Since being announced last year, Atropos Studios has been hard at work getting Diamonds in the Rough ready for release, resulting in the release of a playable demo.
The third person, point-and-click adventure centers on Jason Hart, a high school dropout, who discovers he has special abilities that are of interest to a mysterious organization, Diamonds in the Rough. Throughout the game, Jason will come to discover the real purpose of this organization.
The demo, which includes a self-contained introduction and a playable portion, introduces Hart, and how he came to be employed at Diamonds in the Rough. The playable portion focuses on getting and reading a report, written for the Diamonds' organization by a fellow employee, Sydelle. The game manual, included as a PDF, explains the interface, which includes a thought system that will contain clues and be used to solve some of the puzzles in the game.
At 95 MB, the demo can be downloaded from the official website.
