Gas Powered's Demigod pushed to Feb '09

Gas Powered Games' RTS-RPG hybrid PC project Demigod has been delayed, but here are somenew screens to wash the bitter taste of disappointment out of your mouth. It was originally due to release in late 2008, but it's now been pushed back to February '09.

This is to allow more time for a public beta which is scheduled to kick off in summer.In related news, Sins of a Solar Empire publisher Stardock has struck a deal with GPG to publish the game.

It's not entirely clear, but this could mean that Demigod will be released through Stardock's own new Steam-ish digital download service called Impulse in addition to traditional retail copies.

"Demigod will be released without any on-disc copy protection and has been budgeted to receive many months of free post-release feature updates," Stardock has said.

Demigod ispartly inspired by Warcraft III mod Defense of the Ancients. Gas Powered is promising the game will be a revolutionary team-based action title, and it supports one to ten players in massive fights in arenas.
