Defender’s Quest is my favourite tower defence game. The designers managed to combine the basic idea of positioning units on a series of paths with RPG upgrade systems without botching the balance of the entire campaign, or limiting player choice. It’s a quietly brilliant piece of work and news of a sequel is most welcome. Level Up Labs are taking preorders for Defender’s Quest II: Mists of Ruin now, with Kickstarter style reward tiers. I’d never suggest that anyone preorder anything that isn’t in extremely limited supply but $15 will secure a copy of the sequel on release and a copy of the original game right now. If you haven’t played it already, that’s worth considering. There’s even an online demo of the first game. Teaser trailer beyond the ramparts.
