has anyone else tried the demo for this game?

there's already a thread about it over at OO

http://www.octopusoverlords.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=15663

i'll echo what's been said over there.  the game seems cool enough, but the demo was just too short for me to really see what consequences my actions will have.  that whole aspect seems very superficial to me at this point.  

the camera is a little bit awkward on the pc, it would be perfect if the camera locked behind the character as he moved

but the atmosphere and the mood is really cool, hopefully it'll get good reviews once it comes out

you can d/l the demo over at gamespot

I thought this was renamed Indigo Prophecy...

I read about it in the latest free mag I got.  Sounded interesting if they can pull it off.

I played it and loved it.  I'm pretty sure I'll be picking this one up.

I made it through about 3 endings.  Very clever design - I hope this game does really well but I fear it might get overlooked.

The guy talking to me ala Rod Serling was kinda creepy.  I'm not sure that was a good design decision.

The demo we played was the European demo.  The game is known as Fahrenheit over there but inexplicably will be called Indigo Prophecy here.

Edit: dammit stiffler!  You pwn3d me!

I think that guy who talks to you in the beginning is the writer?

the game is definitely cool and I really do hope that the story and gameplay holds up throughout.

The one thing that might kill the game is if one of your actions causes the game to end down the road.

I'm downloading the demo now!

I'd definitely enjoy this on the Xbox since it out deos my PC graphic card, but teh controls were innovative, and the ssuspense within the story was very well done.

Really loived it.  It's like the next generation of adventure games everyone's been wishing for...

That said, I'll probably go with the console version, though I'm curious as to how the interactivity will work.  The interesting mouse movement scheme put me off at first, but then I grew to like it.  However, if they go with something similar on a console, it may bog the gameplay down a touch.  We'll see, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

That's like blaming owls because I suck at making analogies.
