Defender's Quest Demo Released!

Level Up Labs is proud to announce their upcoming Tower Defense / RPG hybrid Defender's Quest  for Mac, Windows, and Linux!

Playable demo available here:

"It's a mix between Tower Defense and a traditional RPG and it's REALLY fun."

-Robert Boyd, Cthulhu Saves the World

"The RPG aspects are a real credit to the game... this is the first time I've been so engaged by tower defense in a while!"

-Rodain Joubert, Desktop Dungeons

A young woman finds herself unceremoniously dumped into a plague colony.  Discovering a strange "half-way world" between life and death, she proceeds to gather a small army of disaffected survivors and sets off in hope of escape!

Defender's Quest is a unique blend of real-time Tower Defense strategy and tactical RPG meta-game, complete with a colorful cast of characters and fast-paced story-telling.

This game respects your time. Play through the game's "casual" missions for a quick 2-5 hour experience, or hunker down and take on "advanced" and "extreme" missions for the hardcore 30+ hour experience you crave.
