Demoniak is an interactive fiction adventure in which the player guides four superheroes in an attempt to stop the evil Demoniak entering our dimension and doing dastardly things by sealing his gateway.

The player may 'become' another character at any time and give that character instructions, objects, such as weapons, may be passed from one character to another.

Involvement of Alan Grant

Alan Grant, a comic creator who worked on Judge Dredd and Batman, was contacted by Palace to get a "fresh approach to a game". As Alan described himself as "computer illiterate", unable to play games more complicated than arcade games, he admitted he will probably never play his own game (Source: Interview with Alan Grant in Amiga Power #1, 1991/5 shortly before the game's release).
