DEMONIACA is a pixel art indie game developed by Mnemosyne Games and set in a dark, gothic environment. It is a pixel art action platformer that combines Castlevania's aesthetic with classic Fighting Game combat mechanics, like "the King of Fighters". In fact it is the first prototype of Kofvania.
Striving to build a new Tower of Babel, a clan of ancestral demons razes a village to the ground. They sacrifice all its inhabitants, but one girl survives. Gutted and apparently dead, she wakes up upon piles of smoking corpses, surrounded by pools of blood. Her own blood has been contaminated with that of the demons, giving her inhuman powers. She sews her mangled body back together and decides to avenge her brothers. Setting off on her revenge journey, she joins a world made of death, blood and violence in a quest to discover her true nature.
These are just few of the main characters you will meet in your journey. As you advance you will discover their backgrounds and stories, revealing their realistic, three dimensional personalities.
There are two different versions of Demoniaca: the standard and the uncensored one. The latter features explicit contents; it is intended for adult audiences only.
Why Kickstarter? Because this story is worth telling! Unfortunately, we do not have the time nor the resources to give this project the love it deserves. With your support, we can finally give life to this story and immerse you in a bloody world, to the most remote corners of Babel Tower!
The estimated time for completing the game is 12/24 months, depending on the funding achieved. If the campaign is successful, the game and its plot will be enhanced with several additional contents, according to the following stretch goals:
We thought of different rewards for each type of player, so find the one that fits you best.
DEMONIACA was born from our desire to rediscover the classic "fighting game" way to play. You will accompany the main character along her vengeance journey.
What we are offering is not only a new take on a game, but a story. A humble yet challenging project, a compelling story of revenge that mixes realistic emotional conflict with explicit violence and sexual contents. A game with the frantic pace designed to enhance and entertain the player: this is what we want DEMONIACA to become.
We are a new Italian team, ready to get in the game! Mnemosyne gathers different professionals coming from a broad range of backgrounds. Our ambition is to innovate through ideas that move away from the classical vision of gaming. www.mnemosynegames.com
DEMONIACA will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux. Regarding Playstation 4 and PS Vita, they will be unlocked with the relative stretch goals. Other potential platforms are: Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo U.
The final release will be available also on Steam.
Risks and challenges
Financial risk threatens small teams, in our case we have already spent our own money on this project and will make sure we release this game that we have all been dreaming of for quite some time.
