Legend of Grimrock opens preorders for a new old-school dungeon crawler

Yeah yeah, you've played them all, who cares about dungeon crawlers when Diablo III is coming out right? Well you're wrong, because this little gem from indie Finnish studio Almost Human takes the dungeon crawler back to its roots for some true grid-based dungeon exploration.

Legend of Grimrock is a first-person dungeon crawler inspired by classics; Eye of the Beholder, Dungeon Master, Lands of Lore and Ultima Underworld, you'll find the dungeon infested with monsters, full of mind bending traps and lovingly crafted by the four man team.

You can already pre-order the game now for its release April 11th, and if you do so from the fantastic GOG.com you will not only receive the game when released, drm free but you will also get a manual, wallpapers, world map, the main theme as featured in the trailer below, avatars, dev photos, design sketches, artwork, and custom made grid paper to print and map your journeys all for $11.99 which is 20% off the retail price of $14.99!

Ok, so perhaps the freebies may not have swayed you, however this trailer should!
