Build&Battle - Turn based tower defense in final days of crowdfund

German solo developer Jens Bolanz AKA funtraum is putting together a turn-based, tower defense game but with RTS elements thrown in for good measure. The indiegogo campaign is in its last few days though, so he'll need some 11th hour help to get to his goal of just $6000

Jens says that although the crowdfunding target is modest, it is all that's needed to see the project through to completion due to his supportive parents.

The game features:
  • Base building
  • Resource gathering
  • Unit training
  • Technology researching
  • Plan your turn and put your strategy into action
  • Defend your portal
  • Unlock new building levels, towers and units by finishing levels from the world map
  • Use magic orbs to combine the power of the elements and improve your towers with it

Build&Battle has generated considerable support on the steam greenlight page but of course could still do with your vote to put it over the threshold. I think Jens has a good thing on the cards here as it's different enough from the typical cookie-cutter TD game and it's own charm and style.
