If you want a little glimpse into the future, look no further than the new demo release of A New Beginning, though expect to be both intrigued and horrified by what you see in Daedalic's acclaimed eco-thriller.
In the year 2500, mankind is on the brink of total annihilation due to environmental disaster. The only hope is to send a small team back in time in to prevent the cataclysmic events from ever happening. The first jump to 2050 is already too late, so it's left to a young woman named Fay to return to present day in order to persuade a cynical retired scientist that his research is the key to saving the world. And then the bigger challenge: convincing the world it needs saving while wealthy industrialists fight to interfere.
The demo weighs in at nearly 1 GB, beginning with the prologue and including parts of the opening chapter, introducing the two lead characters, Fay and Bent Svensson. The sampler can be found at the official website.
