Become a Hero on XBox One and PS4

Dear fellow HEROES,

Today we have heroic news for you.

We recently slowed down on regular updates. This is because we’ve been working full-time on bringing HERO DEFENSE to Xbox One and Playstation 4.

We are getting closer to the console release, and can honestly say that the experience playing on a big screen with controller is quite outstanding.

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement with our friends at Headup Games to move the development of HERO DEFENSE to this new direction.

Most importantly, Headup Games strongly believe in our HERO DEFENSE vision in our conversations since our first Greenlight announcement. Their support and experience has helped to realize HERO DEFENSE’s console development.

Due to our new partnership and the console release plans, we are temporarily disabling new Steam purchases during the transition period.

What does this mean for HERO DEFENSE on Steam? Well, here’s the plan:
  • Relaunch on Steam in 2017 with the Xbox One and PS4 release
  • Attract an expanded audience with the new Steam edition
  • If you already have HD on Steam, you will also get Continued support and updates.
  • Multiplayer will be removed for the new version. We haven’t sustained a large enough player-base to offer a strong multiplayer experience
  • Multiplayer may be re-introduced at a later stage if the new edition attracts enough players

For further inquiries, please reach out to our friends at Headup Games via

As always, it’s important for Happy Tuesday to be close to you, our community – on the forums, Facebook, Twitter and wherever you want to touch base with us.

We hope you’re looking forward to HERO DEFENSE’s console release and Steam re-launch as much as us, and we thank you for joining us on this heroic journey.

Keep hunting,
Happy Tuesday & Headup Games
