Yrminsul Steam Group - Giveaway!
Yrminsul is Released - Linux Support - Greenlight Bundle - Giveway
Release date: April 2014

Have you had enough of nice and friendly heroes? Then become the villain of the piece! Get your own back on the pathetic forces of the good and make them finally understand that evil is something to be taken seriously, and must be well done. Resist their combined attacks during a game combining strategy and Tower Defense phases in a persistent universe. Make their islands, which make up this boring haven of peace, fall one by one. Evil spirits, boastfulness and a tendancy towards machievelic laughter will finally be rewarded through a title which renews the codes of the genre.


YRMINSUL is a strategy game in a persistent universe where each combat is held in the form of a Tower Defence. Crush the forces of good!

Tower Defense:
You love the frenzy of the tower defenses? Yrminsul is a fast paced tower defense in full 3D with a lot of content: +30 enemies, three types of enemy armies (Goblins, Monsters and Elves), 15 upgradable turrets, 16 spells and +30 levels with unique moods and design...

Before each attack, you have to choose carefully 4 turrets and 4 spells to use while defending. Knowing the enemies' strenght is important as you can go for single target damage or area of effect havoc; magic or physic damage; slow, stuns and other forms or control... Each army attacking you has its own strenghts and weaknesses, you have to know them to succeed!

Choose carefully which Island to invade, spy on the enemy to evaluate his forces. In Yrminsul, your opponents try to reclaim the islands you control. You will have to defend your territory from your enemies' sneaky attacks. At the same time, you will invade their Islands. You can go back and forth between the islands because the universe is persistent: when you build a turret, it will stay on its island unless the enemies gain control of the island.

Resource management:
In Yrminsul, you have to manage one main resource: Infamy. The infamy is your potential evilness and allows you to build defenses, to research new towers and spells, to spy on your enemies.... You have to manage carefully your infamy because you need to unlock new powers to face the strongest enemies. But doing so, would you have sufficient resources to defend your territory?

Universe and backstory:
As a RTS campaign, Yrminsul has a storyline and a universe you can explore. Each of the +30 levels has its own details and secrets, and more than 10 interactive comics unveil the story of Yrminsul!

  • +30 unique levels
  • +30 different enemies
  • 15 towers
  • 16 spells
  • A huge campaign
  • 100 ulockable interactive comic pages

My bad folks, I'll try to post news asap, I've been a bit overwhelmed this year and Yrminsul's release got really late. Stay connected on FB or twitter and thanks for your interest in Yrminsul!

So cool

I love the variety of levels. My only comment to you is that your graphic design (logo, menu's, etc) don't seem to have the same level of care given to them as your levels do. Your game levels, video, and screen shots look magnificent but some people may be discouraged to look further when the first image they see doesn't have the same care and attention to detail. Yes vote from me, I definitely want to see what you're capable with this game. Best of luck on your Greenlight.

Hello, My name is Ian Boswell, I have voted "Yes" on this game- Now that I have your attention I strongly urge you click on this link: as I have made a video specifically JUST FOR YOU, Black Flag.

I have been through the Greenlight Process and have a game on steam and I want to lay down some down-to-earth advice.
