    Mjow - a demo for Aura?! Oh how cool - I've been waiting for one to show up. I really love the look of this game and am looking forward to picking it up as soon as I can when it's released. A demo will be a nice little appeteaser.

    Thanks for the heads up

    Guess I'll go tie up my phone line for the rest of the night ... darned dial-up ... <kicks dogs squeaky toy>

    It's actually a pretty good demo. Bit short, I thought. Still can't decide if I'll want it. Looks great though and I like the music...

    Strangely enough, there's a bit of music that has a spot which reminds me of that old Ace of Base song, 'I saw the sign'...

    I can't place that music, but it does sound extremely familiar somehow...

    Hi Kestryll, I liked the demo quite a bit, myself. My hope is that they were 2 good examples of the puzzles that we can expect in the game. The one in the round room was a neat little puzzle that you can get by futzing about with it - always kind of fun - and the second, involved a number of aspects that had to be completed in order to get a main result. I like those, and always find them satisfying. And graphically and musically, the game is quite impressive. I wished I could explore further and get across that bridge outside - and there promises to be more puzzles in the areas that we could explore, so there is a lot more to look forward to in that area alone. I believe it's due out next week sometime, I just hope someone in this area has it on the shelf. They're a bit slow on the uptake around here.

    I got it open, but no clickable spots after that.

    Inki, I found some things on the desk to the right as you go in the door, watch for your jewel icon to light up.

    The opening of the globe is the last scene in the demo proper. If you've done all the puzzles there is a postscript telling you that you've finished the demo.

    Looks pretty good to me. Obviously they've taken a few pages from Myst et al but the pics still looked a little flat to my eyes. Glad to see they're catching on to what we all love - eye candy and great puzzles!

    I did like it. I'm just still undecided... Pre-order or wait for it to come out... The demo is rather fun even if it does have just the two puzzles, and I liked the music and graphics.

    Bah, I'll probably end up ordering it from somewhere anyhoo. No, I don't get out much and my little town doesn't have any big stores which carry games. One town over, transportation issues... *sigh* I have got to get a car...
