What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great platform to create new and exciting gameplay with our players. A good game requires numerous times of re-iteration, and the best way to improve is by listening to the players. During the Early Access, we will test out concepts for new towers, maps, and characters. Player comments and suggestions will allow us to tune and shape the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Lots of changes are going into the game as we speak.
We're aiming to release in Spring 2018.”

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

“As we update the game, more campaign stages will be released.
Character progression is also in the making right now.
A second difficulty level and challenge game modes are also planned which will unlock more upgrades for players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have released 3 out of 4 planned campaign acts.
Totaling 17 stages in a single difficulty.
There are three playable characters.
Online multiplayer supports up to 4 player co-op play.”

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

“Early Access will cost less than full release.”

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

“Transparency and constant communication are crucial to the Hell Warders Early Access. We will collect user feedback and suggestions in Game, through Steam community forums and our website. We have been writing development blog weekly to inform our players about the game. We will also be hosting developer live streams for users to ask us questions and give us feedback.”

Nearly there!!

Finally, we have finished developing the Act 4. We have postponed our Act 4 release because we would like to take this time to polish the game and give all users a better experience. We have also spent a week in San Francisco exhibiting in GDC, and we have closed some deals with publishers. The estimated time for next upcoming patch 0.7 will be in 1-2 weeks!

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 - Battle demonic monsters from Hell, do not underestimate the mechanics of the boss.
  • Build Your Own Defenses - Set up archers, catapults, and mages– and carefully choose where to place them for maximum defensive cover.

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.
