About Book of Demons

About this game

Paperverse dungeons galore

Witness hack and slash distilled to its purest form with Book of Demons. With this Steam key, gamers will embark on many fantasy quests, with everything from slaying the armies of darkness in dungeons below the Old Cathedral to saving the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon himself.

Relive a classic universal tale of good and evil, and saving the world from total destruction and ultimate devilry!

QUESTS DONE YOUR WAY
Whether it's a quick trip or hours of gaming, you can set the length of each quest with the game's Flexiscope system. Flexiscope learns from the player's time in the game and gives you the best experience, making Book of Demons the first truly accessible hack and slash.

BUILD YOUR OWN DECK
Collect powerful skill cards and create devastatingly powerful packs to challenge different enemies types. The efficiency of each card will greatly depend on the situation you're in, so players must be on their toes and make constant adjustments to be victorious.

NEW ADVENTURES
Never explore the same dungeon twice with procedurally generated levels. With over 70 kinds of creatures waiting to be slain, players will go up against scorpions, snake archers, mad goat men and many more.

WANT A CHALLENGE?
Defeated the Archdemon as a Warrior? Master the campaign with the other classes (Rogue and Mage) and revisit your favorite quests in Freeplay mode. Or, players can rise to the challenge and explore the dungeons on higher difficulty levels - including 'Massacre'.

YOUR OFFICIAL BOOK OF DEMONS STEAM KEY GIVES YOU:

  • A humorous twist on a classic tale
  • Dark fantasy hack and slash action
  • Set Quest times via Flexiscope system
  • Procedurally generated, randomly-populated adventure
  • First installment of Return 2 Games - a series of original mid-core titles inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming

Terrible cards balance. Over half of all cards are useless. It is impossible to build deck. Terrible control mechanism. Characters are only able to walk in a straight line, However, archers and mages shoot tons of projectiles on your face and you can do nothing to dodge.

Pretty fun actually. Choosing the size of dungeon for each run is nice.

If Diablo had been released as a boardgame instead of PC, and someone made a PC ARPG based on that board game, it'd be Book of Demons. It's great. More ARPG than deckbuilder. Some people might not like the fact that YOU MOVE ON A SET TRACK, which is perfectly understandable, yet makes the game unique and challenging in my opinion.

The cartoonish style is a welcome change to the genre. The world is well made and it has a high replay factor. I can totally recommend this game :)

Book of Demons Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
One thing that makes this isometric adventure card game different from the others is its artistic paperverse appearance. Players will be able to collect a vast array of cards to battle enemies in procedurally generated levels. The neat Flexiscope system will also be appealing to gamers who want to have a quick play.
