Uncover a Gorgeous 16-bit World
The look and feel of Aegis Defenders is a love letter to an era of games when the sprite graphics of games like Chrono Trigger, Super Metroid, and the Legend of Zelda captured our imaginations. Featuring 16-bit inspired sprite visuals, every detail in the world of Aegis is painstakingly hand painted.
Defense Inspired Combat
Aegis Defenders features fast-paced, flexible combat fueled by defense mechanics. Players must utilize Bart’s ability to craft powerful defensive and offensive structures as well as Clu’s arsenal of firearms and traps to survive an onslaught of monsters coming from all directions. With the ability to combine and upgrade Bart and Clu’s abilities on the fly using our “Fusion System,” no two playthroughs are alike.
Dynamic Character Swapping
The dynamic character swapping feature allows players to switch between up to 4 characters at anytime. Survival will depend on the player’s ability to utilize the passive abilities of inactive characters just as effectively as active characters.
