Indie developer Strange Scaffold has announced Teenage Demon Slayer Society, a stylish new character action/tactics game.
Teenage Demon Slayer Society is in development for Windows PC (via Steam) with a release set for sometime in early 2024.
“It’s 2023, and I’m tired,” says creative director Xalavier Nelson Jr. with a thousand yard-stare into a nearby coffee mug. “Every time I try and play a new strategy game, there’s a good hour or more of tutorials I have to go through first. I’m excited to make a tactics game that finally welcomes you to just smash some stuff as soon as you open it. Then you get to save the world! All to pumping lo-fi beats, of course.”
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Teenage Demon Slayer Society is a new kind of turn-based game – an innovative character action tactics remix that transfers the vibrant gameplay of action classics like Devil May Cry into a fresh, kinetic, accessible format.
Use the abilities of eccentric, well-meaning teens to slice, batter, and annihilate supernatural creatures with style. Unravel the secrets of demonkind in a world where New Jersey never existed, and adolescent heroes are the one thing between us and eternal destruction.
S-rank a multitude of bespoke character campaigns, each showcasing a new story in the quiet town of Fall Rapids. And avoid the bitter rage of Pops, owner of the local diner that continues to attract demonic attacks despite his best efforts, and the increasing suspicion of his insurance company.
- Multiple playable characters, each with a unique moveset, perspective, and catalog of powerful actions.
- Fast-paced character action tactics, perfect for both turn-based veterans and people who just want to hit things.
