If you’re a fan of tower defense games, you’re going to love Doodle Defense – at least I think you will. Played with a whiteboard, a Kinect, a projector, and a Mac computer, Doodle Defense takes drawing games and tower defense to a whole new level. While the concept of the gameplay is the same (prevent units from travelling from the entrance to the exit), how the game is played is very different to what we’re normally used to.
Instead of dragging and dropping buildings and towers on our computers, Doodle Defense is played with a marker on a white board. Players use a marker pen to draw mazes in order to slow down the invaders, and towers to destroy them – however, they’ll have a finite supply of ink so they’ll have to use it wisely in order to win the game. Sounds like a pretty cool idea – now if only you could play it at home. Well guess what? You can!
Doodle Defense is currently on Kickstarter, where its creator is attempting to raise funds for developing it into a fully polished product. In addition to the Kinect, computer and projector set up, the developer is also planning to port the game over to the iPad – if funds allow. So if you want to see this game available to the public, head over to its Kickstarter page. Check out a video of Doodle Defense in action:
