    Recently, free game demos seem to have been making a resurgence. Often they're released on a temporary basis as part of promotional "digital showfloors", a trend that has been accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic. As part of this year's summer sale, GOG have released seven demos of upcoming titles. One of them is for Vagrus - The Riven Realms, the interesting-looking post-apocalyptic fantasy caravan management strategy RPG crowdfunded on Fig last year. Those who backed Vagrus have had access to alpha builds since the beginning, including an open world chapter released last month, but now the general public can check it out.


    The Vagrus Prologue is available on GOG for free until June 15th, and will also be available on Steam starting from June 9th as part of the upcoming Steam Game Festival.

    Have played a part ways into the GOG prologue demo, and am a bit undecided with it so far.

    Cool game. Like the atmosphere and introduction. Sets up the game nicely. Also the prose is well put together, not overly verbose and effective, with plenty of options for different paths through the dialogue.

    For anyone who likes Choose Your Own Adventure type games, it seems like a winner.

    The description of the Emperor doesn't have half reek of the Master of Mankind from 40k, though. One has to wonder if that was on purpose.

    The art style is great and fresh at the very least. I'll give it a shot.

    Edit: Damn I'd forgotten what a pos GOG is to use if you don't want to use their stupid Galaxy client

    Loved it, wish there was something like it for mobile.

    As for Vagrus, I've been excited about it since it was first mentioned here. Looks dope.
