Devil Daggers records still being broken, still wild as all heck

"Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven," Satan once wrote on a toilet door, back before he was ejected from his skull throne by Devil Daggers players. Those Hellbound hearts have been scrapping for top spot on the leaderboards since the wave-survival FPS launched in February 2016, and today I'm delighted to see records are still being set. New hellchamp "Bintr" yesterday survived…

2016 GotY Devil Daggers summoned on GOG

Our favourite game of 2016, Devil Daggers, has escaped the shackles of Steam and is now sold on GOG too. It's not of this world, a brutal score attack arena FPS which swarms with skulls and communicates by roars, hisses, and wibbles. If you're particular about storefronts and have been holding out, get stuck in. Even if you're not into the idea of an intense…

Feature: The best bargains

Steam summer sale: our giant recommendations list

The Steam summer sale is in full blaze. For a while it even blazed so hot that the servers went on fire and all the price stickers peeled off the games. Either that or the store just got swamped with cheapskates looking for the best bargains. Cheapskates like you! Well, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up some recommendations - both general tips and some newly added…

Devil Daggers & Prison Architect In New Humble Bundle

In case you've not picked up on all the hints: Devil Daggers [official site] is my favourite new game of 2016, and I'd say the best-looking game in yonks too. Devil Daggers is Geometry Wars thrown against a satanic altar in a darkened room made of Quake [see me -metaphors ed.]. I do recognise a leaderboard-climbing first-person shooter in skull-filled satanarena is a hard sell…

Devil Daggers Summons New Skulls, Top-Down Replays

New satanskulls are now roaming the darkness of Devil Daggers [official site], thanks to an update launched today. Along with new enemies, the 'V3' update has added a top-down viewing mode for replays, which makes the FPS's arena shoot 'em up stylings even clearer. It's both cool to look at and helpful, as finally I can learn about the horrors I only ever hear behind…

From DOOM ‘Til DUSK: A New ‘Classic’ FPS Murderthon

Hello, murder fans. We’ve already played DOOM and QUAKE and OTHERS, but the demand for caps-locked first-person shooters with gibs and chaos somehow seems to grow. So here is DUSK [official site], an FPS from publisher New Blood, which is paying tribute to the classics of the genre the only way it knows how: by killing everything in sight with shotguns, scythes and explosives. It…

Dark Gift: Devil Daggers Adds New Enemies, Mac Version

It's been almost one day since we last posted about Devil Daggers [official site] and I agree with you: that is too long. And since then, developers Sorath have released a major update for the arena survival FPS. It brings two new enemy variants and fresh new leaderboards to accompany them, a field of view slider, a Mac version, and new ways for cackling skulls…

Satanic Savings: Devil Daggers Is Steam’s Daily Deal

We're awfully fond of Devil Daggers [official site] round here, full of quivering praise for the hellish arena survival shooter and in awe of how good some players are. It's a flipping great video game. But I know some of y'all have reservations - dear, sweet, naive reservations - about a leaderboard-climbing FPS with one mode and one level, and might have looked for it…

Devil Daggers’ New World Record Is Out of This World

If the rest of us keep struggling to surpass the 90 seconds mark, it's because Devil Daggers [official site] wasn't made for me, or for you. It was made for them. Governmental agencies the world over are keeping track of the leaderboards, to identify the first humans to develop super-human abilities and try to contain them before they become self-conscious. Before it's too late. And…

This Is What Being Top Of The Leaderboard In Devil Daggers Looks Like

Devil Daggers is brilliant, as Adam explained in his review. It's a first-person arena shooter with shades of Quake. Part of its appeal is that it doesn't explain anything about how it's overlapping enemies and few systems work, meaning each life and death is a process of discovery. Another part of its appeal, however, is that you can press a button on its leaderboard and…

Not Of This World: Devil Daggers Launching This Month

"Ah, man, I don't know how to start this Devil Daggers post," I grumbled in the RPS treehouse earlier. "I am excited about this game in a way I'm not usually. I often get excited by 'oh yeah, this game does that thing I like in a good way' but this is... it's in my guts, man." Solution: quote that watercooler muttering and roll from…

Unholy Heck! Devil Daggers Sounds Amazing

Hot dang, Devil Daggers [official site] is one of the best-sounding games I've heard in yonks! The circle-strafing, leaderboard-climbing FPS is a heck of a looker, sure, with creatures of tentacle and bone and unfiltered texture rearing out the darkness, but good grief you need to hear this too. Distorted abstract roars and screams and groans and gunshots all come together in a wonderful/terrible soundscape…

Circle-Strafing Shooting: Devil Daggers

Dustforce is a fine platformer but what I've really wanted from developers Team Hitbox is their follow-up Spire, a first-person shoot-o-platformer with skill-based movement inspired by Quake III and all that. Well, now I'm also keeping an eye on Devil Daggers [official], a leaderboardtastic arcade-y FPS made by one Hitboxer and some of his other chums. Here, have a gander at this here trailer:
