The demo was released on November 11th 2013 to all pre-order supporters, and had quickly gone viral, raising the pre-order sales enormously. It contains limited version of the playground. This would be later released for free after Christmas 2013.
Following the success of the demo, the 2.0 version was released on the December 5th 2013 to all pre-order supporters, and later to all people who purchased the game on Steam. It's a full version of the playground, including more objects and gives player the ability to shoot objects.
