Take a role of a tourist running into a slaughtered team of demon hunters, and find yourself in a life and death battle against the evil force coming straight from perdition.

Enter a terrifying multiplayer horror experience featuring sessions of up to 5 players where each one of them has a potential to become the bone chilling demon that will try to slaughter the rest of the group.


Daemonical is an asymmetrical horror multiplayer game in which 5 humans face off against a demon which will possess one of them when the night falls. Once someone becomes possessed, his goal is to kill all of the remaining humans, while the humans must survive by using fire and other means to ward the demon off.

The survivors must either stay alive until dawn, or activate holy altars placed randomly across the map, which will, once they are all activated, cleanse the map of all evil.

The humans are played in the first person perspective, and the player who is possessed is played in the third person mode.

The demon is strong, cannot be killed, and can climb trees and use his special abilities to disrupt the humans, extinguish their fire sources, and play with their mind in order to hunt them down.

The humans are stronger when they are together, but they are easier to find. Stay together, or split up to avoid ending up in a group with a demon - it is completely your choice.

Will you go for the altars, or just try to hide from the demon, will you help your friends and resurrect them when they are dead, or just be a lone wolf - the game leaves that up to you.

To find each other more easily on the map, humans can do a video call with each other by using their cellphones and pinpoint their location through visual cues and communication with the player on the other end of the line.

In addition to the calls, the game also features an in-game positional voice chat, so running around the map and shouting is always a possibility, but it can prove to be a deadly choice, since the demon can hear 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 other players, find the demon and follow him so the others can see where he is, or just lead the others to his body so they can revive him.

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