We don't feature many hack and slash games on Indie Retro News, so I thought it would be a good time to give a shout out to Thing Trunk's hack and slash RPG dungeon crawler of ' Book of Demons ', which is coming to the PC via Steam second half of 2016. Unlike the usual games of its type such as Diablo, Grim Dawn and Path of Exile, this one is rather unique. As it features twists in the basic gameplay mechanics, paper cut-out graphics, unprecedented accessibility, and a dark theme intertwined with a fair dose of humour any fan of classic games should enjoy.
Furthermore apart from the uniqueness of its paper based design, Book of Demons also has a character system built around a card system that supersedes and unifies items, skills, and spells and a multiple discrete player and monster mechanic that can be combined in a virtually infinite number of interesting ways to create near endless replayability.
So if you include all that, plus an endless end-game mode with 100+ challenges, truly accessible hack & slashing, randomized dungeons, a single-player campaign with 3 character classes and lots of different monsters, this could well be a very interesting and worthy hack n slash crawler that gamers really should be keeping an eye on!
