Explore, discover, adapt, fight and survive!
The mesmerising and intriguing trailer for Little Devil Inside had me wide-eyed and begging for more!
At first glance it looks like another indie styled adventure game based around hunting monsters, Displaying a unique yet familiar art style and animation reminiscent of little big planet mixed with flame and the flood.
It definitely has its own unique flavour too. An almost anime-style wide-eyed protagonist and an undeniable running tone of humour which is sure to be a treat.
To my delight and with a little research there is a wealth of information available for Little Devil Inside.
Little Devil Inside
The South Korean developer Neostream, summarised the game quite nicely;
“Little Devil Inside is a truly engaging 3D action adventure RPG game where you are thrown into a surreal but somewhat familiar setting with humans, creatures and monsters to interact with, learn and hunt – journey, survive and discover the world that exists beyond.
This game is not just about killing arch-demons and saving the world. Take in the atmosphere and live a realistic life in an unrealistic world. This is a game that tells stories about people with ‘unusual’ jobs such as hunting monsters and what happens in their everyday life doing so.”
Characters with character
There are also 3 playable characters and they are all unique with different strengths and weaknesses.
Neostream goes on to develop this point further in their Kickstarter saying;
“You the main character is not a super hero or supernaturally gifted with powers in any way. Through the game he will develop and become strong but within human limitations. The character will be vulnerable and can be sick, be hurt, diseased etc.
Such a character will need to study its enemies and rely on technology to confront them and gain experience and strength. The hardship, pain and emotions will be visually expressed as-is within the game.
Other characters will each have their own set of specialities and areas of strength/weakness and have a role in the main storyline.”
You Little Devil!
Now for some Big shocking news (from the archives!) and somewhat controversial!
Little Devil Inside was set for release back in 2016. Reaching its Kickstarter funding, it was due to release on Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One but it never did.
Sony has signed a timed exclusive deal with Neostream for the PS5. The PS5 will now get Little Devil Inside even before the backers of the Kickstarter 5 years ago on all other platforms!
Not the best fan loyalty from Neostream but business is business I suppose.
The Kickstarter page has plenty of unique insights to the battle, looting and exploration systems developed to make Little Devil Inside a very attractive and playable package. check out the battle mechanics below
