Book of Demons Announces a paper Tribute and Parody of the Action RPG Genre with a New Trailer!
Thing Trunk unveils a trailer for a new hack & slash for the PC that features a scary poem, a paper demon, and a bunch of intense gameplay footage. Pre-orders start now.
WARSAW, Poland, March 11th 2016- Independent games studio Thing Trunk announced Book of Demons today, a dark fantasy action Role-Playing Game for PC.
What makes Book of Demons stand out from the rest of fantasy hack & slash games are its many twists in the basic gameplay mechanics, paper cut-out graphics, unprecedented accessibility, and a dark theme intertwined with a fair dose of humor any fan of classic games should enjoy. The character system is built around a card system that supersedes and unifies items, skills, and spells. Current hack & slash games employ countless statistics that change the mechanics by a percentile in a continuous fashion. Book of Demons features multiple discrete player and monster mechanics that can be combined in a virtually infinite number of interesting ways to create near endless replayability.
Book of Demons is the first installment in the Return 2 Games series which was announced by Thing Trunk last year. Each game in the R2G series takes place in Paperverse where all characters and objects are made of folded paper. True to the origins of the hack & slash genre, Book of Demons tells the universal story of good vs evil, of a hero’s quest to save the world from the ultimate devilry.

- Paper cut-out graphics
