Back in the 90s and 00s, we loved regularly getting magazines with demo discs in them. In fact, there were so many games that we bought because of a good demo.
Nowadays, while we we have the means to access demos without burning discs, we still miss the idea of curated demos so with that in mind, we present our second Indie Bandit Demo Disc, a selection of indie games with playable demos that we think you might want to check out.
