Do you find yourself in the dark and addictive style of Diablo or Diablo 2? Unfortunately there is no real heir to them on the horizon at this point - but yes there is a new indie game from one of the main original creators, who will try to offer something refreshing and new, but also nostalgic at the same time.

The creator is called David Berwick, and the new project is called It Lurks Below - a Roguelike-style action game that purports to be a kind of combination of resource gathering and building games such as Terraria and Starbound and And all his dominions.

It doesn't look like Diablo - but the creator promises to have features here that will make it feel like the classic classic game

It Lurks Below is a two-dimensional game with pixelated retro graphics and randomly assembled stages at a time, with changing enemies that require the player to adjust his tactics and a wide variety of weapons and objects with varying numerical data. These characteristics accompany Berwick's writings from the mid-1990s - and he creates it all by himself this time through the personal studio called Graybeard Games, from programming, through graphic design to audio and soundtrack.

Despite some basic graphics, Berwick declares that he has tried to make the game as stressful and threatening as possible - partly through a game mode in which the character's death is final, with no opportunity for further experience

A closed beta with several hundred participants for It Lurks Below began this weekend, and Berwick intends to launch its official launch this year as part of the " - When it also promises to continue to work on it, expand and upgrade later even after distribution. Is there enough years of experience and vision behind this project to make it a success story, even though it is extremely modest? Feel free to tell us what you think in the comments.

  1. This man is an endless well of talent and creativity, but I believe it's time to pack things and return to Blizzard to command the next Diablo which is in the early stages of development.

    Come on, David. It's a shame for all of us, it's time to create another game to remember for generations.

  2. Really does not look ingenious or creative, maybe will be a good game and quality, but it is not such a novelty. There are many more. TERRARIA This is actually the first MINECRAFT 2D I think.
