A Demon Hunter receives a letter from Daniel, a man begging for help against a demonic infestation from the mountain that he calls home. The Hunter, in a search for him through the cold and abandoned world, will discover a twisted tale of intimacy and violence of the past, and must use that knowledge to purge the demons from the once-beautiful land.

- Hand animated 2D characters on a cold and ruined 3D world
- Methodical combat that rewards patience, precision, and knowing the enemies intimately
- A one-sitting narrative of discovering memory fragments that showcase the beauty of the past
- Fully voiced dialogues and narrations
- Optional Narrative Mode for those who don't want difficulty to affect the pacing of the story, without taking away the intensity of combat

really like the demo


Fun game! I made a short video about it! 


Love this game

good story, but the attack method makes me tear my hair out since it is not very straightforward. 


This game is impressive. The mix 2D/3D is beautiful, it's like if trees are scratching you. The voices are so great ! They are calm and fascinating. The story is simple (for now, because it's a demo) but efficient. The only point that seems weird is the way that demons/wolf attack. You believe that they will attach in a direction, and at the very least, they turn towards you. But it's the only point. 

I wish the best for the full game ;)

(Sorry if I've writed something wrong, I'm French :p)


very good game,cant wait to play the full version,i love this game,cool chill game with great feeling and good story,good work man <3


Liking the atmosphere... at least for me it feels like there's something brewing right beneath the surface. :) 




MAN! This game is so Dope! Great demo guys, I can't wait to play the full version when it comes out. I'll be looking forward to it. Keep up the great work. In case you wanted to see my reaction to it


Really enjoyed the demo guys, look forward to seeing more in the Autumn :) Put a preview up just now. Cheers! 


Hello! I have fallen in love, the games great mechanics, story line, and the overall work put into the game are fascinating! I'm a big fan of adventure games and I have only the best hopes for this game! I can't express my excitment and I can't wait for the game to come out!


This is awesome! The graphics are beautiful and the voice acting is amazing. The only criticism I have is that shooting the fire is a little wonky however, it could be because I used a mouse instead of a gamepad. Either way I'm super excited to see what will come plus, it comes out on my birthday! So that will be a great birthday present. Very well done.


Wow, what a awesome first part! That ending left me mad because I couldn't play more. :) Everything about this game was done very well. Nice job.

Super demo with lots more to come. The graphics look cool and the voice acting and music are top notch. Great job... :)


Really cool stuff here! The hybrid 2d/3d art style works really well in most cases, but it did feel almost upside down in some cases, maybe it was just me but it was almost a little disorienting. The voice acting towards the player is fantastic and adds quite a bit of character to the game, but it sounded a little stiff when two characters were interacting. Lastly, I do like the combat, but also hope that later versions will expand upon the two current abilities for some sort of combo attacks or something I didn't even think of. It works pretty well, but I think will need to rely on some variety and choice later on. Awesome work and I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes!


Before I'm Posting this i Finished the demo and the game looks amazing. I did not record the entire gameplay because i feel like you should try this game. You wont regret it. Great job dev
