Book of Demons deck building launches v1.0

book of demons deck building launches v1.0 for linux mac windows

Book of Demons, Thing Trunk’s unique deck-building, papercraft Hack and Slash launches on Windows and Mac, but is playable on Linux. Since the games officially leaves early access with Book of Demons 1.0 landing on Steam. It’s time to save the Paperverse from evil by facing your foe with the new Archdemon reveal trailer.

So being that Book of Demons is shelving native Linux support in favour of Steam Play (aka. Proton). I’m still eager to share the news of the full launch.

To celebrate the launch, Thing Trunk will be selling Book of Demons at 20% off the regular price during the launch week. Also available, for the first time, the Collector’s Content DLC which includes a 70 pages digital PDF art book. As well as the full Original Book of Demons Soundtrack. Plus 18 thematic 4K wallpapers, and a digital poster! The launch week sale, the DLC and a free demo are available TODAY on Steam.

Book of Demons is a Hack and Slash deck-building hybrid in which YOU decide the length of quests. Since you wield magic cards instead of weapons and slay the armies of darkness. Doing so in the dungeons below the Old Cathedral. Save the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon himself.

Book of Demons has been in early access for two and a half years. While I was expecting Linux support after the Mac release. So with great expectation, many of the above features were implemented in response to community feedback. The final 1.0 update also brings the much-anticipated new batch of common, magical and legendary cards for each of the 3 playable classes.

Book of Demons is the first instalment of Return 2 Games. A series of original mid-core titles, inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming coming from Thing Trunk.

Book of Demons launches on Mac and Windows, but is very playable using Proton via Steam Play and Wine for Linux. Available now with that 20% discount until January 3rd on Steam, GOG and Humble Store priced at $19.99 USD.
