Harmless Demons is inspired by a bug observation box my grand father gave me when i was little. Its goal is to capture that sensation of curiosity, excitement and perversion i felt when given those defenceless insects, trapped in my little glass box. One day i would be gentle, careful and attentive with them, the day after i would tear their wings appart, drown them in white spirit, burn them with fire... In Harmless Demons, a strange, unknown creature is put into your hands for understanding. Its full of secrets you'll have to discover by experimenting with it via tools you'll have to build. Its goal is to escape that box he was locked in. Yours is to feed it, hit it, watch it, burn it, love it, kill it until he is no longer a mystery for you.

Description

In Harmless Demons, a strange, unknown creature is put into your hands for observation and understanding. You'll have to learn everything about its behaviours, explore its genome, experiment and interact with it via the many tools you can build. Just like if you discovered a brand new specie on some forgotten island, you'll have to unravel all of its secrets until it's no longer a mystery to you. Love it, hate it, feed it, hit it, burn it, kill it... The choice is yours.
