A great story with over 30 hours of gameplay, the player will use motion and gesture controls to enjoy the narrative and gameplay that is a combination of spellcasting and old school tower defense strategy. All the while, some comedic knights are working as sports announcers giving you comedic play by play feedback from the castle.

You don’t have to take our word for it, check out this streamers review. Mad Fool Gaming called this the “GREATEST TOWER DEFENSE GAME... EVER!!"

Djinni & Thaco: Trial By Spire will be available on August 4th for digital purchase on Steam, with additional platforms coming later. 

More information and media available upon request.
