Desura said Yes ! :)
Release date: Early access as soon as Greenlit :)
1. Build defenses.
2. Use them to fight aliens back !

This is the simpliest way to explain Xaniria - Defense of New Earth's concept.

But there is much more !

Xaniria - Defense of New Earth is the first game of a one-man studio, Hail to the Fun (please visit for more infos) .
It is a original mix between Tetris and tower-defense .

Please look at the first video to fully understand this 2-phases gameplay

Gameplay :
Xaniria great originality is being made of two distinct game phases:
- construction phase , where you command the defenses forge to build up the more defenses you can in a given time.
For that, you must fulfill specific patterns with rectangular metal pieces, coming in various sizes. Metals are extracted during fusion to form defense elements.
There are 9 different patterns for 9 defense types.

- combat phase , where previously built-up defenses assist you in the enemy push-back.
You pilot the central defense turret, on the top of the control center driving planetary terraforming.
To defeat the enemies hordes, you can't fire at them boldly, you will have to match your shot with the aimed enemy type to maximize damages.
Research lab will help you in your defense system enhancement, by increasing fire rate or damages as an example.
And special shot will allow you to decimate enemies ranks.
This won't be excessive versus 7 different enemy types, each one coming in 3 versions, more and more dangerous.

Xaniria - DONE includes 2 games modes:
- story mode , where constructive and combat phases intertwine through 70 levels.
Different defense and enemy types will reveal themselves slowly, your defenses will be stocked from one combat to the other, and research lab will grant you a needed power rise to drive the enemy back and defeat the 7 special end-level bosses, and maybe save Xaniria !

- arcade mode , where you can set the game you want up, in playtime, difficulty and variety.
No other constaint than those you choose, and ideal games to relax, train or challenge yourself !

Background :
In a not so distant future, Earth is not a wonderful blue jewel anymore, but a tormented planet with deregulated climate.
What remains of mankind decided to leave, as even the recent terraforming discovery couldn't make Earth habitable before milleniums.
After probing a great number of extra-solar planets, one was finally found with suitable conditions, Xaniria.
8 terraforming machineries were immediately sent to bring the needed changes for Xaniria to become favourable to humans, what would take decades.
A gigantic spaceship was built, the "Nest Departure", to slowly take survivors in cryogenic stasis to Xaniria.
Mankind left Earth with one hope, that "New Earth" would be ready upon its arrival.

You are part of the Artificial Intelligence system monitoring Xaniria terraforming.
There is a problem.
One of the 8 terraforming machineries was destroyed by what seems to be aliens invaders.
If only another comes to disappear, Xaniria won't be ready for the "Nest Departure" coming.
You will have to build defenses and push this invasion back, or mankind is doomed!

Xaniria - DONE also benefits from:
  • - 3 difficulty levels, so each gamer type can have fun,
  • - a semi-random enemy spawning system, so each game is unique and balanced.
  • - an 17 tracks OST, relaxing in constructive phase, more dynamic in combat phase.

Both phases, unfortunately, look quite boring, and the first phase looks less like a puzzle and more like arbitrary cramming junk into a box.

This is just a flash game and a normal tower defense game.

This is pretty much a retarded version of Tetris and Tower Defense games.
