Book of Demons

505 Games and Sonka have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Book of Demons, a “deck-building, papercraft hack and slash” developed by Thing Trunk. It will be released on April 30th in Europe and North America, and is now available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop with a 10% off discount.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features for the game:

Book of Demons is a deck-building hybrid adventure game that is part tribute to hack and slash favourites and part parody, offering a spin on the classic tale of good and evil and saving the world from ultimate devilry. By wielding magic cards instead of weapons and slaying armies of darkness in procedurally generated dungeons below the Old Cathedral, the game encourages players to strategize and adapt their hand using items, spells and skills and a variation of diverse bonuses and upgrades. Developed with the Flexiscope engine, Book of Demons gifts players with the power of time. Players can divide the game into sessions of any length with the engine learning player pace to anticipate time estimated to complete the next session.

  • Three playable classes, each with different cards: Warrior, Rogue and Mage
  • 40 cards with magical and legendary variants per character class
  • Three underground realms and epic Quest Boss battles
  • 7 families of monsters with 70+ variations including custom traits and mechanics
  • Roguelike mode for fans seeking an extreme challenge
  • Four unlockable endgame difficulties in Freeplay mode after completing the campaign
  • Complete offering of cards ever released
  • Special grand finale surprise after defeating the insidious Archdemon

Mars Horizon

The Irregular Corporation have announced that Mars Horizon will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

Here’s the latest trailer, alongside more details and the list of key features:

In Mars Horizon you take control of a major space agency, launching from the dawn of the space age in the 1950s, all the way through to landing humans on Mars in the near future. Guide your agency through the space race and write your alternate history of space exploration: any of the agencies can be the first to land on the Moon if you make the right choices. Step into the shoes of a mission control flight director, manage the mission, and face the challenges as you plan your agency’s journey to the stars. In Mars Horizon, you’ll need to manage your agency’s resources and solve strategic challenges in turn-based missions in order to succeed. But beware: space is a very unforgiving environment. These are the critical moment-to-moment decisions of mission control; do you spend power to fix a malfunctioning antenna or save it in case of an oxygen leak? Perhaps risking that extra three months of mission planning could have avoided this issue?

  • Play as a variety of real space agencies or create your own and everything that goes with it: build your base with launch pads, research labs, astronaut training facilities, and of course, rockets
  • Construct your own custom launch vehicles from hundreds of combinations, and improve their reliability over launches and missions.
  • Plan missions and manage challenges: launch satellites and crewed spacecraft to explore the Solar System and create solutions to unforeseen problems that arise. Mars Horizon brings you all the excitement of real scenarios of space exploration and makes it accessible
  • Solve the various challenges of turn-based missions to earn scientific advancement and public support – the more support you gain, the larger your budget will become
  • Explore an extensive tech tree and either compete or collaborate with other agencies to plot your roadmap to Mars
  • Created using input from actual space agencies, Mars Horizon distils a passion for space exploration, international cooperation, and the goal of making humanity a multi-planetary species!
