Zagreb, Croatia – 16 April, 2018: Daemonical, a terrifying multiplayer horror experience where the battle is to stay alive on a remote island where every move could well be your last – due for release on Steam in May.
TRUST IS OPTIONAL, DEATH IS NOT!
FLIGHT OR FRIGHT, DEAD OR ALIVE, KILL OR BE KILLED…..HUMAN OR DEMON?
These are just a few of the choices you will face if you want to live.
Daemonical offers more your than average demonic experience…..it offers a modern action packed take on the horror movie classics in which you will never know who to trust or what lingers in the darkness.
Daemonical is an asymmetrical horror multiplayer game in which a group of people find an unfinished demon summoning ritual. With the demonic entity released upon the island, the players must find a way to send it back to hell or end up slaughtered.
Never knowing which one of them has become possessed by the demon, it is their decision to make on if they want to team up and trust each other or try surviving alone.
The humans are played in the first-person mode. In order to exorcise the demon, they need to find the missing ritual components and bring them back to the alter. Their only alternative is hiding and surviving until the dawn, when the sunlight will purge the demon from the grounds. They can use fire, which hurts the demon, or weapons and tools hidden around the island to their advantage. While the demon can’t be killed, he can be crippled, stalled and distracted.
The demon is played in the third person, needs to simply slaughter all the humans and prevent them from finishing the ritual. He is fast, agile, powerful and deadly.
The humans are stronger when they band together, but they are easier to find. Stay together or split up to avoid ending up in a group with a demon – it is for you to choose.
Will you go for the missing ritual parts, or just try to hide until dawn? Will you help the others, or just be a lone wolf – the game leaves that up to you.
When a player dies in the game, their soul gets separated from their body and they can float around the map in the shape of a glowing ball of light. He can light the way for the players, find the demon and follow him so the others can see where he is, or just lead the others to his body so they can be revived.
Daemonical also features a positional voice chat, so you can tell the other players that are close to you your plan, or pick a strategy together, but be careful! The demon might be listening in.
