I don't have the website all updated yet with a main landing page for Particle Fleet.  But, that doesn't stop me from putting the demo up.
You can get it from the demo download page here:
http://knucklecracker.com/common/demo.php

In a few hours I'll tweet, blog, facebook this link.

If you download, please post back to let us know if the download was successful and whether the game could run on your system (and what system you were on).

There will not be a Steam version of the demo. While Steam permits demos, they do not encourage it (at least as I understand the situation).

I've been telling all my friends to try it out!

Sounds like a corrupt download.   I'd grab it again and see if you get the same results.  There definitely shouldn't be a corrupt install.  I just tried it myself.
Which platform are you trying? (windows, linux, or osx).

What version are you trying to  download?  Can you re-try the download again? We can't recreate this.

Can you please come to the chat for a minute? We cannot recreate this request for a key...

Windows 10, x64 here. Installs and runs fine for me. No prompt for a key.

I've started up the demo and I've been following the tutorial. The first mission (Naivety) takes a while to beat, and when you move on to the next mission (Indelible), it's easy to forget about how to place the HQ, because it's a separate button from the other units.

It would help if more of the tutorial missions pointed at the HQ button with an arrow, so new players don't forget about it and get lost.
