Evil Islands demo released

From Russia with love - a demo of Nival's 3D role-playing game

When we were sent beta code for the English language version of Nival Interactive's latest role-playing game "Evil Islands" recently, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the Russian company behind the previously disappointing Rage of Mages series had turned out a rather impressive looking 3D role-playing game. With gorgeous graphics, an interesting storyline, amusing characters and enjoyable quest-based gameplay with a healthy sideline in stealth, things were certainly looking highly promising.

Now you can see for yourself what the fuss was all about, as the demo version of the game which we played last month is now available to the public. Featuring the first of the eponymous islands and several quests to complete, it should give you a taste of what you will find in the full version of the game when it is released this spring. You can grab the demo (which weighs in at a relatively modest 91Mb) from any of the following outlets -
