Action RPG Johnny Graves—The Unchosen One Enters Early Access Next Week

Developed by Finland-based Stupid Stupid Games, Johnny Graves—The Unchosen One will have you fighting Satan’s forces when it hits Early Access on June 15th.

Johnny Graves is probably the perfect name for the protagonist of what seems like a cross between hardboiled noir and gothic fiction, which is my impression of hack-and-slash action RPG Johnny Graves—The Unchosen One. The titular protagonist, Johnny Graves, was once an agent of Hell, now being searched for by Satan himself to bring him back into the fold. Needless to say, Johnny has other plans, and now he’s got one night to stop the forces of Hell and perhaps even Satan himself from crossing over into the mortal realm.

The game appears to be in a hack-and-slash mould, not unlike Diablo or Path of Exile. Unlike them, however, the action is set in 1979 New York, and so instead of actual hacking and slashing, it appears that you will be shooting your way through the demonic baddies with your trusty, hardboiled revolver. When it arrives on Early Access next week, it will feature one of seven levels, one of six magic bullets, 2 of 10 enemy monsters and 2 of 8 storytelling sequences (cutscenes?) and no bosses. Content will be added over time, and the final version of the game is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Stupid Stupid Games aren’t stopping there, though: although Johnny Graves—The Unchosen One is their first game, they’ve planned out a whole trilogy of games set in a universe they call Agents of Armageddon, of which Johnny Graves is but the first part. Agents of Armageddon includes the above-mentioned games, as well as a prequel visual novel, an e-book and a tabletop RPG (and possibly even more in the future). Check out the full details at their official website.

If you’d like to get in on the Early Access for Johnny Graves, head over to the Steam page. The current version of the game offers 20 minutes of gameplay, so it’s not all that long, but you could help in the game’s development while you’re at it.
