'The Devil Within: Satgat' Comes to Steam Early Access In April - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 14, 2024 @ 2:02 p.m. PDT

The Devil Within: Satgat is a 2.5D side-scrolling action/adventure that follows the journey of an Eastern warrior infected with demonic blood.

Play as Rip Kim, a powerful warrior who’s the last of his kind. Journey through the dark and twisted levels of a ruined world in order to uncover secrets and vanquish evil spirits.

Featuring gorgeous art, stylish combat, and metroidvania elements, The Devil Within: Satgat is a side-scrolling adventure with a sinister soul. A once-peaceful world has been overrun with evil spirits, destroying much of the environment. Creatures of all kinds lurk, ready for a fight. Travel through the world striking down enemies one by one, gaining new abilities along the way. 

The Devil Within: Satgat invites players to venture deep into the vast interconnected maps. From decaying urban sewers to frigid mountains and dense forests, every area is an opportunity to uncover secrets, get upgrades, and defeat bosses. Learn amazing skills and use special weapons obtained from evil spirits.

As players progress throughout the levels, a more ominous story emerges. As Kim continues killing evil spirits, he realizes an uncomfortable truth: the best way of vanquishing these spirits is to harness their energy for himself. With each kill, he absorbs more and more power, gaining new abilities. Journey further into the dark corners of the world to discover how to control an increasingly evil body. 

Are you brave enough to search for the devil within?
