Former Marvel Heroes boss David Brevik launches new game, It Lurks Below, into early access

If you’ve been finding yourself missing Marvel Heroes – but not all the drama and lies – you might want to mosey on over to Steam today, where former Gazillion CEO David Brevik is launching his new sidescrolly pixelart RPG, It Lurks Below, into early access.

It Lurks Below is a fun new one-man indie game project from myself, David Brevik, the creator of Diablo and Diablo II. Although the game is already engaging and addictive, I want to use Early Access to make the project even better. I’m a big believer in actively communicating with your community, getting feedback and improving the final product. This has already been going on in a small closed beta, but I’m ready to open it up and make the best possible game.”

Launch is expected later this year; the current version is just shy of 20 bucks. As we’ve previously reported, it’s not an MMO, and it’s not even multiplayer, so you won’t see much coverage of it here going forward, but Brevik is a big name in MMOs, so there you go – consider yourself duly notified about a cool thing he’s doing.

Would be worth looking into if it were multiplayer. I just don’t see this game gaining much traction with current-day gamers being single player only.

I dunno, im interested because of its single player aspect, but then again i play MMOs as a single player hehe

As do I, on the rare occasion I play an MMO. This though… this is just another pixel game adventure in an oversaturated genre with less options than it’s predecessors.

It would have been better to title this article :

“FORMER DIABLO 1&2 BOSS DAVID BREVIK LAUNCHES NEW GAME, IT LURKS BELOW, INTO EARLY ACCESS”

Since his new game, is inspired by those games.

Just saying

I think they did it this way in a (probably futile) attempt to avoid the “Why you post about non-MMOs wah wah wah” complaints.
