*edit* There was a hilarious bug in version 1.05, if you downloaded that it won't work at all. Links have been updated with version 1.06 which should work correctly.
**edit** links have been further updated with version 1.07 which contains a custom icon for the game file, fixes the map-crashes and is in a Zip file rather then a self extracting executable, so AV programs should be a little less paranoid.
***edit*** V. 1.07.1 is out, fixed two crash bugs and slightly lowered difficulty of some enemies, (Bandit & cockatrices)
Since it's been requested so much, I put together a new demo that contains all the features and updates put into the game since the last demo version. Since there are so many (admittedly minor) improvements I won't mention them here, but suffice it to say you should have a much cleaner and more complete experience and it should start feeling quite a bit like an actual game now.
The demo only features about 10 maps I think and it's not representative of the final experience since it's missing two recruitable npcs, several cutscenes, 30+ maps and so on.
Of course I'm only about a third or so done with the game. I haven't had a lot of time to work on the game lately as I've been spending most of my days looking for work downtown and enjoying a few 'lovely' temp jobs.
When things settle down I can plug away at it for a few good hours and get a cutscene or a few maps done, it's just a matter of time until it's complete. I would love to have the game finished and done for you guys but I can only work on it so fast. :P
Anyway, hope you enjoy the cleaner demo experience. As always the game is contained in a self-extracting executable so simply give it a folder to empty out in and it should contain all the necessary DLLs and other add-ons to function correctly without needing to install a run time package or RPG Maker XP. If it doesn't work for you for some reason let me know and I'll look into it.
Oh and do feel free to spread the word to your friends about the game, the more people enjoying it the happier I'll be. Oh also: If I receive enough in donations I'll try to get Faustie to whip up a few commissions (title screen, alternative character sexes (female, herm, erect, etc)).
Oh, the link for the download is Here and on the right hand side of this page on the menu.
