Summary

I don’t even know what genre to put Disc Room in? Maybe disc porn? Death simulator? At any rate, the game is one that is clearly made by complete fucking sadists! You must run around a room and avoid the ever-advancing discs of doom (saw blades) that inhabit every room. Over time more obstacles will greet you like the floor becoming a monster or a big boss fight! It all sounds mental, right? Well times it by 10 and you have the first few rooms of Disc Room! You will be given at least one mission for a room like survive for X amount of time or defeat a boss or stay in an area which once done will open a door to the next room, occasionally you will find rooms take multiple plays just because the game clearly fucking hates you. I for one am all for this sadistic gameplay as the game just plays so well and looks incredible, within minutes you can rack up double-digit kills and colorful swear words. Disc Room is a complete package that will delight and destroy you in equal measure.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
