  • Excerpt: Every now and then a developer takes the risk to break the mold of tried and true designs and ventures off into the unknown. Sometimes these experiments succeed and catch on, other times they go unnoticed and a unique creation gets forgotten. One such company that pushes beyond the confines of typical design is Gas Powered Games, makers of the wonderful Supreme Commander and Dungeon Siege series.

  • Summary: While its simplicity might put off hardcore RTS fans Demigod still has a lot to offer.
  • Pros: Frantic combat; eight very different demigods to choose from; each gameplay mode brings different goals; large online battles are a thrill; interesting approach to real-time strategy games.
  • Cons: Lag and online connections are pretty bad; no single-player campaign; fairly steep learning curve; general demigods are frustrating to use; somewhat shallow; many minor glitches / bugs.

  • Summary: Amidst a slew of initial connectivity problems, an inordinate number of pirated copies, and a broken street date, Gas Powered Games has finally released Demigod , their take on the immensely popular DotA (Defense of the Ancients) . For those not in the loop DotA is to Warcraft 3 as Counter Strike was to Half Life , which is essentially a highly popular mod made using the built-in map editor.

  • Excerpt: Though Demigod is an exceptional offering with unique strengths, one that does a fantastic job of straddling the genre fence and moving gaming forward, the multi-player headaches beg the question: is it ultimately worth buying?

  • Excerpt: Sure it's fun to play god, but what happens when a bunch of other gods are out to get you? Gas Powered Games lets you find out for yourself in Demigod, a hybrid of role-playing and strategy. Some might complain that there's not much of a story to speak of, but with this type of game it's not really needed. Demigod is hard to pin down. It clearly draws its inspiration from Defense of the Ancients, a popular mod for WarCraft III, but it's definitely not a rip-off.

  • Excerpt: Name: Demigod Genre: RTS, Action, RPG Platform: PC Over the past few years, real-time strategy games have changed. For some time, developers refused to innovate, but slowly they've adapted, taking more creative risks. Oftentimes, these changes are spurred by the genre's active community and the tradition of shipping RTS with level creators.
