Groundbreaking tower defense game pits peace-loving Trolls against angry Gods and Vikings of Norse mythology
Look out, here comes yet another stuffy announcement about an indie development studio formed by gaming veterans! Let me guess… they have groundbreaking new features that will turn the industry on its head? Well buckle in… here we go again!
Megapop, a startup studio founded by former Funcom (Age of Conan, The Longest Journey) and Artplant (Battlestar Galactica Online) developers, today unveiled Trolls vs Vikings, their debut game mobile / PC puzzle game, which will be demonstrated at GDC 2013.
Trolls vs Vikings is a brand new tower defense game for players of all ages and experience levels, where you're tasked with defending a tribe of grumpy, misunderstood-but-harmless Trolls from raids by Vikings intent on stealing their gold. This colorful, engaging and edgy lane defense game is set in a world of rich Norse mythology, populated by a cast of over-the-top characters. With their background in creating Triple-A MMO, Adventure and Browser titles, Megapop are setting the bar high for their debut game.
Trolls vs Vikings adds a number of never-before-seen features, striving to evolve the tower defense genre for a whole new audience. It takes a fresh approach to towers, levels, gameplay, tactics, player interaction and boss fights. In addition, Trolls vs Vikings has a number of genre enhancements, including multiplayer matches (both live and asynchronous), full social integration, movable towers, strategic resource gathering, a dynamic tile system, set-piece challenges, and more. How did they fit all that game into one little game?!
