Resolution Games CEO Tommy Palm was excited to finally share the launch date for Demeo, with the game having been announced in December 2020 and gameplay being teased in early March 2021 to the delight of many fans and awaiting players.

“We knew that RPG fans were going to love Demeo, but we had no idea just how excited they would be until we released its gameplay reveal trailer last month,” said Palm. “It has been so fun hearing from players all over the world about how excited they are to get their hands on the game and experience their beloved tabletop game nights again with their friends after a long year apart. Demeo is going to be unlike anything available in VR today, and we can’t wait for players to take on the dungeons of Demeo on May 6.”

With the May 6 date set, Demeo will invite up to four players to join together and take up the roles of various RPG classes as they explore dungeons and attempt to chase after treasure, fighting off the hordes of monsters that lurk therein.
