BAM! From nowhere!

Just like 1998 on my PC.
As an old school Monkey Island PC adventure gamer I´ve been anticipating the upcoming game from the creator of "Curse of Monkey Island", called "A Vampyre Story". Just now, from nowhere, the demo is out for download and just like that, the full game is out this friday!! I had almost given up hope on this game ever getting a publisher but it seems the time has finally come. For the first time in 10 years I will play a Monkey Island esque PC adventure. The only game Ive tried since 98 was the fairly recent Runaway 2. That was just pathetic. My hopes are super high for Vampyre story. So to all of you out there who are like me and grew up with Guybrush Threepwood on Melee Island. Go download the demo and try it out. Then hurry up and preorder for this Friday ! Suddenly im 13 again, getting Curse of Monkey Island for christmas. Im so excited!

*UPDATE/EDIT* Demo can be downloaded here ! And I just finished the demo. It wasnt really much of a demo but I already knew I needed a boxed copy of this game for the collection so I just pre-order my copy for friday.

Oh wow, I completely forgot about this one, maybe you should tip Kotaku? The word should be spread. I might just get the game because the art is so cool, maybe you could review it?

I think I might just do that once I get my hands on it

I'm not really into the art style. It's too Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas.

Yea it's awesome. Remember I had this on my most anticipated games of 2008 list back in January (or so)  - and well, now it's here : ) Haven't checked out the demo, but I'm definitely gettin' the game.

So, it turns out that the shop on the official site isn't available yet. Can anyone tell me of a import friendly place that holds PC games? I know of amazon, but they won't deliver it where I live.

YESSS, AVS is definitely promising.
