Book of Demons is an upcoming, deck-building hack and slash adventure, where it's the player who decides the length of quests. The game is the first installment of Return 2 Games - a series of original mid-core titles, inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming.

It's you who decide the length of quests!

Have only 5 minutes for a game? No problem! Book of Demons allows you to set the length of each quest, thanks to our Flexiscope™ system. It learns your way of playing and always gives you the best experience, making Book of Demons the first truly accessible hack & slash!

Build your own deck of devastating skills!

Collect powerful skill cards, combine them depending on the enemies you're facing and assemble your favorite set of devastating powers! But be warned: efficiency of each card will greatly depend on the situation you're in, so be prepared to make constant adjustments!

Relive the classic with a good laugh!

Book of Demons is a universal tale of good and evil about saving the world from total destruction and ultimate devilry! Sounds familiar? Well, how about retelling the story in a different way, with a humorous twist of a parody?

Be a part of a one-of-a-kind adventure!

Never explore the same dungeon twice - in Book of Demons every level is a procedurally generated, randomly-populated adventure of its own! You won't get bored by the diversity of monsters either - there are over 70 kinds of creatures waiting to be slain: lurking scorpions, snake archers, mad goatmen, not-so-sexy succubi... you get the idea.

Hack & slash in the world of Paperverse!

Book of Demons is indeed a dark fantasy hack & slash, but unlike other action role-playing games, it's set in the pop-up book world of Paperverse. The paper-cut universe is one of the hallmarks of Return 2 Games - a series of mid-core games, inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming. Book of Demons is the first installment of the Return 2 Games series.

Looking for even more challenge?

Slaying the Archdemon won't be the end of the story. In Book of Demons, you can master the campaign with 3 different classes (Warrior, Rogue or Mage), revisit your favorite quests in Freeplay mode or rise to the challenge and explore the dungeons on higher difficulty levels (the last one is called Massacre, not without good reason).

Book of Demons has been in Early Access for over two years. It’s been a wild ride. Wild but awesome, thanks to you all! We initially planned of being in Early Access for only six months but the community took the game in directions we never anticipated!


Book of Demons - Development stages


If you look at game's IndieDB page you might see how many features we added to it - the game now have an end game, Normal, Roguelike and Casual modes, randomized card variants, quest mastering, 3 classes... and much more. Not to mention a gargantuan number of bugs reported and fixed.


Book of Demons - Town


The game has reached the point at which we can say it has almost all the stuff we envisioned and so we can safely set the release date. It's the time to make it official official: Book of Demons will exit early access on 13th of December. Yes, this year :archduck:

BUT... WHAT IS BOOK OF DEMONS?

In a few words, Book of Demons is a Hack & slash game distilled to its purest form. Slay the armies of darkness in the dungeons below the Old Cathedral and save the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon himself.

The game is available for both MAC and Windows.

Here are 21 facts about the game.


Try the free and lengthy demo of the game!



PLANS AND THE LAUNCH ITSELF

The release candidate game build is already accessible and deployed to the Public Test branch on Steam. Those of you wishing to see the new cards and legendaries can check this thread for instructions on how to switch to the test branch.


Book of Demons - Warrior


The changes include sixteen new cards, each with magical and unique legendary variants, and a special 'thank you' song performed by townsfolk after the Archdemons is defeated :archduck:


Book of Demons - Rogue


We now continue polishing and finalizing balance on the test branch until the launch date. No new stuff is going to be added except bug fixes until launch. But... we have some fun stuff planned to make the wait time fly :archduck:

WHAT CAN YOU DO?


Book of Demons - love it with reviews!


It turns out you can do a lot. First of all, you can keep an eye out for Dec 13th and play the game to see the new stuff. This in itself will mean a world to us.

Besides that, it would be awesome if you could spread the word. December is a busy month when media attention is grabbed by heavy hitter AAA titles. Although we will do all the standard stuff indie games do on launch. So on 13th December tell your neighbor, tell your kids that Book of Demons is out!

Also, if you haven’t yet please consider writing a review on Steam. Reviews are the lifeblood for small indies!

A SLIGHT POST-LAUNCH PRICE INCREASE


Book of Demons - Cook's statue


This topic popped up in the community forums with players urging us to increase the price of the game. We decided not to do it at least until we exit Early Access then.

As the time is nigh, we will increase the price by 5 dollars. The price of the game will change after this 50% sale, on 9th November. We want to celebrate Polish Developer Sale but this is also the last such significant discount for a long time. So.. if you haven't tried the game yet (for example free demo), now is the time!


Book of Demons - Rogue


We would like to have a sale for launch, of course, so we have decided to raise the price in advance so the 30 days long “no discount” period would end in time for 13th December.

POST-LAUNCH ROADMAP


Book of Demons - Pop-up book


The launch is not the end of the road! We have a slew of features we want to add to the game and stuff. Like our attempts at competitive multiplayer modes (“attempts” is the key word, as it’s not exactly multiplayer in a classical sense of the word). This, however, will come after the launch.

So what about the whole Return 2 Games series? Book of Demons is the first of them, but there are more to come. Some works have already began on the next game and this will gain momentum after the launch. We have cool ideas already and depending on how the launch goes we will decide which get to be implemented and when.

As always,
Stay safe in the paper dungeons :archduck:

Funny how some guys that decided to make a game inspired on my all-time favorite game, Diablo, ended up being one of my all-time favourite developers as well. Cheers!
