All Articles: Trenched
Trenched, the tower defense game where you battle runaway TVs, is now available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade. Developed by Double Fine (the runaway TV plotline makes so much sense now), the XBLA-exclusive game has been priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
More information about the game, straight from Microsoft, can be seen here:
Protect humanity from the evil Monovision menace in this Tower Defense Shooter from Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions. Join The Mobile Trench Brigade! Use a combination of mobile firepower and stationary defenses to turn the tide of war in our favor. Customize your trench with thousands of possible loadouts. March side by side with allies from around the world as you fight your way through Europe, Africa, and the Pacific. The Mobile Trench Brigade. Walk with us.
Double Fine Productions has announced a release date for Trenched, their alternate history tower defense game version of World War I. The game, which features roving bands of evil TVs known as the Monovision menace, will be available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade on June 22 for a price of 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
Double Fine has also unleashed the game’s opening cutscene, which you can view above. Just hopefully, not on your television.
We haven’t heard much about Trenched since it was announced back in March. Today, Double Fine broke their silence about the alternate history World War I game in the developer diary seen above.
Sharing a virtual beer with the viewer, Project Lead Brad Muir and several other members of the Trenched team discuss the Xbox Live Arcade game’s origins and their hopes for its future.
The next game from Double Fine was announced at GDC with the reveal trailer you see above. Trenched will be a hybrid tower defense and third person action game (sound familiar?), taking place in an alternate World War I. Players take the controls of mechs to fight off aliens known as the Monovision. There’s no release date, but you’ll be able to start the fight on Xbox Live Arcade sometime this year.
