New Soundtrack files, temporarily removed Korean Translation

Hey everybody! I've got good news and bad news.

Bad news first:

Apparently some new law has been passed in South Korea that requires all games sold on Steam that support the Korean language to be officially rated by the Korean game rating's agency, or GRAC. When I got notice of this, I immediately got in touch with our Korean fan translators, Team.SM, to see what the process would be.

Team.SM seems to be unhappy with the new law, and in an apparent protest have (politely) asked us to remove their fan translation from Steam. We will respect their wishes and do so -- the files will be removed shortly in a new update.

To be clear - Level Up Labs has no official position on South Korean politics, South Korean game rating policies, or the law in question. We're just respecting the wishes of our fan translators.

I do hope that in the future we can restore the translation, and if the situation is resolved somehow, we will immediately restore the translation files.

EDIT: If you were using the korean translation and now the game is crashing, the fix is here:

The Good News

So, we have always shipped the game's original soundtrack with the game files, but it was hidden away in your game files as a nondescript .zip file. With the recent addition of Steam's music player, we have pushed an update that will make Steam auto-detect the soundtrack in the music player! Check the "Music" section of your library.

Also, we have a major announcement coming soon RE: Defender's Quest 2. Stay tuned!

Über dieses Spiel

Defender's Quest ist ein Tower-Defense/RPG-Hybrid (oder: Final Fantasy Tactics trifft auf Tower Defense).

Defender's Quest legt den Fokus auf drei Dinge: taktische Tiefe, Anpassung und Story. Das bedeutet: keine zufälligen Begegnungen, keine spitzhaarigen Emokinder, keine Zeitverschwendung und keine langweiligen, sich wiederholenden Kämpfe.

Das Kampfsystem orientiert sich an dem des Tower Defense, wobei individuelle Charaktere die Rolle der Türme übernehmen. Jeder Charakter verbessert sich, lernt Fertigkeiten und rüstet sich individuell aus, was dem Spieler erlaubt seine Kampferfahrung und Strategie anzupassen. Im Großen und Ganzen ähnelt es den "taktischen" RPGs, jedoch mit einem Echtzeit-Kampfsystem. Die Spielgeschwindigkeit ist einstellbar und Befehle können sogar gegeben werden, während das Spiel pausiert ist.

Das Spiel bietet außerdem eine fesselnde, Charakter-getriebene Story! Die Story strebt danach flott, schwungvolle und immer passend zum Gameplay zu sein. Ereignisse und Dialoge erläutern Sachverhalte, sobald sie für den Spieler relevant werden.

Letztendlich gibt es Optionen und haufenweise Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, um das Spiel zugänglicher zu gestalten, sodass Sie das bestmögliche Erlebnis erhalten!

Most tower defense style games are much the same. Arrange towers and use them to kill enemies. This one has plot, characters, and story. One laced with humor. If you like tower defense I recomend you pick this one up. It will get you hooked on both style and story.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Defender Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is a 2D game with a unique blend of TD and RPG from Level Up Labs. It features characters / companions who act as 'towers' and need to be strategically placed around the map to defend your main character Azra. Unlike a tower defense game, however, you can level up and equip items for your companions to help them improve in combat.

You take the role of Azra, a royal librarian of the Kingdom of Ash which is currently being ravaged by a plague. Azra gets infected and thrown into 'The Pit', a place where all dead or dying are placed to keep the kingdom safe because those who die from the Plague become 'Revenants', undead monsters that are immune to physical harm. Azra soon discovers that she has the power to enter both the living world and the 'Half-Way' world, a place between the living realm & the realm of the dead. In this realm, she can summon her companions to fight the Revenants in their spirit form and eventually kill them.

PROS:
+ Refreshing new mix of genres
+ 8-bit sprite art style that works well with the game
+ Character / Companion progression is deep and extensive
+ Well designed Maps and Mazes
+ Very challenging difficulty levels
+ 6 base classes (towers) which can progress into different builds depending on your play-style
+ Dialogues between characters are humorous
+ Steam Workshop support

CONS:
- Cutscene art work could use a lot of improvement (especially the character designs)
- Story is a bit weak
- Balance issues (some classes are outright better than others)
- Some necessary but boring grinding sessions to progress
- No real 'HD' or Widescreen Support
- No Steam Cloud Support

CONCLUSION:
It is a GOOD GAME and one of the better tower defense games out there. I can easily recommend this game if you're looking for a challenging and unique game since it mixes RPG elements to the tried-and-tested Tower Defense genre. The 8-bit sprites, animations and effects are nice and work well with the game's art style although the Cutscene artwork could really use improvements. The levels are very well planned and are fun to play. Finally, the in-game dialogue between your companions is funny and quite entertaining.

