Default Demo 80 days

I just tried playing the demo of 80 days. This game has the worst interface I've ever encountered in a graphic adventure game. You can walk forwards and bakwards with the keyboard, but if you want to make a turn, you have to use the mouse! With the keyboard you can only move sideways, not turn around. And I couldn't figure out how to interact with my environment at all. I hope it's just me, but boy, they have to do something about it because the game is nearly unplayable in this way. And that's a shame, because the pictures look really nice and the game looks promising, form what I've read and could see in the demo.

It'll take some getting used to if you're not familiar with it, but it actually uses an extremely common control scheme (in action/adventure games). Believe it or not, it starts feeling pretty intuitive after a while.

I haven't downloaded the demo yet. How is it, besides being controlled by the mouse and keyboard of course (which is fine with me)?
