Diablo Co-Creator's New Game is Diablo Meets Terraria and It's Out Now

David Brevik's new game is finally out on Steam.

Diablo co-creator David Brevik's new game, It Lurks Below, is finally out of Steam Early Access. After a year in Early Access, you can finally pick up the 1.0 version of the game on Steam.

It Lurks Below is a dark fantasy survival RPG reminiscent of Terarria. Players traverse a big, 2D world and can choose from several classic RPG classes like Bard, Cleric, Enchanger, Necromancer, Paladin, Rogue, Warrior, and Wizard.

Afterwards players will have to venture down into the deep depths and fight monsters. Brevik says that while It Lurks Below "looks similar to other games in the genre, it plays very differently." The game differentiates itself from games like Terraria with to its RPG elements like stats and character classes. Rather, It Lurks Below is comparable to Brevik's past games like Diablo, Diablo 2, and Hellgate: London.

Brevik was a co-creator and main driving force behind the Diablo series back at Blizzard. He left in 2003, and worked on games like Hellgate and Marvel Heroes. Now he's back with an indie game from his studio Graybeard Games.

Reviewers online have given It Lurks Below mostly positive marks, and comparing it favorably to Diablo and Terraria.

Meanwhile, Blizzard still owns the Diablo franchise and they'll be making a big play on mobile with Diablo Immortal. Diablo 4 is also somewhere in development, though we've not seen much of the project outside of promises that Blizzard is working on it. Hopefully we'll hear more about future Diablo titles at BlizzCon this year.
