The programmer who helped create the game which is a genre in itself returns with an intriguing solo piece
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 Diablo And all his dominions.
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.
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 "Steam - 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.
