Rainbow Moon Gets Demo, Soundtrack DRM Explained And Giveaway!
This week, the throwback RPG Rainbow Moon launched a post-release demo on Playstation Network. The demo allows interested parties to try a 90 minute trial run of the game and restart it as often as they choose. While that only gives you a beginning appreciation for the dozens upon dozens of hours of content available, it should present a good introduction to the novel fighting mechanics in the game. More so, after unlocking the full game, players can continue where they left off in the demo.
Rainbow Moon has had a successful start so far. During its release period in July, it was the second highest selling game on Playstation Network. To continue on the wave of that prosperity, company eastasiasoft released a digital soundtrack of the catchy tunes in the roleplaying game. There is also a hardcopy version available on the company website.
The digital album contains 32 tracks from the game and is said to be “100% DRM free.” Seeing as how Sony requires you to log into their network to download, we were skeptical of this branding. Therefore we contacted eastasiasoft with the question how this could possibly work. Company rep Catherine Ng stated:
“The PSN soundtrack release is an installer, which is indeed not DRM free. (as required by Sony)
However once you start the installer, it will copy the soundtrack files to your PS3’s music folder. You can then copy these music files back to your computer or any other device through a USB flashdrive or any other media supported by the PS3.”
So, let’s say the music 90% DRM free. The digital soundtrack is priced at $4.99/3.99. It also comes in a newly packaged premium bundle, which contains both the game and the sounds, along with a starter pack, for a discounted price.
We received several codes for the game and the soundtrack to distribute to our loyal readers.
Here’s how to win:
Method 2: Leave a heartfelt comment below why you’d like the game or soundtrack. We uphold the right to dismiss superfluous messages such as “Game now pl0x.” Please leave a valid email address, unless you’d like to wave away your chances to win.
