Both the demo and the game are available through Steam with the demo being free and the game currently having a 20% discount to make it only 7.99 (was 9.99).

I actually stopped reading the review after the first line

I've played the demo and watched a play through of the original mod, but want to come at the full game fresh.

OK after reading this review I went and got the demo. Honestly I don't get it. The narrator is witty and funny sometimes, but either they didn't get the feel for the game through the demo or the demo is a good representation of the game and I don't understand it.
The review mentioned choice, I didn't see any in the demo except staying in a room for a little longer pushing 8.

In demo there is no choice. In game it is all about the choice. And consequences of those choice(s). Still, the demo is a good representation of the game - it the narrator, Stanley (you) and the enviroment.

Thanks for the heads-up - I enjoyed the demo, I still won't be buying the game though.

It was an amusing way to spend half-an-hour.

I watched a stream of the game yesterday. The demo is not a good representation of the game as I suspected.

This guy deserve some money regardless of what you think of they game. I would have donated money if he didn't actually sell the game. We need more of this.

Played the Mod and absolutely loved it, very clever. Played the demo the other day and I thought it was great too, but there are references to the original mod and to the pre-release trailers as well, emotion-boothes anyone? Anyway I bought it for 7.99 on steam and felt a little guilty about not paying full price. I have a day off work tomorrow and I'm looking forward to a couple of play-throughs.
