Well -- not having a home computer right now REALLY puts the damper on playing this so-called " Demo " y'all keep harping about .... but I do like looking at all the cute babes that come in here to use our community internet cafe!! ( Slobberrrr!! )

Anyway ... since I can't play the demo ... will someone tell me what the purpose of the demo IS exactly?? Do you get to see Sirrus & Achenar?? Or travel to Spira -- or is that Spire ... or Haven ?? How BIG of a download IS the demo ??

Just wonderin .....

There are 9 or so "nodes" covering one of the round buildings in Tomahna plus a passageway underneath it. You don't get to see either of the brothers nor travel to any other ages. There's one FMV sequence.

That help? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As for the purpose... you get a look at Tomahna... you get a sample puzzle... you get to play with features like the camera, journal, and amulet... and you can see how it runs on your computer.

Adventure games typically have very short demos, since they can't give you much gameplay without majorly spoiling you.
