Ah, I see it's a .sit file not a zip or tar file. (g-d-p can unpack tar,
umod and most zip files more intelligently because it can iterate over
them from Python code, rather than having to use an external executable;
and it can only unpack e.g. unshield *less* intelligently, extracting
entire groups or the entire archive. unar is in between.)

If you use:

        format: unar
        unpack: ['Heroes III Demo']


        format: unar
        unpack: ['*']

then that should work.
