Version 1.1.52, French Translation

Another day, another patch!

Changelog:

- Polished up Italian Translation
- Added complete French Translation (marked as BETA for now)
- Fixed various glitches in UI related to translations

Note:

This is for Mac and Windows only. We have supported Linux for a long time, but sadly the only distribution DQ doesn't run well on is SteamOS, so even though the game will run on Ubuntu, etc, Steam has removed our "Supports Linux" store status as part of a new policy.

Therefore, we've decided to halt maintenance patches for the Linux version of Defender's Quest for now, and put those efforts towards DQHD instead. DQHD will have FULL Linux support -- native, c++ based, and without relying on adobe-AIR or clumsy installers. It will support SteamOS, big picture, and steam controller integration.

When the full version of DQHD releases, we will do one final round of maintenance patches for all platforms (including Linux), but then we'll be done with the old version of the game forever. And yes, you'll be able to switch between the legacy version of DQ (what you're playing now), and DQHD, on any store you own the game on, including Steam.

----------------

Also, in case you missed it, the upcoming free HD upgrade of Defender's Quest has a public demo you can play RIGHT NOW:

Defender's Quest HD Public Demo now available

Hey everybody!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=578247612

So, I know you've been waiting patiently for Defender's Quest HD. Although we're not releasing the full version today, we are releasing a demo version available for you to try, right now! It encompasses the same amount of content as the original demo.

It's not perfect, and it probably has some bugs, but we figure it's better to get it out there in front of a small audience now, collect feedback, and fix as many things as we can rather than continue to noodle on it in private and suffer from tunnel vision.

You can find builds for Windows, Mac, and Linux here:

Defender's Quest HD Demo: Initial Public Test

Do note that the graphics are not in a 100% final state, and that controller support still needs a decent amount of work. Eventually we plan on integrating the Steam controller, too. But this should give you a pretty good feel for what the new engine is capable of.

Keep in mind that this is also literally the Defender's Quest II engine, it's just running the game content from Defender's Quest I. So this also represents a huge milestone towards the completion of Defender's Quest II, as well.

Please let us know if you have any trouble with the builds, there's instructions in the linked blog post for posting feedback and bug reports.

------------

In semi related news, I wrote this other blog post the other day some of you might find interesting, it includes details about the HD remake process for DQHD:

À propos de ce jeu

Defender's Quest est un hybride de tower defense et de jeu de rôle (imaginez un croisement entre Final Fantasy Tactics et un jeu de tower defense). Il se concentre sur trois points essentiels : la profondeur tactique, la richesse de la personnalisation et la qualité de l'histoire. Il ne comporte pas de combats aléatoires, pas d'ados emo avec des coupes de hérisson, pas de mécanismes laborieux destinés à prolonger artificiellement la durée de vie du jeu et pas d'affrontement fastidieux à répétition.

Le système de combat s'inspire des jeux de tower defense, mais utilise des personnages uniques à la place des tours. Chaque personnage gagne de l'expérience, apprend de nouvelles compétences et possède son propre équipement, ce qui vous permet de personnaliser votre style de jeu et votre stratégie. La structure globale du jeu est similaire à celle d'un jeu de rôle tactique, mais avec un système de combat en temps réel. La vitesse de jeu est ajustable et des ordres peuvent être donnés pendant que le jeu est en pause.

Defender's Quest propose également une histoire intense menée par des personnages hauts en couleur. Le scénario riche en péripéties donne du rythme au déroulement de l'action, tout en restant cohérent avec les phases de jeu. Enfin, le jeu offre des tonnes d'options et de réglages d'accessibilité, afin de proposer l'expérience la plus agréable possible !

REMARQUE - Le jeu est actuellement bloqué à 30 IPS. Trois facteurs compensent néanmoins
ceci :

Loving this game! The story so far is really fun with all the crazy characters and keeps it nice and light :) The challenges are fun to do and rewardyou with great items and whatnots. There is a big RPG element, which is probably the only reason I bought the game on the first place. If you are a hardcore tower defence lover i do not think that you would enjoy this as much, but for the more casual players the game rocks.
10/10 Looking forward to the second part :)

For such a seemingly simple game it has a respectable level of depth. The story is engaging, amusing and adds enough interest to keep you pushing on a little more. The standard levels are of good length and for fans of a tower defense style genre, Defender's Quest will more than satisfy. The pace is fantastic the whole way through with level and gear development coming just as you need. Easy to digest and quick to learn and if you REALLY want to master it, there's room to do that too. A hearty thumbs up from me.

This is hands down the best tower defense game I have ever played, it has a really good and involving story , the way your "towers" play a part of the story and even level up adds a nice flavor of uniqueness into the game, would recommend to every tower defense fan 4/5!!!

