Developers Mnemosyne Games have officially kicked off their funding campaign for their platform Metroidvania, beat’em up RPG, Demoniaca: Everlasting Night.
Demoniaca Has the retro art style of classic 1990s platform games, with cinematic story elements, modern gameplay mechanics and animations to give players a unique and enjoyable 2D platformer. The animations are extremely smooth and the freedom of movement looks like it gives the player complete control over their actions, to seamlessly transition from one frame to the next.
A few key features that Demoniaca will have to offer is its combat system that rivals that of the classic sprite based King Of Fighters games, in fact, the developers even call it a first prototype of Kofvania.
The story follows one woman out to seek revenge after her village was raided by demons, killing everyone and leaving her for dead. Laying in her own pool of blood and awaiting death, she soon finds that her blood has been contaminated by the blood of the demons, giving her supernatural demonic abilities. She manages to sew up her bloody and beaten body, gears up, and uses her new found powers to bring the fight straight to the demon’s gates.
Demoniaca will also feature RPG elements, allowing you to upgrade your abilities to become more powerful as you progress. Take a look at the cinematic trailer and the gameplay concept trailer down below.
