5 Fun Facts About Giants and Dwarves TD You Probably Didn’t Know

Since I love behind-the-scene stuff of movies and games, I thought I’d share with you some fun facts related to Giants and Dwarves TD.

  1. Our main inspiration for G&D TD comes from Shadow of the Colossus (the awesome game!) and Lord of the Rings the movie (especially that epic battle with Oliphants!)
  2. Initially, the giant is even bigger than the current version. It almost reached full game screen height! Check out this screenshot with ugly programmer’s arts:size_comparison
  3. While I’m at it, here is another early (ugly) screenshot of the game:terbangThere is a bug visible in the screenshot (the stickman units are floating all over the screen).
  4. The sounds for Trojan Horse is modeled after wind-up toys that often appeared in horror movies. If you watch a lot of horror movies, I’m sure you know what I mean. Interestingly, one of our tester notice this relation. Mission accomplished(?)
  5. Our initial idea is to make Chinese/oriental Dragon rather than the western counterpart. Chinese dragons are wingless, scaly and serpent like. This plan was ditched for simplicity because, animating serpent like creature is more complicated.

That’s all I have for now. Do you enjoy this kind of stuff? If you do, let me know in the comments section and I’ll try to share more!

Also, we’ve reached 50K likes on Facebook, so that’s a milestone. Thanks, Everyone!

Giants and Dwarves TD: little guys with big guts

It’s been a while since our last post here. We’ve kept telling ourselves to post more regularly, but have never really done so. lol.

Let’s just get to the good news. We have just released a new game (Yay!). It’s a tower defense game called “Giants and Dwarves TD”. Like the name suggested, the game puts you in a war between dwarves and giants. These little guys have lots of guts considering they have to face huge giants multiple times their size. Build multistory tower and command a hero and help the dwarves to win the war. Make use of the environment (such as falling boulders and burning hay) and cast powerful spells to destroy the enemies.

Check the game out on Kongregate: http://www.kongregate.com/games/LabuGames/giants-and-dwarves-td and let us know what you think! Thanks!

The Mustache Theory

Just like Einstein, Newton and Archimedes, we had a eureka moment when we’re working on Pirateers! and we came up with a theory which says:

“The inner-pirate of oneself is directly proportional to the size of oneself mustache.”

or, in a more scientific equation:

p = mc²


p = inner-pirate

m = mustache size

c = a constant (which we haven’t figured out yet)

I know that you’re baffled and confused when you read this post, so are we. We’re surprised by our own genius. Life is full of surprises. Yeah, I know. Bear with us, and stay tuned for the release of Pirateers! We will post it on our blog, facebook and twitter. Meanwhile, you can read more about the game here.

Game Preview : Pirateers!

Hi guys, it’s been awhile since our last blog post 🙂

We have a new game ready to be released to the wild. Meet Pirateers!, the game which had make us busy for several months.

Pirateers! is a pirate themed action games. It has non-stop sea combat, ship sinking, chase actions, treasure hunting, merchant robbing, and more. But, it’s not your ordinary action game.

The story began with a legend about an ancient artifact called the Neptune’s Eye. The artifact which was believed had the ability to open the gates to infinite wealth. And just like dozens of other pirates, Neptune’s Eye was the reason why player become a pirate. The black sea was fierce, and competition is tight. Not only navy generals which player must defeat, but they also stand against other pirates which chases the same goal.

Freedom of choice is what makes Pirateers! stands out. Player are not bound to the main quest and they’re free to roam the world, do some quests, treasure hunting, or chasing around unfortunate ship. Each to their own adventure!

Quests are pretty straightforward. It’s displayed on top of the screen, and player can choose one from three available quest at times. Once selected, a directional arrow will point to the quest objectives. When it’s complete, player gets his reward.
Besides quest, player can also do treasure hunting. First, they will get a map to the treasure island, and if they decide to go the island, they can dig and hunt for treasure.

Additionally, day system will add time management to the gameplay. Although player have the ability to free roam the world, there’s time limit in the day, so they need to time manage their action to maximize what they can achieve. This won’t be too restrictive either, as this will only affect player’s final score.

With the world that’s ever changing, 3 types of ship that player can pick, and robust upgrade system, there will be no similar adventure in Pirateers!.

Those are some key features we’re covered, but there will be more to Pirateers! so be sure to check it out when it’s released!
