Defenders of Ardania Developer Diary Launched

Paradox Interactive and Most Wanted Entertainment are happy to announce the launch of the first developer diary for Defenders of Ardania, the upcoming next-generation tower defense game set in the rich fantasy world of Majesty. To celebrate, 14 new screens have been released!
The game is currently in development for four different platforms – PC, iPad, PSN and XBLA and scheduled for release in Q3 2011. The developer diaries will be released on a bi-weekly basis.

From the first developer diary by Andras Klujber, lead designer:
” Yes! Yes! Yes! It’s so evident! What else could be more enjoyable than crushing evil AI monsters and burning their castle to the ground if not doing the same to our best friends? I sit back a bit, imagine the faces of my friends, as we smash each other in Defenders of Ardania at the weekend LAN parties or over the internet from our homes.”

If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
