The Rise of Mooncrest Demo

The Rise of Mooncrest demo is now available from Knightmayor, so give this tactical RPG a try ahead of the incoming Kickstarter campaign!

Overload Demo 2.0

The new Overload demo is now available for testing ahead of the early access test, so try out this crazy new six degree of freedom ship shooter! I fondly remember the original Descent games. They provided some crazy six-degress-of-freedom combat, although I can’t claim that I was ever any good at it. In any case, […]

Try out the Iron Tides demo and consider supporting the Kickstarter of this viking-based rogue-lite strategy game from Crash Wave Games! This week Death by Beta received a couple of emails about the Iron Tides Kickstarter that is in its final week (four days left as I write this). More importantly, it seems that there […]

Check out the Vigilantes alpha demo and try this new crime-themed turn-based RPG game that is currently being developed by Timeslip Softworks!

SHODAN is returning! Check out the System Shock demo and Kickstarter to see how this remake of the classic sci-fi horror game is shaping up!

Defenders of Naxia Demo and Kickstarter

Check out the pre-alpha Defenders of Naxia demo that is currently available as part of the game’s Kickstarter campaign!

Case in point is the […]

InSomnia Kickstarter and Demo

Well here is some news that I meant to post about a couple of weeks ago but it completely slipped my mind. Better late than never I suppose. If you happen to recall, almost two years ago I mentioned the InSomnia Kickstarter and its technical demo. I actually liked the look of the game and […]

The Wild Eight Kickstarter and Pre-Alpha Demo

I have been keeping my eye on The Wild Eight Kickstarter campaign lately because it sounds like a very interesting survival game premise (which is impressive considering the glut of survival games that have appeared over the past few years). This week it got even more interesting with the release of a pre-alpha demo of […]

Push for Emor Alpha and Kickstarter

You really have to admire the lone wolves that just decide one day that they are going to try and make a video game.  Such is the case with Garry Hamer and his one man studio Lupus Solus.  Garry emailed DBB yesterday to tell us about the Push for Emor alpha that is freely available […]
