The German RPG, “The Dark Eye” is popular, it even has more games sold than Dungeons & Dragons. There’s an abundance of lore to pull from, and in the intro cinematic for the game does nothing but douse you in it, hoping you’ll soak it in like a sponge. But does this cult-hit translate well for Demonicon to be a popular RPG franchise? Almost.
On October 8th, Kalypso Media held an event with the press to take a look at The Dark Eye: Demonicon from developer, Noumena. This was a hands-off demo as they played the game for us and showed specific sections. The game was mostly referred to as Demonicon, as I will for the rest of the preview.
