‘Demonschool’ Shows Off Characters, Boss Mechanics, Drops Spine-Chilling Steam Next Fest Demo

Survive a week of demons, dangers, and studies in the highly-anticipated tactics RPG

Demonschool, the school-life tactics RPG with hints of Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Italian horror cinema from publisher Ysbryd Games (WORLD OF HORROR, VA-11 HALL-A), prepares for a week of scares with the launch of a brand new Steam Next Fest demo today. In addition to unveiling the demo, developer Necrosoft Games lifted the curtain on previously unseen characters and boss mechanics.

Investigate the hellish happenings of a mysterious island university as incoming freshman Faye, the heir of the last practicing clan of demon hunters. Balance school life, budding friendships, and kicking demon butt to uncover the school’s secrets and mend the tear between worlds.

Meet a cast of 15 playable characters, each with a distinct set of abilities. Build trust between them to take advantage of satisfyingly flashy combos on the battlefield. Employ Knute to heal and buff friendly characters on the grid, Namako to debuff and stun enemies, or Destin to knock foes back and create breathing room.

Battle demonic weirdos big and small in tactical skirmishes fought in a chess-like dimension where movement equals action and time can be rewound. Set up clever attacks and powerful combos utilizing each student’s strengths in the Planning phase, then enter the Action phase to watch it all play out simultaneously!

Demonschool’s new demo offers a week of classes and clashes, now available on PC via Steam as a part of Steam Next Fest.  The title will be available for Windows PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4|5, and Xbox Series X|S later this year, and will offer English, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese language support.
