SUFFER Press Release

October 17th, 2018 - Akron, OH - Anarchy Softworks LLC is releasing its first game, SUFFER, for Windows Desktop PCs on December 11th, 2018 via Steam! Set in an abstract dystopia ruled by demons, in SUFFER players become The Spirit of Anarchy to take on the corporate police state with nothing but a ninja sword and a hailstorm of bullets! Boasting “oldschool” PC game difficulty, Suffer is a brutal homage to classic FPS games with a horror-punk twist.

The air is thick with toxic smog, acrid smoke, and bomb shrapnel. State Sentinels and Observers bare down on you, the organic eyes twitching rhythmically to mechanical grinds and clicks as they screech orders through electronic speakers. Unloading every last one of your bullets into these freaks is satisfying, but the Riot Police ahead shoot first and ask questions later - unfortunately for them, a blade through the chest will be the only answer they get.

“My biggest goal with SUFFER was to tell the story of this world purely through the atmosphere and gameplay. There is very little in the way of cutscenes, my focus was to craft a challenging experience where the player would learn by exploring the environment and fighting off enemies. The details are left to the imagination of the player, sort of like the classic games I grew up playing. When the story takes a backseat to engaging gameplay, the mind wanders playfully.”

SUFFER is a game for hardcore gamers in need of a challenge. Injecting fast paced FPS action with ninja-sword-fighting-acrobatics, this throwback to the golden days of PC shooters offers fun, addicting gameplay with a dystopian nightmare theme and punk attitude.
  • Intense Single Player Campaign
  • 75 Handcrafted Levels - Abstract Design Anarchy
  • Brutal difficulty, for those seeking a challenge
  • Colorful Sprite Graphics Inspired By 90's Pixelated Glory
  • Original Punk/Metal Soundtrack
If you are ready to go head-to-head with the demon police state, check out SUFFER on Steam, available December 11th, 2018 for $9.99 but 10% off until December 17th, 2018!

Of Box Art and Steam Releases

Hey friends! Exciting (and super busy) times for me lately. SUFFER is headed to Steam! Special thanks to my dude Brian H who made the original box artwork - he did an amazing job! The game's store page has been submitted for approval and i couldn't be more stoked! i've been hard at work filling out boring forms and doing marketing stuff. This one-man indie dev thing is a lot of work sometimes...

There is a new trailer too! i made this especially for the Steam store page, but you can check it out here if for whatever reason you just can't wait:

Anyways, thanks for reading. Take care of yourselves out there, this place can be brutal.

Love and respect,

SUFFER Original Game Soundtrack OUT NOW!

Hey Friends! i've just finished writing, recording, mixing and mastering the entire SUFFER soundtrack! This has been a serious amount of effort, but i couldn't be happier with the results. The music needed to be ridiculous horror punk/ska and fucking death metal. i won't sit here and write about it anymore, so here is the link for the album, totally free on bandcamp!


 hope you like it!

SUFFER Official Website!

Short post today - i have updated the official SUFFER page on AnarchySoftworks.com. It looks pretty legit, if i do say so myself:


It's kind of a big page, it took me awhile to compress all of the gifs and high quality screenshots. Mobile isn't where i want it yet... But being a one man team means i have to live with not everything being perfect. Thanks for the interest in my games!
