Diablo Creator David Brevik Is Back!

New Game ‘It Lurks Below’ Lurks on Twitch This Weekend in Closed Beta Form, Mixing Elements of ‘Terraria’ and ‘Diablo’

January 31, 2018 – San Francisco, CA – Two years after founding his one-man studio known as Graybeard Games, industry luminary David Brevik has returned, set to debut his first major release since 2013. Coming to Steam later this year, It Lurks Below combines Brevik’s love for the creative spirit behind such titles as Terraria and Minecraft with the revolutionary RPG mechanics he himself conceptualized for Diablo, all with a delightfully indie/retro aesthetic. Those curious to see exactly what lurks below can tune in to Twitch this weekend to view a closed beta comprised of 200 players experiencing the game for the first time—except for Brevik, of course, who has spent many months with the game and will also be streaming it.

The closed beta begins on Friday, Feb. 2, and ends Monday evening, Feb. 5. All participants are actively encouraged to stream the game via Twitch, and Brevik will be doing so himself at the following times from twitch.tv/graybeardgames:

  • 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

Brevik also promises to randomly surprise beta players who are checking out the game—there’s no telling where else you’ll see him pop up!

“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, who moved on from his position as CEO of Gazillion Entertainment in 2015. “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.”
