10 hours in the game at the time of writing
Now where do i begin?
This game gives you choices, well to be specific, a set amount of choices as well as consequences tied to said choices.
That is what i love about Demonicon. If you can look past the funny voice acting, the hilarous script and the bipolar tendecies of your hero Cairon, then you are in for a very funny ride.
The graphics of the game were average at most, not bad and also not that good. Just average. There are a few graphical options to choose from in order for you to tweak your experience with it i guess.
There will be a few instances where some textures take time to load or will not load at all, but this happened rarely.
The voice acting in this game is really funny to me. There's the obligatory english/british accent and what really makes it funny is the script. It is like they really wanted Cairon to sound like the most bi-polar hero you'll ever encounter. You can be mad in one moment and immediately be the paragon of kindness in the next.
The consequences in the game are shown to you in a cutscene whenever you finish the quest chain that had you make the choices. It sums up your choices in a very creative way, i love the presentation. The consequences themselves range from things you can live with, things you can't sleep at night about and things that are cartoonishly evil.
The thing i like the most is that while you can be a total ♥♥♥♥ to everyone, your dickishness won't lock you out of doing good things and you have a chance to turn it around should you wish to. There is also a fair amount of flirting since apparently a ton of women find Cairon attractive.
The story of the game revolves around the two siblings, Cairon and Calandra, and their "destiny"
I won't really spoil anyone reading this but one of the main bits of the story itself is actually revealed in the steam trading cards you get from the game.
The combat is annoying at first. Like really. It takes a while to kill something, imagine getting swarmed while you still have the starting equipment. But it does get easier as you progress, though some skill combinations kind of break the game for me as it makes you near invincible. (Feint+Nova, Ice Lance+Mortal Blow. Plowed through hordes of enemies with it.)
There isn't much variation between the weapons and armor that you get, most of them look similar to each other if not totally the same except for the stats that it has. There isn't really a class since you just tweak your skills to your liking.
My Cairon was a fast talking, persuasive, lockpicking, trap disabling, spell throwing, sword slashing, medieval douchbag.
I absolutely loved playing Demonicon and i'm seriously considering a few more playthroughs with different choices like
flirt with Girl A instead of Girl B or be a ♥♥♥♥ to NPC A instead of being a ♥♥♥♥ to NPC B, etc etc etc.
You don't have to buy it at full price if you don't want to, i got this game in a bundle and i totally recommend getting it that way too if you're on the fence about buying the game. It is a must try experience.
