DiscStorm arena combat coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC this summer


Indie game developer XMPT Games and publishing studio Mastertronic are thrilled to #announce fast-paced arena combat #game, #DiscStorm, is coming to Linux, Mac, Windows PC, and PlayStation Vita!

Fast and furious arena-based combat game DiscStorm tests your mettle to the limit as you hurl flying discs that ricochet around the game’s arenas at break-neck speed in your quest to be the finest Disc Master around. Whether you’re lobbing them at an incoming pack of zombies or your best friend’s face, you will need split-second reactions to succeed.

Featuring a wealth of game modes to keep the challenges fresh, DiscStorm is a force to be reckoned with. Choose from classic first-to-ten brawls, tactical games of survival and the dreaded one-hit-kill “Death Disc” mode! Each arena brings its own unique play-style and enemies. Whether it be the laser-shooting Stone Golem in the jungle temple or the lava-spewing Fire Elemental of the volcano lair, exciting new challenges await you at every turn!

Challenge your friends or foes at home or online with intense multiplayer deathmatches and set the leaderboards on fire! Or prove your skills as Disc Master in the single player adventure which will unlock new costumes for the quirky cast of characters, plus diverse environments which come with their own formidable enemies and epic boss fights!

DiscStorm blends ‘90s nostalgia with modern elements. The soundtrack to your battles fuses modern dance trends with retro chiptunes, whilst the artwork blends classic pixel art with high fidelity graphics.



Richard Pilot, Programmer, XMPT Games comments: “DiscStorm began its life as a personal project that I had prototyped one Christmas. The team enjoyed it so much that we decided to approach Mastertronic, who really helped push the game to the next level. It’s been a blast to take it to shows and watch players go through the full spectrum of elation and rage as they battle against their friends! I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks when we release later this year.”

Stuart Morton, Producer, Mastertronic says: “Playing DiscStorm for the first time will have you laughing, crying, swearing and itching for another round. What more could you want from a 4 player battle game? The XMPT Games team have lovingly crafted a frantic arcade arena disc-‘em-up that people will not want to miss come the summer.”


DiscStorm will launch on Linux, Mac, Windows PC, and PlayStation Vita this summer. Can’t wait? Get hands on with the game at EGX Rezzed in London from March 12-14.
