All The World Is Green: Orcs Must Die Trailer

What are you doing?! That's an endangered specie-- wait, sorry, I'm thinking of orcas.

Great as it is, Sanctum isn’t going to be the only action tower defense title that we’ll be gifted with this year. Orcs Must Die is arriving this summer, and is looking like a neat counterpart- dark and dingy where Sanctum was bright and shiny, and slapstick where Sanctum was all business. Our Dan Griliopolous made it sound fun enough in his preview, too, and the new trailer features exploding barrels, which as we all know is basically a seal of quality.

I actually have a plan regarding explosives barrels. If I ever make a video game I’m putting a single red barrel in it. If the game doesn’t feature guns, I will also place the game’s one and only gun next to the barrel. The moment the player shoots that barrel, their character will explode. That’s my plan.

    For a second I thought this was a reference to Charlie Sheen’s cooking video.

    Obligatory link to the referenced song:

      Obligatory link to song I will be listening to as I play this game.

      There’s another version somewhere, I can’t find it though.

    All the world is teal/orange, rather.

    This looks absolutely ace, and I’ve never played a tower defence game in my life, aside from a couple of flash ones. I remember reading something about the devs having a one-Liner competition for this game, but I might just have hit my head.

    if i hadnt read the preview before viewing the trailer i would have no interest in this game. Trailer did not impress

  7. Schteen says:

    That little clip didn’t show a whole lot, but I do like the way you apparently interact directly with the props you place, rather than in Sanctum where you build the towers and let them do their job. Taking the hybridity of the genre one step further, might be worth keeping an eye on.

  8. Mr_Initials says:

    So what the game is saying is the crossbow is only useful for shooting barrels and useless for killing things.

    Another DTTD game? Well the’ve got my attention (and money probably).

    Why all the hate for orcs? Must they ALL die? Haven’t we learned anything from GTA’s “Kill all Haitians”? Fight prejudices, adopt an orc today! link to

    Am I the only one thinking that it’s stupid to play an advert before a trailer ? “This Orks Must Die ad is brought to you by Coca Cola”
