CrafDefense is a different sort of tower defense game. More MacGyver than Sun Tzu.

  • Customize towers by slotting items to modify targeting, flight, and applied effects. Every combination is viable. But it's up to you to figure out which ones will keep you alive in each battle.
  • Watch in awe as your towers randomly shoot, regardless of whether any space squids are anywhere nearby. Learn to turn their bizarre firing patterns to your advantage.
  • Cackle with glee as swarms of monsters are torn through by your carefully duct-taped arsenal.

I'm here from your excellent TD game design videos! Thanks for sharing all the info and making Crafdefense!

It's really fun to play with these powers like a toolbox instead of buying stuff. Adds a lot more flexibility without getting too complicated or relying on a few key builds.
You definitely succeeded at what you set out to do.

Thank you so much! That means a lot to hear.

Will there be updates?


I'm hoping to do a sequel in January. I have enough specific ideas that I want to add that adding any single one of them would feel weird. I'd rather bundle all of them together into a full game.


Amazing game. Y shape kind of sucks though x_x

If anyone is having a hard time remember you can remove modules and place them elsewhere fairly easily.


Thanks. :-)

Yeah the Y is very picky about where you place it. It can have very high DPS if all three shots are consistently hitting, but there are only a handful of emplacements where that's possible.


Good Game, Please make more


Thanks! I plan on it.
