Defender's Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid for Mac/Windows/Linux. "It's Brilliant" - Rock, Paper, Shotgun "Incredibly Fun" - Destructoid Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense. Defender's Quest tightly focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles. The battle system builds off of tower defense, with individual characters taking the place of towers. Each character levels-up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. The overall game structure is similar to "tactical" RPG's, but with a real-time battle system. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued while the game is paused. Also featuring an engaging character-driven story written by an actual English Major!

Hi. Kind of a dumb question. On you're web site there's a link to buy the DRM free version for the 3 OSes and a steam key? Does that get the Desura key too?

If you buy it from their site, it comes with a Desura, a GOG and a Steam key along with the DRM-free version from the Humble Store.

Only Linux and Mac?

This game is absolutly stellar. This is what I've been looking for in a Tower Defense game.

I'm loving the game so far, and equally enoying the music. However, the download link for the soundtrack isn't working... Any idea if it's a problem on my end, or something that Desura or the developers need to work out?

Excellent game, bought it from the dev months and months ago and enjoyed every minute. It's had new content added since then too.

Somehow I received a strange error when attempting to install the Demo - it stated there were no authorized files available for distribution or something.

It looks as though it's something on Desura's end, or that you might need to re-upload the demo version of the game to them or something. But I dunno, I can't get it either... I'll probably buy the game but I wanna try it first

For now you can try the demo on our own site:
www.defendersquest.com/play_demo.html

It runs right in the browser, no installation necessary.

Played the demo. You had yourself a sale after about 15 minutes there.

The same thing has happened to me just now (the error, I mean), but I'll just help myself to the developer's demo download. ;)
