  • Summary: Book of Demons is a Hack & Slash Deck-building hybrid in which YOU decide the length of quests. Wield magic cards instead of weapons and slay the armies of darkness in the dungeons below the Old Cathedral. Save the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon himself.

    Book of Demons is a hidden gem, taking some of the best elements from action RPGs like Diablo and Path of Exile. It maintains its unique paper cut-out style, while providing a fun and intriguing equipment and advancement system.

    Book of Demons introduces a unique card-based skill system and a sense of humor to the stuck-in-its-ways ARPG genre. It has plenty of tricks in its dungeon to keep you on your toes, but gives you ample ways to form your own strategy. With three distinct classes and an endlessly replayable quest, you can get lost in Book of Demons’ papercut dungeon for quite a while.

    Although I was initially unsure about it, Book of Demons turned into another pleasant indie surprise. It’s beautifully stylized, you can easily adjust its scope to fit your schedule and the challenge is appropriately set.

    A nice hack and slash game with the beautiful art style and solid combat. But the card system doesn't balance decently and it makes the long-term experience boring.

    Book of Demons is a fun romp, though it’s not as engrossing and captivating as other, more "serious" action/RPGs.

    Delightful, fun, quirky -- Book of Demons keeps you entertained as it provides a unique take on what Diablo and the ARPG genre provides. Unfortunately, it also becomes repetitive and aimless towards the end.

    Book of Demons is a beautiful roguelite dungeon crawler with enemy variety and a plethora of interesting systems built upon a sheer lack of player-side input. A decent time waster, but difficult to recommend at launch prices.

I can play the game for hours straight or only 20 mins and still feel like I've progressed and achieved something. I always keep coming back to it regardless of what else I'm playing. I cant wait to see what other games they will add to the collection in the future. I even purchased the Supporters Pack as soon as it was available, small companies like this with a great vision as theirs need all our support! Expand

    Finished my run through the story campaign with the Rogue class after 10 hours.

    That was quite a fun and novel ARPG experience and a pretty big love letter to Diablo 2.
    Flexiscope run time customization is unique and something I haven't seen before, interesting and helpful feature!
    Some minor gripes with certain mechanics here and there (immunities lasting way too long at times) and the fact that you can't customize your character visually.
    All in all, I can definitely recommend this game if you wanna play an unconventional hack 'n slash RPG. On top of that, Roguelite mode, superhot mode, tons of difficulties to unlock and mini challenges ensure replayability if that's your thing.

    Note: You can ignore the deckbuilding/card aspect of this game and treat them like active/passive skills instead. They're only cards in appearance.

    Добавлю лишь комментарий из стима:

    Итак, разработчики сказали своё веское слово - запросили изменение цены для России на 6 666 р. в связи с агрессией на Украине. И у меня есть несколько вопросов: а что с изменением цены для США за сомнительные операции в Кении в этом году? Или давайте вы Азербайджан накажете за то, что они у Армении Нагорный Карабах оттяпали?
    Нет? Это не считается? Это далеко и вам не интересно?
    Прежде, чем писать такой бред, хотя бы сделайте вид, что вы поинтересовались ситуацией с разных сторон.
    А ваши двойные стандарты можете при себе оставить.
