Been spending this afternoon tracking down demos for most games in both packs, then taking a crack at them.
Decided it's not worth paying more for pack 1 - Played all of them, and only Penumbra Overture peaked my interest. Maybe World of Goo and Gish, but got bored with them pretty quickly.
Pack 2 demos:
Osmos is lovely; simple to pick up, difficult to master stuff. Chilled out.
Cortex Command doesn't feel finished. Every time i'd press escape to go to the menu, I either got kicked out of the game entirely, or couldn't find the way back in to the game session. Also, the writing is really small and the tutorial blended in too well to notice. I still don't know what the pick up item key is, he just sort of... did it.
Braid looks very nice, doesn't play bad. It annoys me that white Tim can't jump, even using the beasties; i'm missing something here!
Revenge Of The Titans looks fun, is fun, but the demo runs a vertical wall of difficulty around level 9.
Machinarium looks lovely, but is very reticent - takes a while to figure out what to do. Not sure if getting stuck in room 2 is a good sign.
Overall, this deal's looking pretty good - will pick a (low Â¬_Â¬) value and make a final decision before Friday!
