Just a day after the game went gold, Totally Games have released a playable demo of their upcoming starship simulator 'Bridge Commander.'
The demo can now be downloaded as a 112-megabyte file from the official 'Bridge Commander' site, and will require 350 MB in order to install. In order to run the demo, you will need at least a PII-300 processor, 64 MB of RAM and a 16 MB 3-D graphics accelator.
Part of the reason for the large file size is that many of the game's opening cinematics are included with the demo, meaning you will be introduced to the game by none other than Jean-Luc Picard himself. The actual playable part of the demo consists of the full game's first three missions as well as the "offline multiplayer" Quick Battle Mode.
The full game will allow players to interact with both Captain Picard and Commander Data over the course of 8 episodes, containing a total of about 30 missions. The game was sent off for duplication two days ago (story), and is expected to arrive in stores in early March. However, the game can already be pre-ordered from both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
To download the demo, please follow this link to the official 'Bridge Commander' site. Meanwhile, new screenshots from the game are available at the Bridge Commander Universe, while mirrors of the demo can be found at 3D Gamers, FilePlanet and TrekNews.de.
