      I'd be interested in seeing a Totem Tower which consists of 4 tower parts which allow it to be effective in a small space against all types of units (if that was your choice),

      Short range, low power. The first placement is a mini version of all the other towers, so you could choose the gun tower for the bottom, whatever you need first.

      Then the second upgrade could be the flame thrower and etc... so you eventually have this 4 stack tower shooting lasers and fire and cannons at nearby enemies.

      The trade off should be it's weak but effective against everything if your short on space, however if you pile up 4 flamer towers then it's cheaper then a level 2 flamer, longer to build and you can't upgrade it afterwards.

      I loved absolutely loved everything I heard. Everything. Especially the boost tower. Tweaking the tower functions and stats? Just wow. This really sounds like an awesome sequel.

      I recently restarted the DG campaign (Steam Cards appeal to my inner OCD) so this is welcome update!

      Great update! Especially since I started played through some Defense Grid these past few days to beat my friend's high score on some levels. Cannot wait to hear more about DG2!
