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 - Sounds & Magic Cards Update


Today's update to Book of Demons, hack'n'slash game, ends beta of the Roguelike mode, introduces tons of new sounds and huge changes to Magic Cards. Try your luck in finding all those cards and surviving in a more lively dungeon!


But... what is Book of Demons?

If you have never heard about the game here is a short video presenting its main features!



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.

As usual, we do encourage you to give the game a chance and play Demo version!

More magic card variants!

Book of Demons - Magic Cards


Many of our players asked for this, so we rewrote some code quirks and now all of you will be able to find rare magical cards with two or even three (!) magical properties. This means that there will be a chance to obtain cards that also protect other cards on both their sides against Freeplay bosses’ influence or increase effect time, reduce card’s cooldown and heal on use all at once!

Disenchant all magic cards you don’t use!

Book of Demons - Disenchant feature


But wait, what you could do with all tons of possible magic cards you don’t use? Since the update boosts the number of cards that can be found by a few thousands we also added card disenchanting feature. For a small fee, you are able to destroy a variant you have no use for - disenchanting grants a Rune card you can use to upgrade the cards you find useful.

Roguelike mode is out of beta!

Book of Demons - Roguelike Mode


After three months in beta and gathering enough feedback from our awesome players, we decided to finally end the Beta of Roguelike mode. The update will bring some minor balance changes - this doesn't mean we won't be adjusting minor stuff of course, but gameplay wise roguelike mode offers the unique permadeath experience we hoped for!

New voiced lines!

Book of Demons - New Voices


This update adds over 300 new lines of spoken dialogues and one-liners. All characters turn out to be a lot more chatty than they used to be and sometimes will crack occasional jokes. They will also comment on fights and events in the game.

Tons of new sound effects!

Book of Demons


Aside from a lot of new voiced lines, the update brings also over 450 new sounds and remastered version of selected old ones. Many cards get their own sounds! With the update, dungeons should sound more lively now. Finally, the game sounds like we wanted it to sound!

As always (and especially now in Roguelike mode)

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!
