Difference between tech demo and Penumbra?

Hello, All,

I've played the tech demo before, and I'm pretty darn interested in Penumbra, but I can't seem to find any info on what the key difference between the two are.

Are they the same game, only the tech demo is incomplete?

Are they two different stories so I'll want to play through both of them?

Let me know--I'd like to get the game today!

The games are not really connected except for the basic gameplay.

Penumbra: Overture is a whole new experience.

The Tech demo was a new technology being showed off to show proof of concept. (correct me if im wrong please, team)

The story is pretty much the same in overture, but the environment is different and everything has changed from the demo for the most part.

Of course there are some similarities... such as, both have a flashlight, both have the same physics (well of course its the same engine lol) both are horror type games.... etc etc

No.

Like Thomas said, overture is a whole new experience. Read up on teh overture site under "game" for more information.
