    How the FUCK do you attack zombies in the demo? I've Googled and apparently I'm the only idiot who doesn't know how.

    Hold down control, and click your mouse in the direction of what you want to hit.

    Adding to Jordan's explanation, and perhaps stating the obvious, but you need to have a weapon in the main slot at the time.

    Also, shotguns require ammo.

    Shotguns are so overpowered. In the course of an adventure I had a hundred bullets and was getting bored of living so lured tons of zombies to my hideyhole and then went nuts and butchered hundreds of them. I would have lived as well since I killed them all and had to lure another wave to attack me, but then I ran into a shed and then ran out of ammo. Great fun.

    I did have exactly the same problem not being able to attack, and holding down CTRL on my MacBook didn't work for me, I have to hold Z instead. I don't know if it's a bug, or the fact that I was on a laptop or Mac, but yeah, try that.

    I agree about the shotguns; shotgun ammo, and even shotguns themselves, are far too plentiful atm. At least they were in the last build I played.

    Well, it IS a pre alpha tech demo.

    I still can't wait to keep playing this game, I'm getting really impatient for the next update but... it will get here when it gets here, and there ain't nothin I can do about it.

    I guess Stardock CEO's comment of "It's a tried and true method to release the game in unfinished state, then patch it after people buy the game" is pretty legit after all. I guess the only thing he failed to do was to just put "alpha" on Elemental label.
