Humble Bundle, Inc. has been showcasing multiple games as of late – we recently wrote about an interesting platformer called A Hat in Time – thanks to its “Presented by” initiative. Each of the five titles are intriguing/worth following. However, some of them caught our eye as soon as they were announced!

Aegis Defenders had a bit of a head start if you will. Developed by GUTS Department, Aegis was first introduced to the world via a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2014. It wowed everyone with its unique platforming and tower defense mechanics. Fast forward to now and the finished game is being published by Humble Bundle.

“In a world where control over lost technologies equals power, you play as Ruinhunters Bart and his granddaughter Clu to explore ancient ruins and uncover the one thing that can save their world from the ruthless Empire: a legendary weapon known as Aegis. Bart, a machinist, specializes in building structures. Clu, on the other hand, is a skilled hunter and trapsmith. Together the two must wage war against corrupt beasts and the Empire to save the world, one realm at a time.”




Players will need to switch between Bart, his granddaughter Clu, and other characters as they defend against/battle monsters while searching for the Aegis. If they don’t fancy going it alone, they can invite a friend to tackle the campaign cooperatively; the game will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op play.

Aegis Defenders is headed to PC later this year; it'll also be playable at Gamescom and PAX West. I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for it as things progress!