I've thoroughly enjoyed Defender's Quest, it's just a Tower Defence game, but with an awesome story, great characters and challenging gameplay, what's more there is enough hidden away to keep you coming back for more, going for the 100%, collecting weapons and armour, the challenge modes and if you truly hate yourself and enjoy cryptic crosswords the Secret Book.

What's more, there is a New Game+ that not only increases the challenge but adds new levels, new lore etc. All in all a well thought out game to pass the time, and will have you laughing out loud at the story, and cursing as you go for the perfects.

J'ai découvert la démo de ce jeu de défense de tour sur un site de jeux flash et j'ai adoré! Autant la musique que le scénario et nos héros. Par contre, je trouve que les graphiques auraient pu être plus soignés. Pas lors des combat, là ils sont parfaits, mais pendant les scènes de dialogues. En plus, avec tout les modes de la communauté, cela rajoute des heures de jeu. Recommandé.

I don't like tower defense games, but this one is pretty neat. Why? Because it incorporates many RPG elements I do like. Take all the normal tower defense aspects and make them level up with skill selections and you have Defender's Quest. The story is vaguely interesting and the art style minimalistic, but nice/different.

However, I only recommend the game for those who like tower defense games, as the game resorts to repeating content with higher difficulties as far as extending your skills and leveling your party rather than something random or a large amount of content. There are also several secrets abound and some great humor in the dialogue if you care to read it!

I've really enjoyed this game! Love the story and how it adds more in New Game+. I've been playing with the core characters but there are many characters that you can recruit to wreak the screen! Your ability to set experience gain percentage allows a good level of versatility and customization. The ability to fast forward gameplay and skip story allows the player to choose what rate they want to play the game at. Great job with this quality game!

I do recommend this game if you enjoy games of the tower defense or puzzle genre. I highly recommend you stay away from this game if you have never enjoyed the TD genre. This is a wonderful game. The game has a (what I refer to) pick your own challenge setting which basically consists of setting your own EXP and Scrap(Money) multiplier/%. It can be set up to 300% which is by far easy mode. The second playthrough is more fun than the first and it has great replayability in my opinion. Overall would give the game an 8/10 and I am happily looking forward to the second game.

The first hour or so I couldn't decide if i liked it or not and was wodering why it had such a high positive review. But now I've put in 11 hours and can safely say it's deserving of praise. I have always loved TD's and have been playing them since way back in the WC3 BNET days. In that regards it doesn't play any different than any other TD. However, the leveling up aspect is fun. Adds a grinding element which forces you to play several levels multiple times. Which gives you the opportunity to try out new strats to keep things fresh. Has plenty of replay value and for the first time in a while i feel the desire to grind out the achievements. The story line is alright: has several funny moments but isn't amazing. I do like the concept of a story TD and this pulls it off well. It's pretty awesome, I won't lie, and I personally believe it to be worth full price. 10/10

At its core, Defender's Quest is a tower defense game in which your towers aren't just expendable resources that don't change from level to level. In Defender's Quest, your towers are customizable heroes, with skill trees and a wide variety of abilities. The story, art style, and music are all rather presentable, and even charming at times, and the core mechanic of leveling up your troops and acquiring new gear has tremendous Pavlovian allure. It's a fairly expensive game for its relative simplicity, but it nonetheless hugely entertaining. At full price or on sale, I can't help but recommend Defender's Quest.

By far my favorite tower defense type game. Between the original flash based release on Kongregate, the standalone version after I purchased it, and the Steam version that was added later I'd guess I have 3x the time listed playing this.

What has impressed me as much as the game itself are the continuous updates the game has received WELL after the launch of the game. New Game+, more quests and backstory scenes, art overhauls, etc.

If you like tower defense games I would definitely urge you to give Defender's Quest a try!

Like many others have said, let me start this by saying I don't like tower defense games. At all. Those have never held my interest for too long. Despite this, I bought this game after Rock Paper Shotgun showcased it many, many years ago.

If I had to choose my favorite indie game, it would be Defender's Quest for sure. Nothing else comes even close. The developers have done a great job at supporting the game throughout the years, first by releasing a Gold version (that is the current Steam version) as well as planning to release the HD version of the game that comes for free for all owners of the game on Steam. Defender's Quest 2 is also in the works as of writing of this review.

If you like tower defenses, get this game. If you like witty dialogue, get this game. This game shows what an indie game can be when it's done right. I can't really find any real flaws out of it.

While this is a decent little game, I think it fails to really deliver on its core promises. It's worth some money and time, but I wouldn't recommend paying full price for it.

