Castle Creeps TD

Studio: Outplay Entertainment
Release: Q2 2017
Platforms: iOS, Android, Amazon
Timeframe: Q2 2017 – Q1 2018

Castle Creeps TD is a Tower Defense game, awarded TIGA Best Strategy Game 2017, which combines classic tower defense gameplay with controlling multiple heroes with unique abilities and loadouts. I was onboarded onto the project as a design apprentice, under the Outplay Academy initiative, after previously working as QA due to the project’s need to target mid-to-hardcore players and to install more interaction into a typically passive genre.
