What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to be able to hear player feedback as we produce new content. It's of the utmost importance to us that we create a loving community built on good communication where conversations are a two-way street and every person involved feels listened to.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our intended timeline allows us to step out of early access and into full release around December however this may change.”

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

“For starters the final product will include a fully feature story. We have plans to include additional game modes and possibly releasing our inhouse level editor so that we can provide a way to create community content through the Steam Workshop.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Upon initial release we have a good portion of the story already available (about 20% completed) which can be played in both singleplayer or co-op. We've made sure to include lots of quality of life features as well such as rebindable controls and controller support. The games performance has been optimized so that from the get go you should be able to expect little to no problems with the application itself.”

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

“We intend to maintain the same price point throughout early access but may increase the priceonce we reach the full release.”

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

“We plan to regularly keep up-to-date with the Steam community hub. Feedback and suggestions will be replied to and prioritized as we feel is best for the game in its current state. This means adding new features or even small touches requested by players.”

Small Delay On Next Update!

We're pushing hard to complete the forest area of the game. We've completed most of the content now but we wanted to include the final boss battle with the Fire Wizard! The next update includes a lot of new content (including some new heads), fixes, and improvements. So hang tight!

About This Game

Discover a world brimming with humor, interesting characters, and adventure. Interact with overly observant villagers and egotistical wizards. You'll find yourself in a role more significant than a knight could ever dream of!

Any true hero can call upon trusty companions in their time of need. New strategies can be explored and singular pronouns laughed at when you bring along a friend! Play through the entire game alone or with a friend, the choice is yours.

Play online with friends anywhere in the world using Parsec!

Get ready for a tower defense game that takes an uncommon approach to player interaction. Slash goblins with your sword, roll through waves of enemies, and build towers as fast as you can. Collect coins from fallen foes, but be careful not to get hurt when maneuvering through the action!

Use nine powerful towers to build a strong defense, each tower more unique than the last. Upgrade your character as you advance through the story with a plethora of game-enhancing abilities. Anything unlocked in your skill tree will also apply in co-op mode, so everybody benefits! Unique towers, exciting abilities, and planned future game modes ensures you'll be back for more.

The whole experience is wrapped up in an unbelievable composition that contains everything from sweat inducing chiptunes to comedic ambience. The soundtrack currently has more than 10 songs, with plans to have more than 20 by the time the game is completed. You can expect even more adrenaline-fueled audio goodness with each update!

As an early access participant, you can expect a consistent release schedule for updates. We're aiming to push new updates biweekly, but we may release them even sooner if we're ahead of schedule.

Each update will include new content, balance changes, and even player requested features.
Care will be taken to keep save files intact!

Most importantly, we will be deeply involved in the community and constantly listening to your feedback. Interact with us here on the Steam community hub!
