What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is the best way to make the game perfect!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This will depend a lot on the feedback we receive. A rough estimate would be 2 to 4 months, 2 being the strict minimum we need to implement features we already have in mind and take your feedback into account.”

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

“The features that we’ll be adding to the game over the next few months include:
  • A finished story campaign
  • Two extra difficulties for each mission
  • New player's units
  • Ability upgrades for strong units
  • Magic upgrade system
  • New Co-op and PvP missions
  • Artifacts system. New consumable items.
  • Some maps will be remodelled
  • Extra language support. German and Japanese in the beginning
  • Extra platform support (Mac/Linux)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We start with 13 of 25 story missions. In this state you can play different maps types: Classic, PvP and Co-op (unlocks after 5th story mission), Maze (unlocks after 6th story mission). All game classes will be playable.”

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

“Our plan for now is to have the Early Access version cheaper than the full release. Both as a thank you to our testers and to reflect the amount of content that will be added during Early Access.”

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

“We will be using the Steam Community forums to gather and discuss feedback. Will also have an in game feature that you can use to send bug reports easily directly to us.”

Patch #1 for 1.04 version is here!

Hello there,

We made some changes in the code, so some of bugs when new missions won't start with Alternative Server setting. Also, it should resolve the problem, when the player finished the level and got no reward from it. Hope, it helps.

You could help us much. If something similar appears again - could you send us output_log file to Euler@battlecruiser.ru

It would make easier to find the real problem. Thanks in advance!

We have also fixed some bugs:
- Achievement for Astral level now works fine (kills with Dissecting Blow)
- Market (Treasurer skill) and items from the backpack now works fine
- Axe items (bonus wood reward) works properly now. Actually, they worked fine, there was wrong number in the reward window
- Amount of gold for achievement of Magic Gem is lowered from 40 to 35. So it is achievable now. Skill Bravery will be fixed later (it works on single missions now only)
- Fixed the bug in On The March survival achievements when magic kills wasn't counted
- Fixed the different achievement description for Old School Level
- When you start new mission there are no more animations of dead monsters of previous level

Stay with us,

Major Update. Version 1.04 is here!



Hello there,

This December was really hard. Our programmer was sick all month. This is the second update in this month. It contains not so much stuff. But we tried to do our best.

First of all we added new co-op mission, Old School Map. It contains 40 simple waves and should remind you how first TD games looks like. There is only story mode for now. We will add challenge and survival mode in future patch. The last one will contain 100 waves. Let's see if you like it
If it is interesting, we will add - we will add more similar maps in future.

We finally fixed campaign rating. Wow, there are so many players who passed all 96 missions on Gold Start. We really appreciate you like the game.

We made several changes in skill system. We hope it will make all classes more competitive.

About This Game

A fearsome Chieftain is gathering an army, intent on the subjugation of the realm. The Villagers cry out for a hero! Someone to rise up and rescue them from their plight. This burden falls to you. Build a city, train an army, and equip your subjects. Seek out the assistance of helpful allies, such as dwarves, amazons, and sorceresses. With allies to help, and an army of your own, you can defeat the invading army and make the realm safe again!

Features

  • 7 basic units, with a further 15 available as upgrades!
  • Intriguing story with beautifully drawn artwork.
  • 3 Vastly different Classes for you to choose from: Warlord, Sorcerer, and Treasurer. Over 70 different skills in all!
  • Diverse array of spells: Firewall, Lightning, Meteor Shower, Titan's Fist, Summon Elemental, Poisonous Cloud, Transmutation, and more! Only 4 spells can be brought into battle though, so choose wisely!
  • Multiple different game modes: Classic, Challenge, Survival, Maze, Hero Defense, Attack/Defend (Also used in PvP,) and Co-op missions throughout the campaign.
  • Upgrade Defenders in the workshop! Multiple upgrades with several tiers for each defender. More upgrades become available as you build and improve your town.

Gameplay

Unlike regular Tower Defense games, Warstone TD has a unique method of summoning defenders (towers). You start with a fairly empty map and a few stones where you can place defenders. As the level progresses, more stones appear and some even drop from enemies, allowing you to place them in any valid position on the map. Powerful Warstones also appear occasionally which give significant bonuses to defenders standing on them. You can summon any of the 5 basic defenders on the stones: Peasant, Archer, Rifleman, Sorceress, and Elemental. Each basic defender has its own upgrade path, damage type, gold cost, and special abilities!


Warstone TD also has 2 extra base units only available for use in attack/defense missions, the Eagle and the Wolf. Each have branching upgrade paths, like the basic defenders. With such a variety of defenders and game classes there is a huge amount of tactics in PvP battles, increasing replayability even further!

There are 30 story missions and each mission has 3 modes: Campaign, Challenge, and Survival. The player can choose the difficulty of each mission from 4 settings: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Nightmare. Each mode has a unique achievement which gives a star when completed, the color of the star corresponds to the difficulty of the mission: gold for Nightmare, silver for Hard, and bronze for Normal. Levels have a lot of possible solutions but, with so many combinations, you're going to need to perfect your strategy to master them. And just in case you forget how awesome you are, there's an online leaderboard, which tracks your score, both in Campaign mode and PvP. Compete with your friends, or enemies!

Class system

After you progress through the first 4 missions in the campaign, you are able to choose a class to augment your abilites in battle. The classes are non-linear, you can pick and choose skills from any class, but you have to focus on a class if you want to get the most powerful skills.
  • The Mighty Warlord greatly increases the effectiveness of your army! He improves the power and abilities of your defenders, can unleash the power of stone to help in battle; allowing placement of stones to slow nearby enemies, or give you a surge of mana and gold. He also has skills which allow your defenders to level up in battle, becoming more powerful with each successive rank.
  • The Cunning Treasurer's weapon is gold! He is a master of item storage, able to fit an improbably large number of items into his backpack, and find many more scrolls and even potions during battles. Everything he does is for gold! He is able to increase bounty for enemies killed, make his own defenders cheaper, and eventually can even get a powerful spell that allows you to transmute an enemy into pure gold! With all of these abilities, the Treasurer can field a much bigger army than any other class.
  • The Powerful Sorcerer is able to complete levels using only spells! He can bring up to eight spells into battle, increasing flexibilty greatly. His skills revolve around buffing spell effectiveness, regenerating mana, unlocking more powerful spells, and he can even transform units into mana. Among the spells the sorcerer can unlock are: Summon Elemental, Reduction; which shrinks and debuffs monsters, Meteor Shower, and Teleportation; which allows you to teleport defenders to any available stone on the map.
Join the fight today, in Warstone TD!
