    Does it mean it's blizzard's property?

    On more serious note tho, I played the mobile version a while ago and I like it in overall. But the main flaw is that specific combinations are way more effective than the rest, so the game was merely all about finding the best possible element combination, which doesn't feel like its actual full potential. I hope they have balanced things out in this release. But congratulations nevertheless!

    The publisher is Element Studios. So it's another slap to the face to Blizz Blizz Acti Blizz. #believeinthemodders

    I'm happy modders are leaving the modding platform for real games.
    Keep it up.

    As for the game itself, it looks alright.
    I never played a TD except for Plants vs Zombies because i find them boring, so i would love if the game took inspiration from that game.
    The effects seems to cause a lot of brightness when overlapped, that's something that should be fixed.

    Dota 2, Legion TD 2 and now Element TD 2
    Hopefully it doesn't go into obscurity like Legion TD 2 :(

    I'm buying this, saying it right now. It seems like a nice quick game.

    Any chance we'll be seeing you move this certain way with your map too Nudl? It'd be amazing if you can create an ultimately stable game, with only your map in mind.

    @Knight I'm already on it, but it's early in development so there's not a whole lot to show (see attachment).

    Lol i just noticed the Ronald Mcdonald level in the screenshots.
    Who's doing in the art assets?

    Cool, I played this quite a bit a long time ago. I had no idea it existed outside of WC3. Definitely considering trying it out on Steam :)

    Element TD has quite an ugly interface on Android, hopefully with this sequel it will be better (if it ends up getting an Android release).

    Unity

    This will be PC only. And the interface is a lot better since PC is the native platform.

    I have a lot of respect for this.
    You pushed through a game back from the old days in Warcraft III on different platforms.

    This version looks really good.
    I am tempted to play it :).

    $9.99.

    FYI, the trailer is just a temporary one (needed to get the store page up) that we're replacing before launch.

    Isn't the mobile/tablet market best suited for this kind of game though?
    Clash of clans comes to mind.
    I wouldn't discount the idea of releasing it across multiple platforms.
