What you need to know

  • TUNIC is a unique action-adventure game that sees the player take control of an adorable fox person.
  • The game has been in development for some time, slated to launch as an Xbox console exclusive, as well as on Steam.
  • This weekend, from August 27 to August 30, 2020, players will be able to try out the game's demo for free.
  • It's a timed demo, so players can play TUNIC's demo as much as they want during the time period.

The world is fillled with unique and exciting indie games, and TUNIC is shaping up to be another gem. This interesting game is an action-adventure title that has you take control of an adorable fox person, as you explore the world and fight creatures from the darkness. It's been in development for some time now, and the developer, Finji, wants to bring the latest demo to the people in lieu of a proper E3 or PAX event.

This means a free demo weekend, which will start on Thursday, August 27, and end on Sunday, August 30, in which any player can enjoy an early build of TUNIC as much as they want, as long as they're still within the allotted time frame. The demo is only on Windows, however, and won't be available on Xbox at this time. In order to play, you'll need a Windows computer, a modern game controller (like one of our best PC gaming controllers), and you'll need to either grab the demo from Indie Arena Booth or from Steam whenever the demo goes live.

The developer also mentioned that the demo may need a fairly decent gaming rig to run well, but using the Shift + Q keys can cycle through various resolutions to hopefully help the game run better if you notice your framerate is suffering. Finally, the developer will be hosting a live Q&A on their Twitch on Sunday, August 30 at 2 pm Pacific, 5 pm Eastern, if interested fans have any questions after the demo is over.

Unfortunately, this still doesn't tell us when TUNIC is officially coming to Xbox and Windows devices, but it's nice that players will be able to get their hands on the game, even from the comfort of their home.
