This was ok I suppose, I haven't played any of Skull's other creations and to be honest I thought it would be worse. There was no weird humor just a couple of things that didn't try too hard to be funny. The plot was hard to understand and it didn't make me want to play the full version. The grammer was quite awful but I could understand nearly all of it which means he's getting better. There was a lot of names given at the start which confused me and it took me until the end to work out what was going on, the characters made no sense and none of it was very convincing. The map detail was quite good, not very full or empty but the general positioning of things weren't very good, the first place you arrive at there is a savebot with three screens to the right with monsters and then another long cutscene. After that you go to another place where you kill this 'apprentice' which is followed by the end cutscene. Starting out with 50 attack and 40 defence is mostly annoying and boring. The only thing I really liked was the end cutscene which was quite good and made sense.
I can see a bit of effort went into this but it didn't achieve that much, the scripting was fine apart from the long pauses between things happening.
Don't shoot me for writing heaps about a demo but no one writes any reviews these days.
