Graven, a genre-blending first person puzzler, is coming in 2021

Another genre-blending game has been announced with Graven, a game set in a dark and twisted world that combines puzzle solving mechanics, world exploration, action adventure (inspired by old-school first person shooters and RPG’s alike) and more into a very interesting looking game. Graven follows a lost priest that was exiled to a burning desert for taking vengeance upon the heretic that sacrificed his adopted daughter. Seeking to find some measure of peace, the Creator speaks to him directly and tells him that “You will have to earn your peace.”

The game’s reveal trailer shows a pixellated aesthetic that is quite popular amongst indie games, but with a darker feel to it and gory gombat. In Graven, it looks like you can use a variety of weapons including swords, crossbows, and magic to make your enemies explode in a variety of ways, as you track down heretical factions responsible for essentially screwing up the world and its natural seasons. Graven also has a focus on exploration, using puzzle solving skills and observation to discover new secrets, find hidden gold for upgrades, and even return to old areas with new abilities.
