You might recall The Legend of Grimrock from a story I posted about the developers changing the game to accommodate the needs of a handicapped fan. Now the old school dungeon crawler with modern sensibilities is heading our way, and preorder customers can grab a copy for only $US11.99 right now at the Almost Human website and

Preordering the game earns the player instant access to a bevy of goodies, including the manual, world map, theme music, wallpapers, art sheets, and grid paper you can print out if you decide to forego the auto mapping feature and kick it classic style.
