Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a small team, and early access should provide us with enough funding and players feedback needed to finish the game and fully release it. Although the game is playable as it is, we plan to implement much more content and features, for which we need more resources.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to keep the game in early access up to a year, but that could change when we consider players feedback.”

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

“We plan to implement more demons, more map additions, work some more on procedural map generation, possibly add some new game modes. Also work on bot support.

The final version should have at least a couple different demon types, and lots of demon skills.

The weapons and tools that humans use will be expanded too, as well as map elements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current game version is fully playable with functional online multiplayer, matchmaking, one playable demon type, and a couple of tools that you can use as a human to win or harm the demon. Also features night and day cycle, positional voice chat, character customization and much more.”

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

“The current plan is for the final game to be priced a bit higher than early access title once we release it fully.”

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

“We plan on continuing the community involvement as we are doing it right now - we are open about our plans, and we are considering each and every idea our community comes up with. We have already implemented a couple of them in the game itself and we will continue to do so.

Also, we are planning to tweak gameplay and balance out the game according to what our players say.”

Patch 0.5.3.3d out! Preparing for Halloween!


Hey everyone,

sorry for keeping silent for the last week or so. We are actually working on stuff like inventory system, customization, etc. which requires a bit more focus and a bit more time to finish up.

Our goal is to be done with it all right before Halloween, we are preparing some promotions etc. which should happen in the second half of the month.

Nevertheless, here is a small patch intended to fix some things while you wait. :) The changelog is not a big one, but here it is:

v0.5.3.3d Changelog:

- added more towers, included them in procedural systems
- you cant pickup bones anymore when you are about to become the demon
- fixed the text appearing when you cant take batteries if you don't have a flashlight
- fixed bug where you get stuck in the air if demon climb runs out mid jump
- fixed legs not moving when demon is crippled animation bug
- fixed a bug where revival xp can go infinite if someone who you try to revive disconnected
- menu chatbox click area fixed

Thank you all for the immense support and patience, as always. For those of you who didn't do it yet, make sure to join us on our Discord - https://discord.gg/fearem where you can find groups to play with and share your ideas with us!

Talk soon,

Fearem

About This Game

Having ended up on an abandoned remote island you find yourself in a life and death battle against the evil coming straight from perdition.
Enter a terrifying multiplayer horror experience featuring sessions for up to five players, where any one of them has chance of becoming the bone chilling demonic entity that will try to slaughter the rest of the group.

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, and find the demon and follow him so the others can see where he is.

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.

Customize your character – pick your gender, choose between various player models, clothes, colors and symbols that you can put on your clothing.

  • Asymmetrical multiplayer
  • First person and third person playing mode
