Xbox console-exclusive TUNIC gets free demo weekend on Windows


The world is filled with unique and exciting indie games, and TUNIC is becoming another gem. This interesting game is an action-adventure title in which you take control of an adorable fox, as you explore the world and fight creatures of darkness. It’s been in development for a while now, and the developer, Finji, wants to bring the latest demo to people instead of an actual E3 or PAX event.

This means a free demo weekend, starting Thursday August 27th and ending Sunday August 30th, during which any player can enjoy an early version of TUNIC as much as they want, as long as is always within the time limit. However, the demo is only available on Windows and will not be available on Xbox at this time. To play you’ll need a Windows computer, a modern game controller (like one of our best PC game controllers), and you’ll either need to grab the demo from Booth Indie Arena or of To smoke each time the demo is uploaded.

The developer also mentioned that the demo may need a fairly decent gaming rig to run well, but using the Shift + Q the keys can cycle through different resolutions to hopefully help the game run better if you notice your frame rate is suffering. Finally, the developer will host a live Q&A session on his Tic Sunday, August 30 at 2:00 p.m. Pacific, 5:00 p.m. Eastern, if interested fans have any questions after the demo ends.

Sadly, that still doesn’t tell us when TUNIC will officially hit Xbox and Windows devices, but it’s nice that gamers can get their hands on the game even from the comfort of their home.
