Multiplayer coming soon!
Release date: First quarter 2016

Hero Defense - Haunted Island offers the player five unique heroes that battle their way through various arenas to defeat Count Necrosis.

In order to destroy the world’s most powerful vampire, a team of slayers must impale, slash, tear and burn through legions of undead hell-bent on world domination.

Hero Defense - Haunted Island challenges fans from MOBAs, RPGs and TD games to strategically manoeuvre their upgradeable heroes to destroy hordes of sinister creeps. Players customize their heroes through a deep RPG layer featuring upgradeable weapons and rich character skill trees.

A long lasting multiplayer experience gives enthusiasts the possibility to dominate the worldwide ladder for loot and precious runes.

  • Modify weapons by collecting and socketing powerful runes
  • Customize rune builds for devastating combos and skill-synergies
  • Build hero shrines to empower your characters during battle

  • Gain XP to access and level up each hero’s individual skill tree
  • Gather loot and equip spells that freeze, burn and poison the undead
  • Rebuild your town and unlock new buildings

  • Liberate your island, assemble your team and enjoy hours of a narrated story
  • Replay procedurally generated enemies and daily challenges
  • Succeed over bosses that possess special abilities

  • Kill creeps fast to punish the enemy in an innovative mix of MOBA and TD
  • Battle other players in ranked or unranked matches
  • Defeat opponents with strategies or brute force to earn unique runes

How long is Hero Defense – Haunted Island in development?
We started working on the concept five years ago and the actual game has been in development for three years now. It was signed by a publisher, however, it’ll be self-published by Happy Tuesday now. Team size started with four people and went up to more than 30 people during the main production.

Is the game playable already?
Yes, and if you are curious, you can sign up here

Will you go into Early Access or launch straight on Steam after Greenlight?
The game will be launched as Early Access after the Steam Greenlight. The focus of Early Access will be balancing the already content complete campaign and fleshing out the multiplayer concept. Once we are happy with the balancing of the campaign and once we have a unique fun-to-play multiplayer mode, we will launch the game.

When do you plan to go into Early Access?
As soon as we have a Greenlight and after we are sober from the Christmas festivities.

Do you have plans for additional content?
Yes, but we are currently head over heels finishing the build for Early Access.

What about multiplatform?
Steam and the PC community is first priority. However, Hero Defense is developed in Unity and we can adapt it to other platforms as well. Since the game is easy to learn and hard to master, we have internally lots of fun with running and playing the game on other platforms as well.

What is your business model?
The game will be premium on PC. Fullstop. You will get all the content for a small price that we haven’t defined yet.

Can I help to make the game more awesome?
Yes, play the game, be engaged in the forums, talk about us on facebook and twitter and simply give feedback on everything you like or dislike.
