Coregrounds on Kickstarter
Coregrounds needs your help!

Coregrounds is on the final stretch towards the release version. But to create the completely updated graphics for this version, we need your help on Kickstarter[]. Check it out and back the project for exclusive rewards, you won't be able to get later, like an exclusive ingame color, just for you!

Thank you and see you on the Coregrounds!


Coregrounds is greenlit!
Release date: Q1 / 2017
Coregrounds is PVP tower defense done right: 2 players fight on 1 map using a unique arsenal of towers, minions and abilities. Improve your skills in this fast-paced and blissfully chaotic combat game and become the champion of the Coregrounds!

  • Tower defense gameplay revisited: two players fight on one map
  • Pick your towers, minions and abilities at the start of each match
  • Earn coins for each match
  • Unlock towers, minions, abilities and more with your coins
  • Play casual or ranked mode and climb the leaderboards
  • Improve your skill and widen your tactical horizon
  • Complete dozens of achievements
  • All content can be unlocked without spending a single penny
  • Nothing can be pourchased directly - purchasable boosts only increase the coin gains for each match

Don't want to wait until it's on Steam? Coregrounds is already playable in browser.[]

@Yoggi Vizulus [FFYG]: Thanks for your comment and your concern! This had me worried for a long time - but I think I've managed to build the game to be not prone to p2w.

First of all: coins cannot be purchased, but only earned by playing the game. You will be able to buy boosts so you get more coins for each match - but that is perfectly fine in my opinion. People who have to work all day and have more money than time should be able to progress just as well as someone who has a lot of time but no money to spend on games.

Secondly, the stuff you unlock with coins will not make you better - but give you more tactical choices; and to leverage the potential in these choices, you need skill - especially as all towers, minions and abilities are balanced to be more or less equivalent in terms of power.

Very Interesting, I like the idea of this pvp tower defense, but the only thing I fear is that it's p2w. Developer, PLEASE don't make it so that coins make you overpowered. Can you reassure to me that you will not make this a p2w game?
