Do you enjoy hack-n-slash but longed for a bit more? Maybe you like tower defense games but find them a bit boring? Heldric is a unique mix of the same old styles of game with a few new twists. A hack-n-slash without endless level grinding. A tower defense game with more action. A game where you don't play as an epic hero, but as a humble shoemaker who must work together with his fellow villagers to defend their home. Build and upgrade the village quickly before the attack waves start. Each building you place adds unique abilities to not only the player's character, but your fellow villagers as well. You must choose your structures wisely, as there are only a limited amount of plots to build. Each villager contributes to your coin income and provides essential help in defending the town. You must help defend against waves of monsters intent on killing everyone. Do you have what it takes to survive?

When you are always looking at yourself it can be easy to miss the rest of the world. A few new maps really screamed for the camera to pitch up when zoomed in close. Here we can see some freshly slain goblins helping to decorate the map with their crimson blood. Doesn't it just make you want to stop and enjoy the moment?

These maps are just the first drafts. As with the others, they are still in alpha stage and need to be polished a fair bit. This map makes use of different light colors and elongated shadows to help set the mood.

Our Steam Greenlight listing is still going, but most of the traffic and votes have slowed to a crawl. If you haven't done so already, please help pass the word around so this humble shoemaker can get Valve's attention.