I can easily RECOMMEND this game even at full price since it’s only $14.99 or your regional equivalent. With simple graphics, this game is not system requirement heavy and can easily run even on netbook computers making this a perfect game when you're on vacation, working, passing the time, or in any other situation where you are not with your main gaming system.

Don't let the simple art fool you, this game is really well designed and manages to be challenging without seeming unfair. I'm not a huge tower defence fan but this won me over very quickly.

To be honest, when I saw this game I only picked it up cause it was cheap, but damn if i were to talk about a game that game me the most value for my dollars, well it would have to be this one. If you're a fan of playing games through again, with like a second more difficult mode, that gives more insight into the story, well then this one is definitely for you.

If you're a person who likes turned based rpgs, there is alot of the elements of being able to take your time and strategize, while all the same, you can just charge through really quick once you know your strengths, and how to use them most effectively.

And lastly, If you love a good laugh that was written and delivered amazingly, you should totally name all the main characters after your friends and loved ones. It makes for a good laugh, and you think of your friends, slightly helping the social aspect of the brain, while completely being absorbed into this great single player game, that will make you think your not alone in playing it for so many hours...and if you're not really alone inside your head, well that makes the adventure even more interesting! Such a great game. I recommend it a few times over.

Defender's Quest
Rating : 8/10

More than decent tower\defense RPG blended game set in a fantasy world. Pick your heroes and level them up each time you engage the enemy. You progress nicely through the levels to become a badass party. Kinda interesting story, good sound and soundtrack and easy to hop into. Graphics are retro and are nicely done.

Had lots of fun with this game, so definitely recommended!

As tower defense games go, this is a really good one! I really like that on each level you can change the difficulty from calm to challenging to frustrating - so I can set it for whatever mood I feel like playing in. And leveling up as you go, then going back with stronger warriors to beat older levels on higher difficulty really feels rewarding.

The story has some humorous and somewhat interesting bits, but it's a mostly simple backdrop to the tower defense that drives the game. Once you complete the story, you can go back for the more difficult story+ mode which adds several sidequests to fill in some blanks. It gives the game a nice bit of extra replay value.

Well, reviewing a title that is available for 2 years now seems useless, yet i'll do it anyway :-)

Judging by the graphics i wonder why i even bought it. Maybe because i like Tower-Defense-Games.
But i was suprised with this cute little quillet.

What exactly is it?
It's a TD-Game without towers. But with people. Typical RPG-People like berzerkers, mages, healers and rangers and...
And you'll keep your "Towers" throughout the game and they'll receive XP and level-up. You can even color them and give them names.
You move through a story with cutscenes, but mainly you'll fight waves of enemies with your party.

The good:
  • Borderless fullscreen AKA non-exclusive Fullscreen. Yay. Scaled to your resolution OR changed resolution. Nifty!
  • Don't like the speed of advancement? Change XP/monetary reward to 300%! Or 50%.
  • Leveling and outfitting your "towers" is a nice approach. You'll have veterans and noobs to place on each map.
  • Speed adjustment from 0x (pause) to 4x. Nice. Pausable at all times. No pressure there.
  • You can adjust your partymembers fighting tactics and even make them persistant (attack which target first, use high power abilities on lower foes etc.)
  • Beside your party you'll have your main hero that has misc. spells at her disposal.
  • TD-like you can play each map in different difficulties with proportional rewards. It pays to replay an older mission on EXPERT!
  • The way they make you "like" their facebook/twitter-page was really cute. I almost felt bad NOT to click :-)
  • Workshop! For those extra hours to waste
  • It has a real story with cute cutscenes. I admit to have skipped much of it, but for some it may add immersion.

The bad:
  • For some, it may possibly lack depth of strategy/difficulty. It looks more like a "casual" tower-defense.
  • Ok, to be nit-picky: The skills you're able to choose are too few. No big descisions to make, you're getting them
    all more or less anyway.

TL;DR:
Bought "Defenders of time" at the same time and it seemed much more promising. Oh boy was i wrong.
Kicked "DoT" off of my HD after 2 minutes and played this one for hours. Graphics is not everything.
This is a fun and refreshing towerdefense-game where you keep your "towers" and level them up. Also you'll
try to outfit them with better weapons and armor. I surely had my fun. Would be even worth fullprice!

