Adolescent strategy game Teenage Demon Slayer Society coming from Strange Scaffold

That’s a lot of words

Strange Scaffold has announced another title in their stable of upcoming games, Teenage Demon Slayer Society. It’s currently only announced for PC and only has a release window of 2024.

Teenage Demon Slayer Society bills itself as “a bold new turn-based take on character action games, featuring style ranks, customizable movesets, and cool, endearing characters.” Strangely, my brain can make sense of that salad of descriptors, which is sad, because I get confused when paperwork asks for my address.

A trailer dropped alongside the announcement, showing off the game’s style. I dig it. I like turn-based strategy that involves exactly one character. It’s not really all that much different than moving a bunch of characters around, but it makes me feel cool.

Real demons

Since Strange Scaffold is best known for An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs and Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator, Teenage Demon Slayer Society kind of blows my mind. Those two games employ more of a jank-pop aesthetic, whereas this one looks more like a stylish anime. It makes sense, though, since Japan is the only place where teenagers fight demons anymore. Actual sexy demons, I mean. Not like alcoholism or the imaginary kind that televangelists and Alex Jones shout at you about.

This is also quite the pace that Strange Scaffold has going on. It’s the development label of Xalavier Nelson Jr., whose work extends to a number of other great games beyond Strange Scaffold and into places like Hypnospace Outlaw. It feels like An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs was released yesterday, but because time has no meaning, it was actually 2021. Still, Teenage Demon Slayer Society joins Sunshine Shuffle and El Paso, Elsewhere in upcoming titles from the developer.

Teenage Demon Slayer Society is Currently only announced for PC. It is targeting a 2024 release.
