About This Game

The all father has vanished, creating an opening in the pantheon. To fill the void, Demigods from across from the mortal world must wage war against one another in a bid to ascend to true godhood.

Set in a magical world where gods walk among mortals, Demigod blends action, strategy and role-playing elements into a thrilling new experience. Select the Demigod that will lead your minions into battle and unleash the dogs of war against your rivals. Your Demigod will do whatever it takes in order to ascend to true godhood.

Once in the Arena, each Demigod will be joined by support troops that fight to the death as you struggle to seize key control points and slowly turn the tide of war in your favor. And your Demigod will level up during the course of each battle, becoming even more powerful as you unlock new abilities and powers. It's a brutal conflict of Demigod versus Demigod, where the very ground beneath their feet will tremble and quake.

Demigod is a real-time, tactical strategy game that includes extensive role-playing elements. Choose from several Demigods, each poised for battle with their own unique capabilities and awe-inspiring powers. Vanquish other would-be gods as you gain levels, increase in power, unlock the power of mystic artifacts and slowly battle your way closer to joining the Pantheon.

Key features:

Revolutionary strategy/action game that combines tactical prowess with role-playing depth.
  • Your Demigod is the focus of your power in the arena. Each of the 8 included Demigods has unique powers and abilities.
  • Like a role-playing game, players can purchase equipment for their Demigod, add new powers to their Demigod as it gains experience, acquire artifacts that remain persistent between games. Each Demigod plays differently enough that it provides a diverse gaming experience.
  • Like a strategy game, players have strategic objectives in each arena that, when captured, provide resources that give access to better units and some Demigods have the ability to summon their own minions that they can individually control. There are gold mines that can be captured to give more resources, artifact shops that, if captured, make their resources available to your team.
Battle in a persistent online world in multiplayer or play single player either in a skirmish or in the virtual tournament.
  • The on-line pantheon allows players to "skirmish" against other players of similar skill or take part in the on-line Pantheon tournament where players choose the path of light or darkness and earn favor points to help their faction win the tournament. Players can also play on the LAN or play custom games with friends on the Internet.
  • Players earn favor points through victory with different awards given for different achievements during the game. These favor points can be used to purchase special items that exist from game to game.
Increase your Demigod's powers and abilities by leveling up during each battle.
  • In each game, your Demigod will start at level 1. As you kill enemy grunts and Demigods and capture flags, you gain experience which will cause your Demigod to gain experience levels. When a new experience level is gained, the player can add new skills and abilities to their Demigod to make him or her more powerful.
Wage massive, earth-shattering battles across a series of awe-inspiring Arenas.
  • Demigod makes use of the same awesome technology as Supreme Commander. However, it has been greatly enhanced with Gas Powered Games' new "mesh" technology that allows the game to have incredible visuals even on older video cards. The arenas in Demigod are not your typical "maps". Instead, they have each been crafted as a full blown 3D model unto itself in which players battle on the surface of them.
Seize key, strategic positions on the map and turn the tide against your enemy. Push deep into their base and destroy them once and for all.
  • Key resources in an arena are controlled by capturing the flag associated to that resource. When a player controls that resource, the entire team benefits. Controlling flags also generates war points which are added to your team's war score. When enough war points are collected, new upgrades in the team's Citadel become available for purchase.

Great game I enjoy the Uniqueness of each Demigod and I really wish people still play it online. I understand when the game was first realeased it was a complete mess and the netcode was messed up so no one could play online. Though I doubt it I really hope people will start to realize this game is alot of fun and will start to atleast get a small fan cult playing it

I´d give this game a 6 out of 10, but only because I played it on release back then.

I "recommend" this game only to "senior gamers" and if you get it at a SERIOUS discount.

This game is like an old "DOTA /LOL". But noone plays it anymore. I bought this 4pack for me and my friends for about 5€ and we had a few rounds of fun with it because it reminded us of the old times when we played it shortly after release.
The game still has its charme. The graphics scales nicely and the "heroes" are different enough. Its not as fast as lol/dota, so its fine for me.

Newer players - stay away from it, theres better out there. Old players - bring your friends.

For those seeing negative reviews, I for one do not like MOBA games very much if at all. But, for once I like a game that genre I normally stay away from most of the bugs have been fixed and the game worked day one aswell. Hope the devs come back to this game, cause it would be nice to see all the other charactors. 3.5/5

This game has almost no single player content, except skirmish mode against AI. It is like practice for multiplayer, but there is no online community and there hasn't been for years. Waste of money.

Love this game so much. Don't have anything good to say that hasn't already been said. Only downside is the lack of online community means you are limited to playing with friends and bots.

That said.... don't buy it unless it's on sale. =(

Now here is a MOBA game that never got the credit it deserved. Demigod popped on my radar a few years back but when it launched there were several server issues that hindered the initial launch. I still praise this game because when the dust settled and the mud slinging stopped it turned out to be a pretty little gem.

Demigod borrows interesting ideas from RTS games and implements that into MOBA gameplay. Capturing points, upgrading troops, towers and buildings are just a few of these mechanics and I welcome them as a different way of looking at how MOBA games could add layers of gameplay. Unfortunately there was nothing else added to the game with the exception of two extra demigods. Each demigod is unique and you still level up, gain gold, upgrade skills and buy items.

I've had some incredible matches on Demigod when the community remained active and it is something I always go back to with a few friends for bot matches. The AI matches can get incredibly hectic on the higher difficulties with Demigod offering a variety of maps. You can pick up Demigod now for $10 but I've seen it for around $5 on the sales.

Garbage cash grab, with a hit and miss registration. Good chance your one won't work day one like mine didn't.

Went to support to ask them to sort it out, they firstly seemed like they were trying to be helpful, then they tried to claim I didn't own the steam version, after sending them a screenshot of it in my library for proof the idiot in support somehow thought I had fixed the issue and closed my support ticket, I reopened it and questioned how they came to the conclusion that it was fixed. No response.

Avoid this company.

Pros:
> BEAUTIFUL models and graphics
> The music isn't annoying
> Many maps
> While few characters to play (10 ain't too bad), each has a large tree of abilities to develop
> I found it quite easy to pick up the games main concepts and strategies
> Pretty cheap to pick up

Cons:
> Dead community
> Too few items to purchase
> Kinda slow paced I guess
> No tutorial

If you got someone else to play this with then there isn't much to complain about regards to the whole community being dead. But it's good, basically a simpler Dota 2,

> without Russians

Best MOBA I've seen so far. It's got everything and actually requires you to think your next move and also empowers you as player to contribute to victory other than "win teamfight -> game over" base destroyed before enemy respawns back. Some players in your team can push lanes, others can capture towers, others can upgrade your own towers or units or citadel or even spawn multiple types of minions/archers/balistas/angels/giants etc. You could go capture some mines or that all round wanted +20% Experience Flag or the infamous +15% HP and EVEN upgrade yourself with multiple spawn-able units that you directly control yourself and that can be purchased from the shop. There's a lot of diversity in maps as there are many of them and unlike other mobas this one actually has mods! You know things that upgrade your UI, bot AI, Extra items etc.

I'm having a blast playing this game and would recommend it to anyone who likes MOBA games because it is unique in this genre.
