No clue about the demos. Doesn't feel like Reccetear at all though. Think of it as a strategy space trucking simulator, but with quasi-shmup combat in between. If you've played Freelancer or X, you'd understand. It's the same idea as those, just totally different gameplay and not quite as much variation (ships, guns, etc).
Note that it does have a story, and excellent writing. It's not just trading.
