What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to heavily involve the community during the development process to create a better and polished game experience based on player input. Not only is feedback on gameplay very helpful, but also feedback on content that the game doesn't yet offer and that the community would like to see.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to complete all game content up to one year after Early Access release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For the full version, I'm planning a more polished gameplay experience through code tweaks, community input, and other content that will be introduced gradually.

The following content is currently planned, but may change during the Early Access phase:
  • Two additional demon enemies that look and behave completely different.
  • Two additional Minions, again completely different.
  • A total of 3 additional large levels handcrafted with attention to detail.
  • Twitch integration where streamers can integrate their community and let them actively influence the gameplay.
  • More paranormal phenomena in phase 1.
  • More different puzzle types in phase 3.
  • More jumpscares and hellish phenomena during the night.
  • Intros & outros to each level to create a more immersive gameplay experience.
  • Weather effects and other gameplay features to increase the pressure on players as they progress through the different stages.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already completely playable and offers the following content:
  • The random mechanism to increase the replay value is already integrated.
  • All 8 characters including the 4 different character classes are already implemented and playable.
  • The entire system to create public & private games, including joining them via a server browser or the Steam overlay is already in place.
  • There are already 3 large different levels polished and ready to be played.
  • The entire gameplay with 2 completely different enemy types, two different Minions, the 3 game phases and the associated ritual including the random based puzzle system is already implemented.
  • Many items, various paranormal phenomena / jumpscares / hell activities are already integrated.
  • A leveling & experience points system is already in place. The associated perks will be implemented after the Early Access release.
  • Various gameplay & graphics settings are already implemented.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, as the content increases, the price will also increase slightly. There are two price increases planned in total: a price increase after 50% of the planned features have been implemented and a price increase at the final release when all planned features have been implemented.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The Steam Community Hub plays the most important role here in Early Access release. Here I want to get in touch with the players to listen to their input to improve the game.
As the Early Access phase progresses, a discord server is also planned.”

About This Game

Demonic Episode is a unique first-person online co-op gaming experience in which you travel to Lost Places in a group of content creators to banish a demon back to hell. Each round plays completely different due to an advanced randomized game mechanic, offering a very high replay value with several hours of gameplay. The completely different Lost Places, with their almost photorealistic graphics (thanks to Unreal Engine 5) and the environment created with attention to detail, let you and your friends dive into the game.


You're part of a group of content creators who team up with a medium to explore Lost Places for their new video series, Demonic Episode. Once there, you want to provide your community with the best entertainment possible and try to track down paranormal phenomena. However, a much more evil secret lies dormant at these Lost Places, and you unleash a demon that begins a relentless hunt for you. Now it's up to you to fight the demon and, with the help of the medium, perform a ritual to banish the demon back to hell.


Choose from one of 4 character classes, each with two associated characters and different abilities. Then go to one of currently 3 different Lost Places (more will be added during the Early Access phase) to work closely together in three phases:
  • In the first phase you'll get an overview of the map and try to detect paranormal phenomena.
  • In the second phase, the Hell Demon is unleashed and starts chasing you while you try to weaken it. Your flashlights will also help you drive the demon back, preventing it from taking out you or your teammates.
  • In the third phase you will prepare the banishing ritual with the help of clues to send the demon back to hell.

During the 3 phases, the time of day progresses, so you'll have to use your lights to orient yourself at night. In addition, the powers of hell are gradually unleashed, influencing your gameplay.

Singleplayer info: It is possible to play the game in singleplayer. However, for the best gaming experience, I recommend playing the game in a group of 2 to 4 players.

Replay value

Demonic Episode offers an elaborate system to make the game experience of each map always different for maximum replay value. In this regard, many different game mechanics are randomly defined for each map at the beginning of the game. For example, the demon, paranormal phenomena, the ritual place, puzzles and much more are left to chance. Thus, if you are in the same level several times, a new challenge awaits you each time.


The game is developed with the latest Unreal Engine 5 version and therefore offers an almost photorealistic gaming experience thanks to real-time lighting and 3D models with extreme and never before seen detail. Despite the new features, the game has been designed to be playable even on non-up-to-date hardware.

Leveling, XP & Perk system (Perks only after Early Access Release)

During gameplay, players can earn experience points to level up their character. As the character levels up, points can be earned to exchange for a randomized perk. This in turn can be equipped before the game starts to give your character advantages such as increased battery life and longer sprint times.

Other features already implemented in the game

  • Create & join private or public game (in-game & via Steam overlay).
  • Chat system in the lobby and during gameplay.
  • Gameplay & graphics related game setting to customize the game experience to your needs and hardware requirements.
  • ... and much more.
