The Rogue Class Completes the Hero Lineup in Book of Demons


Early Access Exit Roadmap Revealed

 

Warsaw, Poland - December 11, 2017/ Book of Demons, Thing Trunk’s unique deck-building, papercraft hack & slash, today completes its hero lineup with the addition of the bow-wielding, charming-but-deadly Rogue.

Unlike the two other single-focus classes―the tanky Warrior and the spellcasting Mage―the Rogue excels in precise, long-ranged arrow attacks and can also make the most of her daggers when forced to face monsters at close-range. This style of gameplay is very rewarding but often risky. Luckily, there are 16 new class cards to help her control and defeat large crowds of papercraft-like adversaries. The Rogue is voiced by the talented Rachael Messer (Paladins, Heroes of Newerth).

Having released the final of the three in-game classes, Thing Trunk announced that Book of Demons will be exiting Early Access in the second half of 2018, but not before receiving 8 major feature updates. Planned updates include Mac support, spatial sound engine, new cards, and new game modes such as the dedicated offline competitive Challenge Mode, among many others.

 

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 constant updates and bug fixes. This allowed the game to reach and hold an overwhelmingly positive review rating.

 

More information about today’s update and the details of the roadmap are available on Thing Trunk’s development blog: https://thingtrunk.com/major-update-rogue/

 

To highlight the update, Thing Trunk is running a weeklong 30% discount on Book of Demons (starting Dec 11, 2017 10:00am Pacific time), plus a new set of Rogue screenshots was released:

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 highest quality games is possible in a small but experienced team with lots of passion.
