Grave survival horror indie game to hit Xbox One

The indie horror survival game Grave that is currently halfway through its Kickstarter campaign will be coming to the Xbox One, its developer Broken Windows Studios has announced. The game is set for an early 2015 release, and is also set to arrive on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The game will be coming to the console through the ID@Xbox program, with the announcement being made as its Kickstarter campaign sits a bit below the half-way mark for its $30,000 goal. There aren't many more details beyond that right now, except a cryptic tease to stay tuned because "we can say more once our dealings proceed."

For those unfamiliar, Grave is an open-world survival horror game that promises "the tension and fear" of a horror game in addition to both familiar strategy and survival focuses. Made with the Unity game engine, the developer also says its goal is to "push the graphical fidelity to its limit."

Grave offers a full story line, and draws some of its inspiration from surrealist art, with the world being one that both rearranges and changes itself as the gamer progresses. Another interesting aspect is the gamer's weapon, which is only light.

The monsters in the game all have unique reaction to light, and so light is used in different battling ways — lighting gasoline on fire, flicking a match, throwing a flashbang, and such. The game is strongly based on strategy because of this, eschewing common inventories and stockpiling.
