TOXIKK & Free Trial Next Month

The Toxikk website announces a September 9th release date for TOXIKK, the upcoming first-person shooter. After 20 months of early access, they are polishing the throwback game for release. REAKKTOR STUDIOS celebrates the news with this release date trailer and a new Making of TOXIKK trailer. They also announce plans for a free trial version coming at the same time. The developer explains this will be a demo, but they are avoiding that term because of Steam restrictions. Here's word:

HOW'S THE FREE EDITION NOT F2P?
FREE TO PLAY is giving the base game away for free and then LETTING YOU PURCHASE LITTLE CHUNKS OF IT FOREVER (cosmetic and/or gameplay affecting items). For many reasons, we have a deep antipathy against micro-transaction fueled business models.

But if we let you FRAG LIKE IT'S 1999, why not also give you a demo like it's 1999? The idea behind shareware and demos may be a bit out of fashion (just like Arena FPS in general), but there really isn't anything more transparent to let you experience a game. And if you like it, you pay once and get the FULL GAME with ALL its features, customization options etc.

IF IT'S A DEMO, WHY NOT CALL IT A DEMO?
The term DEMO has a defined meaning on STEAM that comes with specific technical restrictions. E.g. people who play a demo on STEAM cannot play online against people who own the full game. Which is obviously far from optimal for a multiplayer game.

Plus, THE FREE EDITION OF TOXIKK IS A LOT MORE THAN JUST A DEMO: It comes with the full core experience, has no competitive disadvantages versus the FULL GAME and let's you play TOXIKK for free for as long and often as you like.
