FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

 

Indie development studio Refinery Productions today announced the release of their first IP 2112TD, a sci-fi tower defence game which is now available on Android & iOS.

Set 100 years in the future, players must battle inter-dimensional flesh spawn across the solar system and defend Earth's colonies from complete annihilation.

 

RELEASE TRAILER

 

The pace is steady, but the stakes are high as the relentless hordes amass in an effort to overrun the player’s mobile command centre.

Unlike traditional games in the genre, the player will be relying heavily on micro-managing dynamic action-based abilities. As they progress deeper into the campaign airstrikes, charged attacks, fortification walls and the tactical drone will become increasingly vital and deploying them strategically will be paramount.

Mistakes won’t go unpunished so the player must stay frosty, learn from their blunders and endure to fight another day. Without pain there can be no gain!

Throughout development, immersion has always been at the top of the team’s priority list. Every feature and mechanic was conceptualised with the intention of keeping the player fully engaged in the battlefield.

The audio and graphics have all been built from the ground up, handcrafted by the art team to capture the games aesthetic and setting. The artistic style of 2112TD will induce intense hits of nostalgia into the minds of veteran RTS players of the 90s and early 2000s. 

The base cost provides full access to all of the games contents with no in-app purchases or advertisements that break the player’s immersion.  

 

GAME FEATURES


  • BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED ENVIRONMENTS AND GRAPHICS

    2112TD’s artistic style is founded on the nostalgia of the RTS golden era, paying homage to games like Command and Conquer and StarCraft.

     

  • A CAMPAIGN TO TEST YOUR SKILLS

    The battlefield is an unforgiving landscape and every second counts. Beginners will find forgiveness on normal mode while veterans will be drawn to the brutal challenge of hard. When you’re ready it’s time to put your skills to the test in survival. How long can you hold back the hordes?

     

  • BURN, BLAST AND OBLITERATE

    Deploy the machine gun, flame thrower, artillery and plasma turrets to destroy your foes. Upgrade your towers to their experimental stages packing serious firepower and charged attacks.

     

  • DEATH FROM ABOVE

    When the situation gets too hairy you’ll be relying on air support. The airstrike and tactical drone deliver the big BOOM as well as defensive abilities. 

     

  • RESEARCH TO VICTORY

    Earth’s egg heads are working tirelessly to gain the upper hand against the new enemy. Unlock new abilities and weapons as you progress.

     

  • DISCOVER AND DOMINATE

    They call it the soldier’s dictionary. The tactical database gathers data on the battlefield about your arsenal and enemies alike. Be sure to check it often as it will be critical to your triumph against the hordes.
