Book of Demons Announced - Xbox One Exclusive

Book of Demons, developer Thing Trunk’s upcoming deck-building hack and slash , has been announced as an Xbox One console exclusive.

For those wondering what the heck the game is about, well, Book of Demons is a tribute to all the hack and slash classics. It’s a tribute somewhat to all the fans of these titles at Thing Trunk, and the dev-team always wanted to develop a game that would honor the precursors of the genre and bring something fresh to the table at the same time. 

Filip Starzy?ski, Producer and Co-Founder at Thing Trunk states that what makes Book of Demons stand out is the number of gameplay mechanic twists, the paper cut-out graphics, a dark theme intertwined with a fair dose of humor, and what they are most proud of – the unprecedented accessibility.

The hallmark of Book of Demons is the character development mechanic they came up with. The game replaces the usual hack-and-slash statfest with a single solution – a card system. You collect, upgrade and combine skill cards to compose your own decks of powers. It may sound pretty simple, however there is no ultimate card set that fits all the situations – to survive, you will have to constantly come up with new strategies and implement regular adjustments to their skill collections.

The second feature which greatly increases Book of Demons’ ease of play is the possibility to select the length of each quest, so you can choose if you want to embark on a longer, more epic journey or take on a 5-minute mission. Shorter missions do not mean they are easier, though – thanks to our Flexiscope system, you will always experience the same intensity of gameplay, no matter the length of current quest.

What about the story? Filip states that Book of Demons puts you in charge of one of 3 characters taking part in an epic, but humorous quest to save Paperverse from total destruction. While the game facilitates you in every possible way, the quest itself definitely won’t be a piece of cake. To defend the world from ultimate devilry, you will have to explore procedurally generated dungeons, confront over 70 monster species and fight a brigade of evil bosses, including the nasty Archdemon. If some of you would like to hang out in the catacombs a bit longer, well, of course you can – there’s a Freeplay mode where you can master your favorite quests and rise to the challenge by completing the game on higher difficulty levels.

For now you can check out the trailer below to see a bit of what this unique game looks like in action:
