Please note that it is based on an older version of the game from March 2015 and runs on DirectX9. It may not represent the quality/performance of the current game version.
You can directly download it via http://www.beamng.com/techdemo.
Only Windows is supported - The 'Early Access' version requires Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or newer and runs on DirectX11
Handling the ZIP
When the download is over, you will find a file named BeamNG-Techdemo-v2.1.zip on your desktop (or download location). Double click to open it (Windows has a built-in tool to open ZIP files). Then drag BeamNG-Techdemo-v2 folder in another folder. That action will extract the techdemo files from the ZIP.
NOTE: These instructions are also valid for the Humble Bundle 'ZIP' version of the game. Only the folders name may be slightly different.
Launching the Techdemo
You should now have a BeamNG-Techdemo-v2 folder in the location where you dragged the folder to.
Open it and simply double-click BeamNG.drive.exe to launch the techdemo.
