Graven - Coming 2022


Graven appears to have been delayed for consoles and will now release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PlayStation in 2022. At Realms Deep 2021, the developer showed off the second Early Access update for PC build:

We've also got one bonus announcement - and while there's no confirmation for Switch or console platforms just yet, Nightdive Studios has revealed it's reviving the 1996 Sega Saturn title PowerSlave Exhumed by Lobotomy Software. It's apparently "coming soon" to PC (GOG) and makes use of both the Saturn and PSone versions. Here's a look:
