    Dark moody soundtrack fit beautifully with the depressed village. Top down view worked well for me, soemthing different in an adventure game. The main character out Grissoms Grissom! A medieval CSI who also talks to the dead. Who thinks these things up?? I love it!

    Solid adventure game. This is not what you would call a traditional adventure game. The inclusion of action elements and 3D environments are nice touches. Talking to the dead doesn't hurt either ;)

    Loved it! Finally a horror game that plays with your head and doesn't rely solely on cheap 'jump out and scare you' tactics. I really hope there a sequel...

  1. We like Daemonica for its refreshing variations on tired themes, and a sincere attempt to introduce a nifty potion-mixing element into its chilling story.
  2. It’s great to see a horror-themed game that goes more for the cerebral end of the spectrum rather than straight the jugular, but there are a few moments where you might not want to step into a darkened area or find out what’s happened to a character you’ve befriended.
  3. While Daemonica isn’t going to be for everyone, those looking for an entertaining and well written title will have a good time with it.
