There is now a demo of Half Past Yellows 'Spectacle'.

Update: Just played the demo! Such a brilliant puzzle game. Really cool and creative! Proud of my former co-workers! :D
It's not exactly Portal. but something in a alternative vein of first person puzzlers.
Demo completion time 20m3s. So it's a rather quick demo to run though.

Nordic Game is a great event mind you and should not considered the normal.
I hope this will end with the rooting out of a few bad apples.

Denmark gets a game institute!
'Nimbi GameLab – Danmarks Institut for Spiludvikling'

Haha I like the name! ;) I wonder if they will 'borrow' my also 'borrowed' Nimbi logo from the 1963 game Nimbi by Piet Hein.

EUROPAS FØRSTE SPILINSTITUT ER I LUFTEN
Nimbi GameLab – Danmarks Institut for Spiludvikling. Det er navnet på Danmarks nye spilinstitut, som henviser til et af de første danske digitale spil fra 1963. Instituttet er det første af sin slags i Europa og er sat i verden for at støtte den danske spilbranche.

And now the Glyde The Dragon from Valefor Games Ltd. is ready with a demo AND a Kickstarter! :)

Also it's not a full 100% DK project. But at least one devs, I know, from the team is DK based!
Technically an English project with an international team.

Best of luck with the Kickstarter to Sonny and the team! :D

So far the Kickstarter is looking very promising!
