Find yourself missing the dark and addictive style of Diablo or Diablo 2? Unfortunately, there is no real successor to them on the horizon at this stage - but there is also a new Indie game from one of the original creators, who will try to offer something refreshing and new, but also nostalgic at the same time.

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

It does not look like Diablo - but the creator promises that there will be characteristics here that will make it feel like the popular classic game

It Lurks Below is a 2D game with retro retro graphics and randomly mounted stages, 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 titles since the mid-1990s - and he creates it all alone this time through the personal studio called Graybeard Games, from programming, graphic design to audio and soundtrack.

Despite some basic graphics, Berwick states that he tried to make the game as stressful and threatening as possible - including through a game in which the death of the character is final, without the opportunity for another attempt

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 he also promises to continue working on it, to expand and upgrade later even after distribution. Does this project have enough years of experience and vision to make it a success story, even though it is almost drastically modest? You are invited to tell us what you think about the reactions.

  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.
