'Tavernacle!' Is A Co-op Tower Defense Game Coming To PC In 2023, Demo Available Now - Trailer

Grab your hammers and start to craft in Tavernacle!, a co-op Tavern Defense in solo or for up to four players.

 As a team of Dwarves, you must gather supplies and build towers to protect your beloved brewery. Explore the world and learn to cooperate to achieve victory in this chaotic multiplayer game!

Taking place in the fantasy world of Upper-Left Earth, Tavernacle! challenges up to 4 determined defenders to join together, gather supplies and build towers to protect the precious brewery from monsters determined to raze it to the ground. Blending resource collection and crafting with tower construction, each level devolves into a chaotic sequence of collecting various building materials and constructing or upgrading towers whilst avoiding enemy attacks and spells.

Each of the realms within Tavernacle! present their own distinct challenges and battlefields to overcome. Choosing the right towers to match each wave of enemies and managing resources are both crucial to success. Assess what tower type is most effective against upcoming enemies and ensure that your team of Dwarves has collected the resources needed to both construct and upgrade those towers to avoid being overwhelmed by the waves of monsters approaching. The combination of managing resources and tower construction makes Tavernacle! a tower defense experience like no other, and ensures every adventure in this treacherous world is an engaging, albeit chaotic, experience.

The Tacticon demo is out now and will give players a small glimpse into everything that Tavernacle! will be serving up when it launches next year…

Given its creators formed their team from a small group of friends, it’s no surprise that co-operative play is the key ingredient in Tavernacle!. With both local split-screen and online multiplayer for up to 4 players, anyone can get involved in the quest to beat back the beasties, protect the brewery and toast to one another in the inevitable post-fight feast!

Dwarves have a reputation of being moody, but you must communicate and cooperate if you are to save your beloved brewery from the monsters that are attacking. So grab your tools, and get to work: there is stone to mine, trees to cut down, iron to smelt and much more...

Key Features:

  • A combination of resource gathering and tower-defense gameplay ensures maximal chaos at every turn
  • Local and online co-op options for up to 4 Dwarves to defeat hordes together
  • Each enemy type and battlefield presents unique challenges that must be overcome through intelligent tower placement and resource collection

Tavernacle! is coming to PC (Steam) in 2023.
