Latest PC title by Gas Powered Games, Demigod, has leaked on the internet a day before the game’s street date. Responsible for the leak are p2p group DEViSE who are better known for releasing pirated movies on p2p networks. Demigod is a little unusual game and quite honestly I haven’t seen anything like it so far. It’s a hybrid of action, real time strategy and role playing genres. According to developers Demigod has a lot in common with DOTA (Defence of the Ancients), the popular multiplayer map for Warcraft 3.
As we mentioned earlier it was group DEViSE who leaked Demigod on p2p networks. The following information is quoted from their NFO:
We've got this from one of our guys. The cracker is unknown. We did the rest of the work but the kuddos goes to the original cracker! btw: It's here 2 days earlier...
It’s actually a little strange to find DEViSE giving credit to a ‘cracker’ because when i ran protectionID on Demigod exe the game didn’t seem to have any sort of anti piracy protection at all. Anyways the DEViSE release seems to be working find expect for several people running into the following issue:
- The game does not start up and does nothing when clicked on the exe (nothing happens when you run the game). I’ve seen several people running on Windows XP report this problem on various gaming forms. I have also seen comments by those who got the game to run perfectly on both Vista and XP operating systems. Might have something to do with hardware configuration?
