Shadowknight's Defense
is a dungeon defense game where you get to be the defender of evil, protecting your hoard of gold from those that seek it. You hire minions to bolster your defense; you summon the undead to vanquish your foes. Use sword, bow and magic to keep your treasures.

Mount a dynamic defense
Unlike traditional tower defense games, your minions can move. Don't like where that Orc warrior is positioned? Give that Orc orders to move to a different area. Did you place your Dark Elf wizard right in the path of a mob? Tell that wizard to get out of the way.

Paths change
Those pesky groups will change their assault path if and when they discover fighting in their way. Use that to your advantage! Don't want any groups to bypass your ambush site? Station some Goblin warriors to guard side passages. Or watch as the invaders flank your defense at the first sound of swords clashing.

Watch your gold and mana
You need gold to pay your minions; that same gold the invaders are seeking. Strike a balance between more defenders and more gold. You need mana for everything. Spend too much mana, and you have to wait for it to recharge. Spend all your mana, and you hold up your defense. Spend all your gold, and you lose.

Be tactical or strategic
Zoom out to watch how your defense is holding up. Or get up close to watch your individual minions battle the adventurers. Optimized 3D models mean a smooth experience whether you are close to the action or far above the dungeon.

Brownish monsters are hard to see against the brownish floor in the video. It needs more visual contrast to make it easier to spot monster types. Perhaps you could make different shaped coloured bases (other than circles already present) to help differentiate units at zoomed out level?

I feel like it needs more work... not saying it's not worth it, but it looks wayyyy too alpha right now.
