Original Thread: The Four Idiot Hodown - Legend of Grimrock II [Four commentator VLP]



Legend of Grimrock II, developed by Almost Human, is a 2014 send-up of classic grid-based 3D RPGs such as Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder. You play in first-person view, move only in the four cardinal directions, fight monsters and sometimes innocent wild animals, and solve devious puzzles to survive. Where the first Grimrock was a single dungeon reaching down deep into the earth, Grimrock II expands into a wide open overworld with secrets, treasures, dungeons, and mysteries aplenty. And lots of turtles to punch and munch.

You play up to four prisoners who are being transferred overseas when your ship crashes on the mysterious island of Nex. One pesky island master seems eager to throw you into dungeons and traps all over the island. With Ogre Taint the Minotaur Barbarian, Cricket Dazzler the Insectoid Battlemage, Failure of a Son the Lizardman Alchemist, and Pubert the Ratling Farmer, you must explore Nex, solve clever puzzles, fight vicious creatures, and gather the four essences of nature in order to find your way home. Or find the secret fifth element, and take a different option...

This is a 100%, sort-of-optimized, informative but inevitably goofy run of the game. I will find all of the secrets, treasures, Epic Items, Power Gems, and show off all of the endings, along with the occasional extra tip or secret. My characters and classes were chosen for variety, efficiency, and hilarity. My co-commentators are Mugiwara Yoshi, BigTUnit1, and JigglyJacob, who were also chosen for those same reasons... along with a surprise reason you will see in Part 1.

After the main LP, there is also a short Mod Showcase showing off a few of the custom dungeons and campaigns designed by fans. Highwang and occasionally JigglyJacob join me as co-commentators for those.

This LP is a spinoff and was partially inspired by Highwang's single character challenge run. It convinced me to pick up the game in the first place and is recommended viewing.
If you haven't seen the first game and are curious, you can check out Highwang's Toorum run, Agent355's somewhat serious LP or Iron Chitlin's four-commentator fuckaround LP. It's up to you to decide which of the three our LP ends up the most like.
