How long is it? I keep hearing that it's short, but is it short in a waste-of-money kinda way?

I bested it in a day, still haven't found all the artwork though. However for a tenner I'm not complaining.

Around 5-6 hours for most players.

In the conclusion: theNarrator's and thegameplay, shouldn't there be a space between the and the word after it? :)

Looks nice, might give it a try.

I was thinking of downloading the demo this morning. Looks like I am leaving the PC running over night again.

Any company that provides a Mac version of the game and then has the demo download maxxing out my 10Mbit connection gets my approval. I almost have to buy the thing out of principal now.

The demo has convinced me. The animation alone is worth it for me.

I'm one of those people that has to smash every single box, bin, crate, bottle, thing on my way so games like this take me ages.. Actually, come to think of it all games take me ages. I spent about 20 hours on my first time through HL2. Bioshock kept me going for about 30. I'm still playing GTA IV (damn boxes keep re-spawning! :p )

I really like this game, the script is pure genius.

I guess i'll give the demo a shot and if ever my pc can't handle this game, you'll be able to hear me yell at the damn machine from across the ocean

They respawn in Precipice too.

The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of any voice-overs, apart from the narrator. I agree with the comment about the grinding too - there's too much combat with too little story.

I've managed to get the cat furball once - didn't realise the odds were that low!

I've got my best 'rake' now and i've only done one boss fight so hopefully im only half way through - its great fun. Trying to block those friggin mimes is a pain in the arse.

I don't mind it, you can't really give a voice to tycho and gabe, shame the narrator only appears at the starting area :(

Oh, I think the cat furball chance is greatly exaggerated, I got him to do it twice.

Hmm, I may have to get the demo for this. Mimes hehe.

Got the demo earlier. It's incredibly short! But I enjoyed it a lot so I might have to splash out for the full version.

Bought it from Xbox Live Arcade. Great fun. Good PA humor

I played the demo and bought the game right after I finished the demo. There is a LOT of humor besides the obvious storyline stuff such as when clicking on random things. I thought the turn based combat system would be boring, but it's actually pretty cool and the animations are hillarious (tossing oranges or the triple special.) And it runs on everybody's favorite OS (assuming your favorite OS is Windows, Linux or Mac.) I wish every game was like that. I completely beat the game with the exception of some of the music and artwork and while it was short, it was great while it lasted.
