AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND JAN 31, 2018 (30 Jan 2018 GMT / EST) — Defense Task Force launches on Kickstarter to fund the final stages of the game. The full version of the game will be available for release mid 2018 on Steam. Defense Task Force pushes the boundaries of the Tower Defense genre in terms of depth of strategy while bringing in the graphics and visual quality of first person shooter games into the genre.
The game is staged on a beautifully rendered planet with dynamic procedurally generated scenery. Many elements of the game including the enemy waves are generated procedurally offering a unique experience each game. Rather than a single master solution to each game level there are a whole multitude of possibilities. Instead of a linear 20 mission campaign, each mission is in part designed by the players choice of planet region, sector, and game level layout. Additionally a tech research tree provides an opportunity for the player to develop even more strategies as they progress through the game.
Defense Task Force features:
– 25 different types of enemy units versus 10 types of towers deployed by the player.
– Each tower features completely different attack behaviors,3 upgrade levels and individual attribute boosts.
– The player needs to invest their rewards from winning each game level into researching a deep technology tree to unlock these before they may be used in game. The choice of which technology to research has a direct impact on the strategy options available to the player.
– Great care is being taken with respect to game balancing such that there is no single super tower.
the attack behavior of the ten tower types are both different and complementary to each other.
Two game modes normal mode and infinite mode will be available to the player. In normal mode the player needs to survive a predefined number of waves. In infinite mode the challenge for the player is to survive as many waves as possible.
In order to emphasis the in game graphics quality both gameplay trailers were created using the actual game engine. You could check the story of how these guys began through humble beginnings
