Deadbuild is a RTS Tower Defence game. Your objective is to defend your village against waves of zombies. They spawn at night so you have time to (macro) gather resources and build defences at day. And when the night comes you can micro your hero and try to keep your village protected from enemies.

Deadbuild 1.1.0 - Random map survival


Hello all!

This is the biggest update on Deadbuild since it launch on Desura!
I have only tested it myself so I release the Random map survival as a beta.
It does not have desert and snow generations ready and balance between the waves is still underwork.

Deadbuild

New Gamemode - Random map survival!

The random map is more like a "normal" towerdefence. Your only objective is to survive,
There are 49 Days and the waves are like usually getting stronger everytime. But as the game goes on
the resources are starting to run low and you really need to think about your building placement.

Here is a small video what it's all about.


Making Random map survial
At my last devblog I showed you how I was generating the random map.


Random survival map after 22days

Other changes

There are alot of bugfixes and many changes also affect the campaing!

New Monsters

Ghost
-Can go trought buildings, untargetable every 2sec, 0 armor


Ghost spirtes

Dark Mage
-Heals nearby troops, makes him a highvalue target   


Dark mage walk cycle

I removed collision box from treetop, so you can now walkbehind trees and build behind trees.  And as you can see I updated hero sight, so it's easier to hunt down zombies at night.


New herosight and you can walk behind trees now!

If you did not see last time.
Buildings now show hp bar when damaged, monsters now correctly break everything if path is not found, so you better not block a way to the hq or you will lose somebuildings.
