TailQuest: Defense is an action packed Tower Defense game in which you play as Nell who tries to defend his world from the invasion of Nands - robots which are kidnapping fluffy inhabitants of the Riventail - a divided world floating in the sky.

Stop invaders, by placing towers at strategic points around the colorful landscapes. Collect hidden treasures, use environment for your advantage and most importantly save Nell’s fluffy friends!

Key features:

  • Tower defense meets puzzle platformer game
  • Defeat enemies by building towers and using environment for your advantage
  • Team-up with a friend to defend cooperatively in local Coop mode
  • Very vivid and colorful world
  • Use special items, tomato-mines, bubble gun and more to stop evil robots!

We've been game developers for many years... Wait, let me check? Yes. For 13 years.
We were both students when we met. Despite the great distance, we were connected by love for free and open source software, games, books and for each other.

This love has spawned several games already, and now you can check out our newest and biggest game: TailQuest! You can check out our game here, or Steam and .
In the demo version you will find as many as 7 secrets, many interesting mechanics and a level built especially for the demo version. You won't find this in the full game!

While creating our game we used (of course) the linux system and the Godot Engine.
Our other tools include Blender, Inkscape, Gimp, Audacity, kdenlive and Substance 3D.
If you like timelapse videos that show the process of creating a game - you should definitely check out our youtube channel.
Beautiful music for our game was created by our friend Wojciech Usarzewicz whose other songs you can find here:

Wish us good luck and we wish you a lot of fun!

This is a package for windows. Just download and run the exe file.


It's clear a lot of time and skill has already been poured into the game. I am impressed by the mechanics and the clever combination of puzzle and tower you've going there! Would love to play/test a beta version.
Great stuff.
