Developer Fearem will be kicking off an alpha test for their upcoming asymmetrical multiplayer title Daemonical next week.
The closed alpha will kick off with 2000 players on 9 May and ramp up to 9000 in the following weeks as they refine the game. The team has already redesigned character models, character shading and the character customization screen based on feedback. The characters will also now sweat, hurt themselves, and get mucky as they roam around the forest on the island where the game is set.
In Daemonical, players find themselves stranded on a remote uninhabited island with four others and one of the players has the chance to become a demon who will attempt to slaughter the rest of the group. After taking part in an unfinished demonic ritual, it’s up to the players to find missing ritual components, return them to the altar and survive the night while avoiding the demon. The demon cannot be killed but it can be slowed down or injured with the use of weapons. Think of it as a terrifying game of hide and seek.
