New Tower Defense / RPG hybrid Defender’s Quest for Mac, Windows, and Linux!


Playable demo:

In the midst of a devastating epidemic, a young woman finds herself unceremoniously dumped into a plague colony full of monsters. Discovering a strange “half-way world” between life and death, she proceeds to gather a small army of disaffected survivors and sets off in hope of escape!

Defender’s Quest is a unique blend of real-time Tower Defense strategy and tactical RPG meta-game, complete with a colorful cast of characters and fast-paced story-telling.

This game respects your time. Play through the game’s “casual” missions for a quick 2-5 hour experience, or hunker down and take on “advanced” and “extreme” missions for the hardcore 30+ hour experience you crave.
