced by oldschool games of the genre but it won't be a game that would have been possible to make fifteen years ago," Almost Human explained in July. "It will look great, have loads of atmosphere, sound good and play well. We won't be making many promises during the development since things will often change down the line, but those aforementioned parameters I can pretty much guarantee."

Legend of Grimrock is in development for PC, Mac, and iOS devices, aiming for release by the end of the year. Check out the Legend of Grimrock website and FAQ for more.

      This will be a must buy for me. I loved Stonekeep and remember playing it over and over and over and over.

      Reminds me of Eye of the Beholder for the SNES. Never did finish that game.

      I have always thought this type of game would be perfect for iPad / CellPhones. The interface for this type of game has always been tap / click heavy.

      It seems that it would be right at home on such a device.

        I didn't even notice that they were targeting iOS devices. That's perfect, this will rock on an iPad.

      I gotta say this looks pretty damn sweet. I've always wanted someone to do an Ultima Underworld style game with new tech and graphics. I'm definitely looking forward to this.
