    Default Nearly Departed (Demo)

    Downloadable demo of the John Green's point & click game Nearly Departed. Now let's hope the full version of this game will be released soon.

    Download Here

    Windows ~ Zip file: 16.3 MB
    Mac ~ Sit file: 14.6 MB

    NB: New Intel Macs and Windows Vista users could experience problems with this demo game.

    Click and hold on room objects to activate the verb disc. You will see a set of teeth, an eyeball, and a severed hand. The teeth are for mouth related actions (talk to, lick, eat, bite), the eyeball is for sight related actions (look at, read, examine), and the hand is for physical action (use, take, push, search). Use the disc actions to interact with the environment. Click and hold over what you want to interact with, rollover the proper icon, and release the mouse button.

    Click the mouse button to skip through dialog. Be careful not to miss something said that was important.

    Rollover the bottom title bar to open the inventory drawer. Rollover the hands on the left and right to scroll when you have lots of items. Click an item to "pick it up" and turn it into the cursor. Drag it over what you want to "use" it on, and when it's highlighted click the mouse again. Double click to clear the cursor and put the item away. You can also click and hold while looking in the inventory to open up the verb disc and use those actions on inventory items. You can also drag an item onto another in the inventory for some interactions.

    Press F1 or the M key to bring up the menu.

    Shouldn't just the old thread be updated?

    Yes, I know, but that thread is reserved for the full version of the game, which isn't released yet. So I thought a thread for the demo version would be okay. Also the full version of this game will be different from the demo as announced.

    Edit: Updating the other thread sounds fine to me too, but wouldn't this cause confusion once the full version is released. I am not sure till how far the full version will differ from this demo.

    Okay, I closed the original thread, and added a note with a link to this thread.

    Let's hope that the full game will be finished soon

    I have a MacBook and I downloaded the file: nd_mac.sit and it doesn't open on it's own. What program is needed to play the game?

    .sit is a compressed file format for Mac (comparable to the .zip compression for Windows). I'm not quite sure if there is a free software to decompress such files - maybe you have StuffIt on your Mac already?
    Otherwise you can download the StuffIt Standard, however it is only free for 30 days.
