SAN FRANCISCO - June 28, 2012 - 6waves and Brainz, Latin America’s newest game creators, today announced the release of their iOS tower defense and real-time strategy game, Vampire Season. Boogiemen, vampires, zombies, and other freaky defenders rise from the dead today to protect the coveted coffin of Dracula sought after by vampire hunters, jocks, interior decorators, and other more-than-likely supernatural haters on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices. It’s up to players’ defense and strategy skills to protect the Count from horde after horde of undesirables. See the game in action on in the launch trailer. Vampire Season is available now for free on the App Store.
Vampire Season strives to move away from known Tower Defense mechanics by incorporating Real Time Strategy elements and adding a blend of pop culture and high production values while not taking itself too seriously. Today marks the arrival of nefarious nuclear pumpkins, disco balls, pirates, princes, ninjas, and other eccentric cast members.
Sparkly vampires need not apply.
Vampire Season features
- Laugh your way through 30 swamps, dungeons, forests, and laboratories across three haunting worlds
