Release party? Hellish ultimatum? Whatever you call it, Double Fine is hosting an event at its offices on October 1st when the Brutal Legend demo will become available to all. Dubbed the Brutal Legend Dem-o-Thon, tune in on the official Brutal Legend site to enjoy:
- Q&As with followers of the official Twitter feed
- A message from Tim’s Swine flu proofed bunker
- Live axe lessons
Swine flu? Oh yeah, that’s right. Apparently Ormagoden — the monstrous god that pulls Eddie into the mythological world of metal — is threatening to mess you all up and give you swine flu if 666 million people don’t play the Brutal Legend demo. So, better make sure you’re around at 12pm PST (midday) on October 1st!
There’s a short video promoting this event featuring Brutal Legend designer Tim Schafer and Ormagoden, so keep an eye on the BRUTAL! YouTube channel in a bit for a HD version.
[October 1st, 2009 at 11:43am GMT+1] Don’t forget that the demo is out today — possibly already depending on your location — and the release party is in about eight hours! Keep an eye on the official Brutal Legend Twitter feed so you can ask the developers questions.
