Ladies and gentlemen: what a lovely life-consumer, demon-slayer sweet sweet rogue-like is becoming out of this!
I spent some time with the free demo this weekend (more than I’m willing to admit, less than I’d want to), and I will be clear up front: the game is in beta, so don’t expect a fully finished game yet. Bugs appear here and there, there is a (sad-inducing) lack of general content in the game (WE NEED MOAR LOOOOT AND GUNZZZZ)… but everything, from the cute “WARNING: you have a deprecated shitty intel graphic card” (that almost melted my heart) to the slick presentation and music, is good enough already to make you consider spending some time with this game.
Because the ambience is so good! We have to talk about that: despite having just a 30 minute-long demo of demon-smashing carnage, there’s enough substance in there to feel like you are somewhere, going somewhere. The last time I got such powerful vibes even on the main menu was when playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl, and that says a lot coming from me.
Change the “click click click” of Diablo for “tap tap tap” on your arrow keys, and you are engaged without means of escape. The first time I finished a run in noob-mode, I thought I’d just play for 5-10 minutes, when it actually took me 35 minutes to beat all the levels in the demo, without even killing all the fuckers in every room!
Then I tried again using new skills, in all three difficulty levels… and baby, let me tell you something: I’m in love. I cannot wait to keep tap-tapping my way through demon’s blood, meat and poop… because I’m pretty sure that they shit themselves when they see me with my ADV 12ga SHOTGUN, OH YES BABY!
