A remake of the 2010 freeware release of Fortify. Fortify Special Edition is a real-time strategy game with a tower defense feel. Defend your castle from attacking monsters and siege weapons by using ranged and melee defenders, catapults, cannons, oil fields and more. You start at the Iron age and slowly advance to the Medieval Age and later the Imperial Age. Each age enables important upgrades and allows for new techniques to defend your castle. Multiplayer mode plays like the campaign, but instead of having enemies attack automatically, every monster that attacks you has been sent by your opponent and you must also attack them. The Special Edition includes - Real-time shadows based on time of day - Improved art - New interface - Save feature - Code optimization allowing for the new art and effects. - Multiplayer Player vs Player mode, tower defense style - Arcade mode: How long can you survive the attacks? - Achievements - Better implemented leaderboards And more

Post news RSS Fortify Special Edition - Multiplayer explained!

Fortify SE is approaching release! Currently the multiplayer mode is being implemented and balanced. This news post will explain how it will work.

Posted by on

Fortify is very near completion! Campaign and Arcade modes has been completed as well as a save/load feature. Final step is adding multiplayer!


Multiplayer mode will be played Player vs Player, both players will control a castle and some initial units. If you have played a Warcraft III map called "Line tower defense" the concept will sound familiar. The goal is to destroy the other players castle before your own is destroyed. Players can attack their opponents castle by sending enemies to their area. Sending enemies in this way will increase your "income". Income is a central part of the multiplayer experience. Every 20-30 seconds each player will receive gold equal to their income. Having a bigger income than your enemy can therefore be quite important, as it will allow you to send more units to them as well as improving your defenses and hiring your own defenders.


Rain weather and ambient sounds are some of the things that have been added recently.

In addition to the income, players will receive gold and resources just like they normally would, by killing enemies and gathering resources from the outposts. In multiplayer mode it will not be possible to repair your castle, this is to increase the speed of the games and stop games from becoming endless. Multiplayer will definitely work via LAN but Online should work if set up correctly. One player will Create a game, the other connects. The players are taken to a lobby where the rules of the game will be set, like starting, income, starting resources and win conditions.

Thanks!
