If you are also one of those gamers who continue to believe in virtual reality, Demeo is one of those games that invites you to continue to hold on to what is still a burning nail for many. It’s experiences like this, fun and unique, that give meaning to this technology.

The quintessential American slumber party where you roleplay in an 80’s basement but play through glasses and watch your characters shoot tornadoes and showers of arrows at the table. This is Demeo and unbelievable as it may seem, it’s a real delight.

Demeo has everything we’ve come to expect from virtual reality

With an equally fun solo mode, but with the main advantage of being able to play with friends or strangers in games of up to four players, Demeo puts us in front of a table with three different scenarios and five heroes to choose from.

From the hand of the Knight, the Bard, the Archer, the Assassin and the Mage, each with their own skills, our challenge takes us through three scenarios as we crush enemies, collect gold to gain skills and open chests that allow us to add even more powers.

In addition to moving and attacking by picking up the character with your hands and placing it wherever possible, turning your wrist will show you all the ability and power cards you’ve achieved throughout the game.

Once or after cooling down, they will be in charge of taking our strategy one step further, either through devastating special abilities, summoning beasts to fight against us or of course healing when we are in a hurry.

Easy to understand but with a lot to master

With exquisite controls that allow you to remotely zoom in on the table with a pan across the room to practically jump into the action, the first thing that strikes you about Demeo is how accessible it is.

It’s one of those titles that seem like an endless world behind the page, they become the simplest and easiest to understand in the first bars and little by little and as you decode their depth and all the elements that you can use in your favor In order to win, you happily return to the starting point knowing everything you have to master.

It might fall short with just three scenarios, but due to their randomness and the difference in using one character or another, two games in a row will be difficult to taste the same for you. It’s amazing how much it can offer with a relatively simple idea.

Unlockable elements such as new aspects for avatars and characters, dice and other cucamonadas make Demeo one of those games that you want to go to from time to time instead of burning it up in one session. And just like someone looking in the board game closet on a Sunday afternoon, the next day can be more virtual than real.

VidaExtra’s opinion

I’ve long wanted to get closer to Demeo to see if all this barrage of positive comments he’s been receiving in the midst of the pandemic was right or wrong. And yes, they weren’t wrong in the slightest.

Aside from being one of those virtual experiences that feels like you’re actually sharing a room with your friends, it’s going to be difficult for all of you, whether you’re an expert or a newcomer to the world of tabletop -rolls are. play so as not to end the game with an ear-to-ear smile Without a doubt, this is one of the most important paths that virtual reality has to take.
