Headup unleashes hordes of undead onto Xbox One, PC and PlayStation®4 with Hero Defense

Stop Lord Necrosis and his masses of enemies in this unique mashup of RTS, tower-defense and RPG!

16 August 2018
Headup and Happy Tuesday unleash the undead onto Xbox One, PC and PlayStation@4 today.

Hero Defense lets you create your own strategies to fight off vampires, skeletons, angry witches and many more gruesome creatures - with style!

It innovatively mixes together RTS and tower-defense game elements. In particular, RPG elements add enormous depth by providing players with a large variety of ways to improve the heroes' many abilities. Prove your tactical prowess by utilising the most effective combinations and create your own unique playstyle.

Check out the brand-new Release Trailer:

Help vampire hunter Jack Sanders and his tough group put an end to the undead scourge once and for all. Jack comes from an old noble family of vampire hunters who have fought the darkness for generations. But this quest is more than just business to Jack - this time it's personal!

Count Necrosis is none other than Jack's own father, who betrayed everything his family stood for by embracing the very darkness which claimed so many of the family's lives. In response, Jack swore to hunt down and kill Count Necrosis in order to redeem the family name. But when the time comes, will Jack be able to plunge a stake into his father's heart?

You will rebuild an entire town to get access to even more upgrades, advancements, skill trees, runes, magic spells and a whole arsenal of modifiable weapons. Figure out which combos work best for you, in Hero Defense the possibilities are limitless!

Due to its dark fantasy setting - including vampires, werewolves and Igors (assembled with love!) – Hero Defense will appeal to a wide spectrum of players as well as providing them with novel challenges. In addition, you will encounter bosses, such as Bones O'Malley and Doctor Amalgam, the Igors' creator.

All five heroes' abilities are tailored around their rich backstory, reflecting their individual personalities. Improve them in multiple ways to match your gameplay style. In the end, though your strategy skills will determine whether you succeed or fail: combine your heroes' strengths and coordinate their movements efficiently. Shrines and strong auras will serve as natural ideal spots whose usage will be inevitable to defeat the hordes of sinister enemies.

Grimmwood out now on Steam - how long will you survive?

This strategy rogue-lite survival RPG tests your social skills by placing you in a village with up to 39 friends and strangers

02 August 2018 Are you ready to have your social skills tested? Yes, you heard right: The strategy multiplayer survival RPG Grimmwoodstrands you in an abandoned village together with 39 other people - friends & strangers. In this constellation, you quickly learn to play as a well-organized team for the sake of your own survival, since death comes swift and unexpected. As you can imagine, antisocial behavior won't get you far.

Grimmwood features many rogue-lite RPG elements and is available now on Steam with a 10% release discount, so the current price is 13.49 USD instead of 14.99 USD.

Efficient survival includes different tasks in Grimmwood: You strategically plan your scouting routes and explore the procedurally generated area around your village; you gather resources like food, gear and other useful things; craft weapons, tools and food, and strengthen your village's defenses before night falls. Hordes of monsters will relentlessly attack your village every night, to try to plunder and kill you and your co-survivors. Rumor has it that after thirty days help will arrive from the outside, it's up to you to survive together with your village as long as possible!

Watch the brand new Release Trailer and see all key features at a glance:


Since the beginning of the Grimmwood Open Beta in early May, more than 20.000 players joined the villages in these dark woods and sent back lots of feedback to the developers. Since then, Grimmwood has significantly improved in terms of gameplay, functionality and replay-ability.

The lately added Blitz Mode perfectly extracts the game's key mechanics for smaller villages. You and nine other players are now able to play the game with a completely different approach. Blitz Mode is best suited for playing in long sessions as well as highly recommended for influencers.

With today's full release, many new features have been added:
  • Added local map markers to create specific routes
  • Move directly on the Global Map (as an alternative to the Local Map movement)
  • Monsters drop loot now and are fully animated
  • Terrain-specific sound ambience
  • 40 players per village in normal mode
  • 10 villagers in Blitz Mode
  • The different weapons have special effects during night attacks
  • Soundtrack added to the game, there wasn't any music before
Grimmwood is now temporarily available for 13.49 USD instead of 14.99 USD on Steam.

Holy flute nose!

It also received the "Best Family Game" award at the German Developers Awards and "Best in Show" at the Casual Connect Indie Prize 2013. And of course there were lots of nominations, too.

Its successor, The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk, continued this trend, receiving the "Best Indie Game" Award at the German Developers Awards 2017 and four nominations alone at the German Computer Games Awards - besides many game critics ratings between 80 to 90%. Continuously and ever since, the game has built up a huge fan base among gamers worldwide.

The Inner World will be available on the Nintendo eShop for $11.99 / €11.99 / £9.99, while The Inner World - The Last Wind Monk will be at $14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99.
