One of the strongest guilds in a fictive MMORPG is embarking on the last expansion’s final raid to become the highest ranking guild in game. The event is so tremendous that even the MMO’s lead developers at Gizzard are watching the raid on live-stream. Things start to slowly fall apart when the guild’s outcast “Cookie” makes his return sporting an illegal race and bringing power-grinded companions. Friendships are put to the test, internships are on the line, and the gamers are forced to take action in the “real world”.

Great! You should check out the demo, or one of the LP videos on Youtube.
This one is quite good: Youtube.com

The gameplay is highly experimental, this is not a traditional RPG, it is more like a mix between RPG, adventure puzzles and an interactive visual novel. Cheers.

If we play the demo, can we pick up our progress where we left off when the full game comes out?

Yes. You just copy your save games into the same directory in the full game’s folder.
1. Locate your demo’s game folder.
2. Copy Save 1, Save 2 ect…
3. Locate your full game’s folder
4. Paste the save games
Let us know if you have any problems=)

Probably, since the save files is lying openly in the folder. It will most likely work with just copying the save file over to the full game.

I thought i would mention that game within a game has been done before with the Dot Hack series of anime and video games. There is a new one out as well although I don't think it has been translated to English for the game called Sword Art Online. The anime has been subtitled to English. If you like those type of things you should check both of them out.
