Demigod is a RTS from Gas powered games, who has made titles like Supreme Commander. So far i have only played 1 game in skirmish just to try it out and its seems like Supreme Commander in a different time slot, minus the building of structures and the large maps. You just control 1 demigod, kill the creeps and other Demigods, much like the Warcraft 3 mod, DOTA. I only have played 1 map as I mentioned  and maybe you can build structures, but I have not seen it yet, and therefore cannot report about it.

Graphics of demigod are pretty nice, the atmosphere is great, as the only map i played was on a giant tower top, with the fog of war being a bit different from normal RTS – clouds instead of the normal blackness. The demigods skills also look impressive and the game’s box art shows one of the demigods, which looks exactly like that in the game.

The game play is focused around demigods fighting each other, using skills and items that you can buy from a shop in your base, which is controlled not by you, but by a computer. You can however upgrade the creeps to deal more damage, your citadel to have more health and others similar to it. Your citadel is the structure that your enemy must destroy to win the game, the other buildings there also can be killed but in order to win the game you must kill the citadel.

Achievements can be obtained by performing certain feats in any game, such as killing 25 demigods in a single game or something as simple as winning the game.I’m not sure what this gives but they seem like an interesting touch.

Overall Demigod seems like a nice refined game, I am not sure how long it will last me but it can be safe to say that I will be playing this for some time.
