Daemonsgate is a fantasy role-playing game in which you play the role of a young hero who is the only hope left of saving the besieged city Tormis. It is surrounded by demonic hordes so it’s no easy task! The goal is to search the land of Hestor for a wise wizard possessing knowledge necessary to stop the invading demon army.

You start off all by yourself at the "Pigge and Ballbearing" inn located within the city. ou can converse with many non player characters, the innkeepers tend to be more knowledgeable - so they can be a valuable source of information.

There are a few minor subplots and distractions from the main task as your journey progresses. But the game is event driven so there is no passing task X before completing task Y first. The game uses three-quarters overhead perspective and boasts a conversation system with over 70,000 words.

This game included a gimmick that makes it of interest to collectors. It's one of the few computer games to come with a VHS tape. On it was the short video Travis Sewerbreath. This was a tongue-in-cheek story of the last Daemon Hunter being interviewed by a reporter. It doesn't really add anything to the game other than a few cheap laughs.
