Tomb Raider - The Dagger of Xian (Demo)

Found 18th Mar
Hello all. I know I'll probably get 'frozen' for suggesting something currently called a demo. But think of it as an episodic release of a full free game. Licensing means the game must be free, the developer won't even accept donations. Paid games on Steam which offer much less than this 'demo'.

The game - Think of the epic worlds and storyline from Tomb Raider II (1997), the interface from Tomb Raider VII (2006) and the graphics from today. Basically if you liked 'Classic' Tomb Raider, then you're in for a treat.

p.s. There might even be a dragon or two.... 2910929-VKAHH.jpg

I don't think it's a deal is it? Shouldn't it be in freebies?

Thanks op will have to give it a try as never played original games and got them on humble bundle but look cery dated! So is this a remake of original game?
Looks great. TR2 was better than the original TR IMHO.
The graphics and lighting look really good in this demo.
I just hope I can map my own keys as I don't like using arrow keys for travel - they're too bunch up.
Seems to be wasd on mine.

Controller or k/m ?
Wow graphics are amazing and mine have defaulted to high not ultra and 75pc rendering at 1080p on an rx 470 4gb.

Getting 40. To 70 fps depending if im cave or swimming
How do you get our of the starting cave area or is it locked and the demo? Unchartered would give me a clue by now

Just explore the area. Don't forget you can Crawl and use Flares. Or you could use a video walkthrough, but where's the fun in that - youtube.com/wat…FO4

Ha i tried a walkthrough of original tomb raider 2 and it looked different as they had a tiger to shoot and climbed up somewhere on the edge. Ok I will give it another try. I am really impressed!

Don't worry, the tigers are still to come. Oh, and they can now swim!
Aha jumped across the other side to a ledge...
Bahh, Windows only . Heat anyway.
Ironic the improved graphics actually get in the way of the gameplay; much harder to tell what's navigable and what's not instant death.
It still retains that tomb raider magic though; they just need to sort out those load times - less than 1 second pls!

Oh and the game bugged out in my play through too!
Died in the trap protecting the jade dragon, respawned out of bounds and immediately fell to my death, then respawned again at the next waypoint, skipping a section of the level (and my opportunity to collect the secret )

Also couldn't figure out the intended route to fall down at the end of the demo, so just jumped all the way from the top; plop!
I feel like I skipped a puzzle (edit, just watched a walkthrough, and looks like I did skip a small scripted event)
