ESPOO, FINLAND - AUGUST 21, 2014. Indie game developer Almost Human Ltd. has announced that their dungeon crawling sequel Legend of Grimrock 2 is now officially in beta. By reaching beta, the game now includes all game features, enemies and levels present in the final game. "We feel the game is like a raw diamond and now we're concentrating fully on polishing every aspect of the game until everything is perfect and shining." says Juho Salila of the Almost Human team. The beta will be closed with access given to a carefully selected group of people. By keeping the beta closed, the developers at Almost Human believe they can personally interact with the testers much better and thus get better and more accurate feedback. Almost Human has released a teaser video to celebrate reaching the beta goal.
