“It’s utterly beautiful, very demanding and oh boy do I ever need it.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“I'm tired of gritty, grumbly first-person shooters. A game that mixes Tron's synth-y style and Bulletstorm's focus on creative kills, though? Now this I can get behind”

“So when a game like DESYNC comes around, with its super sharp low poly look and stylized anaglyphic coloring, you've immediately got my attention.”

About This Game


DESYNC is an intense, single-player first person shooter that begs you to play dangerously and creatively. Eliminate your opponents as you perform violent attack sequences using the explosive digital weaponry and lethal side-arms at your disposal.

Switch weapons and move masterfully to unleash Attack Sequences – special moves that deal bonus damage and effects. Launch an enemy into a trap with a well-placed shotgun blast, then destroy another while they’re in the air. Think quickly and discover new combinations to maximize your score and decimate the leaderboards.


  • Fast, reactive, intense FPS gameplay with a unique combo system
  • Detailed leaderboards for each level help players measure their improvement
  • Sleek poly-neon aesthetics within a foreboding atmosphere
  • Ruthless enemies armed with a variety of defensive and offensive abilities
  • Multiple fire modes on each weapon allow for experimentation and varied playstyles
  • Aberration Zones that subvert and invert the base game for greater challenges
  • Heavy Dark Synth Original Soundtrack by Daniel Deluxe and VolkorX
