Casting a forbidden spell the young apprentice opened a dimension gate through which deadly monsters now enter our world. Can you team up with a cowardly goblin, a dreamy warlock and a self-proclaimed expert to be able to stop the creatures? Or more precisely: Are you ready for the next level of tower defense games?
Heart of the game are its three game modes which present completely different challenges to you:
This mode follows the classic rules of a tower defense game: Survive 60 enemy waves by building your towers at the strategically most convenient positions and strengthen your bastion using combinations of the seven elements.
No pause for breath: In Survival Mode, the enemy waves follow each other directly – and constantly confront you with enormous problems. Here all your skills are required from start to finish. How long are you able to withstand the monsters?
Only for real heroes: There are no limits in this mode. Each enemy has a unique ability that makes your life difficult – in return, you'll find powerful items to reinforce your towers.
Another two weeks have passed, so it's update time again!
We're still very busy with the multiplayer, but here are the most important changes in this version.
It is possible now to save every map in the game. Those saved maps can be edited (if you like to change paths), loaded and be played again. The editing has to be done in the map file for now, but I think we'll add a small path editor in the next updates. You can switch between the official maps and the mods in the level selection menu and each mod also has support for a complete leaderboard as the official maps have. In the next update(s) we're going to add a map sharing feature, so you can just upload your map and everybody else can play it as well.
Sometimes it was annoying in the higher waves to find the tower that contained a specific item you wanted to give to another tower or to see which towers you haven't upgraded yet. These informations now are displayed above each tower. Also the full utilization of status towers is displayed there. Additionally when hovering a tower or pressing left alt key, you'll see the level of the tower.
The multiplayer again made some really great progress. It's now possible to synchronize upgrades, selecting target and (little spoiler for the game mode we're working on) send monsters to the other team. It needs to be tested more and there are a lot of small things left to do, but I think we can start testing and improving the gameplay with 0.9.9.
For multiplayer the next steps are to synchronize some last stuff like some abilities (Hiker, Rainbow, rotation of Money tower...), lives (currently both teams share the same lives) and others.
Besides that we'll start working on the prorgess system. Each multiplayer match will give you some experience points that will increase your level at some point and for each level you can buy a skill to improve your offense or defense and individualize your tactics.
For singleplayer we'll improve the mod support by adding a map sharing functionality. This will work via our server and via Steam Workshop (for those using Steam). I'm not used to the Workshop yet, so I can't estimate if it will work until 0.9.9, but at least it's planned to get it into that update.
And for those of you that are alliance leaders we will introduce alliance flags that are somehow customizable. So you can select some patterns and colors. The flag will be shown in the leaderboards and maybe also ingame, at least in challenges. But the ingame part is a future step and won't make it into 0.9.9.
We hope you enjoy the new update and are looking forward to get your feedback, either here in the discussions or in our Discord at Discord.gg.
