Dem Oh! Round Up Feature Art

Dem-OH! March Round-up

That’s Q1 down, folks! It’s been a pretty weird one for gaming with some unexpected indie hits, divides in the community over certain titles, and the sad cancellation of our beloved E3…


There’s a feeling of liminality hanging in the air as so much continues to change so fast, like we all need a quick break to take it all in. AI is rapidly becoming more usable as the creative world tries to futilely fight against it and Microsoft and Sony continue to openly battle over exclusivity agreements.

There has never been a better time to step away from the doom-scrolling and world drama to enjoy some personal down-time. Hopefully a couple of the upcoming games below will help you do just that.

Stand-Out Demos

(in recording order)

Zero, zip, zilch, nada!

Make note that we don’t allow just any old demos in here and this isn’t a ‘best of the month’ category. Only the most worthy earn a spot as a 5/5 Stand-Out!


Voltaire: The Vegan Vampire Demo on Steam

Check out the Preview here!

Find the answer to the age-old question “how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” in this laid-back genre mash-up.

Dem-OH! Dashes

NOTE: Ratings are basically representative of how much I enjoyed the demo and the likelihood that I’ll come back to the title in the future (or even would liked to have continued playing it right then), with regards to gameplay, quality, and (of course) personal preference to genre, etc. A zero represents that the game is too non-functional to really get a feel for it. It is essentially a non-rating.
