Why Island Defense?
Mech Defender started as a mech based runner. I quickly landed on the gunplay, and fell in love with it. Once that happened, it became clear I wasn’t making a runner any more, so I settled on an island defense.
What’s left to make this a real game?
Audio. Effects. Polish. Variety.
The core mechanics are there and super fun, but I didn’t have time for enough content.
What’s next for it?
I plan to revisit it at the beginning of May, add polish and post it to Kongregate.