Legitimately good TD

Pros:
-PERMANENT progression with characters/"towers"
-Challenging as hell
-Lots of post-story content
-Items are nice
-Script is pretty humourous
-Good TD mechanics. No mazing, but the mazes themselves are alright. Tower placement is emphasized

Cons:
-Only a few types of towers, and you usually don't get enough Mana to build many/upgrade them anyway
-Some classes outright suck compared to others (cough, dragons, cough)
-On the other hand, some classes are NECESSARY to complete every level (assuming you're not playing on baby mode)
-Unlocking everything is a pain in the ♥♥♥♥, don't bother unless you want to spend 800 hours on this game afking while your towers do the work for you

A straight and forward tower defense game. If you like the genre, I very very highly recommend this game. If you don't like the genre, I doubt any game would be able to change your mind, and suggest that you carry on.

Defender's Quest managed to impress me by literally exceeding the average in every way I can think of.

+ Not a rehash of another tower defense game - it didn't really do anything extraordinary within the genre, yet I can't think of a single game I'd call it similar to.
+ Holy ♥♥♥♥, the story is actually good, the characters fun, and the funny parts actually funny.
+ There is no ultimate strategy that works for the game (build/upgrade order, etc). Each map forces a new strategy based on the availability of locations to place your characters, and enemy monster types.
+ There are dozens of maps, with 4 different difficulty settings, all of which have a New Game+ version which play differently. This game will take many dozens of hours to complete.
+ The music is good. Nothing spectacular, but for the genre and the pricetag, exceeds standards.
+ Lots of things to play with in the options menu.
+ Family friendly - I would see absolutely no problem in an 8 year old playing this game.

I didn't come into this game with any expectations. I hadn't even heard of it before I saw the trailer on the bundle, but this game actually ended up being fantastic. I couldn't put it down once I started. The gameplay is well-balanced, leaving you with many levels just barely cleared once you get to the higher levels. While I did expect more from the RPG aspects (I literally built every unit from every class identically), I enjoyed the story, and found the game keeping my interest for quite awhile for an indy title.

Though, out of everything, I have to say that the best part of this game was its music. The soundtrack for this is amazing. It definitely makes every battle feel epic, and does change to suit the mood at certain key points.

Overall, I'm so glad I played this. Thumbs up from me.

This is one of those games that blindsided me when I tried it. It has a "just one more try" quality that kept me playing for hours, and a charming story and cast to boot.

The upgrade system had me bogged down at times (i.e. paralyzed by options), but there's no denying the level of engagement this game provided in strategy and planning.

There are few games that tempt me to replay existing content for better scores, and this is one of them. (Especially the sheep level!) Give the free demo a shot! And clear your schedule :)

Defender's Quest is a fun tower defence game infused with a little RPG element while having a strange yet humorous plot. The majority of the game isn't much of a challenge, so I would recommend this game to those who are new to this genre. However, that's not to say that avid tower defence players would not enjoy this with its strategic gameplay consisting of many unique map designs as well as the combination of old school tower abilities such as slows, critical damage and AOE effects. The RPG element in this game is very minor (you have the ability to upgrade skills and buy or find equipments) and without it, this game is your typical tower defence game. This is a great game to pick up to play for all kinds of gamers and non-gamers!

This game brought back refreshing memories of old school tower defence games I used to play. Unfortunately once you play a few tower defence games it seems like you have played them all. However, Defender's Quest is unlike all those other games with its humour and fantastic story to boot. I had laughed so hard at some of the comments between the characters when they interacted that I had to explain to my friends what I was laughing at. The game itself plays very well. It is not terribly difficult to beat the game, however new game + and the secrets hidden in the game are very difficult. Unfortunately it took a community of players to find all the secrets in the game, which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you like the challenge. If you are an achievement hunter this one will take some time and patience, or just some forum searching.

The best tower defense game I've played. It combines stander TD mechanics with rpg and story, bringing life to the game and keeping it fresh throughout. It even adds XP and Currencey boosting options to make things go by a little faster if you're getting a little tired of the gameplay.

This game is super fun, super cool, and has a really chill company that is STILL listening to feedback for a three year old game. DFQ2 is in the works, and they're working on re-releasing DFQ1 on the same engine that #2's gonna be on, BUT IN GLORIOUS HD. also this game features a female lead, really cool post-apocalyptic/plague-time setting, has TONS of silliness and laughs yet manages not to downplay the really uncool villainous stuff for comedic effect. Definitely recommmend!
