It Lurks Below, the current solo project of Diablo II and Marvel Heroes mastermind David Brevik, has seen a lot of improvement since its early access launch back in 2018. A massive Badlands update last year added playable Orcs and multi-classing, and Halloween has even come to the 2-D action RPG this year. But there’s always been one missing feature that we’ve wanted to see happen — and now it looks like multiplayer, indeed, is heading to the title in the near future.
“Co-op (and remote co-op through Steam) multiplayer is coming very soon,” Brevik announced on Twitter this week. “It has been under development for a month and is 80%+ done.” He also noted that an improved endgame is heading to It Lurks Below as well.
Unlike his past projects, It Lurks Below is mostly solo developed by Brevik, who does the art, coding, and music. He describes it thusly: “It can best be described a Diablo-like game played from the side [with] random items and levels, eight classes, and bosses.”
