Hell Is Other Demons

Kongregate has announced another game for the Nintendo Switch: Hell Is Other Demons, a lightning-fast bullet hell platformer by Cuddle Monster Games. It will be released later this year, in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

This arcade shooter is driven by quick, creative gameplay that rewards fast decision making and faster reflexes. Jump into the hooves of a demon out to kill a bunch of other demons as you progress through an extensive campaign and dominate wonderfully over-the-top bosses. In addition to the pulse-pounding maximalism of the campaign, fans of classic, high-score based arcade games will find a cozy home in Arcade Mode, which offers unlimited, procedurally generated action and endless replayability.

Hell is Other Demons’ bold colors and chunky pixels are backed up by a heavy synthwave soundtrack composed by Rémi Gallego, of The Algorithm, and retro sound effects by Magnus Pålsson, composer of the VVVVVV OST.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

It is 1873. An escaped slave is slowly walking through the desert, making his way from Mexico to Texas. He keeps a revolver close and is wearing the sombrero stolen from a dead man.

– Deadly gunfights: You’ll need to cock the revolver with one trigger before being able to shoot by pressing another trigger. One false move and you’ll be overrun in an instant.
– Authentic weapons: Winchesters, double-barreled guns, revolvers and Gatling guns will gladly help you to destroy all of the gringos. By the way, we have a RAT with dynamite.
– An enthralling story: Live through the journey of an escaped Mexican prisoner fighting for survival and freedom in the 1870’s in the United States.
– Choose your style: You can choose to take a more stealthy approach to surprise your enemies, or even just sneak straight past them.
– A splendid art style: The game is drawn by hand with pen and paper to create an interesting visual experience.
– Setting: Real places and towns, the spirit of the desert and the most desperate bandidos of the district will help you to plunge into the breathing and cruel world of the Wild West.
– Upgrades: You’ll find breastplates that will have a 50% chance to deflect some bullets, a fast recharging skill that will allow the hero to insert 2 bullets at once, extreme accuracy (less spread for your shots), being able to kill an enemy in stealth without attracting the unwanted attention of his friends, and more!
