@GamesMaster thx, i had no idea demo was made shorter.
@Kalpana @Carawen Well regarding word count - its a little misleading really.
IMO it would be better if instead of TOTAL word count, we would know words per playtrough(im speaking about all COG titles). Because that can vary from title to title, especially when game is really non-linear.
Choice of Rebels felt really short for me - even though its more than 600k words long. PonPara length was really satisfying, or should i say it was longest COG title i played with its 430k words. But this still doesnt tell much when whole LOTR trillogy is 450k words and i dont think that any title in COG library takes half as long to read as LOTR.
So yeah, word count is crazy misleading.
And judging from demo TSS feels really non-linear (even too much to be honest, i would prefer to have more time to get to know RO in more linear fashion before commiting lol) so thats why i was asking.
Still, if demo is not 1/3 of full package then it definetly wont be shorter than average COG title, thanks cant wait for release
Also, since im typing anyway - i dont see an issue with MC being somehow disabled in first volume when it comes to important plot choices (because thats what i understood was discussed higher).
When you get transported to other world without some crazy powers, you cant really power your way through* lol
It also makes writing sequels harder, if not impossible - it would basically force author to write alternative book for every important branch.
*cant really imagine MC of wayhaven soloing murphy for example lol
