Demonic spies and scouts lurk in the secret corners of Medieval Europe, furthering the plots and schemes of Satan's generals. You are a Demonslayer, and your duty is to thwart their plans for a grand invasion of the mortal world. Whether armed with light and fire or steel and skill, you must ferret out their hiding places and drive them screaming back to Hell!

Play options


As of the most recent version, Meat Arena will only work on Linux - and maybe not even that.


Hellmouth is running on my server, though it's not guaranteed to be up to date with trunk.
