Grave Danger is launching their Ultimate Edition with ten new levels that will include tons of new mechanics including tippy platforms, firewalls, and a rideable robotic bird.
Described by some over the past year to be the nearest potential spiritual successor to the retro game The Lost Vikings, Grave Danger is an action-packed adventure game about an unlikely group of heroes. Switch between Dante the Cowboy, Elliot the Wizard, and Malice the Reaper; use their different abilities to solve puzzles and make their way out of trouble. Will you be able to guide them to victory?
Play single player or co-op to solve puzzles! Enlist your friends to control all three characters locally, utilizing them to their maximum potential. If you can’t play with a friend or want the completely single-player experience, that’s fine too; the game will be completely playable in either mode.
“Grave Danger: Ultimate Edition is a complete collection of all things Grave Danger, a game released December of 2016. In the ultimate edition, we have added ten new levels, new mechanics such as a rideable bird to traverse hazardous environments, and many more types of puzzles. Along with the new features and content, we have fixed a number of bugs and improved upon existing levels. Grave Danger: Ultimate Edition will be released on Steam January 25th, 2018.” – Cody Anderson, Lead Developer.
The Gameplay Experience:
Grave Danger’s game play is about utilizing each character’s unique abilities to solve puzzles. The player will switch between these characters and master their movements and attacks, guiding our heroes further into the story. Manage your party and keep everyone alive. Nobody likes a dead teammate. Don’t leave your heroes unattended in a dangerous spot or they might get beat up!
Teamwork is essential in Grave Danger. Each character must pull their weight and traverse the world to safety. Dante the Cowboy is capable of climbing vertical walls. Malice the Reaper can float horizontally across chasms and through narrow and dangerous areas. Elliot the Wizard has magical elevation and can jump again once mid-air.
