Introduction



Description
Defense Grid: The Awakening is a very highly regarded tower defense game with excellent production values and good voice acting. The gameplay is challenging but balanced - an all around excellent addition to the TD genre.

Style
This will mostly be live commentary about strategy, with a bit of information here and there. Most of the combat will be in fast-forward speed until later levels. At that point things may get dicey and require normal speed. My focus is mostly on experiencing the game and the light story behind it.

Schedule
I'll probably be posting an episode or two per week, depending on how long these episodes take. No set schedule, just slotted in between my other LPs.

Participation
Feel free to play along and post your best runs on each level as we go along - I love this game but definitely won't be gold-medaling the whole game. Spoiler policy still applies - do not post runs on maps we haven't seen yet. Game modes are free game, show off whatever you want as long as it's a map we've seen.

Spoilers
Please use the spoiler tags for anything we haven't encountered yet in this game. The Borderlands or Resurgence DLC packs are exempt so feel free to discuss or make videos on those at any time - I won't be covering them.
