What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great platform to create new and exciting gameplay with our players. Players will get to test out concepts and features that have never been seen before, from maps filled with lava or giant whirlwinds. During the Early Access we will test out concepts for a progression system and new characters. Player comments and suggestions will allow us to tune and shape the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the Early Access Phase to take 3 to 4 months.”

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

“The full version is planned to have a progression system and an extended range of maps and playable characters.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is stable and with 3 playable characters and 4 highly dynamic maps (and 1 tutorial map). Online multiplayer is playable and we support up to 4 player co-op play. We are intending at add content on a bi-weekly basis to the Early Access.”

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

“We are offering a 25% discount during the Early Access phase.”

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

“Transparency and constant communication is crucial to the Hell Warders Early Access. We will collect user feedback and suggestions in Game, through Steam community forums and our website. We will also be hosting developer live streams for users to ask us questions and give us feed back.”

Dev Blog: Week 7 - Tower & Quest drafted

Thank you for reading this week's development blog! After a long week of development, the first draft of tower loadout and quest system are finally complete!! I can tell you that both systems complement each other very well, I am excited to show this system to every one of you!!! Now we have to start balancing the both system and improve UI & UX of them.

Buying towers & personalize your own tower loadout. There will be a specific amount of resource per quest (starting resource + drop from monsters); therefore you will only be able to summon a specific number of towers. The tower leveling progression is also one of the fun parts, where you spend resources you gain after completing each quest to level up them.


There will also be at least 4 new towers, 6 new monsters and 1 playable character added into the game after the next patch! I look forward to bring this patch to live, but there are still tons of balancing and new content require testing.

These are just placeholder.

Dev Blog: Week 6 - Tower Loadout (10/7/2017)

Welcome again to the weekly development blog of Hell Warders. This blog will be about the progress of Tower Loadout system. We have finished the Quest and Missions system previous week and continue to create various kinds of quests.

Tower loadout system is a total revamp of our game-core, which will replace the picking of Spirit Orb. This tower loadout system in-game will be similar to Dungeon Defenders or Orc Must Die. Additionally, we provide a way more depth about it.

Our Tower Loadout system will allow players to
1) Level-up quality and quantity of these towers
2) Select which towers to bring into specific quests
3) Have own combination of towers

In details, players will get currency from completing missions, then spend them onto whether leveling the towers stats or quantity, to be able to summon more in a mission. Players also can choose any combination they like, for example, if players want to do 6 catapult towers or 20 blockades, it is entirely up to the player's choice.

More news about the Tower Loadout system as we further develop it!

Reviews

“It’s tower defence meets third-person stabbing/shooting (with a choice of classes to play as).  There are single player challenges as well as multiplayer, and it’s in pretty good shape for an early access title.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Characters are responsive and the animations are smooth and epic adding to the action perfectly”
Early Access Gaming

“Even in these early stages of development Hell Warders looks fantastic, with fast paced co-op combat, strategic defence building and epic battles with massive monsters.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

About This Game

Hell Warders is part of a new sub-genre known as “action-defense.” You and your friends are tasked with defending the Nexus from unrelenting demon assaults. Play as Ash the Ember Knight, cannon-wielding specialist Dead Eye the Tainted or crafty hero explosives specialist Samson III in teams of four to scout for power-ups and create an effective (and deadly) defensive perimeter. Fight alone or alongside soldiers with distinct abilities to withstand the might of the demon horde across a number of thematic maps – each with its unique environmental twist. Set up archers, catapults, and mages – and carefully choose where to place them for maximum defensive cover. However, defending only goes so far: The demon army waits for no man and will ruthlessly attack from all angles! Vanquish demons with powerful weapons, unmatched hero skills, and giant gargoyles!

Key Features:


  • Action tower defense meets hero tower defense: - Heroes can unleash devastating abilities and deploy strategic towers in this new defense sub-genre.
  • 4 Player Co-op - Combine forces and battle the legions of evil! Hell Warders supports cooperative play with friends or other fellow Warders online.
  • Multiple Playable Classes - Choose from a roster of diverse heroes – each with unique skills and abilities.
  • Upgradeable characters - Level up to upgrade skills and perks – and defeat monsters your way.
  • Epic Enemies - From giant earth-shattering wurms to magic wielding lyches, the enemy will not wait for you.
  • Dynamic Maps - Dodge flowing lava or fly on a giant spinning fan! Every map in Hell Warders is dynamic and opens up a ton of different strategies.

Story


For as long as mankind can remember, the Warders gave their lives fighting back the forces of darkness. Though the attacks were fearsome, the struggle never seemed hopeless before.

Until one day, night fell and ceaseless legions of towering demons flowed forth. Entire kingdoms crumbled before the sun rose again to reveal an endless army reaching the horizons. Only a handful of humans stood in front of them.

Through great sacrifice, these Hell Warders crafted the first of the Nexuses to hold back the worst of hell. But the demonic vanguard marches ever closer and the Hell Warders must defend against evil itself. A hopeless endeavour, some would say. But so long as one pillar of light remains, there will be Hell Warders.
