'Disco Elysium' (ALL) Celebrates 1st Anniversary With Sale, Langauge Feature, Game Boy Port

Disco Elysium is a blend of isometric RPG and hard-boiled cop show set in a unique urban fantasy world.

What kind of cop are you? Good cop? Bad cop? Utter failure? That is the question explored in Disco Elysium.

You play a disgraced lieutenant detective in Revachol West, a shore town where corruption’s out of control, murders go unsolved, and the kids just wanna dance. Kick in doors, interrogate suspects, or get lost exploring a gorgeously rendered city and unraveling its mysteries. All the while, tensions rise around you as Revachol threatens to explode.

Disco Elysium’s completely original skill system makes your innermost feelings, doubts, and memories an integral part of every conversation. Level up your rational faculties, sharpen your wits, or give in to your basest instincts. What kind of cop you are is up to you.

It’s been one year since we were introduced to the city of Revachol and its unforgettable characters. For players who haven’t had the chance to enter the dark and intriguing world of Disco Elysium and solve its mysteries, ZA/UM is offering a -30% discount on Steam from today and ending on 26th October 2020.

“We’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the game over the last year,” said Mikk Metsniit, Head of Publishing at ZA/UM. “We’ve had such an overwhelmingly positive response to Disco Elysium and this last year has been a radical journey for the whole team. We really appreciate everyone who has played the game and are really grateful to our amazing fan base.”

An update for Disco Elysium today also introduced a brand new language switching feature in game, which allows for seamless language switching anywhere in game at the tap of a button. During dialogue, players can now switch to and from any language in an instant.

And in console news..?

OK, so it’s not the console announcement you’re expecting but we think this 90s throwback is pretty cool! Disco Elysium fan Colin Brannan has made a port of the first part of the game for Nintendo Game Boy, which can be played online on browser or mobile, but can even be downloaded as a ROM and played on an actual Game Boy.

Game Features:

  • A massive, open-ended case you can solve however you choose.
  • An utterly unique urban fantasy setting where bell-bottoms meet muzzle-loaders.
  • Set-piece combat sequences you can avoid or dive into at your peril.
  • A character system that lets you build your own cop persona with 24 colorful, psychological skills.
  • Ditch your cop uniform for real disco threads to impress, intimidate, or seduce.
  • An inventory of your thoughts where you can research clues and then put them to use in the game.
  • Original score by the rock’n’roll band British Sea Power.

Disco Elysium is currently available for PC (Steam and, and coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One at a later time
