Book of Demons has already amassed a diehard following and holds a steady 93% very positive rating among Steam users, who appreciate its fresh approach to hack & slash mechanics, beautiful papercraft graphics, and charming references to classic PC games. Thing Trunk continues to listen to the Book of Demons community very carefully and has implemented today’s content update following fan feedback.
More Challenging End-Game Mechanics - From now on, bosses will be immune to certain cards, forcing players to adjust their strategy on encounter. This takes advantage of the game’s hallmark feature, a card system that unifies spells, items, skills, and character stats.
Daredevil Mode - Players prepared for an even greater challenge can try Daredevil Mode, which adds a brutal permadeath mechanic.

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 six 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.
