Disc Room looks like Smash TV, but every enemy is a buzzsaw

Survive the sawblades and unravel the mystery

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Devolver Digital’s latest game, Disc Room, is a run-based action-adventure in which players must navigate and survive rooms filled with deadly sawblades. It’s a fast-paced, top-down hardcore game for Windows PC, that’s reminiscent of classic arcade game Smash TV.

Players can use a special dash move, to save themselves from danger, but otherwise need to sprint around rooms, attempting to survive. Screenshots for the game show a timer, which players presumably need to outlast to win the room. Other rooms include puzzles and locked doors.

Disc Room’s trailer shows a variety of buzzsaws of different sizes and behaviors, including some that move erratically, and even buzzsaw bosses. “The rooms in Disc Room are unique challenges of increasing complexity,” according to a Devolver Digital tweet. “Some are built around devious puzzles to unwrap, solve, and survive.”

According to the game’s Steam page, Disc Room’s developers — Kitty Calis, Jan Willem Nijman, Terri Vellmann, and Doseone — will launch the game sometime this year.
