THE GRAVE

A faithful priest of the Orthogonal Order, exiled to death for one crime in defense of another, you live again in a small boat, adrift in a swamp. A stranger ferries you to solid ground and gives you vague instructions along with a mysterious staff and book. Go forth, pious priest, heal the suffering, expose the deception, and smash the ancient perversions that permeate reality itself.

A marriage of modern development tools and techniques with a sharp late ’90s aesthetic brings the action first-person puzzler GRAVEN to life, with character designs by Chuck Jones (Duke Nukem 3d, Half-Life) and the voice talent of Stephan Weyte (Blood, Fire ). Emblem, Dusk) in a dark yet distinctly medieval fantasy experience.
