Cleaving his way through each stage with dashing scythe slashes, Deff doesn’t let his wheelchair get in the way of carving up the other reapers who’ve given up on their duties.
This grim action game follows Deff, one of the few grim reapers who still seems interested in doing their job. Most of the other reapers have all flaked off, leaving Eternus (the world of the Reapers) without the influx of human souls that powers it. Not that Deff cared all that much until one of these rebel reapers attacked him, leaving him a paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair. Now, he’s in a bit of a lousy mood.
Deff’s new existence has not slowed his reaping abilities down one bit, as the reaper can dash with a scythe attack, flying across its stage through the force of its swing. These attacks can be used to cleave through enemies, grasp targets to skirt over dangerous pitfalls, or move out of the way of incoming attacks. You’ll be using Deff’s speed to outmaneuver his bony enemies, always staying on the move and striking foes too quickly for them to react.
Once you get the hang of movement, you’ll be cutting down the 80’s-themed rebel reapers (why do rebel reapers dig 80’s fashion?) and big bosses with little trouble. Hopefully, it won’t take you too long to teach these upstarts that they need to stop laying about and get back to the honest work of killing people for their souls.
Deff is currently in development, but in the meantime, you can grab a demo from itch.io.
