Demigod is a PC role playing action strategy game. It is rated T and made by Stardock Games. It had a troubled release.
Demigod is a team-based action game with RTS and RPG elements. Players take control of a massive Demigod with the goal of annihilating their opponent’s position in a given arena while preventing the opponent’s Demigod from doing the same to them. Although the game supports superb one-on-one duels, the title will truly shine in team play either with other human-controlled Demigods or with ones controlled by a sophisticated computer AI. As the game progresses, the player's Demigod will acquire items, attributes and experience.
Launch:EditOn April 9, 2009, Gamestop began selling Demigod before its release date of the 14th. The game's servers were not yet launched thus not allowing preorder customers to have online play as originally intended. The issue was compounded by a cracked version of the game available for illegal download on torrent sites. In response, Stardock activated all pre-orders a day early from the planned release after returning to work on Monday April 13, 2009.
The game also had technical problems during online play. Players experienced connectivity issues until June when a patch was released.
