David Brevik has been busy working on a new game since leaving the now-defunct Marvel Heroes studio Gazillion back in 2015. He’s now back with his new game called It Lurks Below.
It Lurks Below is a 2D sandbox RPG which has been influenced by games such as Terraria and Minecraft but pulls on Brevik’s sound knowledge of great RPG game mechanics.
“Though I certainly had creative influence as CEO of Gazillion, I feel like I’m finally right back where I belong—actually getting my hands dirty and creating great games,” says Brevik. “It’s humbling going from large teams making content based on huge properties like Marvel to a one-man team with a brand new idea no one has heard of yet—but I’m loving every minute of the process. It’s all very exciting…and a little bit scary, too. I’ve always been a huge proponent of community involvement in game creation, and I heartily welcome all feedback from players and Twitch-stream viewers—anything that can make It Lurks Below the best it can possibly be.”
This weekend Brevik will be showing the game live on Twitch where the closed beta will be on show with a select group of participants being chosen to take part. If you want to see what it’s all about them tune in at the following times.
- Friday, Feb. 2: 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. PST
- Saturday, Feb. 3: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. PST
- Sunday, Feb. 4 (it’s the biggest game to watch of the day!): 10 a.m. – Noon PST
- Monday, Feb. 5: Noon – 2 p.m. PST
