Fortix 2 is a cross between the old fence off to conquer and nowadays popular puzzle games (spiced up with some turret defense). Yes it is pretty hard to explain but once you try it, it is in fact quite simple. And addictive, very addictive! Players control Knight Fortix on his epic journey against the minions of the evil mage Xitrof. He has to fight his way across the shires of island Artalom storming from castle to castle to eventually fight the mage himself. Players need to use cunning strategy to succeed against the maze/puzzle like levels infested by all kinds of monsters and defensive turrets. The aim in the game is to conquer (corner off) parts of the playfield thus extending the base line more and more towards the middle where eventually the players have to fence off Xitrof’s dark badges, to win the level.
Fortix 2 always had Zombie mode in it, but we had it hidden, for a little while at least. Now we are telling you exactly how to access it.

Zombies? Who doesn’t love Zombies? We sure do! That’s why we included them into Fortix 2, but didn’t tell you about it…until now! Nemesys Games is officially announcing Zombie Mode Unleashed
How is it done? Diligently harassing the semi musical bird on the title screen with your mouse will give you a nice treat. A soothing stroll around the Fortix world, for eternity! The zombies might be slow, but they do multiply fast and will catch up with you.
After tiring out the bird once, there will be the lazy option of switching between game modes with a button on the bottom right of the screen.
We have uploaded the demo of Fortix 2 here on IndieDB. Unfortunately, Zombie mode is not accessible in it so, if you want to take a crack it, grab the full version!
Fortix 2 is also being released on Desura today! To celebrate our further expansion into the digital distribution market, we are having 2 game key giveaway contests at once.
