Earlier this week, Kalypso unveiled a new website for the upcoming game The Dark Eye: Demonicon. Expected to be released some time in the first quarter of 2013, Demonicon will be a fantasy RPG set in the same world as the popular German Dark Eye series. What started off as a tabletop board game has evolved into a series of video games, and Demonicon will be the latest. In addition to the new website, Kalypso also released a number of new screenshots from the game. Have a look after the jump.
Demonicon tells the tragic story of a brother and sister who become pawns of sinister forces in a world of cruelty and depravity. In this bleak yet magical world, their affection is both a blessing and a curse. Both are constantly threatened by mortal danger and demonic temptation, and must find a way through their tortured lives by facing serious moral decisions. Their common destiny will determine that of the entire continent, and will be decided by the choices they make. Hordes of fiends block their way to freedom and peace, and only through battle and magic they will truly become free of the darkness.
The storyline certainly sounds epic, but it remains to be seen how well the gameplay will reflect that. The screenshots below might give you a few hints though, so check them out. If you want more, the newly released official website for The Dark Eye: Demonicon can be found here.
