Dungeon Defenders 2 launches out of early access

After two-and-a-half years in early access, free-to-play tower defense action-RPG Dungeon Defenders 2 [official site] has launched in full. If you want to fend off monsters with towers while scampering about murdering them yourself, swing by Steam and get to it. Given that free-to-play games rely on a steady flow of updates anyway -- and more are certainly planned for Dungeon Defenders 2 -- what's…

ARK: Survival Evolved Encounters Legal Troubles

Dino survival game ARK: Survival Evolved [official site] has been a huge success for developers Studio Wildcard but clouds are gathering and those clouds look an awful lot like lawyers. Issues surrounding the game's origins and the soliciting of staff from Dungeon Defenders creators Trendy Entertainment will be heard in court next month, report Kotaku. If the outcome of that hearing grants the injunction sought…

Dungeon Defenders 2 Not Actually A MOBA

In a move that I suspect will seem wise in hindsight, Dungeon Defenders 2 is not going to be a MOBA, despite initial glowing neon signposts in that direction. In a big old blog post on the game's site, Trendy's Dave Loyd talks about what it's actually going to be, sort of: "Originally it was being developed as a MOBA-style PVP game, but we reviewed…

Hark! Dungeon Defenders 2’s Co-Op In Action

Defending dungeons, I imagine, is quite difficult - especially when you're chasing down other heroes, steamrolling over all their favorite toys, and not really defending many dungeons at all. That's the basis of Dungeon Defenders 2's competitive MOBA mode, and naturally, it strays a bit from the original's adowwwwwable approach to gut-wrenching, mud-and-blood-spattered last stands. And yet, in spite of a hilariously suggestive name, Trendy…

Dungeon Defenders 2: A Gentler, More Persistent MOBA

Though valiantly working to improve, MOBAs can still be quite mean. The original Dungeon Defenders, meanwhile, was the cutest, nicest, most snuggably soft action-tower-defender out there. So naturally, Trendy's decided to mash up its two great loves, in much the same way one "naturally" leaves their squalling infant at a daycare center run by salivating rhinocobears. And yet, the original Dungeon Defenders was deceptively complex,…

Dungeon Defenders Delves DLC (For Free)

Yes, it's one of those things where they add stuff to a game for free! We used to call them patches, but now we call them free DLC, at least when they have content and not just fixes in. A subtle distinction, don't you think? Anyway, Dungeon Defenders, the excellent FPS tower defence, is getting one of them. Actually I read wrong, it has got…

The Festive Four: Dungeon Defenders DLC

Google just told me that today is Thanksgiving for our North American chums, so presumably they get to stay off work, avoid their families and play games all day. In keeping with the spirit of the occasion, Dungeon Defenders is receiving three new chunks of DLC, the first of which is a thematic exploration of the ancient American tradition of gratefully devouring turkeys. It's a…

Dungeon Defenders Dev Kit Released

Adorable, colourful and surprisingly hefty, Dungeon Defenders action-orientated take on tower defense was like an unexpected rainbow preceded by the light drizzle of a delayed PC incarnation. However, the release of the development kit could be the pot of gold at the end of that rainbow and it's a pot of gold radiant enough to actually dry any remaining bitterness out of your sodden clothing.…

Feature: Orcs Must Dye

Dungeon Defenders review

The tower defence genre seems to be filling out a bit now. Not in a bad way. It's not getting flabby or anything. Perhaps more cuddly, at least if Orcs Must Die and Dungeon Defenders are anything to go by. Dungeon Defenders in particular is super delightful to the point of being saccharine. As violent as the theme is - murdering convoys of fantasy creatures…

Playing For Keeps: Dungeon Defenders

Diablo 3 wasn’t quite as shiny and pony-strewn as some people were expecting, so it’s making this place seem a little grim and gothic at the moment. Time for something incredibly colourful and chaotic. So here are two developer diaries for upcoming 4 player co-op tower defence action RPG Dungeon Defenders. Not my description, but the description of developers Trendy Entertainment. There’s a LOT going…

Post-NATAL: Motion-Sensing PC Games

Standard webcam + standard PC = full-body, real-time motion sensing browser game developed from military research. That's the plan behind TrendyEntertainment's VisionPlay, anyway. It claims to know where your heard, arms, legs and torso (AND NO MORE, filth-mongers) are, and maps them to in-game actions. So, in theory it's like Microsoft's Project Natal - the difference being it's not supported by high-budget games in which…

Unreally Free: Dungeon Defense

One of the now free-to-use Unreal Development Kit showcase games is a cute-looking fantasy tower defence game called Dungeon Defense. It's "a Tower Defense / Action RPG hybrid created entirely within the UDK in just four weeks," by developers Trendy Entertainment. Apparently it supports four players, and offers a fairly typical tower defence experience, as you defend the dungeon from hundreds of invading monsters. It's…
