Kalypso secures The Dark Eye license, Demonicon back on track

Thursday, 10th February 2011 04:09 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Is it Easter already? I ask because The Dark: Eye Demonicon has apparently risen from the grave, thanks to an agreement between German publisher Kalypso Media and The Dark Eye license holder Chromatrix.

Originally in development at Silver Style Entertainment, Demonicon went stealth when parent company The Game Company collapsed and Kalypso bought up available assets.

Now that Chromatrix have forked over rights to the RPG’s name, Kalypso’s Berlin-based in-house development team, Noumena, is forging ahead for a 2012 release.

Demonicon joins the Drakensang games and 90′s series Realms of Arkania as an adaptation of major pen-and-paper RPG system Das Schwarze Auge, known to English speakers as The Dark Eye.

The latest Drakensang game, River of Time, hit digital distribution at the end of January.

    Oh, thats a great news – love “Das Schwarze Auge” and Demonicon has looked very good. It is a Competitor (?) for Dungeon Siege III – ok, 2012? Määh :(
