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!
