Disc Room Puts Players in an Alien Death Trap This October

Devolver Digital has announced that its next published game Disc Room will be launching for PC and Nintendo Switch. If you enjoy bullet hell games, then this exciting new title may be just the thing for you.

Disc Room puts players in the shoes of a curious scientist in 2089. A disc-shaped alien ship appears above Jupiter and our hearty hero makes the brave decision to explore it. Unfortunately, he quickly learns that this ship is packed to the brim with deadly traps.

Check out all of the carnage of Disc Room in its release date announcement trailer:

A casual glance of what's going on here shows a game that comfortably fits in the bullet hell genre, minus one key fact — the player character doesn't appear to have an ability to shoot back.

Instead, players must deftly navigate the various swirling blades while attempting to solve the puzzle of a particular room. It seems that many of these levels follow some kind of pattern, but it can be pretty easy to get caught up in a tricky situation if you aren't careful. That's especially true on some of the more challenging levels that add faster-moving blades or turn out the lights.

Although players aren't likely to get a gun, they will have some additional ways to defend themselves beyond simply dodging the discs. One of the abilities introduced in the trailer allows players to clone themselves, effectively granting them extra lives.
