Chris Taylor, Gas Powered Games founder and architect of Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, along with Brad Wardell, CEO of up-and-coming publisher Stardock of Sins of a Solar Empire fame, recently gave an interview with Gamespot regarding the pending RTS title Demigod. A more-personal RTS, Demigod promises to breathe life into a tried and true formula, as I’ve mentioned before.
Reading more about Demigod, it really seems like an action-adventure meets RTS, or, more specifically, Supreme Commander meets Dungeon Siege, two Gas Powered alumni. The arena-style battles, with capturable power-ups and customizable legions, seems like an exciting take on Defense of the Ancients-style play.
A release date for Demigod is now available; it will release in February, 2009.
