A Strong Introduction to Demonic Adventure , November 20, 2022

At the time I'm writing this review, only the game's prologue and character creation are available to play, but that's more than enough to see what an amazing game Zorlok is already shaping out to be. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that this is one of the strongest game intros I've encountered.

Stylish UI and atmospheric music set the scene for the player's introduction to Tommy (it is his story we follow during the prologue, to get a picture of his life pre-demon-summoning). We follow him through part of a ttrpg campaign, some tumultuous teen feelings, and a meeting with a local witch (The witch, Harlow, is a personal favorite, and I'm excited to see how the author handles her character in the future)

Eventually, the demon emerges. I don't want to spoil too much, but the character creation for Zorlok is probably the most extensive I've ever seen in an IF game, full of thoughtful details, trans-affirming choices, and more than few excellent jokes (especially if you take the time to play more than once and gague Tommy's reaction to different choices). The music also sets the tone during this sequence and really helps hype the player up. All-in-all this is an excellently written, masterful introduction to the story. I can't wait to see where it goes.
