I thought the fact that you weren't talking about when there'd be a demo would mean that it would come out after the release date.
We are very sneaky Wink

Certainly sneaky!

Thanks!

Going to make the next 5 days at least somewhat bearable Tongue

edit:

Awesome beginning messages. For so many years I have been thinking up ways to get my players prepared. Messages like this have always been in the forefront of my mind. Really sets the mood and alters the expectations of newbies that might not have any idea what it's about.

Menu is great too,

Some more criticisms - unspoiler worthy but just in case;

Spoiler below!

-Great use of movement control. I like how you can lean to upright yourself!
-FOV/image effects are cool
-I had to turn off image blur as it just makes it look really bad - hopefully that doesn't ruin the intended experience...
-Runs flawlessly on High with my PC, which is a few years old
-Hmm not sure if I like all the items being highlighted - edit: seems to only highlight within a certain distance. I guess that's alright. Undecided...
-Hmm x2 not sure I like how it auto adjusted my view to look at an objective item just then Sad
-Mouse feels really responsive
-Insanity effects are awesome - hello Call of Cthulhu!
-Physics really improved from Penumbra (hope full version takes advantage of them!)
-Really hates alt tabbing with XP. Can't use mouse.
-Water part, scary!
-SUPER IMMERSED

OK TIME TO PLAY!

Wow, played 10 min of the demo and this is it? Oo Its, its....... unbelievable! Its 100000times better than i thought!

Only things which i dont like is that you cant save when you want! I know you can close the game and it will autosave, but i think many people like it to have more savepoints^^

Second thing is that with the highlighted objects! Wink

Damn this game is art. Have to play further.

Actually I think the save system is perfect.

If you have to quit, fine, quit - it saves.

Then you have checkpoints.

Any other saves aren't necessary. If you want to save before you open a door, that's ruining the experience. If you want to say half way through an intense and difficult sequence, that's ruining the experience.

The only problem would be if the power goes out or if your game crashes - but I'm sure the checkpoints are sprinkled very thick so you will lose maybe 30 seconds of gameplay at most.
