We've been hard at work on Shepherds of the Abyss - a multiplayer tower defense game. We've come a long way since our initial Greenlight video, and have released a new video to show all of the improvements and progress in development.
One of the major features we reveal in the latest video are the Shepherds, which are powerful hero units that have high health pools and ability kits that include passive abilities, active abilities, and ultimate abilities. Each Shepherd earns experience through skillful use of their abilities, and upon leveling up, is provided with 1 ability point that you can use to unlock or upgrade an ability. Unlocking a Shepherd also unlocks two tower types - one defensive tower (that fires at enemies) and one upgrade to the Mana Tower to give you a new spell on defense.
Multiple Shepherds can be unlocked, so mix-and-match them to create powerful synergies to defend yourself, or to weave incredible offensive ability combinations to crush your opponent's defenses.
