Indie publisher Digerati confirmed the recently announced arena shooter Demon Pit will launch on Steam (Windows) on 17th October. The console versions (Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One) will follow at a still-to-be-confirmed date.
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.”
