GameSpot has an exclusive interview with Mike Marr, Leader Designer on Demigod. The video is just over 5 minutes and gives a great insiders look at Demigod.
Am I weird in that I'd rather read an interview than watch some guy stare into the camera for 5 minutes?
Is it just me or isnt there a problem with each match not starting on equal ground? While i realize many people want to develop there avatars and stuff, thing like this can really kill a competitive game (which they claim to be) and while i havn't read so much else on the forum, it would seem from this interview that they favor farming over skill since farming = better starting point in next match, making it easier to farm and so on.
known2pwn, last we know is that there will be ranked games where all guys start even and then there will be this persistent world.
so guys, word is that Beta 2 is not coming this week, although Tri's sources are mysterious....
There will probably be standard ranked games where everyone starts equally. I think Frogboy (the Stardock CEO, IIRC) also said that they would like to make the persistant-world games fairer by doing stuff like 2v1 with 2 weak Demigods and 1 leveled-up one.
It's LOOKING like Demigod Beta 2 will come out next THURSDAY.
So what's the delay?
The new Internet multiplayer system: Portless multiplayer. It's a pretty huge thing that has had to be developed and tested internally as you can imagine. So there is no router port you have to open per se, it just takes care of everything. Sort of like Hamachi but no need for a VPN driver thing.
Out of curiosity, did you guys use the work IC did on Alloy to get this going, or completely seperate process?
Thank u frogboy this is what I want a reason. Also plzzzzzzzz try to get it out next thurs cause I want it for winter break.
And I'm running out of Vacation time!
Edit: Just wanted to finally point out that Frogboy's icon looks like the frog is holding two nipples to me.
Okay Teseer. We all see differnt things. cough cough guys I think he's gone off the deep end from aniticipation.
Is it off the deep end to stare at Impulse all day?
I nearly fell out of my chair when my Dreamscapes needed updating. So close...
Nvm hes already drowning not falling my bad. This is serious. Theirs one cure a kick ass beta 2. So gpg/stardock when ever u need inspiration just think Teseer is drowning so best get a move on.
Save me! (With Beta 2!)
beep beep beeeep beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. Owell its to late or is it. Will Teseer go crazy with anticipation findout next week thursday yeahhhhhhhhh.
Time off request is in the box again!
Boss: plz tell me this isn't for a game off
Teseer: no i want to take a week off for my family
Teseer: look whats that. Boss looks Teseer makes a run
Boss: tells doctors about Teseer
teseer goes to a mental hospital with no demigod.
If they gave me Demigod, I'd say take me away!
I did get a big "WHAT?!" when i mentioned it was for Demigod though.
