Co-op survival horrors seem to be coming thick and fast during this pandemic. It makes sense - they are games relatively easy to make and pull in a few hours of multiplayer fun during these trying times. DEVOUR feels like another one of those games that we can pick up, have a few jump-scares, a couple of chuckles, and leave it all behind.

DEVOUR looks like it wants to offer more than just a minimalist survival horror, though. There's a thick narrative around the game, supplemented with more detailed visuals to serve the plotline justice. Maybe the game is a starting point for an evolution in the constant wheel of samey indie survival horror games? Only one way to find out, join the cult.

Stop the Evil, Save the World

DEVOUR is a 1-4 player coop game that encourages you to play with friends. Though you can play solo, you just don't get the same enjoyment out of it without others. As an indie survival horror game, you can be assured that three things will be present in the gameplay. Those are jump-scares, interactions with one horrible monster, and short playthroughs.

You've probably guessed DEVOUR has them all. So what sets it apart from any other survival horror game? Well, not a lot, all things considered. However, we'll argue in favor of the game that the quality seems to trump the majority of the stack. The narrative does create engagement, the objectives are enthralling, and the scares are legit.

Yes, DEVOUR is short, sometimes it seems a little gimmicky, but players won't feel like they've been taken for a ride. It's a game where you can indeed enjoy for a few hours and share the experience of breaking the demon's hold on the possessed cultists. As far as what you have to do, we'll leave that to you not to spoil the thrills!

The benefit is that it does have some replayability, and the gameplay is polished, which is an admirable feat. The problem is that it isn't the memorable survival horror it tries to be. It's not a benchmark for evolution in the series, nor will it lead to bigger and better things. DEVOUR is just a decent multiplayer survival horror game.

Unleash Your Inner Demons

So, is DEVOUR worth the investment? Well, you can't say no. The game's price point is very reasonable, almost like it knew it would be one of those single-evening party games. However, you can't go into the game with high expectations. It's not a survival horror game made to last like Dead by Daylight.


Regardless, DEVOUR is accessible to the masses. If you can tolerate jump scares, you'll be able to play without issues. Get your friends around, grab some popcorn, and be entertained at how everyone handles the horrific challenges in the game. Just don't expect that you'll be playing the game beyond a few hours.
