Demeo is an RPG dungeon crawler in virtual reality, where a A dark force has taken over the underworld.

A dark force has taken over the underworld in the upcoming RPG dungeon crawler, Demeo, and it’s a world you’re not likely to survive alone.

Together, players will defeat malicious minions by rolling the die and combining regular attacks with special ability cards gathered from treasure chests throughout the various levels.

Terrors and treasure await as you and your friends brave the corrupted catacombs of Demeo together. Choose your champions (Guardian, Sorcerer, Assassin and Hunter) wisely in this cooperative game, for once you have ventured below you must conquer the nether floors or perish in the attempt. The ultimate outcome depends on your choices, and whether the dice are rolled in your favor…

Will you have the mettle to survive all the way to the end in this monster-infested turn-based game that will take game night virtual?

In this new gameplay trailer, you are given their first glimpse of the multiplayer co-op game in action as they are immersed into the dungeon where a warrior faces off against the army of ferocious beasts and savage goblins that block his way. 

As the video continues, viewers are brought back a layer to the meta-reality of Demeo’s VR basement, showing the first-person perspective of multiple players sitting around a table playing Demeo together. RPG fans have dreamed for years about descending into their favorite fantasy games, and with this single change in perspective, viewers come to the realization that Demeo truly puts players inside of a fantasy epic at a level never seen - or experienced - before thanks to the magic of VR. 

“It’s so easy to get lost in the different environments of the game,” explained Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “Are you sitting around a table playing a board game with friends in your parents’ basement? Yes. Are you a hero exploring levels of a dungeon and facing hordes of monsters and traps with your fellowship of warriors? Also yes. It’s this combined experience that’s so reminiscent of traditional tabletop gaming with friends that makes Demeo such an engaging experience.” 

“Our goal in creating Demeo was to design a shared gaming adventure for friends to become completely immersed in fantasy worlds, where they can step out of their everyday experiences and find a chance to escape the outside world together,” added Palm. “It’s very much like an old school game night with friends, but now with a bit of previously impossible wish fulfillment: your thought of ‘man, I wish I could be in this game’ has actually come true, and it’s more incredible than you ever imagined.” 

Demeo is coming to Oculus Quest and Rift platforms, as well as traditional gaming PC devices (Steam) with cross-platform play in 2021.
