Do you enjoy hack-n-slash but longed for a bit more? Maybe you like city builder games but find them a bit boring? Here is a different take on the same old styles of game. A hack-n-slash without loot or endless level grinding. A city builder without resource management. A game where you don’t play as an epic hero, but a humble shoemaker that must work together with villagers to defend against waves of attacks. Build, upgrade, rotate and decorate the village. Each building adds unique abilities to you and your fellow villagers. Defend against waves of monsters intent on killing everyone. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Finally got around to playing the beta demo.

Really pleased with the game. Nice and polished, good visuals, and decent sound design. Gameplay is kind of a mishmash of a citybuilder and tower defense (minus the towers). Pretty cool stuff, game is showing a lot of promise.

Here's the intro cinematic from the game. It was original going to be 2D, but because of a launch delay the developer had time to make a full 3D introduction.
