In 2016, I feel like it's really rare to see a tower defense game of any kind that makes you say to yourself, "Huh, that's neat." That's not really a slam on the genre or anything as much as it feels like every possible iteration has been done before. The upcoming Chika Invasion mixes things up in an interesting way I'm not sure I've seen before, and if I have, it's been a while. Well, the neat spin Chika Invasion has is that you're place your towers in 3D, which means instead of just being on a path they can also be on walls and similar. Take a look:

Also in the Chicka family is another game with the working title Chicka Battle. The easiest way to describe it is multiplayer Worms in space with... Chickens? There's a whole ton of different weapons, gravity effects, and all sorts of other neat things:

Both Chicka Invasion and whatever Chicka Battle ends up being called should launch inside of a month or so, so stay tuned for more information on both. For more of our PAX Australia coverage, click here.
