GameBanshee offers up a second interview with Eric Dallaire, that guy over at Reflexive we can blame if the story of Lionheart isn't the coolest thing ever. In it, he introduces one of the nasties you'll encounter, demon spirits. Here's that part:
GameBanshee: What foes will players be facing throughout the game? Care to elaborate on some of the more powerful adversaries?
SPECIAL ED: There are a wide variety of adversaries in Lionheart. Many enemies in the dungeons will be generally hostile to any intruders no matter what your business is. Other monsters and characters will be your adversaries if you are pursuing a specific faction path, while it?s possible to befriend that same group if you choose another faction point. For instance, the Inquisition asks you to rescue a captured Inquisitor who is being held hostage by a particularly vicious tribe of goblins. If you rescue the Inquisitor, you will likely have to fight the goblins, unless you have a very high diplomacy. Alternatively, if you wanted to play a meaner character, you could become friends with the goblins and do quests for them, for instance the Khan himself might ask you to take care of a powerful bounty hunter who has been killing goblins outside of the village.
Beyond the hordes of undead, goblins, trolls, and other enemies you?ll fight in Lionheart, there is a powerful group of ?demon spirits? that oppose you. While I don?t want to spoil too much, I can say that they each take a different form and wield their own special power and are pretty tough boss monsters. In my opinion, these ?demons? constitute some of the most challenging and fun encounters in the game.
Demons are always a good go-to bad guy, I think. They're like cancer, it's hard to come up with a good reason not to kill them.
Thanks to Eric Dallaire for the word about this.
