Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are adding to our roster of Towers, Creeps and Arena Maps throughout Early access based on feedback from the community. Help us develop our player vs player arena tower defense game. Even though Fire with Fire is more of an underdog compared to other big name tower defense games, I hope you find quality comparable to Clash Royale, Bloons, etc, with strategic depth far superior.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to remain in Early Access for approximately two to four months depending on player feedback on the size and balance of the tower / unit roster. Full release is expected mid 2016”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are regularly adding to the roster of towers and units during early access and tweaking balance.

New features such as activated abilities while attacking and defending will be added, along with numerous changes based on player feedback.

The final game will also include a story driven campaign where many items can be unlocked for use in online matches.

Full Feature List:
  • Online Matchmaking
  • New Towers, Creeps, maps, skins
  • Achievement based player leveling system
  • In match Creep leveling system
  • Tower set tech trees
  • New game modes
  • Using abilities while defending and attacking
  • Player ranking system
  • Custom Games vs friends
  • Equip fruit on your trees for added creep and defensive bonuses
  • Controller Support
  • In match emotes

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We currently have 25 towers and 12 creeps fully implemented, each with unique mechanics. Most of the features listed above are fully functional, fun and stable. Some add on features such as using abilities, ranking, emotes and other game modes will be finished soon.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is free to play. All game play content is unlock-able within the game for free, arena skins and other items will have an option for purchase for lower prices than release while we improve and balance content during Early Access.

If you enjoy the game, please consider supporting further development by getting an arena skin!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback from the community is incredibly important to achieve the best online arena tower defense game possible. Together we can build a game the community will enjoy for a long time to come and as an e-sport in the future.

In addition to bug reports, game balance feedback and fire pun suggestions for unit names and description, we are always taking in tower, creep and ability theme and mechanic ideas. Though game mechanics will ultimately be decided by the team, we plan on allowing the community vote on which themed tower and creep sets will become available next.

Game updates will be frequent and ongoing throughout early access and beyond.
Detailed patch note and balance changes will be available every update.”

UPDATE 0.9.10: Faster matches, cheaper items and a new skin.

Hey Everyone, long time no see. We're back at it again here with many incrimental updates to game play design and content in the pipeline. Starting off with big balance changes and a new skin in 0.9.10

Gameplay Changes:
We decided to up the ante for matches. Creeps are faster and more resilient while towers have become more deadly. This should significantly reduce average match length. The following changes change the effectivness of all towers. We appreciate your help with balance feedback following this update. Thank you!
  • Creeps spawn 20% faster thus match rounds will be about that much faster.
  • Creep Move Speed increased by 20% further shortening round time.
  • Creep Armor base increased by 2.
  • Tower Damage increased by 20%
  • Tower Attack Speed increaded by 10%
  • Hydron Tower Damage bonus decreased by 10% to lower it's benefit from enemy creep speed.(Hydron still technically received a buff from this update)
  • Particle Tower Attack Speed increased by 10% to further compensate the new creep speed.

Store and Economy Changes:
  • All items in the store seeds and kindling costs have been drastically reduced by 18%-66%
  • Skins can now be purchased with Seeds as well as Kindling.
  • Achievement seed rewards increased by 25 each. Match Seed rewards have been slightly decreased.

Introducing Sauté Sands
A new skin to choose from.

In the pipeline for future updates
Looking forward to delivering these changes in future updates on a more frequent basis.
  • More Skins! We have a bunch of skins in the works which we will introduce packaged with other new content.
  • Round Ready button: When both players click "Ready!" the round will start skipping the 45sec timer.
  • Widescreen resolution and larger battlefield areas. We are expanding the playfield!
  • New tower set in the works. Coming soon!
