If you own delightful dungeon-crawler Legend of Grimrock on Steam, you can get cracking on making your own hellish holes as developer Almost Human Games today released a beta version of the editor. Initially available only on Steam (with Steam Workshop support), it lets you make everything from your own levels to, ah, an angry cow on wheels.

The map editor seems a pleasingly simple affair, letting you draw out spaces then allowing you to quickly pop into your level to check it out. It also supports making new items and monsters, LUA scripting, replacing cinematics, and importing custom textures, sound and music. You can make something rather new and exciting, in short.

The beta version is only available on Steam, Almost Human explains, because it's quick and easy to roll out frequent updates. It'll be available for people who don't own Legend of Grimrock on Steam once it's finished, though, and Grimrock Nexus has been set up for the poor souls who'll also be deprived of the Steam Workshop.

To download the beta editor and start making the cow level of your dreams, right-click on LoG in your Steam Library and go into the Properties, then opt into the beta through the Betas tab.

Here's a little red-hot editor action:

      I really need to go back to finished this game. I loved it so much but then got distracted by a couple other games. This really satisfies that Wizardry itch I've had for years.

        The ending is kind of lame but it's still worth finishing.

        I loved it until it got hard and discovered you can't change difficulty.

        QUIT -> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS -> ARE YOU SURE? EFF YES!

          I HATED the puzzles that required items from earlier in the dungeon or previous floors and required backtracking. Liked the game aside from that though.

            Same. I got pretty far but stopped playing because I couldn't find some stupid key I must have missed 2 or 3 levels prior. Great, addicting game up until that point though!

      How wonky is this game? I keep thinking it looks like a pretty hardcore RPG, which I'm not really in the mood for, but I hear a lot of good things about it.

      Great game, got a little annoying on the later levels when the enemies kept respawning. Fighting mechanics can be a bit hack-move-hack-move but that's normal for these games. But it's fun exploring and certainly early on in the game the puzzles are perfectly paced and you feel a real sense of achievement when you keep solving them.

      The community will churn out vastly better level designs, look forward to seeing what comes down the pipelines.
      Portal 2 community levels are awesome sauce.
