Play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to aid one stinking demon-infested town, you are immediately – and deservedly – cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons… Poof!

About This Game

Or so thought world-famous demon hunter Doug McGrave, until he met the witch from Hellside. Now, cursed to do what’s right for free, his powers constantly draining away, Doug will have to win his power back.

Never slow down. Slow is how the curse takes hold!!

The Weaponographist is a high-speed, top-down dungeon-crawling arena combat game. Cool kids might call it a “Roguelike”.

You play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to aid one stinking demon-infested town, you are immediately – and deservedly – cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons… Poof! Gone. To overcome the curse, you’ll need to make use of whatever weapons you can find.
Swords, chainsaws, machine guns, pogo sticks… Use them while you can.
Because they’ll all fall apart in your hands.

I can’t think of a curse that ever did anyone any good. And this one, doubly so.

Fill up your combo meter by defeating evil, vanquish demons to regain your strength, and weaken the curse while you can. But beware.
Whenever you aren’t attacking, your combo will quickly drain away, and the curse will continue to sap your strength. Only by killing monsters quickly, adapting to new weapons, and removing the curse in pieces can Doug make his way through the depths of the dungeon and get the hell out of this one-horse town.

-Roguelike adventure in a fast-paced arena filled with a variety of creatures to kill.
-Pulse-pounding weapon swaps requiring constant adaptation to defeat the enemy swarms.
-A frantic paced curse requiring constant engagement to catch and surpass the difficulty curve.
-Copious demon gore and goop to trade with Hellside vendors for powerful upgrades.
-Epic soundtrack from Christopher Hoag.

Go forth, kill a bunch of things, and don’t even feel bad.
-The Weaponographist

A bold take on a hunger clock, and one clearly aimed at tempting folks with even an inclination of a speed running persuasion.   Could well be interesting depending on how things shake out going forward post-release...
