Deadstone, the first game by Timeslip Softworks, is a compelling blend of fast paced 2D combat and tower defense, backed by elements of resource management and an in-depth character development system.
Assume the role of Blake, a private security operative fleeing the Icarus space station after a bacterial outbreak transforms the station’s occupants into homicidal monsters. After crash landing on the surface of Mars, close to the mining colony of Deadstone, Blake quickly discovers that his part in the conflict is far from over.
Every time an infected gets past you, a colonist dies. Do you have what it takes to stop them? Fight toe to toe with hordes of infected monsters through 50 levels of pitched fire fights. Develop the perfect strategy to hold back the tide, through clever placement of defensive hardware, equipment selection, and resource management. Build the perfect fighter to complement your strategy, developing 4 primary stats: Speed, Constitution, Accuracy, Mechanics, and choosing from over 40 game changing perks.
Experience nerve wracking battles with an insidious, unrelenting foe across 50 levels, on the most hostile frontier man has ever dared to set foot on: Mars. Battle the infected in three distinct mission types: Patrol, Arena, and Colonist Rescue.
Protect the Colony:
Devise a strategy and deploy defenses before each patrol. Choose from 4 turrets and lay mines to create a defensive screen between the colonists and the infected. Upgrade your turrets’ stats, and research completely new abilities for them, such as the Kinetic Thumper, which releases recoil energy into a shock wave to push infected back.
Bring a Friend:
Experience the full single player campaign with a buddy in local coop.
Tools of the Trade:
Spend your hard earned credits expanding your arsenal. Choose from 16 upgradable weapons from 4 classes: pistol, shotgun, automatic, precision, and complement your selection with 5 equipment types, including flares, explosives, and armor.
Play your way:
Develop the ultimate fighter with the unfortunately acronym S.C.A.M. (Speed, Constitution, Accuracy, Mechanics) system, which is comprised of 4 primary stats, 11 secondary stats, and over 40 perks.
Face an Evolving Enemy:
Learn how to effectively combat 6 different enemies, including the soldier, commander, and the fearsome phase shambler. Contend with an enemy that attacks under the cover of night and dust storm, and even burrows under the surface to ambush you.
Experience two engaging stories, or play without if you’re just here for the action. Choose between a straight up survival narrative and a lighter, farcical take on the story.
Fight to Win:
Compete on online leaderboards for the top spot.
Casual to Hardcore:
Deadstone has 5 difficulty settings, to accommodate varying levels of skill.
