I just played a few minutes of this and it seems pretty fun, it's certainly not a hardcore RPG though, it seems to be more along the lines of Shadowgrounds Survivor but with a few more RPG elements thrown in. The bad guys don't seem to drop any loot, just materials to use as resources (just like in Shadowgrounds). The only thing I don't like so far is the control system, W A S D to move the camera and the mouse to move you, it feels like it should be the other way around.

Had a play this morning. Graphically very functional and no issues on max level with a 8800 GTS. Completed the demo in about 30 minutes and no real point in redoing it as not able to advance down either skill tree. Have to agree control method feels totally opposite to what it should be. Made controlling the camera very awkward. I would want to play a longer demo before deciding if this was a buy. This assumes they change or at least give an option to configure the control method to a more sensible one.

Yeah, agreed. felt kinda cumbersome and the demo was over in no time. I think most of it must have just been the cinematic.
