'Dungeon Defenders' (ALL) To Support True Cross-Platform Gaming

by Rainier on March 2, 2011 @ 4:45 p.m. PST

Dungeon Defenders throws action-RPG and tower defense gameplay into the proverbial blender to create a seamless mix of leveling, looting and high-action territorial combat for casual and core players alike.

Dungeon Defenders features a lovingly-rendered watercolor art style and allows up to 4 players, online or locally, to take one of four distinct classes into fierce battle against ever-increasing waves of baddies and bosses across 15 arenas and multiple modes.

At Game Developers Conference 2011, Trendy Entertainment is demoing true four-player cross-platform multiplayer across the PS3, Windows-based PCs, iOS and Android devices—a first for this industry.

“We’re doing things now that we’ve dreamed about doing for years,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, COO and co-founder of Trendy Entertainment. “The industry is inevitably moving towards platform-agnostic interconnectivity for multiplayer and anytime/anywhere access to in-game content. Companies have trained us to expect such access with our music, our photos and any online media, pretty much everything. It's only natural for us to give gamers the ability to play Dungeon Defenders online, anywhere they want, whatever their platforms of choice."

Dungeon Defenders utilizes many of GameSpy Technology’s cross-platform online services, which includes multiplayer matchmaking and deep player data tracking. Additionally, Trendy Entertainment is among the first studios to take advantage of GameSpy Open, GameSpy’s newly announced initiative to make all of its services available to start-up and independent developers for free.
