Gainesville developer announces international release

Trendy Entertainment, a Gainesville-based videogame developer, has officially announced an international release for its upcoming game: Dungeon Defenders.

The game could be described as a mix between an action role-playing game, similar to Diablo II, and a tower-defense, like Crystal Defenders.

Players will choose a hero to customize and use to defend their base against wave after wave of monsters in the land of Etheria. As each level progresses, players will have the chance to upgrade defensive and offensive parts of their base or improve their characters stats to better defend against the onslaught of enemies. Players will also be able to play online cooperatively or competitively.
