Publisher Devolver Digital and developers Terri Vellmann, Doseone, Kitty Calis, and Jan Willem Nijman have announced Disc Room, a game whwre players must survive a series of rooms full of deathly discs. It will launch for console and PC via Steam in 2020.
Here is an overview of the game, via Devolver Digital:
The year is 2089, and a giant disc has appeared in orbit of Jupiter. A crew of international scientists is formed in a desperate attempt to understand the mysterious secrets contained within.
Step into the oversized space suit of a brave but reluctant scientist and explore this sprawling slaughterhouse from outer space. Attempt to discover the method behind its madness as you are relentlessly chased down by intelligent alien saw blades amid a seemingly endless labyrinth of interconnected death chambers. Stay sharp in order to navigate this murderous maze, as the seemingly straightforward slaughter unfurls into far more puzzling complexity.
But, what kills you only makes you stronger.
Absorb extraordinary abilities from the very discs that dice you into pieces. Invincibly dash, bend time, even clone yourself as you become one with the disc. Persistent punishment quickly solidifies into razor-sharp survival skills, as our scientist dies their way toward the deeper more devastating purpose of the disc.
In Disc Room, the only way out is through Death.
In a press release, Devolver Digital president Fork Parker said, “I don’t understand any of this shit.”
Disc Room will be playable at PAX East 2020, which runs from February 27 to March 1 at the Boston Convention Center.
