It’s always nice to hear a story of indie game success and we had quite a few last year. For Legend of Grimrock developer Almost Human, its success has a fat, measurable figure: 600,000 copies sold. That’s a lot of coin to put into one’s purse.
Almost Human recently announced the figure in a blog post that served the dual purpose of highlighting the game’s milestones so far and foreshadowing its plans for 2013. It points out its healthy score of 82 on Metacritic, its position as the top seller on Steam (for two weeks, a commendable achievement) and the 450 mods that reside in the game’s workshop on the digital distributor.
There’s also the Legend of Grimrock forum, which is packed with 50,000-plus posts. That’s a healthy sounding community if there ever was one.
The post included the following two screenshots, hinting at upcoming content for the old school dungeon crawler. They’re exceptionally mysterious, to the point of being somewhat uncompelling, but there is a quality to the distant, zombie-like figure of the second screenie.
