Have a question?
Just wanted to say I have just purchased the game on Steam. Congrats on pushing through even after the kickstarter didn't pan out and finishing your game.
I really mean it, great job guys!
it was a cool journey. backed and beta tested so :-) (archaonreich here) Good luck with your future projects
Sorry you guys didn't get funded. I look forward to your steam release.
I'm sorry guys. You did a great job. We really believed in you. Keep it up, consider a relaunch.
I'm very disappointed that this didn't get funded ☹ however, I too will be waiting for your steam debut and will excitedly purchase the game there!! Good luck guys! I'm so sorry this didn't work out grr 😣...
Thank you for your genuine, honest update! Regardless of what happens with this campaign, I WILL be buying this game. It's on my Steam wishlist and I'm looking forward to playing it.
@Andre sorry we have been really busy working on the game development. Just posted an update including what we have been trying so far, what has worked and what has not. Plus the development tasks we have finished since the last update and also listing the development tasks that remain.
Hi @Jared If you know of any YouTube or Twitch influencers please do refer them to https://www.keymailer.co/g/games/55801 and please drop us a note so that we know its a genuine request.
12 days to go... at least another 680 copies at $25 NZD a pop required to meet the goal. Only one update and no comments for almost two weeks. Maybe someone really wants a holiday to New Zealand?
You guys need more marketing or this isn't going to fund... Have you reached out to any popular YouTubers/Twitch streamers, etc?...
Excellent! I'm glad we can choose our pathing options within the game. Very nice. :)
Hi @some1 thank you so much for requesting us to add the question to our FAQ section, we have done this and look forward to having you on this journey with us. keep well and be happy always :-)
@ChillX Ltd: Will there also be a DRM free version (GOG, Humble) available? (This would be an useful entry in the FAQ section.)
@Kelson there are three forms of mazing. One is where the game levels have little or no pathing. The other is where the game levels have pathing defined with a multitude of path options and the player blocks paths to create the maze structure they want depending on the strategy they are using. The other is where we have pathing defined but also allow for a limited number of open areas where the player can define their own mazing if they want to.
We wanted to cater of both audiences. Therefore the player has the option of both. Minimal mazing through to maximum freehand mazing. And the player can choose their preference for each mission.
What we have built in Defense Task Force is the second two. the first starter game level has only two path options and if the player blocks the default path then creeps take the alternate path. The 7'th level has a large number of junctions where the player can divert the creeps path in a large multitude of different ways. The game levels beyond the 7'th level blueprint will include open areas combined with the above to allow the player to define their own mazing in those areas. However also something to note is that the missions themselves are modular. For each mission the player can pick the Blueprint (game level path options) that they want to use based on what they like the most. Minimal pathing / mazing options to maximum pathing / mazing options to maximum pathing / mazing options with open areas for freehand mazing.
Hope that answers the question. If you want to see an early game play video showing the first game level with only one pathing option please check out the early alpha gameplay video on our steam community page thats been posted by Lokken13.
Any further questions please do let us know. And thanks so much for everyones support and interest in our game :)
Cheers all the way from New Zealand :)
@creator Thank you! Are there maps where there is little or no pathing so you have to place towers to create a path for the creeps? If so, are these maps required?
@Kelson Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The maps are a hybrid that balances mazing with defined paths. If you do not deploy a tower obstructing the units path then this would be the same as a pre defined path. However if you do obstruct their path then path finding kicks in and the Alien unit creeps select the next best path. This way you can play the game whichever way you prefer.
Question: how many of the maps have defined paths for the aliens? I know I'm in the minority, but I prefer set paths or slightly customizable paths over open areas that you have to layout yourself. Thanks!
@John Wrot! Thanks so much for your support and everyones support. To answer your question. The game does have a campaign mode which is fully functional. Part of what we are seeking funds for is to make the campaign mode nicer. For example by adding voice overs and s few short cut scenes. The campaign is divided into 5 regions each containing 4 sectors to create a total of 20 missions. Each mission can be played in a number of different permutations using various blueprints (path layouts for the aliens).
AAAAnd just watched the video. A great story. That still means something to a lot of people.
Please create a campaign mode. I am not an "endless waves" guy, and based on the design of most successful TD games, others aren't either. I believe a campaign mode is required for this to be a huge success.
Did you say, Tower Defense? I'm all in.
Thanks for contacting me.

Wishing you the best of luck in achieving your dream.
@Kelson thank you so much for the encouragement. It means a lot especially in the early days of aiming to raise funds and I admire your zest and ability to enable many entrepreneurs through your approach. We are looking forward to having you as part of our family. Your support means a lot to us. Thank you
What a great story! I'm really hoping you do well with this campaign. I love TD games!
@hugo thank you so much for the encouragement and generosity for standing by us when we most need it. It means a lot and knowing you brings a smile on our face. Just got to know a little bit about you through Tikiri :-)
You can do it Tikiri and Zuricka! I believe in you both! You are such inspirations to this world! Follow your dreams!
@Remco Pullen thank you so much for being someone who supports our dream. I hope we hit our goal for sure. We don't have huge budgets for advertising and have gone through friends and family and social networks at this stage. Hopefully, the word spreads. We have come so far :-) Wishing you a lovely day and thank you once again.
I love TD games. This looks nice. I hope it goes well. :-) hope u advertized enough. so that ppl know that it is here.
