[RELEASED]Defend or Die! - 2112TD Now Available on Android and iOS

**** Updated for release!****
DEFEND OR DIE – 2112TD OUT NOW
PREPARE YOUR DEFENCES AND GET READY FOR THE ONSLAUGHT

Indie developer studio Refinery Productions today announced the release of their first IP 2112TD, a sci-fi tower defense game which is now available on Android & iOS.


Set 100 years in the future, players must battle inter-dimensional flesh spawn across the solar system and defend Earth's colonies from complete annihilation.

The pace is steady, but the stakes are high as the relentless hordes amass in an effort to overrun the player’s mobile command centre.

Unlike traditional games in the genre, the player will be relying heavily on micro-managing dynamic action-based abilities. As they progress deeper into the campaign airstrikes, charged attacks, fortification walls and the tactical drone will become increasingly vital and deploying them strategically will be paramount.

Mistakes won’t go unpunished so the player must stay frosty, learn from their blunders and endure to fight another day. Without pain there can be no gain!

Throughout development, Immersion has always been at the top of the team’s priority list. Every feature and mechanic was conceptualized with the intention of keeping the player fully engaged in the battlefield.

The audio and graphics have all been built from the ground up, handcrafted by the art team to capture the games aesthetic and setting. The artistic style of 2112TD will induce intense hits of nostalgia into the minds of veteran RTS players of the 90s and early 2000s.

2112TD contains no pay to win features. The base cost provides full access to all of the games contents with no in-app purchases or advertisements that break the player’s immersion.

RESEARCH TO VICTORY

We've got some new eye candy!

The Thinker model finished!

And the Goliath is on its way!

It looks nice. Please add more ingame scenes. This project got my interest.

Pretty interesting looking model.
What is the fin type thing below the head of the thinker? Teeth?
If so - they are slightly flat looking - looks more like a fin on a fish instead of teeth.
Will probably look fine in game - because they won't be seen this close - but since you are showing them this close - thought I'd comment on how it looks in the posted image.
Rest of the model looks good, nice subtle color variations - purple/green, and normal/spec look good.

Nice trailer!

What amazes me most is that you guys managed to get 8 (or actually 9 I guess, as shown here) people on your team without (at least not much) financial backing. How on earth did you manage to do that?

You mention that it’s a project that’s enjoyable for you guys to work on, which I definitely understand, but that’s still a mean feat–how did each of you even come to know about the project?

Thanks very much for the kind words Venryx! You know it means a lot to get this kind of response. I don't think a lot of people appreciate the determination and dedication required in order to see a project like this through. You know we've had a lot of ups and downs and quite a few team members drop in and out. Fortunately, we are now in an excellent position with a fantastic developer and creative team working on getting the game finished. It's been a long journey, a lot has been learned and to be honest I've loved every minute of it. I said form the beginning that this game will get made and we will make it the best it can be! :-)

More eye candy will be coming soon! Thanks for reaching out

It is indeed a fin! This monster is telepathic and doesn't have mouth that we are all familiar with! Visually we went for something fetus like... a big floating baby... a real nasty floating baby.;)

More eye candy! The biggest and nastiest monster to appear in 2112TD is modelled!

New map finished. Gets tough here!

It looks fantastic! How did you create the map? Drawing the images or created with 3d models?

Thank you for the kind words Azami and sorry for the late response. The terrain is illustrated and edited in photoshop. Placeholders for the buildings are replaced with 3D models and then everything is blended together.

The final standoff between humanity and the hell spawn will take place on a rogue asteroid pulled out of orbit by the massive orbiting alien structure. How long can you hold them off..?

Awesome! I wish it was more common...

The reviews are very good, the game looks great!
I'd like to buy it, but how does it work when one buys a game on the Google Play Store?
Can I download the apk to physically save it? Or is it again the all-online curse, and the day the Google services are shut down (yes, it happens, see Google+) I'll lose it forever? (then it would be renting, not buying)
I just tried to buy it, but it only shows it'd work on my S9, which means I can't try it on my tablet (Android 9). And playing a tower defense on a screen's phone...
