Feature: Disc can't go unplayed

Disc Room review

I’d put two thumbs up if they weren’t busy dodging jagged platters of death. Disc Room is Nokia’s snake for those who shrug off mortality. Devil Daggers for people who want to set their FOV to 360 degrees. Anyone who has lived for eons in the seven circles of bullet hell might play it happily and shelve it alongside some good ones. It might even…

Disc Room launches its hectic death traps on October 22nd

Disc Room, the very frightening series of deadly rooms full of circular sawblades, fires up the player grinder later this month. October does seem like the proper time for all that slice-y gore, sure enough. Devolver Digital have announced that you can begin dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodging through the game on October 22nd.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Sludge Life are free on the Epic Games Store

So long, Civilization. The latest freebie over on the Epic Games Store is Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, a rather handsome pairing of two Borderlands games to blast your way through without dropping a penny. But Epic's feeling generous this week - today also marks the surprise release of grimy graffiti sandbox Sludge Life, and this filthy bonus is going free for quite a bit longer…

Tag your way to the top of Sludge Life’s filthy little island this Spring

Sludge Life is a damn good name for anything, honestly. But it's an even better moniker for Devolver Digital's latest reveal. A slimey lo-fi open world riot, Sludge Life is a filthy collaboration between developer Terri Vellman and music man Doseone, the folks behind supernatural shootout High Hell. Tag your way to the top, tear down your corporate overlords, or kick back and grab a…

Devolver Digital announce a buzz saw bullet hell called Disc Room

Has science gone too far? If there's just a bunch of buzz saws flying around a room that you for some reason willingly walked into, I'll argue yes. Devolver Digital announced Disc Room today, a gore-y new game where you're a scientist who's had the rat in a maze paradigm flipped on them. Now you get to find your way through a maze of rooms…

Lurid rooftop rampage High Hell is out now

High Hell is a game that just screams Devolver. While the indie publisher may not produce much directly, they have curated a house style that is unmistakable. Lurid colours, offbeat (and often crude) humor, low-fi graphics and deep, bassy beats. Developed by Terri Vellmann of Heavy Bullets and with a soundtrack from rapper Doseone (Enter The Gungeon, Gun Godz, Samurai Gunn - he likes guns),…

High Hell kicking many doors in later this year

There's something in the air: flying doors kicked clean off their hinges. Ground Shatter announced "co-op buddy cop shooter" Rico [official site] in June, showing off kicked doors aplenty, and today Devolver Digital announced High Hell in a shower of splintering doors. I don't believe they planned it but I certainly can stand it. Isn't the true dream of a post-scarcity, post-singularity future to live…

Explore an island of garbage in Mundo Lixo

Ashes to ashes, dustbin to dustbin. I reach you today through future garbage, a screen upon a device you will one day discard. You are reading this no doubt surrounded by more future garbage, wearing clothes you will cast away and sitting on a chair you will chuck. And let's not forget 'tis the season to show friends and family our love through gifts of…

Have You Played… Heavy Bullets?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.Six bullets in the cylinder of a snubnosed revolver is a good limitation to build a roguelikelike around. That's Heavy Bullets [official site], an FPS kicking you into a procedurally-generated indoor jungle with only six bullets. You can collect and reuse your bullets, but…

Six Shots: Heavy Bullets Is A Roguelike-like FPS

The revolver's an ideal weapon for a roguelike-like: high damage, low capacity, slow to reload, and awfully cool. Three attributes that make it dovetail nicely with the caution, conservation, and permadeath one expects from the genre, plus a little radness as a treat. Heavy Bullets gives you a chunky revolver and six bullets--and only six. They're special bullets you can collect and reuse, granted, but…
