This the demo built for London Gaming & Anime Convention, improved based on the feedback given by the many attendees that played during the weekend. You...
Imagine being trapped in a game, a game you are forced to play because it means your life, a game being controlled by an insane and unknown individual who loves to see a challenge. This is you, and the host is Dyer. You have been strapped with explosives and the only way to avoid them setting off is to reach each checkpoint, while avoiding deadly obstacles that are either made to kill you, or hunt you. There is only one hint to your freedom, a secret. You must find the secret of escape if you are to survive Dyer’s Game.
The Animeleague staff were brilliant to work with, providing us tables and equipment if needed, we were invited to speak at the opening ceremoney and a Q&A on indie games development so we had plenty of opportunities to get involved with the attendees.
I also had a chance to play through some of the other indie games on show, including some watch worthy titles such as Kraden's Crypt, Legena: Union Tides, Narcisistic and #Dungeon, as well as other titles with potential such as Bard to the Future, Playtanic and some current releases like Spelmy and Space Farmers.
Of course several people had a chance to try Secret of Escape, and were thrown back by the challenging gameplay. While there were some technical issues, it's good to see a lot of people enjoy the difficulty and showed a lot of determination to finish the eight level demo, some of them even succeeding in the LGAC exclusive challenge of finding the hidden passage to win a random mystery Steam Game Key.
The original LGAC demo had a video and the hidden passage challenge which have been removed to provide a more closer experience to the released game.
Many thanks to Animeleague for arranging the Indie Zone, as well as the other indie developers, exhibitors, vendors and attendees for making the convention such an awesome experience, I hope to return next year.

@cwiiis and blame my eyesight if you want, but I don't see the huge difference between DVD and HD quality in about 90% of videos.

@cwiiis The only main advantage people know about is the storage, which is only used to store a 1080p resolution format of the movie.

@cwiiis For interactive stuff, I've noticed, but rarely used because people only seem to pay DVD and BluRay programmers for menus. :P

...it's just lazy, I pre-ordered the Lego Movie DVD so I could have a physical copy that I could watch whenever I wanted, this isn't fair...

...I guess with some being featured on Youtube, there's no point, but you should still provide more to make a purchase worth SOMETHING!...

...even then, DVDs still have enough space for a 2 hour movie, making ofs and deleted scenes. This stuff is being omitted on purpose!...

Even Emmet's speech is amazing, it's so powerful and I'm a sucker for slow dramatic piano pieces. #LegoMovie
