Warsaw, Poland, July 28th, 2016: Book of Demons, an action RPG announced for PC and Xbox One, releases on Steam Early Access today.

     Joey Yee - GameSpot: “Nothing looks quite like this!” “There’s no doubt Thing Trunk is off to a great start.”

     Josh Vanderwall - The Escapist: “The concept behind the Return 2 Games seven-part retrological makes me want to love it even more.”

     Kyle Bradford - GameSpew: “Book of Demons creates an experience that both a casual fan and a hardcore dungeon crawling expert can enjoy. It’s definitely worth your time thanks to its respect for it, something not many games these days can attest to.”

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 7 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 vs evil - that immediately seem 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 team based in Warsaw, Poland. The core team comprises of 6 dedicated developers. The 3 founders – Filip Starzyński, 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 AAA quality content is possible in a small but experienced team with lots of passion.
