    1. A “demake” is basically an existing game being made with lesser features and sometimes with more technological restraints than the real version currently has, such as being made on a previous generation of hardware. Gang Garrison 2- a “demake” of Team Fortress 2- is a good example of this.

        1. Um, maybe?

          Let’s put it this way. Let’s say you try to make Super Mario Galaxy on the SNES. Sure, you could probably get the basic level structure pretty similar to the actual game, but you’d be limited to 2D gameplay. The Wii remote being used to collect star bits and activate Mario’s spin would not be possible either- those mechanics would need to be either reworked or removed entirely.

          THAT is a demake.

            Another example is Rayman Arena for the first Playstation… It’s incredible how Ubisoft made the game first on PS2, then Gamecube snd Xbox and then PS1.

  1. You guys who are pointing out the typo here and being straight up smart arses about it, when it’s an easy mistake to make and you have all done it guaranteed. You are the worse kind of people. Leave this guy alone and actually discuss the topic at hand, but instead you all only commented here to make fun. :/

  2. oops my bad I didn’t actually read the article before I wrote that :p it was actually called that. Not a typo. My bad. I retract my statement. You saw nothing…. lol. :p

    1. What I’m seeing is “you can get ALL included items together for this price, but if you want just one or two parts of it, you can just get those for less. Just be aware it will be cheaper to get the whole package than to purchase individually.”
