    Arx Fatalis Preview
    Author: Drew Lanclos
    Date Posted: March 2nd, 2002

    Introduction

    Fishtank Interactive did something relatively uncommon on March 1st by releasing the demo to their upcoming first-person RPG, Arx Fatalis. The key phrase here is "upcoming". Most developers these days push the title out to stores first, and worry about the demo later. Usually this is for good reason, of course - with the game development finished, it's a relatively trivial issue to produce a truncated version of the game for purposes of a demo.

    On the other hand, Fishtank has taken the road less traveled - They've released the demo to Arx Fatalis at least a month and a half ahead of the release of the actual game. This has its good points and its bad points, of course. The bad points I shall address later. The good point is that it helps to build anticipation and excitement over what's shaping up to be a truly awesome game. So, with that in mind, let's start looking in at it.
