Short, but very good!

Damn, she is really sneaky!

I guess I read "affliction" instead of "affinity" with the gods. Unless it's the same concept you have in astrology (quite possible).

Hello Miro! It's me (annoying you) again. I see that you added an Old God of nature to the pantheon of F&H, the child of the duality Gro-goroth Sylvian. So we have a Trimurti now (really makes sense). But I wonder... how this one will be? What you think of a mexican life & death mask? "Death feeds on life, life feeds on death (of others)". "A god popular in (central) Vinland" (really, human sacrifices for fertility rites). Vishnu + Xipe Totec. Just an idea, of course, the stuff you make is fine in the way it is!

I knew it! Thank you for replying.

Hello again Miro! This game/demo is already awesome! Is the story focused only on these two characters or you plan to add more?

Yes. In the book "The Lesser Key of Solomon" there are two demons which match the name: "Beleth" and "Behrit". Japanese people write in kanji and have problems in translating western names, and also switch the letters "R" and "L". I believe that Berith/Beherith/Beherith is the right one since it means "pact" in Hebrew language/Aramaic (often as a pact with God/s). It's super-obvious that Miura Kentaro made the Hand of God inspired by the Cenobites ("Monks") from the movie/s "Hellraiser". They serve Leviathan (a mythical creature) which later became a greater demon in grimoires (The Sacred magic of Abramelin the Mage).  So it's not a coincidence at all that the amulet's name, Beherith, comes from a demon of another grimoire. The egg is a symbol of birth/rebirth, and the amulet works as a pact.

Curiosity: These grimoires are relatively moderns. They employ medieval titles (Duke, Marquis) which never existed in ancient times. Many demons (Baal, Amon, Astaroth/Ashtoreth, Haures) in reality are ancient gods from  Akkadik and Egyptian pantheons, turned into demons by medieval (christian and hebrew) occultists.

Nice game! A good combo of riddles and action, and the mansion is quite big. The atmosphere is also very good. It will be nice if there will be multiple endings. Thank you for the game!

 The monster concept is simple but well realized and effective. Really good work!
