Almost Human's shiny Dungeon Master-inspired dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock will be released for PC on April 11, the studio founded by veterans of Remedy and Futuremark announced today. Pre-orders have now opened, with a 20% discount bringing it down to $11.99.

You can pre-order Legend of Grimrock direct from Almost Human, to support the dev more and also get a Steam key, or GOG, where it's naturally DRM-free--and part of GOG's move to sell more newer games. It seems Grimrock won't be sold on Steam until it actually launches, but pre-ordering from Almost Human is clearly the best option for the studio and Steam fans alike.

Pre-orderering will also let you prepare for your adventures, granting instant access to Grimrock's manual, world map, "custom made grid paper to print out for all your mapping needs," music, wallpapers, art, and other jazz.

As the new trailer below shows, you can expect traps, treasure, puzzles and 'orrible monsters as your party of four ventures down through the dungeons and catacombs beneath Mount Grimrock. Check out the official site for more information.

      I'm gonna need to get this. The only first person dungeon crawler I've ever played was Shining in the Darkness(pretty sure that was its name) for the Genesis, and I never got very far.

      I read the title as "Legend of Grimlock" and thought it was the most badass Transformers game title ever.

      Pre-ordered from GOG. The pre-order price is $11.99 discounted from $14.99. Normally, I do not pre-order, but I loved Dungeon Master and the Eye of the Beholder series and felt that these guys deserved a pre-order vote of confidence for making a modern take on that style of game.

        If you get it straight from the dev they get more money and you get a steam key, fyi.

          Or do both. I was expecting it to launch for more so I grabbed an extra copy with GoG to give a friend.

        That's exactly my reasoning. Hope I didn't spend my money too early.

        You need to have been a gamer in the 80s to get the nostalgia twinge for this.

      So this is what the 2012 version of Eye of the Beholder would look like? Sweet!

        Eye of the Beholder, Might and Magic 3, 4, and 5, and Lands of Lore.

        This game is going to rock my cock!

      What's with all this "Reminds me of Eye of the Beholder/Stonekeep/Lands of Lore"

      Did nobody play Dungeon Master??

      So how many times can you expect to replay this game? Some of the beta testers have said that you can run through in about 10-15 hours so it seems kinda shallow for as awesome as the theme is.

        $11.99

        Yeah, 10-15 hours for $12 is a pretty shitty value proposition.

        and you think the beta version is the final product ?

        This allows for sequels of superiority without over staying its welcome, I say go for it.

        I've paid a lot more for games far shorter and been happy with that. Dollars per hour isn't a very healthy way of looking at games.

          Dollars/Enjoyment is much better, but horrendously subjective.

          Journey was one of the best games I've played so far this year and that was $15 for 2-3 hours
