Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten on PC

Defender's Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense).

The player character is a female librarian named Azra (all character names, as well as appearances can be edited) who was thrown into the titular Valley of the Forgotten, which is referred to as The Pit" in the game, after contracting a dangerous plague. But not only surviving the fall but also the plague Azra is now trapped in the Pit. Next to other survivors, the Pit is host to a number of dead plague victims, which have turned into invincible (and very Zombie like) revenants. While normally invincible, Azra has the unique ability in drawing other character into the so called "half world", where they can hurt those revenants. Unfortunately, while being in this "half world", the character cannot move from their positions and only attack in a radius around their position. And this is what constitutes the tower defence mechanic.

On her Journey through the Pit, Azra meets new friends and foes, discovers the true origin of the plague and what has happened in the pit ...

Defender's Quest tightly focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles.

The battle system builds off of tower defense, with individual characters taking the place of towers. Each character levels-up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. The overall game structure is similar to "tactical" RPG's, but with a real-time battle system. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued while the game is paused.

It also features an engaging, character-driven story written by an actual English major! The story strives to be fast-paced, snappy, and always relevant to gameplay. Events and dialogue explain things as they become relevant to the player, minimizing exposition.

Finally, it's got options and accessibility settings out the wazoo, so that you can have the best possible experience!
