shapez 2 demo is sticking around for another month - you need to try this

By - | Views: 23,674

shapez 2 is absolutely going to be a big success when it hits Early Access later this year, and you can try out the demo for a good while longer now so the developer can ensure they get it right.

It's a pure factory-building game. No aliens, no combat, just you and your conveyor belts spreading across a huge map. The first game in the series had a great idea with you cutting up shapes to make different shapes, and this simply builds upon the basics of it in a much more visually rich setting, along with plenty of new game mechanics.

Check out the trailer below if you haven't seen it before:

Currently no changes are planned for the demo, as the developer continues working on the full game. They are working through feedback to improve various areas of the game like the reusability of shapes and production lines. Thankfully the dev said there was "very little negative feedback" so overall they're onto something good.

As of late last week, the demo had been played by over 109,477 unique people - impressive.

The Native Linux demo is available on Steam until March 25th.

I feel, I could get no satisfaction, at least from the first things to build. I never wondered "Will I be able to make this?!?", but only "How long will it take to make this?", which is... not interesting?

For anyone on the fence here: GET THIS DEMO! This was one of my favs from the recent next fest. Such a good game, and I don't even usually like factory sims. Really looking forward to full release.
