Players can harvest demonic crystals to increase the power of the daggers, and use them as shot attacks or in a rapid fire fashion. Players can compete with friends via the game's leaderboard system in a bid to survive the longest. In addition, the game's movement system allows for circle strafing, bunny hopping, and dagger jumps.

Devil Daggers is "inspired by 1990s FPS and arcade games." The game is powered by a custom built engine and will support "hundreds" of flocking enemies that avoid each other, of which there will be 13 different types.

Devil Daggers will be $4.99/£3.99 at launch. The game will be released via Steam.

If there was ever a game worthy of the waning about games causing seizures this would be the one. This almost gave me vertigo lol.

The sound design is particularly eerie. Playing this in the dead of night for many hours has got to lead to some sort of damage. Looks interesting if, like others have said, it has more levels and some sort of a story???

That hand definitely doesn't need to pulse, unless they were going to create this for red/green 3D glasses.

It looks fun, but if it's just that single level high score type of thing, meh.

Well that looks fun, hope comes to consoles. Probably be at least $5 more expensive if it does but I'd support it.

If you would have shown this to me without any titles, I would've said it is a tech demo.
