ShackStream: Indie-licious protecs & also attacs in Dungeon Defenders: Awakened

On today's Indie-licious ShackStream, we're defending the towers and looting the hordes in Dungeon Defenders: Awakened.


We’re about to get our tower defense on in today’s episode of Indie-licious, y’all. On this week’s ShackStream, we’ve Dungeon Defenders: Awakened. The Eternia Crystals need defending and we're going to protect them with classic tower defense and rpg elements.

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is the latest in the classic tower defense franchise from the original developers at Chromatic Games (formerly Trendy Entertainment). In Dungeon Defenders: Awakened, you take up the role of one of four heroes in the Squire, Huntress, Apprentice, and Monk to protect Eternia Cyrstals which keep evil from seeping out into the world in a solo or co-op mix of tower defense and action RPG combat. You’ll create towers special to each hero, loot enemies, equip gear, and level up to gain access to stronger strategies.
