    "For starters, all three versions of the demo will soon be uploaded to Archive.org. This includes the initial Nextfest version, the patched version, and 'The Big Update' we launched six months after the demo's initial release. Additionally, anyone is welcome to distribute copies of the demo across the web. There is no DRM for the demo."

    "While we really love the demo and still find it enjoyable to play through today, it hasn't aged all that well. It is simply not a good representation of the game anymore. Many of the critiques we frequently received are problems we addressed years ago, and many of the suggestions to improve things have been implemented. I still hope to make a blog post in the near future to explain a bunch of these improvements! To put it bluntly, the upcoming release version blows the demo out of the water. Everything has been refined, portions of the demo map have been reworked, performance is better than ever, and our AI is now capable of much more. Everything feels a lot better. Nothing is left untouched. Having the demo out there doesn't make us feel as comfortable anymore because we know how much things have improved."

    Tested using custom 2560x1080 and 3840x1080 resolutions on my 4K HDR TV.
  5. Verified by User:Macgovern on 2024-06-01
    Forced on by opening the game's config file, setting vk_hdr to true, and running the game using the Vulkan renderer. Colors are washed-out with no way to correct HDR output (see https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?t=75802 for a generic example).
  6. Verified by User:Macgovern on 2024-05-31
    Tested using my Xbox Series Core controller.
  7. 7.0 7.1 7.2 Verified by User:Macgovern on 2024-05-31
    Internally, game exposes XInput and DirectInput, and game is unable to use any controllers if Steam Input is enabled for the game, a controller is plugged in and recognized by Steam, and both XInput and DirectInput are disabled.
  8. Verified by User:Macgovern on 2024-05-31
    Tested by allowing simultaneous controller and keyboard and mouse support in-game, setting up a custom Steam controller profile relying on cursor detection, and deploying it in-game.
  9. Verified by User:Macgovern on 2024-06-02
    Details of openal32.dll found in game's directory clearly state it is OpenAL Soft.
