I was quite taken with Book of Demons’ particular brand of papercraft-y hack and slash adventures, back when the game launched as an Early Access title in 2016.
After stewing in the fires of hell for a bit, the game is set to emerge fully formed, horns and all, on December 13.
To recap: playing both like a tribute and a parody of Blizzard’s Diablo, the game has you venturing down into its papercraft labyrinths and smash an army of monsters by rapidly clicking on them, using skills, and leveling up a lot.
Two more character classes – the rogue-ish archer and the spell-slinging wizard – have been added, and the handy “tell me how much time you have and I’ll build you a nice dungeon” feature is still pretty great.
It may call itself “dark fantasy”, but really, it has got its tongue firmly planted in cheek, poking fun at its granddaddy and dungeon crawlers in general. Still undecided if this is for you? Well, here’s a useful, fact-filled clip that tells you more about Book of Demons. Take it away, trailer guy!
You can purchase the Early Access version of Book of Demons from Steam for $24.99. An Xbox One version is planned for a later date. For more information, visit the game’s website and follow developers Thing Trunk on Twitter.
