Warsaw, Poland – December 5, 2016 – Book of Demons, Thing Trunk’s unique deck-building hack & slash, today receives its second and most eagerly anticipated class: the powerful spell-slinging Mage.
With today’s update, players can collect and combine 16 new class cards to overcome papercraft-like adversaries using the Mage’s spell-focused play style. A fragile unit with high damage output and the power to summon minions, the Mage differs quite significantly from the Warrior class and will require players to experiment with new card synergies and combinations to conquer the most difficult dungeons.
Book of Demons launched on Steam Early Access in July to very positive Steam reviews and has already earned several awards including Best Game Art at Casual Connect 2016 in Tel Aviv. The third and final class is set to release early 2017.

About Return 2 Games Series
Return 2 Games is a series of original mid-core titles inspired by the golden days of PC gaming. Thing Trunk’s plan is to build seven games in total, each unique in terms of genre and theme, but all sharing the same vision: to make deeply engaging experiences accessible.
Return 2 Games draws inspiration from the early days of PC gaming when developers weren’t afraid to innovate, defined new genres, and created the most memorable experiences. Return 2 Games titles are designed to deeply engage in a matter of minutes. They explore powerful universal stories, like good versus evil, that are immediately familiar. Return 2 Games caters even to people who don’t play as much as they used to, who find casual games shallow and unengaging, and who can’t invest enough time into hardcore games to really enjoy them.

About Thing Trunk
Thing Trunk is a small game development studio based in Warsaw, Poland. The core team is comprised of six dedicated developers. The 3 founders―Filip Starzyński, Konstanty Kalicki, and Maciej Biedrzycki―are casual game industry veterans who (despite a level of success) became disappointed with the miring trends in the market and scrapped their former brands (Codeminon and Twinbottles) to focus solely on the ambitious Return 2 Games idea. Since then they are trying to prove that making AAA quality content is possible in a small but experienced team with lots of passion.
