Steam Demos Now Live for Ronin and The Weaponographist


Demos! Come get your playable demos!

Two upcoming indie games of particularly interest are now available in trial form.

From Devolver Digital and developer Tomasz Wacławek, Ronin is a ninja action platformer combined with elements of stealth and turn-based strategy. In the demo, you can sample three levels from the full game’s 15-mission campaign. Additionally, pre-orders have opened for a $12.99 standard edition as well as a $19.99 special edition, which includes a digital comic book and the complete soundtrack. Until May 20th, pre-purchasing the game comes with a 10% discount.

Next up is The Weaponographist, an arena combat roguelike dungeon crawler from Puuba and Mastertronic. Before the game drops on April 29th, you can try the demo starting right now and get a feel for the game by diving two depths into a dungeon full of demons and wacky weapons. Each day this week (April 20-26), the players that post the top three completion times on Depth 2 of the demo will win a free copy of the full game upon release. To enter, simply take a screenshot of the Victory Screen showing your best time and submit it on the game’s Steam Community Hub, or share it on Twitter with the hashtag #Weaponographist.

If you’re in the mood for even more demos, the Steam release calendar also shows that trial versions for Square Heroes, Lovely Planet, and Uncanny Valley are now available. That’s five games you can play around with today without spending a single cent.
