Let's Play - Legend of Grimrock

posted by RetroVortex on - last edited - Viewed by 402 users

I've been wanting to do a LP for a while, but due to technical difficulties and lack of time, I've been unable to.

But St. Eddie (Davies), suggested that maybe I should just do a typed up one instead.

You know what... I'm going to take you up on that.

So for the past hour or so, I have been working on the first chapter of the grand voyage into the unknown.

Which can be read here:

Not so eventful, but all journeys have to have a beginning! Right? :o

So the game I chose was Legend of Grimrock.
A perfect choice, because I literally just downloaded it, and I want to be driven to play it.

So yeah. Enjoy. :D

(NOTE: It may take some time to upload the files, so chapters may not be immediately available)

EDIT: Updated with link to chapter 4.

    Hah! I'm on level 4. ;)

    All right, maybe I have just fallen into level 4 but quickly returned to 3.

    Oh shush!

    I've only literally just got the game, (spent hours on the bus waiting to get in and download it).

    Plus playing the game is going to be slow, when I have to type it all up at the same time too!

    Working on Chapter 2 as we speak. Haven't left the first room yet! XD

  • still downloading. But why make a written Let's Play?

    (a) The game has only been available for three hours.

    (b) I was really impressed with how you've got so far with the 'letswalkplaythrough' in such a short period of time.


    Ketzer, what's your internet DL speed?!

  • @der_ketzer said: still downloading. But why make a written Let's Play?



    Every time I have tried to make a video LP. It ALWAYS FAILS!

    Either one piece of recording software fails, or someone drags me off in the middle of a game.

    This way I can go at my own pace! :D

    EDIT: Chapter 2 is uploading now.

    (I think I'm going to keep these relatively short, file size and all that)

  • @Vainamoinen said: Ketzer, what's your internet DL speed?!



    178 kb/sek (my max speed sadly). And Steam was a little bit late for the party. Preorders were unlocked 90 minutes after the release when people who bought it on steam were already playing. The HIB link was no option either that had glorious 30 kb/sek.:mad:
    And I don't care if the CoC(k)-purchase was a better experience because the 3 people that bought it there don't count.
    Also let's just say people weren't happy on the Steam forum about that.

  • Think I'm going to leave it at that for tonight.
    Its getting toasty here, so I'll resume tomorrow in the morning.

    Time for a drink, methinks! :D

  • Haha. It amused me greatly when you put the torch on the pressure sensitive pad. Please can you try your best to accumulate as many rocks as possible? It could become a fun little mini-game!

    Interestingly, people on gog.com were pretty mad because they suspected that the release timeline on gog.com AND on the developer's website was dictated by Steam so they could have a simultaneous release. Now THAT worked pretty well.

    It might not really help you, but some people reported that those who pre-ordered on the developer's website have had an even less enjoyable time (because that one promptly crashed at the specified time - could not handle so many requests).

    Seems I really lucked out this time (yes, it could have gone wrong also ;) ). I started downloading one minute after the specified release time (wasn't even in F5 mode, been playing Anachronox before), the download took considerably below 10 minutes and the installation cost about 30 seconds (that was really scary ;) ).

    All right, off to the "now playing" thread for a few praising words.

  • I have played 65 minutes (thanks to Steam for that data) and haven't even made it to the first Savepoint yet. Oh death my eternal companion.
