A screenshot of the Options

The option menu has new options the player can pick, enabling full-screen, changing the resolution, key configuration.

Key configuration works very differently than last time seen in Demo 2, instead of having to do it in a order, the player is given a lists of every move, and can navigate through it with pressing or . Pressing on one of the moves cause the game to wait on the next input of the player to over-ride it.

Cowboy Tasks

This demo includes the first version of Chef Tasks, however at this point in development they are called Cowboy Tasks. They work pretty much like how Chef Tasks do in the retail game. Cowboy Tasks are located in the Cowboy Task room inside the SAGE Building, listing off nine tasks the player can do. If the player completes all tasks, a Cowboy hat will be in the Task Room, wearable by the Player.


Level changes

This demo also has the exclusive feature of Pizza Coins and the Shotgun acting as an inventory item, where the player can buy 1 to 2 shotguns which are located in PizzaMarts inside of levels. Depending on how many Pizza Coins they have inside any given Pizzamart located in the demo's levels.

Lets Go To SAGE Versions

To promote the release of this demo, Early versions of this build were released on Patreon, all of them being a little different than the final demo. Such as some of the builds containing John Gutter, or Snick not being made as a playable character, instead with him telling The Player to complete all the Cowboy Tasks "To Prove They're a Real Cowboy".

Remember to read the wiki's trivia guidelines before adding trivia or making changes.
  • This demo is the only one that directly mention Peppino's fullname and Resturant.
  • The hub in the November build, and all future builds up until the World 1 hub was created, was the same as the hub for this demo, but it removes Snick and the Cowboy Task Room. While the sprites and some of the rooms used in the SAGE 2019 Demo still exist within the file located with the game, however, the tiling on the hub and Cowboy Task Room are a complete mess.
  • The Snick's Challenge S-Rank Cowboy Task can still be obtained in the final game if Debug Mode is being used.
  • This is the 1st demo to include the enemy death screams made by the Pizza Tower Discord members.
