Behold, his Majesty, the Abyss King!

For players on the dark side, this might be an interesting alternative to Knusperhexe!

Thanks Manu for the great idea. It took me 5 months, but finally we will have this tower in the game 🙂

Artwork by Brandon, imho one of his best creations so far!

Brandon joins the team

I am happy to announce that Brandon aka Vigi joined the Mazebert team!

You may remember Brandons awesome artwork for the Small Spider, his tower idea in the darkness challenge.

Brandon is joining as 2d artist. I’m so happy to finally have such a talented artist on board. This means that from now on you will come across towers that also graphically kick ass.

Today Brandon finished the artwork of Solara, the Fire Elemental. It’s frickin’ awesome!

Novice Wizard finished

The third darkness tower, the Twisted Novice Wizard made it to the game!

In game video

An army of Twisted Novice Wizards, accompanied by some Small Spiders, casting a lot of unpredictive spells!

Some screenshots

Twisted Novice Wizard has a quite long card description for a common tower. But it is worth it I guess. I’m very interested to see what strategies will evolve around this guy.

Some screenshots

The Small Spider art makes a great impression on the card and in-game. Vigi created a special spider-web projectile I could use, which gives the in-game character a nice touch.
