Ubisoft today announced an awesome looking free-to-play IP, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. This tower defence/dungeon crawler/point-and-clicker (okay I don’t actually know yet what genre it falls under) looks like a ton of fun and you should really check it out.
So what’s this game about?
In Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, your goal is to defeat as many castles as possible and to protect yours from being murderized. You will go on an adventure to loot bigger and well-defended castles to get the resources you need to build your own lair with awesome creatures and traps and gauntlets in order to prevent other players’ heroes from beating it.
The unusual suspects: classes
