During the recent PC Gaming Show, publisher Ysbryd Games shared new footage (below) and a long-awaited release date release date for turn-based tactical RPG Demonschool: Friday, September 13th, 2024. Developed by Necrosoft Games, Demonschool takes obvious visual and thematic influence from early entries in the Persona series as well as Giallo Cinema. The game features a striking palette across its characters and environments, including rich, full-bodied renderings of the cast for dialogue scenes. Demonschool‘s tactical combat encounters have been widely compared to the highly acclaimed Into the Breach.

Soon after this news dropped, Ysbryd went on to announce via Twitter/X that a playable demo is available now as part of this year’s Steam Next Fest.

RPGFan’s own Aleks Franiczek got early access to the demo and was able to provide a comprehensive and frankly excellent preview; If you are interested in the game, I sincerely encourage you to check out the article.

He’s been chasing that feeling of awe and wonder ever since. Who knows? Maybe he’ll find it right here with RPGFan. When he’s not writing for RPGFan, you’ll find him nonchalantly leaning against the ballroom wall being the “best looking guy here.” …whatever.
