Graven looks like Heretic/Hexen

This upcoming game is giving me strong Heretic/Hexen vibes, and that's a good thing. Right down to the blue / purple health vials, and the necromancer spellbook lookalike.

I'm posting this up as it's probably under the radar for most people.

Was never a big Hexen fan, always tried to play it like Doom and it never seemed to work out.

That said I like the look of this game and I appreciate the almost nostalgic quality to the graphics (they're not low Fi, but deliberately trying to evoke the memory of 2d sprite based graphics through art direction). It looks like how you remember the Doom and Hexen era games, rather than how they actually look.

So much good stuff made with heart and passion these days, really is a great time to be a gamer.

That looks like a ton of fun to me. I really like the atmosphere and old school vibe. Thanks for posting.

I'm interested.
I wonder if it will play more like I hoped Underworld Ascendant would.
