Fun Fridayz #14 – Freaky/Free
Mood: Doom –
Doom Doom Doomdoom Doom
The short of it: The Doom demo demolishes for its demo, despite being dodgy for doubters, dredging up demonstrations from dangling in the depths of demise.
I cracked and finally got Doom, even though I already listened to its soundtrack in its entirety multiple times. And, much like Prey, my purchasing decision was based on the demo.
While a sale actually made me pull the trigger, trialing the first level made me pick up the gun.
As nice as “Free Weekends” and betas and such are (shoutout Path of Exile beta), it’s hard to argue against the value of a downloadable, specially focused trial that gives a sense of consumer-friendly development.
