Painkiller Leak & Demo Plans

DreamCatcher Interactive sends along an official statement about leaked press builds of Painkiller that also outlines plans for a full demo release next month:
DreamCatcher Games is today requesting that Painkiller fans steer clear of the latest multi-player builds that have appeared on various fan and download sites, as the releases are NOT official demo releases and are intended for press evaluation purposes only.

The company is encouraging fans of the game to wait until early February for the official single-player demo release.

This leaked build contains just a glimpse of the multi-player maps planned and lacks the depth, weapons, levels and A.I. sophistication that will be present in the official demo.

This game is better in it's alpha stage than alot of games' final version! This is a very pretty game and it plays awesome, I can't say enough good things about it! Definately pick this one up, it's gonna be the surprise hit of '04! Brings me back to the good ole Quake1 days (especially the rocket launcher) and that's exciting!

I hadn't even registered this one being in development, for some reason I think I may have had this and FireStarter mixed up. Anyway, the news of the leak made me check out the site and must admit it looks like it could be quite good - sorta reminds me of Requiem from 3DO

enahs, they should hire plumbers not higher

You are correct sir!

On a spelling note though, in the OotB where I kept having to type "crock pot" and my spell checker kept changing the damn thing to "crack pot". Not that I am blaming this on a spell checker. BTW, I really REALLY SUCK at spelling, and if I did not have a spell checker you might not could read anything I say!

Why would they put out a press demo with no depth, weapons, and crappy AI? Because they aren't particularly bright?

Perhaps because most press are soo damn happy and giddy that they get exclusive early looks at a game so far from being done, and that they get to say something about it and have new screen shots, etc. So they tend to emphasize the good parts, and ignore the bad parts? And people keep sending out crap like that, because well, they know most people will not want to ruin a relationship with said company and cease to get promotional material? Also the reviewers should be “educated” to know that this is released to just show the good side though, and get some mention of it. Something so un-completed should not have a final product ultimate value based off of it, like what traditionally the majority of the masses do with craptastic alphas!

But I am happy about it, it is a good laugh to see yet another “multi-million dollar” title to get passed around like my mama at a New Years Even part…I mean you Mama….damn it! I suck!

"...lacks the depth, weapons, levels and A.I. sophistication that will be present in the official demo"

So they sent it to the press so they could review it and tell you it sucks.

Why would they put out a press demo with no depth, weapons, and crappy AI? Because they aren't particularly bright?

I don't find it strange it has leaked, because I have this 3 level press build (singleplayer) and it has no copyright protection whatsoever and it seem to be manufactured cd's, not burnt.. so there can't be any ID on it I guess. But even then it wouldn't pop up in my mind to actually leak the thing.

"This leaked build contains just a glimpse of the multi-player maps planned and lacks the depth, weapons, levels and A.I. sophistication that will be present in the official demo."

usually it is the pretty PC savy crowd that gets ahold of early builds. I`d wager we already know this stuff posted above. One thing I do find odd, everyone who had a any kind of leaks of late has put out a Press statement of some kind. all but GSC. Odd eh?
