Publisher Dangen Entertainment and developer Protoculture Games announced the side-scrolling shoot ’em up, Devil Engine, will launch for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC in 2019.

Here is an overview of the game:

A last ditch effort to destroy what was once to be our savior. A final mission to eliminate a disastrous future. A single ship against Earth’s entire military. The Andraste is the only hope to defeat…the Devil Engine.


Devil Engine is a high octane, classic styled side scrolling shoot-em-up heavily influenced by the best in the genre from the 32-bit era, featuring a variety of incredible locations, hand drawn pixel art, and a blood-pumping soundtrack that brings the dark future to life.

Key Features:

  • Use three shot types with unique bombs to destroy everything in your path.
  • Build a point multiplying combo with careful play and expend it with a bullet absorbing burst.
  • Compete across eight game modes for score supremacy.
  • Leave a wave of carnage across 6 incredibly detailed stages.
  • Points aren’t just for collecting! Spend your accumulated points to unlock in-game shaders, additional music, stages and playable ships.
  • Featuring pulse pounding music tracks composed by famed shmup composer Hyakutarou Tsukumo.
