Codex Gamicus

Spawn: In the Demon's Hand is a video game developed and published by Capcom for the Dreamcast and Arcade, released on February 1, 2000 in North America. It is based on the Spawn comic book series created by Todd McFarlane and produced by Image Comics. A port was planned for the PS2 as a launch title but it was later canceled.


Al Simmons was a military operative who was murdered by his superior, Jason Wynn, then sent to Hell for his previous work as an assassin. Five years after his death, Simmons makes a deal with the demon Malebolgia to resurrect him from death as a hellspawn so that he could see his wife, Wanda, again. However, he soon finds out that his wife, in the five years that he was dead, had married his best friend, Terry Fitzgerald.
