After a brief dialogue to give you a bit of an idea of what is going on in Demon Gaze II
, you’ll get to create your character. The first part of creating your character: choosing your alignment. You can choose to be good, neutral, or evil. Good will be more defensive, neutral will be balanced, and evil will be more offensive and you cannot change this later in the game. After creating a character, you’ll wake up in some strange place and have no clue where you are. You’ll pretty quickly figure out that you are a member of the Revolutionist party. Somehow while you were in that place, you acquired the Demon Gaze and with it, you can absorb demon souls after defeating them. This can come in real handy, but you will need to learn how to use it.
You’ll meet Muse and Prim, sisters who work at Stella’s Place. You’ve apparently known them since childhood, but can’t remember a thing. Toma is a servant at Stella’s Place. Stella’s Place is a tavern downstairs, but it’s also headquarters for the revolution; you live there as well. Cassel Glondike (the guy who rescued you) is in charge of the weapon shop in the underground area of Stella’s. Prometh also lives at Stella’s. She supposed to be the mortician, but she seems more proud of being the broadcast writer. Prometh is definitely a character, and I really like her! If you die, you’ll have to pay her to bring you back to life. You can also store items in Prometh’s room. I would also recommend visiting her often to extract ether from items and using it to power up other items. Eventually you’ll meet Lezerem Rantile, whether or not you want to. If you played the first Demon Gaze, you will probably remember him. He’s so obnoxious, but his Maintenance Room is useful. With it, you can increase your likability with the demons. I mean, who doesn’t want to go on a date with a demon to make them like you more?
Basically, you hunt zones and take the souls of the demons in charge after you beat them. You can then get those demons to fight beside you. Each time you defeat a demon, you’ll also be able to increase your sphere of listeners. You can’t successfully revolt without the backing of the people, so it’s important to make sure the people hear the revolution broadcasts. Eventually, hopefully, you will be able to overthrow the evil ruler Lord Magnastar, or maybe even figure out what’s really going on!
