    I am excited for this game!

    Had no idea it was cross platform, nor did I know it lacked PvP. Still excited!

    Do we know how many players it supports?

    From 1 to 4. So it's possible to have up to 3 of your friends playing with you.

    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.

    It's a pity this game didn't arrive on time for the sales. But anyway this way we will be able to give it the attention it deserves later next year.

    I am way hyped for this but retailer specific familiars that are PC only anyway really kills my enthusiasm.

    $10? Eh I'll probably get it. Not a fan of the graphic style, but whatevers. Might get it for the droid (evo 4g) just to see how it'd play on a phone.

    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.

    This sounds like a mix of Diablo 2 and Tower Defense. Is that pretty accurate?

    I would say from my brief play of both more like Castle Crashers meets the weapons/equipment stats and simplicity of Puzzle Quest 2 meets tower defense.

    I'm not really happy with how the camera is in this game. It doesn't seem like there's any way to make it zoom out a bit more.

    Let's hope it gets patched in. Seems simple enough.

    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....

    Dear indie game designers,

    KEEP THE FUCKING CAMERA POINTING AT THE SAME DAMN ANGLE IF YOU"RE GOING TO USE ISOMETRIC VIEWPOINT!

    There is no reason why I keep getting lost like this....

    I mean, holy shit, the camera rotates around the character like no others business.

    Huh? I like monk. What's wrong with it?

    Mainly he has infinite firebolts and a strong ass melee. Melee the wimps, and kite firebolt the big guys. Lighting aura near a squire's anything for a lot of killing
