To prepare for the 1.0 launch next year, the development team is currently focusing on refining the following features:

  • Combat and AI.
  • The Archivist and the Festering Congregation battles.
  • Two new difficulty options of Casual and Flagellant.

In a statement, 3D Realms CEO Frederik Schreiber revealed that as the official launch gets closer, they want to release one last big update for the community. He added that the feedback from the community has played a role in making sure that they’re able to do the game justice.

Learn More About the Game

In the game, players take on the role of a faithful priest of the Orthogonal order who has been exiled unto death for a crime in defense of another. The priest has been living in a small boat and adrift in a swamp. One day, a stranger takes them to solid ground and gives them vague instructions, along with a mysterious staff and book.

GRAVEN is a first-person puzzler that offers modern development tools and techniques combined with a stark late 90s aesthetic. It features character designs by Chuck Jones, known for Duke Nukem and Half-Life. There’s also the voice talent of Stephan Weyte (Blood, Fire Emblem, Dusk).

Game features of GRAVEN include:

  • Solve puzzles and scour lore to uncover the motives of the foul heretical sects behind the plagues and seasons undermining the land.
  • Alter your environment with all that surrounds you. Wield spells and crystals to adjust as you see fit in your pursuit.
  • Discover new weapons and upgrade them at blacksmiths and alchemists to customize your capability.
  • Expand your horizons by returning to old stomping grounds with new abilities and seeing how far down the chasms go.
  • Slay over 30 distinct enemies in an ever broadening world across numerous biomes.
  • Walk the parallel path, lest you stumble into the recesses of the world, where the fog knows no light, and creatures beyond time roam free.
  • Earn your peace.

GRAVEN is coming out in 2023.
