Unrest Demo is out (10 days earlier than expected)


Hey Backers,

You know that feeling when you suddenly see a huge spike in website traffic?

When you look at the source to see that Rock Paper Shotgun wrote about the Unrest Demo that launched on Steam today?

When you state, dumbfounded, as you realize that the demo was supposed to launch ten days later and ohmygod there may be some bugs left in there?

I'm writing the post in that panicked state. But hey, the cat is out of the bag, so might as well as download the demo and play it.

Having a heart attack,

P.S. Please excuse any bugs, we're working on a patch to fix those asap.

      @Randy: Whoops, looks like our script missed a few of our backers. I'll fix the error right away.

      Awesome demo, and rather interesting. Although I did notice that I wasn't in the credits 'Prophet level' or even on Historian.

      @Rebecca: Thanks for letting me know, I'll fix that shortly. And glad to know you liked the demo :)

      I really like the demo! The graphics and music fit together very well, like the whole world has a rhythm.

      Small? Spoiler below.

      I did notice one bug: I received the Naga Treatises in my inventory after talking to the Naga even though I talked to him about toy trading instead of reading material. I spoke to the Naga a second time after getting the toy camel, and when I asked, he offered the treatises which I already had.

      @Zerotown: Got it, I will fix both these issues. Glad you like it :)

      @Dave: Can you try installing the vcredist_x86.exe file in the game's directory? Maybe that will solve the issue.

    6. Creator Zerotown on June 16, 2014

      I've had that problem as well. I resolved it by installing the 'Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (x86)', by clicking on vcredist_x86.exe in the game's default directory.

      Really enjoying the demo! Things I like are:
      - the story and dialogue
      - the smooth interface
      - music and small animations

      All in all, it feels very atmospheric. Well done and can't wait untill the full game releases! I did encounter a bug though: when I clicked on (something like) 'Partial mandate' in my Journal, I got the following error: (Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library: 'this application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way'.

      Unfortunately I can't get get the demo to launch. I downloaded and click play and... nothing. Probably an issue with Steam rather than the demo itself.

      @Zerotown: Demos don't get their own discussion threads, I think. You're welcome to discuss the demo in the main Unrest steam community:

      Oi, pretty exiting stuff. Can't wait to try it when I get home! On a sidenote: is the Steam-forum functioning? I was looking for early impressions by users and found that the link re-routed me to the store-page.

      @Soma: I honestly do not know. I thought I had set the release date to 26th, but somehow it got released on the 16th. It might be that I was tired and sleep deprived when I set the date, it may be bug - I legitimately do not know. No use in pointing fingers, though :)

    11. Creator Sam on June 16, 2014

      How was the demo released early?

      Oh well, hoping it all goes well!

    12. Creator Pyrodactyl Games on June 16, 2014

      @Andy: The functionality isn't the game, but you can message me on Kickstarter about any bugs you find! (or leave a comment here, I read those as well)

    13. Creator Andy - sinner of Original Sin ^^ on June 16, 2014

      Hey guys, this is really good news! I'll check this out if I have time.
      Are you going to give us the opportunity to report bugs? Maybe you add this function to your website?
