Steam demo mess-up

The demo shows up as downloading.

I didn't take a screenshot earlier; it appeared this afternoon next to the installed AVWW. When i hit "delete local content" on the demo, it disappeared.
As i tried to start AVWW again (it showed up white, like it was installed), it instead started downloading the game again, while also re-adding the demo.
"-downloading" stays on, but doesnt actually download anything.

Simply starting the game works without issue.

Thanks for this.

I saw a couple reports about this on the Steam forums too. I sent a message up the line, hopefully Valve can get this fixed quick.

No need to apologize, we'd much rather have too many reports of a problem than none! :)

And yeah, there wasn't one on release, Valve added it yesterday. :)

Ah, I was about to post about this, but I see it's a known issue.

I couldnt find any  AVWW demo at all on Steam.  I'm in the US.  Looked all over the store page via the website and from within the steam client.

Hmmm, I'm not sure why you can't find it, but, if you want to play the demo, you can always grab it from here: http://www.arcengames.com/w/index.php/avww-downloads .

Yep, there is no demo on the store page on Steam. It get's added to the library when you buy the game actually :D. And then sits there.

Don't know why, but the not-yet-installed demo disappeared for me today.
