Legend Of Grimrock 2 Out This Year, No Early Access

It?s been a long time since yesterday, so here?s a quick refresher: Legend of Grimrock 2 is already deep in alpha testing and well on its way to beta. Hurrah! I can?t wait to peel myself off the business end of an ogre?s club only to get re-crushed by a wicked tough puzzle. All of this seems to suggest that Grimrock 2: An Even Grimmer Rock is right around the corner, but apparently that?s only sort of the case. I got in touch with developer Almost Human about release plans and the possibility of an Early Access phase, and here?s what they told me.

 

First things first: Grimrock 2 will be out this year. Almost Human isn?t ready to narrow down a precise date yet, but expect the game in 2014. Oh, and expect it to be polished ? a rarity in these knock-down, drag-out days of constant early access. Almost Human?s main influences are decidedly old-fashioned, as is their approach. So they told me:

 

?We are kind of old-fashioned and want to release the game in a polished condition, so Steam Early Access is not planned. We are going to have preorders though.?

Can?t argue with that. I don?t hate the concept of early access by any means, but I also don?t think it?s appropriate for all games. Ultimately it?s up to creators to decide, and I think Almost Human is making the right call here. You can only solve a puzzle and explore a world so many times, after all.

Who?s eagerly awaiting Grimrock 2? Is anybody at all upset by this news? If so, why?