The game bills itself as primarily a tower defense game. Tower defense games generally require you to come up with a strategy to defeat the enemies given a particular map and set of resources. Defender's Quest maps are much simpler, and to a large extent don't require much strategy. That's where the "RPG" part comes in. There's not really any role-playing going on, but your characters get stronger and you can buy better weapons and armor for them. The maps don't rely so much on strategy as on having characters that are high enough level and have good enough equipment. And that generally means grinding for XP. So when it comes to the advanced and extreme levels, it's not that the levels are possible but you have to have a better strategy. The levels are simply impossible to start with, and the only way you can beat them is by leveling up your characters.

In short, it's not a good tower defense game (because the challenges rely primarily on having high-level characters not strategy), and it's not a good RPG (because there's no real role-playing, just "numbers going up" as you and the enemy gain levels and equipment). So I think it rather fails the "tactical depth" promise.

The second promise is customization, and it does have options to rebind all the keys and change the XP scaling, character names and colors, etc., but I don't think it's a big deal. The developer also put thought into how he could accomodate people with certain disabilities (like epilepsy), which is nice.

The third is story, and I suppose that's where this game does best. The story isn't great, but it does give a reason to keep playing and it is fairly humorous in some parts.

Technically, the game is well-made, even if it appears dated. I can't recall any bugs in the game, and it has been very stable. The game runs at 800x600 resolution, which is fine for me. The sound effects and music are well-done, but lack variety, which is okay for me.

I just wish the game rewarded thinking more than it rewards grinding. It's worth a try if you can get it on sale.

Surprisingly good for what is essentially a Quality over quantity Tower Defense game.

Dunno why but I found the story to be interesting and liked the characters and concept alot. Gave me a few smiles and chuckles too; its good to have a story that is competent yet not overly fleshed out.

If you have some spare hours or have bursts of spare time like 15 minutes, I feel this is a good time waster :D

I look forward to my new game plus playthrough now.

Easily one of the best tower defense games ever made.

If for some reason you are a big fan of tower defense games but play this game and don't like it, then there is something wrong with you...

This game in particular is pretty interesting as far as TD genre goes, since the way it works it has both the familiar back to basics feel/aspect to it AND it has new innovative and refreshing aspects that haven't really been done before or much that just improve the genre to a new and good level.

A Diamond in the rough. Out of all the crap games here on Steam, that look good & look promising...this game actualy delivers. One of the rare gems of a game that gives you exactly what you would want & hope for from a game like this.

Combining the tower defense & RPG qualities is done perfectly with a fairly balanced level up system & an excellent & fairly deep story line that gets you interested in the characters & the story & gives you hours & hours of tower defense + RPG goodness. Even more hours if you are a completionest & want to redo the levels on the harder modes. If you like this type of game, this is one of the few that really deliver & you cant go wrong with this game. A solid 9.5/10.

I forgot I had this game and I am ashamed that I forgot I had it. I had a lot of fun playing this before, as I did just now, but it is late. I feel it deserves my thumbs up. I'll tell ya why.

You are a lady who finds people to join you and help out as the story progresses. The story is quite nice. The people are funny and will often make jokes and claim that they hate the hero, when really they don't.

The actual gameplay itself is typical of most tower defense. You have a grid where you place your units (the 'people' that joined you), and they fight when something is near. What I like about this game is that the different types of units work together. I won't go into any detail about this because you'll probably want to experience it yourself.

Each level is split up into four difficulties. So if you're feeling brave, you can try the hardest. Even if you fail your units will still gain experience points. If you're feeling like a wuss, try the casual setting.

The units have skill trees which you apply 1 point on each level up. I find this to be very rewarding, although sometimes when you complete a level you may have to apply a buncha points (I had to apply about 20 before after one level). C'est la vie.

It is well worth the whatever I paid for it. I don't remember buying it, but I am very glad I did. You'll not be disappointed if you're a fan of tower defense games with a hint of humour and a nice storyline.

I wrote a review for this about a year or so ago but thought I'd rewrite it as I have some different and new views on the game.

First off, this is a tower defense game that revolves around a well written story with a nicely done narrative that includes all the who/what/when/where/why questions, along with moments of subtle humor and despair. On the first play through you get all the character dialogue that propels the story but not a whole lot more. On the second play through you get the main character's (Azra unless otherwise named) thoughts after each mission is completed. These journal entries go pretty in-depth for being subtext you don't even need to go through. There are some 30 entries and I do recommend reading them.

The game starts with the Azra wondering where the hell she is and finding the first warrior, Slak, entering into a battle against the Revenant (dead). The story progresses and you will find all the other characters (read 'towers'). There are six others you find and you can have up to six of them in that class, in total allowing you to have an army of 36 towers and Azra.

