The Demo


#1

Is the Demo really only one turn?

Every time I do anything, the demo ends.

Write a song, demo ends,

Hire a band member, demo ends,

End the turn, demo ends.

Is the demo really that short? It would be nice to at least write a song, get a band and perhaps see what gigs are like…

I’m sorry, I understand the worth of keeping the demo short to sell the game, but it’s not much of a demo :frowning:


#2

No. it should go on for longer than one turn.
When I played with the demo, I got a full band together, wrote several songs, had quite a few gigs.


#3

Hmmm. That’s sort of what I thought, I wonder what could be wrong.


#4

The demo is rediculously short, just three turns for me, plus the added bonus of a runtime error if I try and start a new game immediately after the promotion page.


#5

That’s strange, the demo lasted quite a few turn for me… Recruiting band, writting songs, made a bit of gigs, then it ends.


#6

That’s why I’m wondering if it’s a bug.

I would sure love to hear the “official” word on the matter.


#7

I’m not the official word, but do you have the latest video and sound drivers for your computer? That is almost often the issue.


#8

Ditto on the 3-turn ending for me. Just downloaded the demo today; maybe it’s a bug in the latest version?


#9

Had the same problem, 3-4 turns and the demo ended.
A bit disappointing really and made me a bit hesitant to buy the game.
But I took a chance and did it and it was worth it. :smiley:


#10

I’d have bought the game too but I noticed that there are bugs with buying high priced items without owning the lower price equivelents. Seems like a bit of an oversight. I’ll probably pick it up when these issues are sorted out.


#11

I’ve been away from holiday, the game should have about 60 turns in the demo as I recall. I will investigate immediately.
