Every wave the enemy gain strength, only wise planning and the bravest soldiers can prevent this apocalypse.

History

I started Dark Rising as a fun project. Something to test out some tower defense mechanics in Unity. I posted a demo onto GameJolt after only 2 weeks of development and received good feedback on the game. In order to fix some of the glaring errors on the game I released another patch and then later another one. At that point full development of Dark Rising had begun.

I started to expand the game and add in more features such as training pledges and equipping them with weapons. Soon I was building the Castle Editor and main menus as well. Development slowed as life got busy, but soon I was back to developing full time. A year and a half later and here we are.

Dark Rising will be releasing on the 13th of October.
