Back in 2015 David Brevik left the now-closed Gazillion and Marvel Hereos and decided to go it alone with his own one-man studio Graybeard Games. Today he revealed what he’s been working on and it’s called It Lurks Below.
Diablo players will have been hoping for some new ARPG from the Diablo creator but this time it’s something different. David is creating a 2D sandbox RPG which has been influenced by games such as Terraria and Minecraft which also pulls on his APRG game mechanic skills.
“Though I certainly had creative influence as CEO of Gazillion, I feel like I’m finally right back where I belong—actually getting my hands dirty and creating great games,” says Brevik. “It’s humbling going from large teams making content based on huge properties like Marvel to a one-man team with a brand new idea no one has heard of yet—but I’m loving every minute of the process. It’s all very exciting…and a little bit scary, too. I’ve always been a huge proponent of community involvement in game creation, and I heartily welcome all feedback from players and Twitch-stream viewers—anything that can make It Lurks Below the best it can possibly be.”
David will be showcasing the game this weekend on Twitch and you can tune in at the following times.
- Friday, Feb. 2: 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. PST
- Saturday, Feb. 3: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. PST
- Sunday, Feb. 4 (it’s the biggest game to watch of the day!): 10 a.m. – Noon PST
- Monday, Feb. 5: Noon – 2 p.m. PST
