Too bad the demo is not for Mac (but then again, few are.) Perhaps the full game will be Mac-friendly? It looks really interesting.

So far it is just what I expected. Downloaded to my laptop, but it didn't quite have the horsepower to run the game (but if I had played with the video settings, maybe it would have worked fine). Instead I next downloaded to my PC which had no problem running the game. Great voice acting, beautiful graphics, very atmospheric and an intriguing story line, Harold is a likeable character and I've already played about 45 minutes of the demo. It is what I expected and it is not a short demo. I am eager to play the full game.

That's great ergggo! That is a great length for a demo! I take it that means that the game will be a good length! Thanks for coming back and letting us know.
