Demons Ate My Neighbors!

Turned-Out Games have launched the Kickstarter campaign for Demons Ate My Neighbors!, a retro-inspired, thrilling roguelite shooter. It runs until October 15th, with the main goal set at $199 100 ($6 676 pledged as of writing). Click here to check out the Kickstarter page for the game!

Here’s some details and screenshots (trailer can be found on the Kickstarter page):

Demons Ate My Neighbors! features full two-player couch co-op full of surprises – including the antagonizing Mr. Out!! Voiced by everyone’s favorite ‘90s party monster. This TV-faced enigma is always watching, so players may want to purify the possessed with a pal instead of playing home, alone. The Big Bad ‘Wolf Among Us’ lead voice actor Adam Harrington howls as Sheriff Pickens, while Sonic Mania composer Tee Lopes leads the jammin’ soundtrack with platinum record producer Varien and New York Rapper Papoose

1991’s summer scorches the sleepy Fairweather Valley suburbs. April, a posh bad-ass city girl, and Joey, a delinquent with a heart of gold, looked forward to chilling before a cursed VHS made summer school somehow worse and unleashed the collective nightmares of their generation upon their helpless burb. Totally uncool.

Grab a partner, a trusty Splasha holy squirt gun and pump it to build up pressure for maximum demon drenching, or Overpump it for a massive splash blast to soak the spawn of evil. Swap nozzles to change attack patterns and level up your stats with Nitro Splashtanks and other household upgrades found along the ever-changing way.

Never get lost with the RadWatch – the Radical Radar Radio watch built to track the VHS villains who stand between April, Joey and their summer, powered by the demonic energy enemies release when liberated from their wack monster bodies. Spray, pray, and find the way.

Possessed neighbors leave the pair with only three choices: DAMN, DELIVER, or DIE. Defeat Tuned-Out Citizens with lethal weaponry to DAMN them forever, or drain their recharging stamina with a sanctified Splasha arsenal to DELIVER them from evil. Infinite rewinds encourage different tactics, so play nice or tear up the neighborhood while collecting VHS tokens from bosses to unlock permanent upgrades for future attempts.

Help bring to life an homage to campy cool ‘80s / ‘90s teen horror and classic gaming where 16-bit characters merge seamlessly into a top-down 3D world.

Demons Ate My Neighbors! (Switch – eShop) is slated for a Q4 2021 release in Europe and North America. It will be playable in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Japanese.
