AGS member Andy has written a nice review of both the Stomping Boots demo and the freeware game Dark Side of the Moon.
Captain Disaster in Death Has A Million Stomping Boots (Demo):
A fun-filled 45 minutes of adventure gaming, that just left me wanting more to play! Luckily there is also a free feature length game when I look upon the website :)

Captain Disaster in The Dark Side of the Moon:
This is an excellent game packed with puzzles and humour. Quite a few Sci-fi references to enjoy.
One of the things I enjoyed about this game is the Achievements section. Every now and then you will get an achievement, some are logical acheievements, some are for doing something funny.
Lots of inventory items to try and figure out what to do with, and nothing truly frustrating. There was maybe one hotspot that was difficult to see - it is near the chasm.
I wouldn't call the game a masterpiece, but I do highly recommend playing :)

(Talkie version of Dark Side coming soon, including a GoldPieces giveaway - more details in the coming 2-4 weeks if all goes to plan!)

... whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortunes and all that... I've decided that, for the time being, the answer is no. Until we've got a definitive release date I'm not comfortable taking anyone's money (not that I couldn't do with a massive influx of money, but that's another story!) - so for now and in the immediate future, I'm shelving the pre-order with GoldPieces idea. It may happen in the future... but not right now.

Well, to say that results of the poll were a little underwhelming is like saying Captain Disaster is a little bit silly sometimes. I think if we do go ahead it will be a very simple pre-order scheme, not an ambitious combination of pre-order and investment scheme. I'll let you know! :-D
