Disc Room is an action survival game set in a sprawling intergalactic slaughterhouse. You are a scientist from the future exploring the facility and must get through each room that is filled with sharp discs by running and dodging. You have special abilities that you can call on to help.

As you progress, new abilities are unlocked to further ease the intentionally difficult game. You solve puzzles, survive the rooms, and further the story. Disc Room is a difficult game that like other "bullet hell" games, requires quick thinking and sharp reactions to play. You will die many times but there are settings to help you.

PEGI 16+ for Strong Violence.


There are multiple difficulty adjustments like the overall speed of the game, speed of discs, warnings where traps and discs will spawn, and even the ability to unlock locations and comics to continue the story. There is a setting to change the direction the discs will spin (clockwise or counterclockwise).

Disc Room involves dying a lot, if comic blood is not desired you can turn it off, change the colour of the blood, or turn the blood into confetti. There are areas of the map with Darkness which changes the colour of the screen, this can be changed from a list of preset colours.

You can make the game Low Pressure through settings to slow down game speed, the speed of various game objects as well as the ability to skip rooms and unlock the story without needing to "beat" a room. Makes this an interesting mix of exuberant game that's also low cognitive load if you like.
