Chilean game developer Syrenaica announces the launch of its first title: "Evilot" , now on Desktop flavors, starting with the Windows version, and choosing Desura as the right partner for distribution.

Combining the best elements of two popular genres, Evilot is a puzzle defense game where players command the forces of Count Dolfus, a retired evil mastermind whose brooding Golden Years are being disturbed by an army of do-gooders bent on conquering his castle (and stealing all his loot). Funded partially through Kickstarter, the title's orchestral score sets a mood suitable for a Transylvanian invasion.

Accessible to even casual players, Evilot's 50 levels are set up on a grid with the forces of Dolfus defending against baddies (err... goodies?), who race down lanes toward mountains of hard-earned treasure. Gameplay goes beyond the traditional "set it and forget it" tower defense mechanic, adding a puzzle-based unit upgrade system. Place three of the same units together in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. It's a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master.

Evilot features:
· Unique puzzle defense mechanics and level-up system
· Challenging, fast-paced gameplay
· 50 levels across 5 diverse territories
· 15 playable defender units and 5 special summons
· Original orchestral soundtrack specially composed for Evilot

Kotaku says: "Chilean developer Syrenaica's Evilot may look a lot like Plants Vs. Zombies, with the whole lane-based defense thing, but it's significantly more than that. It's an evolution. "

Evilot was first launched on iOS, with an Android version coming soon. However, Evilot was originally written for desktop machines (Windows, Linux) and then successfully ported to mobiles.

Evilot for Windows will be released on June21st 2013.
