Description

Defender's Quest is a story-driven Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid where unique, persistent, party members take on the role of "towers." It focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles.

The battle system merges the tactical gameplay of tower defense with the long-term strategy, customization, and party management of a traditional RPG. Each character levels-up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued while the game is paused.

It also features an engaging, character-driven story written by an actual English major! The story strives to be fast-paced, snappy, and always relevant to gameplay with minimal exposition. Finally, it's got options and accessibility settings out the wazoo, so that you can have the best possible experience!

Defender's Quest DX is a huge free update to the original game, featuring all-new HD graphics and expanded story content!
