Book of Demons is currently in its last months of Early Access, with the final release expected to happen before the end of the year. Mac support is one of the last milestones on Thing Trunk’s roadmap, just before the planned announcement of the definitive release date.

 

Just like on Windows, Mac version is fully integrated with multiple Steamworks features, such as Stats, Achievements, Leaderboards and full Steam Controller support. Saved games can be moved between the platforms via Steam Cloud.

Book of Demons is a single-player, dark fantasy hack & slash, set in a paper world, where

players fight the Archdemon’s army of darkness with magical cards instead of weapons. With the added support for the new platform, Mac gamers can now experience all of the signature features that Windows gamers have loved about Book of Demons:

  • Flexiscope system to adjust quest length to your liking
  • Papercraft visual art-style
  • Unique card based hack & slash mechanics

 

A free demo of Book of Demons is available for Mac and PC here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/449960/

 

Thing Trunk launched Book of Demons on Steam Early Access in July 2016 to very positive reviews and has since continued to support the game and its community with multiple updates and bug fixes. This allowed the game to reach and hold a very positive overall review rating.

 

Book of Demons is part of Thing Trunk’s Return 2 Games series, which focuses on creating memorable and engaging titles inspired by the early days of PC gaming. Fans of the series can support Thing Trunk’s future development by purchasing the R2G Supporter’s Pack on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/706770/

About Return 2 Games Series

Return 2 Games is a series of original mid-core titles inspired by the golden days of PC gaming. Thing Trunk’s plan is to build seven games in total, each unique in terms of genre and theme, but all sharing the same vision: to make deeply engaging experiences accessible.

 

Return 2 Games draws inspiration from the early days of PC gaming when developers weren’t afraid to innovate, defined new genres, and created the most memorable experiences. Return 2 Games titles are designed to deeply engage in a matter of minutes. They explore powerful universal stories, like good versus evil, that are immediately familiar. Return 2 Games caters even to people who don't play as much as they used to, who find casual games shallow and unengaging, and who can’t invest enough time into hardcore games to really enjoy them.

About Thing Trunk

Thing Trunk is a small game development studio based in Warsaw, Poland. The core team is comprised of seven dedicated developers. The 3 founders - Filip StarzyƄski, Konstanty Kalicki, and Maciej Biedrzycki - are casual game industry veterans who (despite a level of success) became disappointed with the miring trends in the market and scrapped their former brands (Codeminon and Twinbottles) to focus solely on the ambitious Return 2 Games idea. Since then they are trying to prove that making high quality, unique games is possible in a small but experienced team with lots of passion.
