We received some very useful feedback from you and decided to remake the demo levels. After 3 months of hard works, we are excited to announce that Soul Dier demo 4.0 is released!

This is a massive update from the previous version 3.0. It includes heavily changes on the levels & pawns, and many other improvements (see below)!

Even if you have played the previous versions, no matter you like it or not, we highly recommend you to give it another try since the levels could feel very different to play.
