The game looks interesting but can you upload a video - I really have no idea what I'm up for.

A demo would be ideal, though. I don't know how it is for other people but I usually avoid buying games that don't have a demo so I can try them out for myself. The only other thing that could convince me real good I want to play it are lots of good reviews and probably video ones.

But really if as a developer you have the capability to make a demo of your game - that's the ideal case so people can decide for themselves, independent of reviewers opinions or the lack of such. :)

I am rating this with the mindset of it being an interactive novel. The 39 Steps is a "digital adaptation" of the adventure novel of the same name that was published in 1915. I hadn't heard of the novel before getting this "interactive e-book", but it's been adapted a few times into movies and said to the an inspiration to the James Bond stories. The digital adaptation is divided into Events, like chapters in a book, which you can then go through in order, it's mostly reading with slideshow backgrounds…
