Default So what is this new game Demigod?

I just got an email from Stardock about it. Says it will be released in about a month. It looks kind of cool, but I can't figure out from the website what the heck type of game it is.

Sounds like a Warcraft 3 clone, just from looking at the web site.

It's a DoTA clone.

You people are so old.

From the website

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.
Hmmm... this reminds me of SOMETHING, but I can't quite recall what...

I believe it's clone of "Defense of the Ancients", a mod from Warcraft 3.

Ahh, thanks. Never mind then. I can't play RTS anymore. I'm too old and senile.

The screenshoots do look impressive, but it seems pretty shallow to me.

If it would turn out to have a great new combat system and gui I think you could skip over the fluff and have a blast in multiplayer. But I guess it´s more likely to be another repetitive rts.

I looked at the so called demigods and found Kerrigan from Starcraft in string panties, the colossus from the Shadow of the Colossus, a german ubermensch with a colossal "snipercrossbow", a hydralisk from Starcraft, a chaos soldier from Warhammer... the list goes on and on.

Not saying it is bad in any way... the creators probably used their creativeness elsewhere.

*Takes another look*

Or perhaps not.
