You are a girl with a demonic heart, trapped with a group of suspicious individuals. A demonspawn arrives, setting off a chain of mysterious murders. Can you trust any of your fellow captives and find love amidst the chaos? Or will you fight for your life alone?

  • Female protagonist
  • Hundreds of conversation choices - you pick nearly every line the main character says
  • Two human male love interests (Ran and Kaisar); some flirting with a female human (Vita) and a male demonspawn
  • An alignment system for the main character
  • Customizable name
  • A dark story full of mystery and deceit
  • Bad guys and plot twists :)

You wake up in a strange place, only to realize you have been abducted along with seven other people. A city guard, a royal soldier, a witch, a bard, a librarian, and two criminals - all captured and brought together by an unknown force.

A demonspawn appears, delivering a chilling message: there are demonhearts among you - people blessed with regeneration, but cursed to be hunted by everyone else. You know the truth: you're one of them. And you'll do anything to keep your secret safe.

As tensions rise and trust erodes, mysterious deaths start to occur. Can you trust anyone? Amidst the chaos, you may find yourself drawn to one of your fellow captives.

Will you survive the demonspawn's trial?

This game is set in the Demonheart universe, but knowledge of the other Demonheart games is not needed to enjoy the story.
