Berlin-based indie developer Happy Tuesday is looking forward to celebrating a very happy day, indeed: its unique Tower-Defense Action-RPG mix, Hero Defense – Haunted Island, enters Steam’s Early Access program today and is now available for PC gamers world-wide (http://store.steampowered.com/app/423620/)!
Hero Defense – Haunted Island puts players in control of a team of five monster slayers, who battle their way through challenging arenas to defeat none other than the world’s most powerful vampire, the evil Count Necrosis. They impale, slash, tear and burn through legions of the undead, hell-bent on world domination. But that’s not all – countless bosses with unique abilities await players on their journey. By defeating the evil, players help restoring the places Count Necrosis destroyed. They free and help villagers, meet new allies – and enjoy a rich, yet satiric, story that guides them through the game.
Hero Defense – Haunted Island challenges Tower-Defense, MOBA and RPG enthusiasts by offering a gameplay mix of all these genres. Players strategically manoeuvre their upgradeable heroes to destroy hordes of sinister creeps. A deep RPG layer allows customization of each hero and features upgradeable weapons as well as character skill trees. Within the world of Hero Defense – Haunted Island, players loot, collect and merge runes to access new skills. Procedurally generated enemies and daily challenges guarantee a gigantic replay value.
In multiplayer mode, which will be available briefly after the start of Early Access, players will be able to take part in ranked and unranked matches, using clever strategies or brute force to succeed and earn epic runes.
While Hero Defense – Haunted Island is available in Steam’s Early Access program, players can enjoy hours of a narrated story campaign. It is Happy Tuesday’s goal to work closely with the community to improve Hero Defense – Haunted Island based on players’ feedback, and overall raise the quality bar for all future tower defense games. Main development focus of the Early Access will be the multiplayer. Feedback can be given on Steam or in the official forum (http://hero-defense.com/blog/).
