Do Some Draws - Crayon Physics Beta Demo

The cuddly joyful happy place that is Crayon Physics Deluxe now has its beta demo available for anyone who's pre-ordered. Which you really should have. You can do so here. This early behind-closed-doors demo from Kloonigames' Petri Purho contains the first 18 levels of the game, along with access to a limited version of the level creation tools, letting you set your own challenges. It's the first chance for people to get their hands on the Deluxe version of things, and see quite how many leaps and bounds forward this is since the original Crayon Physics.

There's some interesting changes since I played the game a year ago, and all of them good. It's more slick, simpler to get the ball rolling, and on a much bigger scale. There's new music, and a lovely way of laying out the levels. But the level design tool most caught my attention here. It's so incredibly simple to use (albeit in a restricted form this time). Once you've created your challenge, they upload in-game, and appear on the website, but as yet you can't play other people's levels. That's all for later in the beta. You'll need to have pre-ordered to have an account so you can do any of this. Which I strongly recommend you do. It's looking really rather fantastic.

Here's the tablet video again, because it's just so fun:
