Rating Summary
This is an action/role-playing game in which players assume the role of a demon who must consume souls in order to battle a monstrous threat. From a 3/4 overhead perspective, players use swords, arrows, and magic (e.g., fireballs, blasts of energy) to attack fantastical characters and human-like enemies. Combat is highlighted by cries of pain, impact sounds, and splashes of blood. The game contains some sexual material/innuendo in the dialogue (e.g., “I am not your wh*re, General! You cannot simply take me at your whim…”; "Let me be your lover again, Ataka...I will do whatever you ask.“; We shall pound the enemy again…and again…and again…”); some innuendo is spoken while characters moan suggestively off-screen. Amidst dialogue/action choices, players can choose to drink with other characters; players' character is sometimes seen drunk and moaning as the screen blurs (e.g., “Ugh…my head…I swear I will never touch another drop of mead…”). The words "b*tch" and bastard appear in the game.
