Why would you release a demo that new players have no idea how to play? As it stands, I doubt I will buy this game due to the frustration of not knowing how to play. I think I may like it, but I could learn how to play in 2 hours with help or play for 10 and maybe learn 60% of what I can do. This is surely going to hurt them when the game releases.

Could the developes maybe post something here to help out? During beta, wasn't there something to help get started? Heck, post some of the manual, if you have a demo surely the manual is close to being done?

Unfortunately this demo is more of a showoff for heroes experienced players due to it's dificulty.
Don't worry the game will have a tutorial. Unfortunately it seems it wasn' ready for the demo.

Yes, the readme just gives me keyboard shortcuts. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I didn't have too much trouble despite having not played any HoMM games before. What I have done, though, is play all the Warlords series, and the Age of Wonders demos, all of which are similar games. So maybe go and grab some other demos ;-)
