The Guerrilla Collective 2023 Showcase brought us new looks at many upcoming games. Today, let’s take a look at Necrosoft and Ysbryd Games’ Demonschool and the new trailer that debuted at the showcase:

As RPG fans, it’s easy to hear “demons” and “school” and have our minds go to Atlus’ Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series, and while those games are certainly an influence, Necrosoft seems to be putting their own spin on things, especially given the game’s strategy RPG battles. The darkly cool rock music, visuals blending 2D and 3D, and just an overall striking presence makes Demonschool impossibly compelling to watch. Here’s a bit more on the game from the Steam page:

Demonschool is a new-style tactics RPG where motion equals action. Defeat big weirdos in between the human and demon worlds as Faye and her misfit companions, while navigating university life on a mysterious island.

Key Features

  • Tactics: Rewind any action during the planning phase and create combos to dispatch your foes.
  • Story: A light horror narrative told through huge avatars with side quests aplenty.
  • Schedule: Plan your school schedule to level your characters and build their skills.
  • Friendship: 15 characters with whom to build relationships.

We don’t yet have a release date for Demonschool, though this latest trailer still indicates the game is on track for a release this year. Demonschool is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, macOS, and Linux, and will be Steam Deck compatible. Take a look at some recent screenshots below:
