Demon War Now Available

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 24, 2011

I’ll do a bigger post on it once I have a chance to play it, but Soldak Entertainment has now officially released the expansion for their butt-kicking highly dynamic action-RPG Din’s Curse.  Of which I am a fan. I am a little terrified of the expansion, as I remember how many hours I lost ‘reviewing’ the game after I’d already added my affiliate webpage and a couple of blog posts talking about it.  I’ve been able to put down the game for weeks at a time, but every time I pick it up again (to “refresh my memory” about it or something…) I find myself hooked. Again.

I’ll call that a sign of a pretty good game.

Anyway, Din’s Curse: Demon War has now been officially released for both Windows and Mac.

It’s an expansion, which means you need the original game to play. If you don’t have the original game, do yourself a favor and check it out. I can’t guarantee that it’s for everybody,  but it’s one of the games I have no problem holding up as an example of the potential indies have to make a mark in the RPG genre.

    Din’s Curse – highly recommended indeed :). It’s just so different from the dozens of ARPGs out there, you’d really be missing out even if you’re not a fan of hack-n-slash games. I’m still not, but Soldak’s games, apart from Kivi, are the exceptions to the rule.

    I got to playing it (probably too much) over the weekend. If I have a problem with it, it’s that it’s made things feel even more chaotic, and villagers too often (in the 3 towns I’ve played) in danger of starving. But those are relatively minor. Overall, a great expansion. Hint: Don’t tackle the 100 waves of enemy attacks unless you really want to spend a lot of time in a town. 🙂 But it’s a totally optional game mode, like hardcore or cursed.
