Visceral Wants The Dead Space 2 Demo To Impress
Demos are the best ways of determining whether or not you'll be interested in the final product.
Now, we know many survival/horror fans are already planning to purchase Dead Space 2 the instant it hits store shelves but for others, perhaps a playable demo will help them make a decision. According to what Visceral Games executive producer Steve Papoutsis told G4TV in a recent interview, the Dead Space 2 demo will be both better and more prompt than the demo released for the original game. Said Papoutsis:
"Last time, I just heard a lot of comments like 'The demo was way too hard,' or 'It kind of came out after the fact.' We're really putting an emphasis on making sure that we have something there so that new people can check it out. There's a lot of people that seem interested and we just want to give them an opportunity to check it out and get into it."
Visceral refuses to underestimate the power of a great demo and they're clearly working hard to produce a gameplay sample that will blow everyone away. Papoutsis added that their goal was to create a demo where you say, "Holy sh**; I'm going out right now, I've got to get this!" The problem with the demo for the first title was that it didn't arrive until a month after the game's release, which sorta defeats the purpose. These days, demos for big projects hit at least a week before the final date and sometimes, they're available even earlier. So we'll be looking forward to the Dead Space 2 demo, even though we know the game will rock.
