SUFFER 2 is Out Now On Steam!

Hello Friends!

I'm extremely proud to announce that SUFFER 2 is officially live on Steam!

This game has been in development for over two years and I believe it is a huge improvement over the original! The music, graphics, and sound have all been vastly improved and I've learned so much about level design since the original that these new stages are my best yet. The game works great on Valve's Steam Deck and plays perfectly even on older hardware. 

If you haven't played the original you won't feel lost if you start with SUFFER 2 - this is a boomer shooter first and the story is very light. The Leviathan Government has taken control and destroyed the world! It's up to The Spirit of Anarchy to end their tyranny with ninja swords and extreme firepower! With 5 difficulty settings and 39 levels there is plenty of content here to keep you coming back for more SUFFER!

Thank you to everyone for the support over the years. This game is my best yet and I hope you all enjoy it. I have some future updates planned but right now I'm focused on getting this one out there to the players. It's way more polished than the original and I am incredibly happy with how it turned out.

Thank you :)

SUFFER on the Steam Deck!

Hey friends!

I'm happy to announce that SUFFER works great on Valve's Steam Deck!


I've spent a bit of time updating the official artwork to support the Steam Deck and I feel pretty good about how it looks in my Library. There won't be any additional updates for this game as I've moved onto development of the sequel, but I'm happy to see new hardware bring life to this old game! The "pick up and play" nature of SUFFER's short, action-packed levels make it a great game to play on the go or just a quick level or two on the couch. I'm surprised by how well it plays with Valve's handheld controls, especially since I'm a keyboard/mouse kind of guy! It's been years since I've booted up the original SUFFER so I found myself pleasantly surprised by how I was sucked right back into the hectic gameplay. The speakers also blew me away, the basslines and guitar insanity sound surprisingly great coming out of this "little" handheld device. It's definitely a cut above a smartphone or laptop. I'm glad I invested in the Steam Deck, I've got nothing negative to say about it. I'm still in awe that my game, developed completely for the Windows platform and years before the Steam Deck was even announced, works without any development effort on my part. Truly amazing!


SUFFER plays so great on this bad boi that I plan on targeting this hardware specifically for SUFFER 2. I'll be looking at getting the UI artwork to support the 16:10 aspect ratio and possibly even tinker with the controls to take advantage of the Steam Deck's features. I'll keep you posted on SUFFER 2 soon, I promise! :)

As always, thank you so much for all of the support throughout the years. Making this game has been an awesome experience!

SUFFER 2 Demo Music Tracks

 Hey friends!

The SUFFER 2 soundtrack is coming along nicely. I've been busy writing and recording horror punk songs but I wanted to give everyone a preview! The theme is something like a punk show during a demonic invasion. Live music is a crime but the Spirit of Anarchy is always accompanied by a righteous cacophony of electric mayhem. I hope you enjoy this sneak peak!


These tracks are still demos, the mix is not final and there is no mastering. They will be featured in the upcoming public beta release for SUFFER 2, so I figured they were fine to tease everyone with! There will be more tracks in the beta and even more tracks in the final game. I plan on recording about an hour of music for SUFFER 2. I also plan on doing some write-up about the gear I use to make the music in the future, maybe even do some videos. Anyways, it's been awhile since I've done any updates on SUFFER 2, so I'll leave you with this:

DRM Free Options for SUFFER

Hey friends!

It's been quite awhile since I've posted a blog update, but I have some news worth sharing! If you want to grab a copy of SUFFER but don't want to go through Steam, now there are other options.

SUFFER is available on itch.io!

And also on GameJolt!

I plan on publishing all future Anarchy Softworks titles to these two indie game stores, as well as on Steam. Options are good and I am excited to reach new people through these mediums!

SUFFER is officially finished, I won't be adding any more updates to it (version 1.4 is the final cut!) because I've started working on the sequel - SUFFER 2! It's still fairly early in development but it's going to be bigger and better than the original in every way. Stay tuned for more updates, but I do have a teaser here:

Thank you to everyone for all of the support, making games is super fun and I will continue doing it.
