Studio Byte4Games and publisher BadLand Indie announce that Demon’s Crystals, a dual stick arcade game, is launching its Steam Greenlight campaign today. In Demon’s Crystals players fight the possessed inhabitants of the world to collect the life-sustaining crystals that the Urican demons depend on. The Urican have always been at the top of the food pyramid, but now these astral demons must fight for their own survival. Fight your way through the levels to restore peace to the world and keep the Urican alive!
Demon’s Crystals is a frenetic twin stick shooter where you will have to guide the Urican demons through countless hazards in order to restore peace to the world. With the help of a variety of weapons and power-ups, you will be able to defeat the massive enemy hordes.
The Urican have always been at the top of the food pyramid. But now these astral demons must fight for their own survival. Then one day three mysterious entities called Sarkon, Ghoros, and Ornak arrive bringing with them a worldwide change. Suddenly, the once peaceful inhabitants of the world are aggressive and destructive, acting as if they are possessed.
Urican demons are dependent on their life source: crystals. Now they must face off against the other beings of the world to recover these crystals. Luckily they are a plentiful resource. Help the demons collect as many crystals as possible and show no mercy to anything that stands in your way!
