and on the 8th day … the devil created corsets

Demigod Beta 1 Release

without comments. What is your opinion?

Demigod = DotA for the masses? Picture a PC RTS where the player controls a single, gigantic hero unit–an RTS/action-RPG hybrid. Each side has an automatically-spawning horde of minor units, with the Demigod’s task being to either direct them to a specific location, or impact the battle to the point that your side eventually overtakes the opposing enemy.

Demigod is being designed as an online multiplayer experience, and like DotA, the emphasis is on non-persistent, 40-minute matches. However, there will be some type of persistent component to the game, that Gas Powered Games is keeping a secret for now.

A release is sheduled for spring 2009 and the first beta about to begin now:

When can I download the beta?
Beta 1 will be available on Thursday, September 4th. The only ETA we have is sometime in the afternoon. Stardock’s offices are in the Eastern Time Zone of the US (GMT-5). So no posting “Hey, I’m in Australia and it’s the 5th already and I don’t have the beta!” The release goes by our clock .

When will my preorder be charged?
Preorders will be charged in waves on the 4th, in the order they were received. As your order is charged, you will be granted access to the Demigod Beta.

I preordered the game. Will I get the beta?
Anyone who has a preorder already (as of this writing) is 100% guaranteed a beta key. That said, chances are still excellent that if you preorder the game at any point in the next few days, you’ll probably get into the beta too.

I preordered the game. Why don’t I have a key?
You will get the key when your preorder is charged.

When is the cut-off for Beta 1 access?
We will accept preorders into Beta 1 for at least one week after beta starts. So if you haven’t preordered yet, you have some time still to order and get into the beta (assuming we don’t hit our tester limit first).

How do I download Demigod?
Demigod will only be available via Impulse. (
