In a fairly bizarre move, Focus Interactive are offering the first chapter of Final Exam for free… sort of. Rather than just releasing a demo, you need a special Steam Early Access key generated on their website.
There’s no mention on how limited these keys might be. That said, I’d assume there is some sort of limit, so – if you fancy bashing your way through a horde of monsters either solo or in co-op for up to four players – you might want to get in on this quickly.
Final Exam was formerly a game based on the ObsCure survival horror franchise, but the developers renamed it when they realised that if they called the game ObsCure, people might actually expect a game like ObsCure. Being that its predecessor was a relatively slow-paced survival horror title about trying to stop a mysterious evil infesting your high school and abducting students, and this is a cartoony side-on brawler, you can see why they might have decided to do this.
There’s a trailer below in case you need to know a bit more. Otherwise, just head on over to the official website to pick up your key.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
