Rise Together

Build an army and escape from The Pit!

Defender's Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense). It focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles.

The battle system builds off of tower defense, with individual characters taking the place of towers. Each character levels up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. The overall game structure is similar to tactical RPGs, but with a real-time battle system. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued when the game is paused.

It also features an engaging character-driven story written by an actual English major! The story strives to be fast-paced, snappy, and always relevant to gameplay with minimal exposition. The young royal Librarian, Azra, finds herself unceremoniously left for dead and dumped into a plague colony. She puts together a ragtag band of survivors and miscreants, and sets off in hope of finding an escape, only to be pursued by a mysterious man dressed in red.

Finally, Defender's Quest has options and accessibility settings out the wazoo, so you can have the best possible experience!



Caught between life and death

The plague swept through the Ash kingdom and carried Azra away with it. One day she was the royal librarian, the next a near-lifeless body flung into "The Pit." She awoke to waking dreams of a strange, golden man. In the midst of these visions, Azra discovered that she -- and only she -- could walk the "half-way world" perched between life and death, and from there strike fatal blows against the immortal ghouls that stalked every corner of The Pit.




Customization out the wazoo

Unlike other tower-defense games, Defender's Quest is a full-fledged RPG where each character is unique and customizable. Characters from the same class can be set to very different purposes with just a few skill and gear changes.

Full tactical control

Want to target the strongest enemies, but avoid the ones likely to dodge your attacks, and make sure to spread out your status-effect debuffs? Not only can you do that, but our battle interface makes it easy and clear! 

Play it your way

Want to sink dozens and dozens of hours into hardcore battles? Want to breeze through in an afternoon just to see the story? Layered challenges make it easy to find just the right mix for you.
