The end of the tunnel
Hi there defenders!!

Thanks a lot to everyone for your comments, critics and support. We've been working non-stop to make this looks great and to introduce a lot of cool new features for you to enjoy.

So we're very happy to announce that we have a 80% of the development done so we're really close to complete the game.

Check out a few screenshots of the actual look of the game:

Thanks everyone!!

2.5D is going smooth!
Release date: September 2012, available on XBLIG and Desura
Defenders of the Last Colony is a 2D Shooter with Strategy gameplay mechanics, where you have to protect the Colony's core while you gather resources and build defenses. You play as one of the 2 classes: Fighter or Engineer. Fighters focus on gun power while Engineers can build more structures (like turrets, repair platforms...). The game is coop up to 4 players.

Besides is strategy component DOTLC is a fast paced arcade with lots of content to unlock, like retro modes, challenges and awards.
This is what is already in the game, but, of course, the more support and users base the game gets the more stuff we'll add.
  • 4 pilots
  • 2 ship classes
  • 12 worlds to explore
  • 3 retro modes
  • 30 challenges
  • 15 awards
  • Cooperative gameplay
  • Survival mode
  • HD graphics
So, if we get to Steam, we'll add a bigger campaign, online Vs and Co-op and some extra retro modes.


The Starians came from nowhere, decimating the colonies as they passed.

Only one colony survived, carrying four prototype ships they are travelling to save what it's left of the other colonies, and taking as many Starians as they can on their way.
