Devil Engine by Dangen Entertainment is a beautiful new 2D Shoot ’em Up for the Nintendo Switch and Steam. It could be considered as a spiritual successor or genre-piece tribute to the Thunder Force series, at least if their marketing motto “Lightning Strikes Again” is any sign (Thunder Force/Lightening Force reference).
My Life in Gaming happened upon Devil Engine in Sunday’s stream, and I immediately checked it out on Steam. It does not disappoint. In fact, it may be the greatest new shooter in a while. It has a beautiful 2D art-style that makes perfect use of the horsepower that modern systems offer, and the soundtrack is incredible as well. I am happy to live in a world where games like this continue to be made. RAWK!!!!
