Game Atelier and FDG Entertainment have released the PC demo for Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. As the developers noted, in the demo you’ll be playing the human form of Jin, you will experience the very beginning of the game and learn your first spell.
In this demo, you will be able to explore land and underwater with many hidden coins and even an extra heart. Furthermore, the full version will import the demo savegame so you can continue your adventure when it’s out.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
