After apparently getting tired of delving through damp and dark dungeons, the Legend of Grimrock devs have now released a colorful and charming turn-based tactics game called Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest. You can expect to see a variety of unique characters and abilities, plenty of upgrades and items to collect, as well as numerous hand-crafted missions that will require a bit of thought in order to complete.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted and fairly lengthy gameplay preview. It'll give you an excellent idea of just what Druidstone is about, as well as whether it's the type of game you'd enjoy or not. Have a look:

It is important to mention that while Druidstone has some RPG elements, it is most definitely a combat-focused tactics game. In other words, you will spend the vast majority of your time fighting battle after battle, many of which have been designed as a sort of puzzle and will require a bit of effort to beat. For me this isn't exactly a negative as I love turn-based strategy, but it is one of those details that's really important to emphasize as everyone has a different idea of what a turn-based RPG truly means.

With that little bit of warning now out of the way, you can learn more about Druidstone, as well as grab yourself a copy, by hopping over to either Steam or GOG. Have fun!
