Zeno Clash Demo

Steam has word of the availability of a free Zeno Clash Demo on Steam, offering the chance to sample ACE Team's new fighting game. There is no word on the contents in the demo, but we have an explanation from ACE Team: "The demo features a portion of the single-player campaign and the first tower level from the Challenge mode. Demo players will be able to post scores if they complete the first tower challenge."

Hump: Thanks. Ugh, no time for games this weekend. I am also behind with gaming news.

Really nice game from an Indie.

Great art style. The combat is good, but not great.

However, it still FEELS like an Indie title when you are playing it. That's ok but I won't pay $20 to feel that way. $10 - $15 is perfect for this game. I will purchase it when it goes on sale again.

This wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but it was OK. The controls are a bit hard to get used to, and the range of the punches is strange. I back away from an enemy thinking I'm safe, and he throws a punch that hits me. I don't know if the full game eventually gets to something different, but all I saw was, cutscene, fight a few people in an enclosed space, repeat.

There is more open and long levels later on, but it mostly is the same gameplay (which I found awesome).

I'll get it if it goes on sale for $10 again.

You'll fight a boss who chucks squirrel bombs at you, which he snipes to ignite. It's a frenetic shoot-sprint-reload-snipe-pray boss battle with dinosaur-sized Dali-inspired creatures grazing in the background. It's worth trying the game just to see the crazy art style and to see if the melee controls are to your liking, and I think it's a pretty worthwhile purchase that supports an excellent and unique new indie developer.

Is the story funny or anything? I assume the demo doesn't expire so I can take my time

It's funny in a LOLWUT kind of way. It's very nonsensical. Kak.

The link in the website launches in Steam, the password prompt was from the Steam client.

Yes, but you linked to it from the weblink, so it's probably confirming who you are since you didn't go to it from within the Steam client, even though it opened the Steam client to get there...if that makes sense.

Clicking weblinks to access things within Steam, I'm always being prompted to login.

As for the error downloading, I think is a separate issue.

This is the game with dual-wielded fish guns, isn't it? Is there such a thing as a game that's too weird?

If you clicked Install from the link...of course you have to log in...it's the Steam webstore, not Steam itself.

if you're having problems you need to restart your Steam client. Stupid bug but at least it now works.
Steam restarted itself when I canceled the password prompt. It did it three times. It finally downloaded after the 4th try, I guess 4th time's a charm now?

I searched the Steam forums too, it looks like a lot of people have this problem with demos. This is the first time it has ever happened to me, and I've been using Steam since HL2.

Ant, the game is great fun. If you enjoyed the melee in Chronicles of Riddick, then you'll love this since it has even more depth. The art direction is excellent. The story isn't bad either.

How about a non-Steam demo?

Zeno Clash uses Steamworks.

The Steam forums come to the rescue again... if you're having problems you need to restart your Steam client. Stupid bug but at least it now works.

And every now and then, when purchasing/downloading new items from the store, it will prompt for the username and password.
