I had a blast with the demo as well, great fun. The puzzles weren't hard, but it definitely doesn't seem to suffer from the "it's really just an slightly interactive movie" syndrome as some other recent adventures have (I'm looking at you, "15 Days"). At the same time, the presentation was very cineastic and engaging. I also liked how the character exposition is nicely staggered - no heavy-handed monologue that dishes the entire backstory of the protagonist at once, but rather told alongside the present-day plot, integrated into the puzzles.

The production values are top notch. The hand-drawn art style is sharp and detailled. The music cues repeated now and then, but are of high quality. The voice acting was top of the line. I especially like Kim.

Must buy for me now.
