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.

Tied Together - A crazy new co-op platformer is coming to Nintendo Switch™

This game will strengthen yours and your friends' ties!

07 August 2018 Following the recent launch of RunbowHeadup Games tied themselves together with Napalmtree and announce the next crazy party game for Nintendo Switch™: Tied Together! Played cooperatively with up to four players, the game brings hours of screaming and yelling!

The colorful platformer thrusts players --Tied Together by a tiny chain by the way-- into several tricky, cooperative, experimental set-ups which only scientists could possibly come up with. In these environments, your skills of cooperating efficiently will be tested to the max as you overcome various obstacles, balance passages and deadly surfaces like spikes or lava. Not only will your skills be tested here, but also the strength of your friendship…

About Tied Together
One fine day a bunch of scientists created four tiny monsters. But for what? To test their cooperation skills of course! So they tied them together into a tiny monstrous chain and let them make their way through colorful, tricky, experimental set-ups which only scientists are able to come up with.

Complaining that the plot is as flat as 2D? Bullseye! You are right. The truth is: YOU are the monsters and WE are the scientists. Get tied to your friends and we will test your creativity and your ability to cooperate with each other! Think your friendship will stand this test too ?…

Single players don’t even stand a chance to handle the monsters' challenges. Also, it's a lot more fun to play with friends instead of playing alone, right? As a team you have to coordinate your movements, jumps and cling to the ground and walls in order to complete the levels and stay alive. It's not as easy as it sounds, but all the funnier! Every time your monstrous cooperative skills are not enough it will end in great chaos – and great laughter.