The Berserker is a hack 'n' slash guy. He wields a sword, wears no shirt, and thirsts for blood.
The Ranger is your snarky and quick witted bow expert. She often griefs Azra on menial things such as, "not being pretty enough to have her plans work out."
The Healer comes off as overprotective and cautious but holds the team together.
The Ice Mage is cold and has cynical tendencies but wields the power to stop hordes of foes.
The Knight is rightous and pledges himself to Azra. He takes down the strongest enemies by ripping them of their armor.
The Dragon is the last to join the group. She acts like a god and thinks the humans beneath her yet is impressed at how far Azra and her companions have traveled thus far. She also enjoys eating sheep.

With these characters you can create varying strategies on every battlefield in the game. Some will require a near exact positioning that you'll figure out by trial and error, while others are more liberal in placement. You can pull off a ton of combos though and it's cool to find something that synergizes well.

Now, along with all the characters, each has a skill branch (not tree since there are only two directions it goes) and with each level you get one point to put in each skill slot. Most of them are damage boosts for their attack tier (each character has a five tier attack that is upgraded through Psi that is earned by killing enemies in the level) and the rest are passive buffs. They can include skill cooldowns, range, crit/poison/bleed/blind/armor piercing chance, slow/stun/burn, group damage amplifiers and tagging enemies so they take more damage.

Azra also has six spells she can upgrade. There are three damage and three buff spells. A direct lightning attack, an area of effect crystal explosion, and a full screen flame attack. The buffs are sending your characters into a frenzy to increase attack speed, massive healing, and pushing back waves of enemies. There are also unlockable spell books that can be equipped to provide boosts.

There are three weapons in game that two classes can use. Swords for the Berserker and Knight, a bow for the Ranger, and staffs for the Healer and Ice Mage. Progressing through the story increases the price and damage of future weapons. Armor can be equipped to them as well, heavy and light variants.

The max level each member can achieve is 60 so you won't be able to max every skill on each character. The good thing about having multiple in a class means that you can have someone with a high bleed chance, and give the other person the higher armor piercing chance. At any point you can pay a small fee of scrap (currency) to respec their builds.

So that's the gist of the game. Pretty straight forward. Where things really get rolling are on the new game +. Much more challenging and rewarding. A new currency of "skulls" becomes used to upgrade the special weapons and armors you aquire through missions. It's pretty hard to get all the skulls as you'll need to grind to get your characters to a high enough level to beat the much harder than before levels. There are also a few puzzles hidden here and there that you need to keep an eye out for. I had some trouble with it and found a guide and without it there would've never been a way I'd have caught on.

All in all, more than your run of the mill tower defense game, great story, fun and unique characters, scaling rewards that only get better and better through all the challenges, and tons of replayability as there is mod support.

Oh, if you really want a challenge, there's an achievement to beat the game and new game + with only the original characters, not using any of the extra hired ones. And then getting 180 stars (awarded through level completion). That took a ton of time.

A simple game that reminded me of those old games like bejeweled. (interface wise and how easy it is to play) Of course, easy doesn't always mean boring. It's really good and I wish I played it more on steam because the gog version I played was worth it.

If you have any interest in the tower defense genre at all, get this game. It is by far the most enjoyable tower defense game I've played. The writing is really good and the maps are all fun to play multiple times. It's got lots of content for completionsists as well.

Après avoir terminé le jeu en normal, que dire de ce Defender's quest....qu'il s'agit d'un très bon tower Défense. Certe il ne révolutionne pas le genre et en reprend les principes du genre avec application et sérieux. Pourtant le titre se distingue par son coté RPG plutot bien vu. Ici pas question que vos persos repartent à zéro à chaque nouvelle mission. Mais, à la manière d'un tactique/RPG ils gagnerons des levels au fil de leur combat. Un arbre de compétance vous permet également des les rendre plus balèze, à vous de bien placer les points chèrement gagnés.
Graphiquement le jeu se veut assez minimaliste mais plutot agréable et l'ambiance éroique fantazy facon old school nous charme de suite.
Coté durée de vie, le titre est solide et vous tiendra longtemps éveillé, surtout si vous décidez de faire le jeu à 100 %, sans compter sur le New game +, bref il y a de quoi faire.
Voila un bilan plus que positif pour ce DQ recommandable et à recommander ^^

gros coup de coeur le jeux ce fini en 10 heure, en ligne droite, mais si vous faite le game+ et les 3 étoile sur chaque niveau, vous pouvez bien tripler la durée de vie je pense, le jeux est vraiment excelent, seule pas de traduction FR :/
