Book of Demons is a pretty fun time: it does bring back plenty of fond, sleepless nights combing the dungeons beneath Tristram. Its unique aesthetic adds a lot to the game as well. It can be a bit derivative, and if the roguelike formula of dying and starting over does not appeal to you, you may want to sit this one out.
Still, one can recognize the amount of effort that a small studio had put into Book of Demons. Likewise, their “Return 2 Games” series is as ambitious as it gets. The series will create their unique rendition of classic 90s games. Book of Demons — an ode to Diablo — is just the first of seven offerings. Things can only get better from here on out.
I’ve touched on the art style, but it really is gorgeous and unique, with paper outlines and great visuals. This, combined with the Flexisphere, which understands the limitations of modern gamers’ time better than any game I’ve seen, and with its streamlined mechanics and entertaining deck-building system, Book of Demons is definitely worth checking out. It’s got a few issues to work on, sure, but that’s what the next six games in the Paperverse are for, right?
