Burden is a new take on Tower Defence games

1 min read


I’m a huge fan of tower defence games on my iPad; I’ve downloaded a ton of them, with Kingdom Rush being the obvious leader in the genre. But now an Australian development team is breaking new ground with their entirely different take on Tower Defence.

In Burden your job is to protect the goal by strategically placing towers to stop the incoming horde of enemies. So far it sounds exactly like your average tower defence title but there is something very unique about this one.

The goal in Burden is a moving colossus and you place your towers on this beast while it ambles across a wasteland. So for the first time the goal is moving and the landscape is changing as the game progresses which means you may well need to demolish and change towers as the level progresses.

It’s still in the early stages and there is obviously a lot of work still to do but so far it looks intriguing.

There are also a ton of screenshots over at vg247 for you to peruse.

Burden is coming to PC, Mac and tablets next year.

    Ok. This is a rad new idea!

    This is what our gaming industry needs (Not more TD games:P ). Refreshing current genres with new ideas. Like this. I hope this works out

    TD’s are beyond awesome. But there are too few mazing TD’s out of late, and the whole genre is pretty casual atm, 🙁 I liked being top of server on starcraft for half a dozen of them. But like any puzzle they get boring after you’ve solved it. I want more serious TD’s!

    TD’s are dawm nice but finding a good multiplayer TD is dawm difficult.

    Gone are the days of WC3 TD’s with 5v5… infact with soo many types of small games all in one.

    Why can’t value let people do that with the dota 2, and have modders remake all the best mods.

    Shippies, pudgies, all the TD’s (soo many good ones), the mini adventure games (and they even had the option to save your hero)

    played this at the EB GAMES EXPO 2013 and it was amazing! very fun, didn’t find any bugs/glitches, very fancy graphics (especially for indie) and addictive! it wasn’t just a tower defence – it was survival! I wanted my titan to survive
