Or so thought world-famous demon hunter Doug McGrave, until he met the witch from Hellside. Now, cursed to do what’s right for free, his powers constantly draining away, Doug will have to win his power back.

Never slow down. Slow is how the curse takes hold!!

The Weaponographist is a high-speed, top-down dungeon-crawling arena combat game. Cool kids might call it a “Roguelike”.

You play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to aid one stinking demon-infested town, you are immediately – and deservedly – cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons… Poof! Gone. To overcome the curse, you’ll need to make use of whatever weapons you can find.
Swords, chainsaws, machine guns, pogo sticks… Use them while you can.
Because they’ll all fall apart in your hands.

I can’t think of a curse that ever did anyone any good. And this one, doubly so.

Fill up your combo meter by defeating evil, vanquish demons to regain your strength, and weaken the curse while you can. But beware.
Whenever you aren’t attacking, your combo will quickly drain away, and the curse will continue to sap your strength. Only by killing monsters quickly, adapting to new weapons, and removing the curse in pieces can Doug make his way through the depths of the dungeon and get the hell out of this one-horse town.

  • Roguelike adventure in a fast-paced arena filled with a variety of creatures to kill.
  • Pulse-pounding weapon swaps requiring constant adaptation to defeat the enemy swarms.
  • A frantic paced curse requiring constant engagement to catch and surpass the difficulty curve.
  • Copious demon gore and goop to trade with Hellside vendors for powerful upgrades.
  • Epic soundtrack from Christopher Hoag.

Go forth, kill a bunch of things, and don’t even feel bad.

The Weaponographist reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Everyone knows that currently indie projects are very popular and The Weaponographist was no exception. What is The Weaponographist so good and interesting? First, it is a game in the genre of Roguelike, which is already important. Second, the gameplay keeps you in suspense every second. The storyline Begins with the fact that our arrogant protagonist Doug Mcgrave was cursed by a witch. Now to lift the curse, our hero must save the city from Demons. Your path starts from the city to the so-called depths. In Other words, the depths of this arena where you will fight with the demons, and in the final room with the boss. You have to fight in the desert, wild forests, in the walls of medieval buildings and even in the hell. After all the difficult trials you will learn the fate of our arrogant hero. The Gameplay begins to tighten immediately after the first hit on the demon. Since the Witch Cursed our hero, we now have weapons exclusively for a while. Not Only that the armament is temporary so still it and you can not choose, and settle for that fell from the defeated enemy. Relax during the battle you do not get, and if you still decide to take a chance and give yourself a slack, find yourself in a tavern. Accordingly, with each level of complexity begins to grow gradually, and if you did not pump runes, weapons, magic then will be all pretty deplorable. With each new entering into the depths, the locations are generated differently, which does not make the game monotonous and at the same time easy. Also a little variety in the gameplay make the achievements of Steam. Improve weapons, runes, magic, skills that's what will haunt our hero in the process of the whole story. Weapons in the game quite a lot, such as an ancient sword, elven bow, chainsaw, submachine gun, Slingshot, and many others. Runes give the speed of running, additional health, doubled attack on time, and they will appear mainly in the running chest. The Magic here is small and it is not very effective, for example, there is a ring of fire, a head of a banshi, a powder barrel. Skills in the game too small, but unlike the magic they are of great value. To improve all of the above you need mucus that falls from our opponents in the arena. Also enemies that lie in wait, our hero in the depths I divided into three types of ordinary enemies, mages, bosses. Ordinary enemies can, deliver you a lot of trouble, if they do not kill in time among them you meet knights, gangsters, centaurs, archers. Mages have a remote attack that allows them to inflict damage on you without hindrance. There are not many Bosses in the game, but I assure you that you will remember them for a long time. Of Course, the game has disadvantages, such as the lack of multiplayer, mode of joint passage. Also lacks the locations on which the battle is possible, Steam Workshop would have corrected this. Lack of diversity after passing there is no motivation to play further. Just One main character, for which you can play. The game is very beautiful and pleasing to the eye picture especially it stands out against the backdrop of locations where the battle, as well as the city that we protect. The Musical accompaniment fits perfectly into the overall dynamics of the game. To summarize, it can be said that it is a good game with its abundance cons. If you are not a very strong PC or you are a fan of the genre Roguelike then The Weaponographist is what you need. Pros Exciting Gameplay Peculiar plot of a Large number of enemies, weapons, locations Beautiful graphics Achieve Steam Low price product Cons Lack of multiplayer and mode of co-game is Not available Steam Workshop Monotony Low Number of magical abilities 7/10 * To familiarize with the game, the key provided by the developer.
