Quoting MxM111, reply 6Demigod was not created by stardock, so no point to compare. Stardock was demigod's publisher.
Whether you like it or not, Stardock is attached to Demigod. They, Stardock, seem to know this, so I don't know why you don't.
And Stardock went out of their way to do stuff for that game and ending up fixing a lot of problems code wise- something a publisher shouldn't have to do. So yes they are attached, but they should not be negatively attached.
I personally don't equate Demigod as a bad mark on Stardock. If EA or Ubisoft or Activision had those problems with Demigod, they would have abandoned the game and then yanked any supportive services within a year. If i thought Demigod was all Stardock's fault, i wouldn't have even blinked at Elemental. However, for the general gaming population, they consider Demigod a failed launch and a failed game. You can make snide remarks all you want at the general gaming population, but Elemental is a chance for Stardock to show everyone what they can do and maybe push Demigod's release into a more distant memory.
None of which changes the fact that Elemental probably won't have a demo out before Civ has it's demo and maybe not before Civ has its actual release.
