Can't find any threads about this game, so I'll start one up.
Anybody playing with the Cities XL demo? (EU version, runnable in the US, available here. Requires a website registration to run, and the demo account lasts for seven days. A US demo is to be out on September 8th, it sounds like, and it's possible it might have some fixes over the EU one.) It's a SimCity-alike, from Monte Cristo (who also made City Life).
(details in second post to avoid cluttering the header too much).
