Looking for something to get on Steam? Having trouble sorting through everything that’s in the store? We have you covered through our Steam curator list, where we post recommendations of games we’ve reviewed here on DieHard GameFAN or have played through on our own time. Additionally, once a week we’ll be posting recommendations for games on our list, highlighting one of the many games we’ve played and loved. This week we’re highlighting Dungeon Defenders II, the development of which I have been following here.
Dungeon Defenders II Publisher: Trendy Entertainment Developer: Trendy Entertainment Genre: Tower defense Release Date: 12/05/2014
Dungeon Defenders II is the highly anticipated sequel to the original tower defense title and has been in Early Access since December of last year. While I’m normally not a huge fan of Early Access, I think Trendy Entertainment has done an excellent job soliciting and following up on player feedback, and the result has been an enjoyable game that surpasses the first Dungeon Defenders. Dungeon Defenders II is free-to-play (another trend I tend to dislike but is done well here) and now in open alpha, so give it a shot. The visuals and soundtrack are great, the sense of humor from the first game is still there, and the maps are even better. Still not sure? Give the trailer a whirl.
