As we are fantasy games enthusiasts since forever, our ambition is to present our interpretation of this genre, by bringing an immersive and original experience to the players.

Exorcise The Demons is an exorcism-themed communication game based on asymmetric cooperative gameplay.  

The first player, in front of the screen, will play as an exorcist and will accomplish rituals in order to ban the demons haunting the place. The other players, who won't be looking at the screen, will have to read the Book Of Rituals, which is containing all the necessary informations to complete those rituals correctly.

The gameplay relies completely on the faculty the players will have to communicate, making Exorcise The Demons a social and immersive game that will put a huge strain on the player’s friendship! 

There is a huge variety of ways to play ETD. In STORY MODE, you will discover the story of the game through 25 fully-narrated missions.

And in the FREE GAME mode, you can either create a game and tailor it yourself, or let the game do it for you. In both cases, you will always face a fresh and tough challenge.

We have tailored the game for you to get the best experience of it by playing with your friends. But a Solo mode will also be available, in which case there will be an in-game book of rituals. 

In Exorcise the Demons, the core of the gameplay is the asymmetric cooperation. This model of gameplay brings a social dimension to the game, and favors communication among players, so they can deal with a complex situation, with limited time, and numerous stress factors.

With the asymmetric model of gameplay, players will have different ways to experience the same game!

Moreover, players won’t ever deal twice with the same situation thanks to the rituals' procedural generation, for a fresh game experience every time you play!

Players will also be able to collect artefacts hidden in the map that they can study, in order to learn more about the story of the characters and unveil the secrets of the game.

  • Cooperation-based original gameplay
  • Only one game copy is required to play with friends
  • Fully narrated Story mode with 25 levels
  • Free-Game mode where every round is procedurally generated
  • 7 types of rituals, with unlimited variations
  • High-res, photo-realistic graphics
  • VR support (Stretch Goals)
  • Every error can destroy the strongest friendship!
  • The Context

In Exorcise the Demons, you will play as an exorcist whose body is possessed by two souls: his own, and a mysterious woman’s one. For an unknown reason, the exorcist is stranded in an unsettling and esoteric place, filled with evil magic.

With the combination of his power, and of the mysterious woman’s knowledge of ancient rituals, the exorcist will have to stand against the darkest influences, in order to unveil the mysteries surrounding him.

Will the pursuit of this never-ending fight against ancient demons unravel the purpose of your presence ?

You and your friends will have to overcome many obstacles to discover more about the exorcist’s cursed journey.

  • The Rituals

Candles: Place the candles in the right pattern to absorb the energy of the fire that brighten them.

Runes: Gather the power of runic stones created by ancient nordic exorcists.

Circle of protection: Trace a powerful seal that will protect you from the influence of demoniac forces

Combustion: Sacrifice matter and save your spirit

Constellations: Identify the constellation you face, and channel their power

Medallion: Manipulate the medallion of Phaël to amplify your spiritual strength

Ouija: Force the demon to reveal their identity and weaknesses.

  • The Demons

The exorcist will face more than a hundred demons coming from different plans and times, Originating in nordic, egyptian, and voodoo mythologies, among many others.

All these demons are in possession of an immense source of power that has been provided by mysterious Archdemons whose origin is as time immemorial as concealed.

How will you stand against their might? The rituals spread in the place will notably help the exorcist to identify their demoniac opponent. If you know your enemy, you will know how to defeat him. As you will gather more and more informations about the demons, you will get closer to revealing the source of their power.

  • The game and the book of rituals will be fully translated in 5 languages (maybe more!)

 

  • Your language is not supported? Take a look at the Translator pledge and add the language of your choice to the game.
  • Voice acting will be fully done in English, and possibly by professional voice actors if this campaign is successful!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Midnight Games has been founded in 2015 in Paris. In september 2016, our studio makes its first steps in the industry by releasing its first game: Running Gods (PC, IOs and Android).

From gaming enthusiasts to passionate developers, the Midnight Games team’s ambition is to bring original and immersive gaming experiences. Exorcise the Demons marks a new step for the indie studio, which is fundamentally dedicated to projects that are as fascinating to create than to experience.

We don’t develop games we wouldn’t enjoy playing in the first place!

 Sophian Atigui: Producer / Developer / Game Designer 

His mastery of multitasking, and the accuracy of his puns, makes him the core of the team. He won several game dev competition and also benefits from a significant experience in the industry. With more than 30 titles released from AAA to indie games he his the one who builds this game as a whole.

 Violaine Berthoumieu: 3D & Concept Artist

Game artist at Midnight Games, Violaine expresses her skills through her inspired concept arts, and her love for french fries. She is the one who creates the visual ambiance of Exorcise the Demons and designs the game. That’s right, she is Midnight Games’ eye-candy provider!

 Jean-Raphaël Ferrière: Marketing & communication Manager  

Jean-Raphaël is the marketing and communication guy at Midnight Games, a gaming enthusiast with an unnecessarily large Steam library, and also the one who has the priviledge of interacting with you... One of his main roles is to cover this campaign and to assure QA of the game.

We have a vision for our game, and we will give our very best to make the final product match it. This is why, as indies and proud of it, we chose to present the game directly to you, backers and gamers, instead of financing it through more traditionnal channels.  

We are an independant studio, but we are gaming enthusiast beforehand. We are developing this game because we want to play it, as much as we want it to be played. That’s the most important to us.

Kickstarter is a platform where creators can bring amazing projects to life thanks to the passionate community’s contribution. Exorcise the Demons is for the most part financed from our own savings, and Kickstarter is a great opportunity to get that extra funding that would allow us to reach the quality standards worthy of AAA games, the indie way!

Risks and challenges

The main risk we face is to keep our objectives and vision in sight to develop Exorcise the Demons as accurately as we believe the game should be. Which means that extra attention will be given on your feedback, and on keeping our game coherent with the closest harmony between all the aspects of its development.

The success of this campaign will be decisive for the quality of the game we develop, as we want to deliver an immersive and original experience that will represent good times and memories for the players.

It is also important to prevent as much as possible the stretching of our timeline to release the game, even though this campaign could represent a significant evolution of our game. The point will be to adapt our efforts so we don’t fall into rushing the development process, or taking an unnecessarily long time to polish Your game.
