How would you feel if you had to spend the entirety of your future mining giant piles of garbage? Not good? Then you understand Rufus, the protagonist of Deponia. Daedalic Entertainment presents a new demo for Deponia, which is a "fast-paced comedy of errors and one of the most unusual love stories in gaming history," with a "unique game world in the style of Douglas Adams, Terry Prachett, and Matt Groenig." What a fancy way of saying the world is filled with trash. Rufus must help an alien girl by becoming her husband and hopefully escape the world destined to one of his limited social strata. Download the demo to get dirty with the plebians.

Scania: Truck Driving Simulator demo
"On this very night, ten years ago, along this very stretch of road in a dense fog just like this. I saw the worst accident I ever seen. There was this sound, like a garbage truck dropped off the Empire State Building... And when they pulled the driver's body from the twisted, burning wreck. It looked like this..." AAAAHHH! My name isn't Large Marge. Sorry about that. Take the wheel of a metal behemoth hauling who knows what in the Scania: Truck Driving Simulator demo.
