What is this game?
Released October 19th, 2011, Dungeon Defenders is a cooperative, action role-playing tower defense game. You'll take the role of one of a team of four(Or more!) heroes defending an Eternia Crystal from waves of monsters. The basic premise of the game is kill waves of monsters with towers, traps, auras, and weapons, get experience and loot, level up your character, level up/trade your character's weapons and familiars, and fight harder monsters in harder dungeons for more experience and better weapons.

TotalBiscuit has an hour long "WTF is... Dungeon Defenders?" review on YouTube:


What's the story?
Long Ago, Etheria was once a land of living legends… Throughout the ages, brave warriors across the realm stood together against the forces of evil, led by immortal beings known as the Old Ones… After a titanic struggle, these champions locked away the power of the Old Ones, inside Eternia Crystals…These legendary heroes have recently left their younger kin in charge of the common castle chores… Bored with their dreary duties, the inexperienced pupils decide to play… And accidentally unleash an ancient force that has long been dormant!

    So I have this on the iPad and beat the first "Level" (Group of four or so levels, broken up between build and attack phases).

    I am loving it - wish you could zoom out further though to get a better idea of what was happening. Also it's easy to get turned around on the iPad version and not know where you are.

    I am def. getting this on the PS3... I think my wife and her group of friends are going to latch onto this like the Puzzle Quest addiction that hit a few years ago.

    It really is an awesome mix of TD and button masher rpg.

    Yeah, I linked to the official "Game is delayed thread" in the OP. Though Trendy didn't outright state it, the consensus is Microsoft, probably because of their game approval process, won't let DD be released until mid-January and requires a simultaneous launch with PS3/PC versions to be on the 360 at all.

    Yes, 4-player split screen on the 360, PC, and PS3. Though no split screen on the mobile devices, obviously.

    The video demonstrating the cross-platform gaming has been pulled because there it showed a yet-unreleased Tegra 2 device. Nice. Now I gotta remove that from the OP.

    Also, there's a thread on the confirmed changes coming in the Android build on the 23rd and in a patch for the iOS build on Jan. 2nd:
    Raised Max Item level to 15, and Max Hero Level to 70
    *Eliminated low cap on Speed stat and changed how the results of this stat are calculated
    *INSANE Difficulty is much, much harder (and so is HARD)... good luck
    *Rebalanced item drops to make super items harder to get
    *Fixed some levelling & item farming exploits
    *Adding GameSpy for multi-platform iOS-Android gameplay! And PC gameplay with Dungeon Defenders when that product launches. GameSpy supports Private Matches, Game Naming, Game Browsing, and an array of search filters.
    *GameCenter support for private matches, and fixes for Inviting
    *Better voice chat stability
    *Many GameCenter & iOS crashes eliminated
    *iOS 4.1 support
    *Various new item drop types
    *Big performance boost due to media optimization, and some code optimization
    *Various gameplay tweaks for a better balance
    *New Tutorial video explains the game in a minute, by default replacing the former interactive tutorial (though that's left in as an option)
    *Performance scaling option for iOS, user can now reduce resolution and detail to further increase performance even more as they see fit
    *Replaced on-screen Pause button with Character button which allows fast-healing, moved Pause button into character submenu
    *Rebalanced item value ramp so that super-items don't sell for ridiculous amounts
    *A brand new Campaign level & Challenge mission created specifically for high-level hero teams... because we appreciate the support of you hardcore defenders
    * Lots of minor bug fixes and game tweaks too numerous to list here... (among the many, Targeting Dummies now print DPS as you're attacking them)
    * Familiars re-added to iOS version
    ** Items now have a level requirement based on their quality, and also tell you which class is necessary to use them in the popup overlay

    Updated the OP, including info on split-screen, patch notes, and a link to the Trendy Entertainment YouTube channel with 6 total DD videos.

    Finally!

    Quality games that doesn't require a multi-million dollar budget to make! Quality games at bargain prices!

    Hopefully this'll be the sign of a new era of gaming!

    Though, it would be awesome if they can get this cross platform technology to work with stuff like MMO's and what not. Maybe play the 'real' mmo on the PC, and play mini games that'll contribute towards the 'real' mmo.

    Hell, this can lead towards an immense amount of innovation. Fucking .Hack might become real....
