It's finally here. For more than a year, I've been working with a small team of people on Element TD II. If you are not aware, Element-TD is a custom mod for Warcraft-3, StartCraft-2 and Dota-2. It has been around for a while. I even have a hand in the mobile version.
It's basically a tower defense game where you unlock elements and combine them to build various towers, each with a unique ability. There are 6 elements and each tower can take a combination of up to 3 elements. So there are a lot of different towers with different abilities. The game can be played in solo or competitive multiplayer mode.
In solo play, it's a challenging survival-based TD game. In multiplayer though, it's a different beast entirely. Spawning of a new wave starts as soon as the first player cleared the last wave. So the goal is to clear the wave as quickly as possible to start the new wave, rushing other players. It's pretty fast-paced and it gets chaotic very quickly
Anyway, we decided to remake Element-TD as a stand-alone game. We design and create (most of) the assets from scratch, redesign some of the gameplay element and added more content like maps and single player challenge. I'm quite proud of what we have come up with. I've put a lot of hours into it and It's looking quite good if you ask me. I should point out that I responsible for coding the UI and gameplay. I might have some input on the general design decision, network coding, visual, audio, etc. (that's usually what happen when working with a very small team) but other team member has certainly deserved more credit to those.
Element-TD II is now available on Steam. Here's the link so go check it out. Your support is much appreciated!
Finally, I'll leave you with the trailer. Enjoy!
