Indie developer Knitted Pixels have today announced that their first game, a Twin Stick Shooter with RTS or Tower Defense elements, named Defenders of the Last Colony is available for purchase at KP’s website as well as some digital distribution platforms like (Desura and Indievania).
In Defenders of the Last Colony you fight against the Starians (some unknown aliens that are attacking the human colonies) while protecting the core of your Colony. You can play as one of two classes, Engineer, and focus on building structures (Shields, Turrets, Hives and Sanctuaries) or Fighter, and focus on fire power. Both classes collect blue matter (is what they spend to build structures or to switch to a different shooting type), they can also collect Orbs (to recharge the core of the Colonyand be able to jump to the next stage) and Relics (which unlock abilities). As you eliminate your enemies and gain experience you level up and build stronger structures, fly faster and have better shields.
