One of the games we wanted you to keep an eye on from the last Steam Next Fest (opens in new tab) was demo (opens in new tab), a dungeon crawler made first for VR and now released for regular screen PCs. Demeo: PC Edition has the same things as the VR edition, and those who own the VR version can play cross-platform with the PC edition, so if your friends already play there, you can just jump in.
Demeo is a fast and furious dungeon crawler where you and a family of three other adventurers fight your way through many bandits to achieve your goals. It’s relentless dungeon crawling as waves of enemies will constantly appear from the shadows to kill you. Our Jody MacGregor described it as “like having the Monster Manual thrown in your face”.
It’s one of those games that I love because it’s difficult, sometimes even unfair, but the rules are very consistent. You and your friends learn to hedge your bets and get around what you know is coming so you can win. It is a wave-based survival dungeon crawler.
As of now, Demeo has five different heroes, and each hero is controlled with a deck of cards with their abilities and equipment. The release has three full adventures for now, but the developers at Resolution Games intend to release more adventures and heroes in the future.
You can find Demeo: PC Edition on Steam. (opens in new tab)
