Wierd, yeah still isn't working for me. Chrome and Firefox give that error above, and IE simply sits there as if it is loading, but does nothing at all, even after a few minutes of waiting.
Perhaps you could create a mirror so for those who it doesn't work for have an option for this version? I really want to try it out, this game is lots of fun.
EDIT: Hm... the other links (previous version) work fine, it is just the new one.
EDIT2: Aaand, roughly 4:30 hours later it works! Yay. Though I still think I mirror would be good. When I am done I will leave my opinion on the update.
EDIT3: Well.. somewhat disappointing... What happened to all the voices? The players voice is gone, both while playing and in the cut-scenes. That both got rid of the relational feel (like you were following an actual person instead of just a player-controlled entity) and completely removed the story that captured me in the other demo. (also it helped with figuring out to do, like getting the card key, not that you can really get lost) Also, the alert voice when things start blowing is gone. Bummer... I hope you plan on re-adding those.
Ok for the rest of it, glad we finally got to hear from doctor Ean, so what WAS the story, continues. I loved the water, and water-involving area, no complaints on the scenery. (Heh, I was impressed that the bushes even moved when you touched them) I liked the cutscenes, especially the one with the flaming plane, the slow motion was cool.
Did you improve the AI? They seemed like they moved about a bit more. The updated graphics were very nice, and I noticed the player movement was a little easier. (Like sliding without needing to run for example, unless I just missed it last demo)
"Helper" is more of a jerk now, instead of helpful.
Though with the removal of most of the tutorial, he seems rather unnecessary. I personally preferred the old intro with helper, but that is just me. (Also, his old voice sounded more robotic than the current) I think a LITTLE more explanation of controls are needed, as it took a while to figure out how to change weapons, and I wouldn't of had a clue about the health buttons on the wall if I didn't already know. Speaking of which, it was a good idea to slow the guns firing rate down, and I loved the new gun as well as the cleaner HUD.
Had no big problems with the new camera, it was easier to get spun around because of the slight 'wobbly' feel, but no biggie. Oh yeah, spider things, made me jump, wasn't expecting them in that first hallway.
Anyway, I am loving the gameplay update as well as the graphical update, though I am really missing the voices as that is truly what made the game so involving. Not to say it isn't interesting without them, the gameplay is fun enough, but you sort of butchered the intrigue and involvement with the story itself when you removed them.
Well those are my two cents. Nice work on the engine, smooth as butter and I am still throughly impressed with this game.

NEWS FLASH! You can't get to heaven by your works. No chance. Hopeless. Give up now. No amount of works will get you anywhere, in fact all your efforts have been botched years ago because you already missed perfection the first time you lied, stole, or performed any of those other lovelies.
That said, do you want to go to heaven? Not the hellish picture given by cartoons. You know, the nightmarish one where you are renting a cloud and harp? I mean, holy crap, where did that come from? I am talking about a bonafide city, people, designed by God no less. Heck, read John's Revelation 21 if you want details. Getting to heaven is extremely simple, actually, the how and why is spelled out in Paul's letter to the Romans, summarized in Romans 10:9,10. God lived a perfect life and died in your place, covering every one of your mistakes and failures past and future. All you have to do is believe that He did what he said He did and accept the gift. Bam, you're saved. Done deal. Complicated, no? Questions? PM me.
