Kongregate, known as a flash-gaming website and more recently as a game publisher and creator of online storefront Kartridge, announced it will publish a new game called Hell is Other Demons.
Hell is Other Demons will arrive on PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch this April. It will launch on Kongregate's Kartridge service as well as Steam. The unique title of this self-described "bullet hell platformer" is reflective in its gameplay. Players jump from platform to platform in a pixelized 2D arenas.
Developed by Cuddle Monster Games, in Hell is Other Demons players are armed with guns that can take out enemies, but you can also jump on top of foes to damage or kill them and keep dodging mid-air attacks. The emphasis here is on platforming, with levels containing various areas to land on and continue the fight. There's an "extensive" campaign according to the press release, as well as various bosses to fight. You can find some of these bosses in the gameplay trailer below. There's also an endless Arcade Mode in Hell is Other Demons.
The art direction looks intriguing with its muted, darker colors and projectiles and enemies acting as a high contrast to the foreground and background. The soundtrack is composed by Rémi Gallego known for composing Hacknet's soundtrack and is part of the electronic group The Algorithm. Magnus Pålsson, who composed the soundtrack for VVVVVV, is doing the sound effects for this title.
Kongregate, the publisher for this title, has recently expanded into the online storefront market. Kartridge is a curated PC game platform where players can earn badges and chat while playing titles such as Hell is Other Demons.
