Great little demo, I hope that the full release comes soon because I really want to know more about the story.

Really fantastic! The perfect blend of quirky humor, slice of life realism, and dark Faustian fun! I loved everything about this, from the dialogue and direction to the style. You should be proud of yourself for taking this on alone and I really do hope your kickstarter campaign goes well!
The only things I'd say to keep an eye on are typos and optimizing the game enough to cut load times for each area a bit shorter since some of the transitions run a little long and take away from the perfect pacing. Wonderful demo, looking forward to more!
Thank you so much for your support! So glad you like the game! Yeah, already working on optimizing that load times. Could you give me an example of that typos? I'm not a native english speaker but I thought everything was ok :_)
PS: I absolutely love the rap part! :D
Haha, thanks! You did a really good job with the English so far. Off the top of my head, the sequence with the car accident, you spelled it as "break" instead of "brake". I'll take a look back at the demo and call anything else out here though.
This voxel style is really something I can get down with. It looks so old school and so modern at the same time and I'm just mesmerised by it!
Ahem, sorry, got sidetracked! This demo really blew me away, it's so amazingly well put-together and charmingly devilish! The characters are all begging to be fleshed out more, the story seems to be very Faustian with a very liberal dash of goofiness and the puzzles are so far shaping up to be nice and brain-taxing!
Add to that a pretty awesome soundtrack and inevitable plot twists and this could be something really amazing! I'll be backing the Kickstarter for sure, and you all should too! Well, I mean you should give the demo a try first I guess, but I nigh-on guarantee that it'll make you wanna throw money in the dev's general direction!
Oh yes, as for you IndieBug, keep up the awesome work! I super enjoyed this =)
I'm happy you like the game that much! This comment made my day! Thank you for your support on the crowdfunding, I really appreciated. Hey, guys, listen to Michael and support too! XD
Really enjoyed your gameplay, I had so much fun watching it (your accent is so cool). Already subscribed to your channet and waiting for the second part. A lot of suprises awaits...
I really liked the demo. I wish you luck in kickstarter!!!
A great DEMO, waiting for the full game!!!
Demons Never Lie was so much fun to play. I can't wait for the full game!! It's such a cool concept and the art in the game is very unique!!
The click to walk controls are kind of wonky but besides that this is a very interesting and fun game
I can't wait for the full game to be released! This is amazing!
Very cool. I like the way the art is done and am pretty intrigued by the story. I think voice acting would add nicely to this.
In my video I started the demo and will make a second one to finish it soon. Hopefully that one doesn't end up as a two minute video or something :)
Great gameplay! Thank you for your support! You've left the demo at a good point for a second part, don't worry. Good job! :)
What a cool wee game :)
Hey, just got done playing your game and I really enjoyed it. Our main character is super spoiled and I think I might hate him (although my assumption is that a lot of that is going to tie into the mistakes he made in his life). I loved the "this might happen" flashes that John needs to avoid being built up as "okay, this is obviously bad so I'll avoid that" and then being hit with the the same flash when you think you're doing the right think with the girl you love. It played with my expectations and I found it very compelling.
Even though I stole the money, I don't think I'd give people the option to unless there were alternate ways to accomplish your goals without it. I noticed other, less selfish youtubers, not grab the credit card and be confused.
Overall I think the full version has a lot of potential and I wish you the best on your upcoming kickstarter. I think the demo is a strong proof of concept and hope that goes a long way to helping you reach your goals. Thank you for reading my thoughts on the demo.
Edit: If you ditch the maze I'd be okay with it. lol
Hi! I totally agree with you. After watching several youtubers I drew the same conclusions. I'm preparing a new demo update changing this details to give better experience to the gamers. An also, deleting the maze scene (which everybody hates XD). Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you like the story. Can't wait to see people reaction to the full version. Things are going to get really dark...
this looks fucking awesome
Tiene muy buena pinta. Estoy deseando tener un ratito libre para jugar...
This is rreally good cant wait for full game
Gave it a go...
WOW, Ocaso's voice was SO COOL! How did you do that? I believed you were a demon for a moment XD Taking the credit card is part of the game I'm afraid. It's just a puzzle, don't take too seriously. But, yeah, you are totally right. Stealing is bad for karma! :)
Really cool game. I like the art style and the humor is very good.
Thanks! Awesome video, so funny! Sorry for the bugs, I'll fix that in the next version.
No problem, it made it even better. Also i have to know, was the hedge maze intended to be beaten that way? xD
I thought only developers would know the "trick" to solve the maze, but I was totally wrong XD I watched the gameplays, some people don't know it, but others like you just click and wait. I'm thinking of getting rid of the maze on the final version. I don't want the game to get boring at that part for this reason. What do you think?
Honestly had such a good time playing the demo! Really intrigued to see how John progresses as a character. Definitely supporting the kickstarter to see the progression of the story!
The demo was very interesting. Though I noticed that you put john in twice in the scene at the park bench. Beyond that, I'll be looking forward to the kickstarter.
Oh yes! The characters' names were messed up on that scene. I uploaded a new version where this issue is fixed. Thank you for pointing it out. Great gameplay!
I'm excited for the kickstarter! The demo was a lot of fun and I love how you used various styles to make something that looks super sharp, but also very different.
Has lots of potential, I like how the drama and humor is combined. :)
Hello there ! What a game! Superbe story, I love the Pixelized graphics, and the way your animated the characters is just great! Again nice job on the story, as soon are you're in it, you can't just walk away haha. Great job!

Love the art style, the visuals, the controls! Super exited for the full story, will John really accomplish a better life? ∠( ᐛ 」∠)
Thank you for your awesome gameplay! So happy you like the demo. Love the signature with a little pentagram star! :D
Thank YOU for this amazing gameplay! Also thanks for the advice, I'll take that into account to improve the final version of the game. Love the voices, so much fun!
a very complete demo! I love games with a good story.
I'll keep an eye out for kickstarter, good luck!
