Dungeon Defenders Celebrates Sales Milestone With Community Events

Dungeon Defenders, the fantastic tower defence/RPG hybrid from Trendy Entertainment, has now surpassed 200,000 sales on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. To celebrate, Trendy Entertainment is announcing one of its many plans to continue to support the game across all platforms, with free, weekly community events for console players. These events will allow gamers to play special game modes with the devs and have a chance to win unique loot found nowhere else.

We awarded Dungeon Defenders with a near-perfect score in our recent review (piling praise onto its fantastic co-op mechanics and insane level of persistent depth) - and personally, I hope that it will shift a lot more copies over the coming months. Dungeon Defenders deserves to become a massive indie breakthrough hit.

To keep track of the community events, Trendy has released a selection of desktop wallpapers that list the dates and times of each platform. We've rounded them up after the break - click to enlarge.

I really want to like this game, it's the sorta thing I should love. I found the demo really boring however. Is the full game better than the demo or just more of the same?

@jamesgrahamslack: The full game is better than the demo *and* more of the same. Dungeon Defenders is primarily designed for co-op, where the increasingly intricate maps and tough challenges come into their own. The RPG elements are also insanely deep, so if you're a fan of games like Torchlight, you'll be well away. It rewards you for every extra minute you put in.

If you mainly play solo, though, you're probably much better off with Orcs Must Die!

I did play the demo co-op (only 2 player though), but found all the waiting around between levels really dull after the first 2 waves.

There's a fair bit of that I'm afraid - though you can manually trigger the waves when you want?

jamesgrahamslack  Nov. 3, 2011 at 13:51

Yeah, but triggering a wave with incomplete defences is suicide. Perhaps I just need to try a 4 way?!

JonLester  Nov. 3, 2011 at 16:18

4-way? Your words, not mine. :p But yeah, I'd definitely suggest having a go at the demo in four player before buying it... though since we all sometimes only want to play with one or two mates, you might be better off erring on the side of caution if the two player left you cold.

Dungeon Defenders won't be to everyone's tastes, and again, Orcs Must Die! gives you a lot more fast-paced action for your money but without most of the delicious RPG depth.
