(Demo version) Tactical depth, engaging story, colorful characters, and lots of customization!

Each character levels up individually and learn skills over time, and you can "boost" them in battle to access their high-level skills. Additionally, you can buy equipment to outfit your party.
Follow Azra and her motley crew of plague survivors as they fight their way out of the "The Pit!"

Check out the OPTIONS menu, especially if you hate reading. OPTIONS->MISC->turn tuts/dialog OFF.
Controls are 100% customizable, you can play the whole game from the keyboard if you want.

We want to be completely up-front with you that this is a DEMO. It's pretty long as far as demos go - there's no timer, you've got about 1-4 hours of gameplay here, and you can play each of the battles on advanced and extreme difficulties for even more content.

This version of the game contains the first two of seven acts. The FULL game has 6 character classes, 7 acts, 34 maps, tons of great music, lots of new items, uncompressed graphics, ~100 challenges, an endless mode, and lots of other goodness. The coupon code "NGROUND" is good for $2 off, making the game just $5 until February 14th.

Full version playtime varies depending on your hard-coreness. So far I've seen people breeze through casual in 5 hours, but completionists who go after every advanced/extreme mission are clocking in around 20-30 hours.

You can export your save file from the demo and import into the full version so you don't lose any progress.

Here's some reviews of the full version to help you decide:

Rock, Paper, Shotgun:

The full version runs on Mac/Windows/Linux, and comes with NO DRM, because DRM is for tools! You will get FREE updates to future versions of the game and believe me, we have even more cool features planned than what's already in the full version :) We also pride ourselves on good customer support so please visit:

if you have ANY trouble and we will make it right!

We hope you like this demo, and hope we've given you everything you need to decide whether the full version is worth your time.

Fun and captivating!

This game deserves amazing success! It blends flawlessly the two genres, taking using very best from both. The story itself compelled me as well. It especially surprised me how it was meshed with the tutorial in the beginning of the game, it kept me super-interested while doing an otherwise boring part in games.

Will buy and recommend.

A GOOD GAME!THE STORY IS GOOD BUT I THINK THE SOUND AND THE GRAPHIC OF GAME IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE THIS GAME BECOME A GREAT GAME.

Definitely a fun time!

It's quite a solid tower defense, mechanically. And I'm 100% in favor of supporting indie game developers. I bought it, the play was good enough and judging by the size of the map I'll easily get my time's worth.

That said, I have to wonder if all aspects of the game are up to the challenge of attracting buyers. AT $5 with the Newgrounds coupon, I had no problem steping up. When the price goes up to $10 later, I'm not sure I'd feel the same. The art in the full version is crisper than in the demo to be sure, but I've played a good number of free games that brought better to the table, many of which on this very site. There is also a huge selection of similarly priced games that far outshine this one in appearance as well. The same applies to the lack of voice acting.
Speaking of voice and audio, I do enjoy all the music I've heard so far, you made some good selections. However there are a few sound effects (From the healers, notably) that are rather hard on the ears, in my opinion. I know there's an option to soften/mute sound effects, but I do enjoy having the other sounds.
I can't say I know how much time, money, and effort would be required to improve these aspects, as I've never developed a game myself. But on the player's end I know there are many products which do deliver it.

Don't take this to mean it's not worth buying, though! Play the demo! If you enjoy it, I encourage you to support the developers and drop a couple bucks on the full version. There's quite a lot more here to enjoy if you got a taste for it from the demo.

We've been absolutely floored by the sales, so we will definitely be looking to polish up some audio/visuals on the next version. It'll be a little while before the "gold" version goes up - we're not the fastest programmers :P

We will absolutely take all this great feedback into account, we want to make the bonus version (which all purchasers get a free upgrade too) as awesome as possible.
