Suddenly a vortex emerges and he’s sucked into his TV, where he finds himself the star in his very own video game adventure.

Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten DX
Defender’s Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense). It 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.
