Trüberbrook's ''Interrogation Trailer'' gives first insights into its story

Play Trüberbrook at gamescom!

17 August 2018 The past few weeks a lot has happened in our little Trüberbrook: Most of the villagers have been given their voices, all the houses, squares and secret science labs have been built and the team is about to go on a great journey... To give you an impression what the game looks and feels like, we have assembled our new "Interrogation Trailer". For this, we have only used hand-picked and unaltered ingame material. Have fun watching! We hope you like it!

Synchronisation and soundeffects

The tape recorders are breaking into a sweat! We are happy to report that almost every character in Trüberbrook now has a voice. Altogether, we have recorded about 3200 lines per language. It's amazing to see (or rather hear) how the good people of Trüberbrook are now becoming real personalities

The tape recorders came in handy for a second time, when we went outdoors to record our first atmospheres and soundscapes in the wild. To create a world which is as authentic as possible, we'll have to wait until September for the very last recordings, in order to allow even the native autumn birds to find their way into the game.

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.
