I have been really looking forward to playing Legend of Grimrock 2 soon. Unfortunately, the game is not available for Linux yet, and as it seems it's not certain whether we will see it on Linux at all. I have emailed the developers asking about Linux availability, and this is the response I got:

Hey Kamil,

Unfortunately we can't promise a linux port at this moment.

It's up to you to deduce how likely we are to see a Linux version in the future, but it certainly won't be soon.

Maybe, if there's a strong support under this article, I can send a link back to them and it might convince them a bit more that the demand is here. Or maybe you have better ideas. Anyway, this is really bad news for dungeon crawling fans. :( Article taken from

Hmh, that's sad.
I was really looking forward for Grimrock 2 for Linux. Would've bought it on day one.
But let's see. Maybe we will still see Grimrock 2 for Linux one day.

its a great great game, I just finished the Humble Store version using the latest version of crossover without a single issue, ran smooth and most of all it was really really fun. They pushed the engine to the max I think, lots of outdoor stuff as well as good dungeons.

Yes a shame there might not be a linux release, but if you like this style of old school Dungeon Master/Eye of the Beholder game then its silly to skip it just because there won't be a native version. Does it really matter that I am running it in a crossover shell, sorry not to me, it matters if I enjoy myself and 23 hours of gameplay tell me I did :)

It's bad news, but if you're looking for a dungeon crawler on Linux, you can always have a look at Dungeon kingdom : sign of the moon. It should be available in january 2015 and it looks pretty good.

I asked on the grimrock forums if they were planning a MAC version of the game and they are but no release date yet. The reason why the Linux version is uncertain is that they can't do it inhouse. The MAC varsion they can.

loved grimrock, never finished it tho.

why? quite at the end theres a secret that requires you to use multiple items.. some of which you very likely trashed hours earlier (like throwing stones). that single thing made me ragequit the whole game, as i was so upset about the possible loot that i was going to never see - because of the _worst_design_flaw_ever :P
