Daemonica is both visually attractive and technically unimpressive. The game’s setting is extremely dark, bordering on gothic horror. It boasts a very nice 2D art in its menu screens, narrative overlays, and user interface. The actual 3D graphics used for the game world are slightly more primitive, but still well polished and presented. The largest drawback is excessive load times that really slow the pace of the game down.
Because much of the gameplay is more puzzle oriented, sound effects are rather minimal. Music plays a far greater role in the game’s audio presentation and ranges from dark melodies that fit the horror theme extremely well, to jaunty tunes from the highlands that frankly didn’t fit the game’s mood. The game’s protagonist also provides a fair bit of voice acted dialogue. Overall, the performance was good and ranged from the good to the groan-worthy.
