Nice. Going to give this game a try and see if I like it.

After reading the whole Q&A I think it sound awesome. Never played Catan before but I am really excited to test it :)

Well since there is no demo, I won't buy this at all, was interested to buy it, but don't want to waste 10$ and have no clue if I like it or not.

Well I have the demo. Downloaded it Wednesday and played it couple times. Maybe there is some problems with marketplace then?

We discovered a technical issue with the trial version of the game and had to remove it from the service. The full version of Catan is still available. The team is working onto fix the issue in the trial version and have it back up as soon as possible, but I don't currently have an ETA. Thanks for your patience.
Sorry didn't know it was unavailable now.

    Loakum @GriftGFX: trends. 2D fighters was all the rage, then 3D fighters took over, now it switched back to 2D fighters. It'll switch again. (57 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (6 Hours ago)
