Brutal 2D Slasher Demon Skin Gets an April Release Date

Demon Skin Release Date

Buka Entertainment and LUDUS FUTURE has announced the release date of their upcoming 2D hack-n-slash title Demon Skin. Demon Skin is slated for release on PC on April 13, 2021, and it will release on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year. Demon Skin is a brutal hack-and-slash that offers 2D gameplay with a challenging combat system. Set in a harsh dark fantasy world, the game will test your will and skill against deadly environments and towering enemies.

In the game, you accept a position amongst the Order of Wanderers and become a demon slayer armed with axe and sword. The game throws hordes of demon and sinister masters at you and it will be your job to slay them all. You will have multiple combat moves at your disposal such as parrying incoming attacks, dodge traps, and out-sprint annihilation in hostile worlds. The game also comes with an intuitive combat stance system and allows you to loot demon dead bodies for new weapons and combos.

The project lead Denis Listov details that he first came up with the idea back in 2014 however he had no prior development experience however he started to learn development and made the game later with different problems still lining up in his path such as the transition from 2D to 3D models, switching game engines, rebranding and much more. He details in the official press release:

Everyone told me that if I want to do something right, I have to learn how to do it by myself. That to create a game I’d have to master programming, animation and other stuff as well. Not to mention other development tasks that needed to be done. Sure, I could have started with something less complicated, but this game was the only thing I could think about.
