"Demigod was the first commercial MOBA. It's very easy to pick up and play and works great for LAN parties."

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.

I enjoy the game a lot. I will just play a match, usually on a big map and it's an enjoyable few hours. The only negative for me is that they haven't added anything new, there should be a DLC with new maps and Demigods but there isn't and probably never will be. Still if you get it on sale it's really cheap and good to take your mind off some 50 hour game for a bit.

Good moba game here. Not as difficult to pick up as Dota. The multiplayer suffers sometimes extreme lag due to coding issues. But a solid game either way.

A tragic MOBA that showed promise but flopped. Still really fun to play though, just lacks a wide selection of heros :/

I tried LOL at one point and I'm in the Heroes of the Storm Alpha but I just wasn't very good or had any idea what I was doing with these MOBA style games. Then my friend introduced me to this one and it was awesome. After the first battle I had a great grasp on what I was doing and pretty much stomped face for our remaining games. The graphics are nice, the characters are diverse and each one plays differently.
My favorite thing are the levels.
They are all very different. Instead of the same map with the same things just moved around in different spots, each arena is a new setting, the layout is different along with the placement of the various buildings, flags, and portals, and the ambient surroundings are somethign as well. It's a nice change. It forces you to rethink your path, strategy somewhat for each arena you play on.
If you like League and Dota and other MOBA games, definitely get this one... and then play it with me!

Demigod is one of those games which surprised the hell out of me in many ways. From the overall presentation, the graphics and audio and the very fun and addictive gameplay, Demigod is one of the best mixed genre games and a shining example of how great game developers can continue to evolve old ideas into bigger and better games. For players looking for some challenging strategy with an RPG skill system that allows the player to tailor the game to their play style, will find a fun and affordable game with Demigod.Demigod is one of those games which are focused for a restricted community. The game is strategy, but it’s also a role-playing and an action game, and every genre it tries its well executed, offering a deep and engaging on-line gameplay. Not traditional at all, and surprisingly intense.Just make sure you understand what kind of game you are buying and you won't be disappointed.

Short version: If you have ANY desire to play a MOBA that was ahead of its time. Get this.


Long-ish textwally version: This game was the BEST way back in the day when there was a somewhat lively community, it's died down quite a lot since, but still decent. The gameplay was, and to me, still is, slightly is ahead of the MOBA curve in it's own way, such as being able to upgrade your main citadel to buff your creep waves and the like. Now due to it's age, theres many a bug, my personal favorite being random times where your character won't bloody move when told, but that's pretty minor and rare.
Another thing I love is the fact that, while certain God's are more suited to certain roles, there is no "Best" build for every situation for a given character. Speaking of God's, quite a bit of diversity, you've got anywhere from the fragile archer angel, Regulus, to the literal walking castle Rook. The gods are split into two types: Assassins and General's, Assassins just worry about themselves, whereas General are capable of summoning various creatures, either through abilities or items.
While there are admittedly only 10 gods, and all there ever will be as far as we can tell, well, outside of mods of course, but they all have a huge amount of thought and love put into their designs and back story.
There are about 8 maps, and 4 modes, so it may repeat a bit... In hindsight I realize this was just me gushing over the game, but still, if that doesn't make you interested, dunno what will, 9.5/10

I really wish Demigod was a free to play game with a better server and community, it's a fun MOBA except you will probably wait 1-2 hours before you can start a game that is 3v3. The community just isn't there because the servers are so weak, but the game is very fun.

One of the most underrated MOBA, this game is better than any LoL or DotA ripoff. It was actually released before those two and really pushed the MOBA genre. It's sad that it didn't get as many attention as it shoudlve had, leading to the an early abandonment of the game by the devs. I got to say though that even with only 10 heroes, this game feel fresh and very diversed. Needless to say that this is the best looking MOBA, even after all those years.

I'd recommend this game to anyone who want to take a little break from the big two (LoL and DotA2). It's worth the money!

For those gamers who don't want to play PVP for what ever the reasons, but likes this type of game with Co-op VS AI... Demigod is the game for you. I wish stardock would make more maps, but for a few bucks, this game is worth thanks to the community creating such great mod packs like the enhanched AI and UI.

Amazing game, however it hasn't had updates in a while and a few friends have noticed memory leak issues on a couple different machine setups.

Unfortunately until purchased there is no way for certain to know if you'll have this issue.

Great Moba! You get to pick about8 to 10 charcters each with their own play styles. Best thing is that you can play alone or with friends or others online...if there is anyone online to play with. Highly recommended .
