Grave Danger: The Ultimate Edition, with 10 New Levels is Releasing on January 25, 2018 on Steam, Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch Q3 2018

Grave Danger is launching their Ultimate Edition with 10 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.
