Devil Daggers: a gothic arcade FPS spooking up Steam Greenlight

Devil Daggers

It's an arena-y survival game rather than a Hexen-like, level-based exploratory shooter, but that disappointment aside, Devil Daggers looks like a right treat. You're the owner of a magic hand that fires energy at beautifully pixellated hellbeasts, in this upcoming arcade FPS made by one of Hitbox Team (they made Dustforce) and a few others. Here's why I'm excited (via RPS):

Devil Daggers is on Steam Greenlight here, and I wonder how many milliseconds until it gets the go-ahead. It's out later this year, and developer Sorath says it's a "fast-paced shooter that pits you against legions of demons as you struggle to survive as long as you can. Compete for precious seconds with friends or on global leaderboards".

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
