Conan Demo

By Crom! A demo version of Conan: the Dark Axe is now available, offering the chance to get your axe into gear and check out Cauldron's upcoming third-person action/adventure based on Robert E. Howard's fictional barbarian. The demo is a 130 MB download, available on 3D Gamers, ActionTrip, Adrenaline Vault, FileFront, Filerush, Gamer's Hell, Tiscali Games, and Worthplaying. Tiscali Games has picked up some details on the content:
David Durcak from Cauldron replied to our question about contents of the Conan demo, that it should be considered as beta-demo only (control system is not finished yet etc.). It contains 2 levels set to Kordava city at night and to one of the towers. This beta-demo will run only on graphics cards with Pixel shader 1.1 support (final version of game set for February will however work also on GeForce 4 MX or GeForce 2).

Developers always drop this lame old line about how the demo / beta / leaked alpha "doesn't represent the final performance or quality".

Bull. I've NEVER seen a bad demo that turned into a good game, nor have I seen performance increase by more than a few percent in the final version.

Here's a tip. If you find yourself apologizing for the quality of your demo, just don't bother. You're better off trying to go for the extra sales to suckers who buy games based on the box art, rather than offering them the chance to see how bad your game is before they've already paid for it.
