15 August 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce Demon Pit – an intense, arcade-style arena shooter launching later this year (Q3/Q4) on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Demon Pit is available to wishlist now on Steam.
An intense arcade-style arena shooter with a classic 90s FPS aesthetic, Demon Pit tests your reflexes against endless waves of the demon horde in a constantly changing arena. Your goal is a high score on the leaderboard, the price is your soul. Far from God’s light, there is only Hell.
A collaboration between DoomCube and Psychic Software, two developers based in Galway, Republic of Ireland, and with music by composer Thomas O’Boyle, Demon Pit is a throwback to the FPS classics of the 1990s. It combines retro-authentic low poly 3D graphics, with uncompromisingly hardcore skill-based gameplay.
“Creating Demon Pit has been an exercise in balancing speed, challenge, purity and chaos,” explains DoomCube’s Paul Conway, artist and designer on Demon Pit. “I want players to fight forward, experiencing its unrelenting pace as they progress through waves of enemies and grasp for their place on the leaderboard.”
