A faithful priest of the Orthogonal order, exiled unto death for a crime in defense of another, you live again in a small boat, adrift in a swamp. A stranger ferries you to solid ground and bestows upon you vague instructions, along with a mysterious staff and book. Go forth, pious priest, alleviate suffering, uncover deceptions, and smash the eldritch perversions encroaching upon reality itself.


A marriage between modern development tools and techniques with a stark late 90s aesthetic bring the action first person puzzler GRAVEN to life, featuring 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 distinct medieval fantasy experience.



  • Solve puzzles and scour lore to uncover the motives of the foul heretical sects behind the plagues and seasons undermining the land.
  • Alter your environment with all that surrounds you, wielding spells and crystals to adjust as you see fit in your pursuit.
  • Discover new weapons and upgrade them at blacksmiths and alchemists to customize your capability.
  • Expand your horizons by returning to old stomping grounds with new abilities and seeing how far down the chasms go.
  • Slay over thirty distinct enemies in an ever broadening world across numerous biomes.
  • Walk the parallel path, lest you stumble into the recesses of the world, where the fog knows no light, and creatures beyond time roam free.
  • Earn your peace.

Prague, Czech Republic — May 26, 2021 — GRAVEN, the dark-fantasy action-adventure FPS co-published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment and developed by Slipgate Ironworks, launches onto Early Access today at 10 AM PT / 7PM CEST via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store and other digital platforms. GRAVEN will launch fully on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch in 2022.


Tear through eldritch terrors unleashed by heretical sects and demented sinners as a disgraced Priest of the Orthagonal Order. Unjustly exiled for attacking a fellow brother upon witnessing an evil act, the Priest now follows a mission ordained by The Creator: root out the evils corrupting not just the Order, but creation itself.

Steam Early Access begins the journey with the first of three planned regions: Cruxfirth, a rotting swamptown suffering from a plague that ends either in death or violent madness. Inspired by classic shooters, immersive sims, and action RPGs, GRAVEN encourages exploration and creativity with multiple ways to take on puzzles and combat alike.

Arrive by boat with a single coin, a strange staff, and a journal, still wounded by the order's punishment. Slay an expansive bestiary with more than 30 distinct enemies including winged abominations and horrid swamp beasts. Wield the spellbook to unleash transformative magic like lightning and melting heat, each capable of affecting the environment to solve puzzles and uncover hidden areas.

Tap into righteous fury with conventional weaponry like wrist-mounted crossbows, flails, and the peat launcher, a crude but effective explosive. Discover and purchase more than 20 planned weapons, spells, and new staff crystals that grant new abilities at full launch.

Early Access includes new quests in Cruxfirth, and multiple updates throughout the year will add additional areas, quests, enemies, and hidden secrets. Further down the line, the Priest shall no longer roam alone: GRAVEN will add split-screen co-op and online play for up to four players.

“For 3D Realms, Early Access has been instrumental in making sure we make the best possible games for fans of classic titles like Hexen,” said Frederik Schreiber, vice president of 3D Realms and Game Director on Graven. “The reception to GRAVEN’s demo at Steam Game Festival floored us, and now Early Access will bring even more depth to Cruxfirth.”

GRAVEN will be available in Early Access today at 10 AM PT / 7PM CEST via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store and other digital platforms for 24.99 USD /20.99 EUR / 19.99 GBP with a 10% launch discount during the first week. The game will launch fully on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch in 2022. For more information please explore the official websites for GRAVEN, 3D Realms, 1C Entertainment and Slipgate Ironworks.
