It Lurks Below is another upcoming indie pixel-art game which at first glance may elicit more ho-hums than genuine excitement. Diablo loot, monsters, and leveling plus the gameplay of Terraria? Sounds decent. Before you shrug, the developer Graybeard Games is basically just David Brevik. Before he took a liking to Terraria and decided he wanted more ARPG mechanics in that style game, he was the head of Blizzard North and Gazillion Entertainment. This is a guy that knows a little something about making an addictive experience based on procedurally generated assets.
There’s no release date for It Lurks Below, but Brevik told Polygon that he plans on launching it on PC this year.
