New Game Update to Say "Thank You!

Posted by Hidden Path Entertainment, AMD & Razer (Creator)

We added one last ASCII minigame and two new contests as we wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your support towards Defense Grid 2.  To play DG2 Hero simply launch your copy of Defense Grid, let Steam update it, and press the "DG2 Contests" button.  If you haven't already entered your email address do so.  Then, use the arrow keys to go to the bottom of the page and choose Get 100000 pts on DG2 Hero, and you can then play the game.  We hope you have a lot of rhythm game text-based fun.

Thanks so much for your help getting us this far.  There are less than 24 hours left in the Kickstarter and then after the Kickstarter closes, we'll begin our journey together making DG:Containment for December and DG2 after that.

Thank you!

      Steam doesn't update DG and I don't see "Get 100000 pts on DG2 Hero"!?

      @Anna: you may have to restart the game to get music back after DG Hero. I had to abuse the audio engine to get the tracks to play and have tweakable volume (we never intended for more than one music-like track to be on at once).

      This is pretty cool. though when I stopped playing, the music broke and was gone through the entire game.

      You will get the full game - just not as quickly as we all would have liked. DG2 will come.

      Happy to see you hit your goal, sad we're not getting the "full game".

      Good luck!

      Put a minigame option there and then put a button aswell there on the side to go your paypal to preorder a basic copy of DG2.

      Well it past it target which is good to see. DG is still one of the best Tower Defence games I've played (along with Plants vs Zombies of course).

      And it will be nice to see the mini-games kept.

      Too bad it didn't get to $1,000,000.

      They won't disappear. We may change how you get to play them tho.

      I hope these minigames don't disappear after all the Kickstartin' is done. :D

      It's really been a great ride and I'm honored to be a part of this. I'm looking forward to being a part of helping to get DG2 made!

      Thaks for all the hard work on the minigames. I enjoyed them thoroughly. I finally completed Defensylvania just now - the vanishing platforms surly will haunt me in my dreams tonight. The DG2 Hero is a nice compensation and thankfully not that hard. :)

    15. Andy Parnham on

      Thanks HPE, we love you guys! :)

      Wonderful! Looking forward to playing the DG2 Hero minigame when I get a chance! Hopefully when you release Containment, you will start a second Kickstarter and use Containment as a way to advertize the Kickstarter to those who do not know about it.
      I want more Defense Grid!

      It's great that we at least made the 250k mark, and I'm really looking forward to DG Containment later this year, and DG2 as soon as it's possible :)
