Slay demons with your friends!


Taipei, May 10, 2024
Call your friends! Onigiri is announcing that the demo version of Dark Samurai will be released on May 10, 2024.
Dark Samurai, a roguelike horde survival game with permanent progression, a persistent open world, quests, and online co-op, set in feudal Japan overrun by demons.
Demo Content
  • Two playable characters with unique abilities. Play as samurai and slay demons with your katana or play as archer and hunt demons from afar.
  • Seven distinct weapons. Swing your katana, throw shuriken, charge up your power-shot, bring explosives, or tap into chakra magic.
  • Thirty unique upgrades. Enhance damage, range, and critical strikes as you level up. Slash and shoot faster, perhaps even duplicate yourself.
  • Additional permanent upgrades. After every run, increase your abilities to slay even more demons next time.
Transparent Development
The demo is just a small preview of the game. Onigiri aims to be as transparent as possible about the development process. Follow along on the Dark Samurai Trello board for more information on work-in-progress tasks.
