    Indie developer studio Refinery Productions today announced the release of their first IP 2112TD, a sci-fi tower defense 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.



    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.

    2112TD contains no pay to win features. 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 OVERVIEW

    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.

    FROM THE DEVELOPERS…

    Developed under the Refinery Productions umbrella, the team has had no external financial investment and is not affiliated with a publisher.

    2112TD is a true indie title at its core, built during the free time of the developers. From the very beginning our team has been driven to create a truly awesome tower defence title, combining all of the classic ingredients that make the genre timeless and the game play everlasting.

    Introducing 2112TD Boot Camp! The first episode covers the tactical drone and how to become a master.

    Are the flesh spawn getting the best of you? Fear not as one of the United Earth Defense Initiative's most revered commanders will be providing tips and tricks on how to dominate the battlefield. Air superiority is the focus of this episode. Whoever controls the skies, controls the battlefield.

    The tactical drone is the flagship combat aircraft deployed by the UEDI. A seasoned commander will exploit all of its abilities strategically to keep the flesh spawn in check. Damage bonuses, rockets and shields - What more could you ask for?

    We've just released a small update:

    Patch Notes (Android):

    Update 1.0.10

    It's been a fantastic few weeks since launch seeing everybody get stuck into the campaign and we appreciate the time that players have made to report their experiences and feedback - it means a lot to the dev team! We have been paying close attention and this update contains changes that directly respond to player feedback.

    Some of the later maps have been tweaked to be a bit more forgiving as we appreciate that the difficulty curve was a little bit steep.

    Your continued feedback and suggestions are welcome and appreciated so please let us know you you get on with the new balancing changes.

    Changes

    Towers

    - Gatling gun base damage increased slightly against all enemy armour types
    - Gatling gun charged attack damage slightly increased against weak/tough/reinforced

    Audio

    - Increased the volume of the lightning turret attack SFX

    Balancing (normal / hard)

    Asteroid Mining Facilities

    - Reduce frequency of zombie spawning on final wave
    - Slightly increased the time between some waves
    - Other minor tweaks to the waves

    Earth Defence Platform

    - Slightly increased the time between some waves
    - The number of hunks that spawn during later waves has been reduced
    - Other minor tweaks to the waves

    --

    Good luck Commanders!

    It's time to take on the brain boss and show the flesh spawn who’s in charge on the Carrier.
