    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.

    GAME OVERVIEW

    BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED ENVIRONMENTS AND GRAPHICS

    2112TD’s artistic style is founded on the nostalgia of the RTS golden era, paying homage to games like Command and Conquer and StarCraft.

    A CAMPAIGN TO TEST YOUR SKILLS

    The battlefield is an unforgiving landscape and every second counts. Beginners will find forgiveness on normal mode while veterans will be drawn to the brutal challenge of hard. When you’re ready it’s time to put your skills to the test in survival. How long can you hold back the hordes?

    BURN, BLAST AND OBLITERATE

    Deploy the machine gun, flame thrower, artillery and plasma turrets to destroy your foes. Upgrade your towers to their experimental stages packing serious firepower and charged attacks.

    DEATH FROM ABOVE

    When the situation gets too hairy you’ll be relying on air support. The airstrike and tactical drone deliver the big BOOM as well as defensive abilities.

    RESEARCH TO VICTORY

    Earth’s egg heads are working tirelessly to gain the upper hand against the new enemy. Unlock new abilities and weapons as you progress.

    DISCOVER AND DOMINATE

    They call it the soldier’s dictionary. The tactical database gathers data on the battlefield about your arsenal and enemies alike. Be sure to check it often as it will be critical to your triumph against the hordes.


    FROM THE DEVELOPERS…

    Developed under the Refinery Productions umbrella, the team has had no external financial investment and is not affiliated with a publisher.

    2112TD is a true indie title at its core, built during the free time of the developers. From the very beginning our team has been driven to create a truly awesome tower defence title, combining all of the classic ingredients that make the genre timeless and the game play everlasting.

    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! :)

    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.;)

    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...

    Hi Munchou!

    Thank you for the kind words!

    Sorry to hear your tablet is not supported! If it has under 2GB / less than open gl 3 then it is likely unsupported. Most mid-range devices that have come out in the last 2-3 years should be supported.

    The game plays great on your phone as well! That's where I did the bulk of my testing :) There's a zoom function as well in case you want to see the action up close.

    Good luck with the campaign and let me know how you get on! It's great hearing how players progress and seeing screenshots of their tower configurations.

    Hi!
    I beat the game today (in normal mode), some levels are super hard!
    I wish you had made a skills-tree instead of a unique upgrade in each category. That's unusual and limit the pleasure in annihilating the invaders.

    By the way, there is something missing in the Neptune Prison description, you wrote 4495km from the Sun. Looks a bit too close to a star, if you ask me. I can't imagine the speed of the planet to keep revolving and not get pulled and disappear.

    I'm sure my tablet is supported, I'll try to find a way to run the game, got to make sure.

    The drone is a great idea and a life saver!
    Pretty sure I won thanks to the special abilities and not the weapons themselves.

    Overall very good game, I look forward to any update (if planned).

    Congratulations Munchou on completing the campaign and thank you for the kind words.

    The most requested area of expansion so far has been the upgrade system - It is on our radar and I'll leave it at that for now :)

    Also thank you for highlighting the information regarding Neptune - I will investigate.

    We've just released a small update that contains balancing changes that impact the Asteroid Mining Facilities and the Earth Defence Platform. Those maps should be a bit more forgiving on normal mode.

    We've also started our boot camp series helping new players.
