View Full Version : Demo Issues!

10-08-2007, 10:18 AM
I've not yet got around to playing the Egyptian Sorcerer Demo but the Norse Warrior Demo refuses to work, it starts up fine, I select the pre-created character and then it begins to load. The problem is it never actually loads anything, the loading bar never makes any progress.

Is it just me or are other people experiencing this?

After reading the reviews this game got, I wouldn't even bother with it (this game has one of the lowest metascore ratings of the games available on Steam). Why do Valve put so many crappy games on Steam. Most 3rd party games are either from companies that have closed down, or games that are no longer supported by the developers.

You're not alone - there has been a post running elsewhere in the forums 'cos the demo was out way before the Loki forum was added.

Check this link:

It looks like this isn't going to be one of Steam's most popular additions - it the demo doesn't work how are they going to sell the full version?

The demo doesn't even execute for me. It just pops up the preparing to launch window, then it's gone. There's no way I'm buying a game if they can't even get the demo to run right. What a waste of space...

Same here. Progress Bar doesnt even move. My hard drive light is off which means there is absolutely no activity. This game is a turd. Off my precious hard drive it goes and into Cyber Garbage sphere.

Hi, just writing to say the same. Waited for the demo to download and try out. It goes to the loading screen and then... nothing. Totally frozen after you pick your character and try to load the game. Passing on this one.

Same for me.

Norse demo downloaded on both a vista machine and one with xp pro.

nothing at all. loading.....................................

i know the norse demo i downloaded from fileplanet works, so im having a difficult time figuring out if to buy the steam version incase the game will never work on steam.

What a waste of time, I just got through the Egypt demo, I wish I could have the time back that I spent.

Same here, all i get is "LOADING", then nothing.

Looks like this game wont sell much even with the D3 buzz going around. Especially if they cant get the demo to even work.

So this comment is a tad late but I actually wanted to try this.
