Rusty Lake: The Past Within, the upcoming surreal mystery adventure currently has a free demo available. You can try out the 16th game in the brilliant atmospheric surreal horror adventure series with a free demo on Steam for PC and Mac. Available as part of Steam Next Fest 2022.
This demo will give you a flavour of how immersive the final game play will be. Including the 2D and 3D look and feel of it. And how the local 2 player mechanic will work – where you play with another person on a separate device. And if you don’t have anyone around to play this 2 player demo with, you can use Discord within the demo to find someone to play with online!
You can also check out the official trailer included below, to see the unique way Rusty Lake are using cooperative game play in this puzzle-solving game. Don’t forget the demo is only available on Steam until February 28th 2022 10am PST as part of their Next Fest celebration of upcoming games.
