Orcs Must Die! E3 2011 "Best Find"

We found this game hiding in a little corner on the main floor.  Their unique title drew us right in and took us by surprise!  Orcs Must Die!  A strategic action survival game that has you set up traps and defend a shrine while waves of orcs try to destroy it.  Each wave you survive gives you points to spend on more traps to slow down the attacking orcs.  Along with building traps, you are also equipped with a crossbow and spear to attack at long and short range, both with a standard attack and special attack that uses mana.  The game has a vibrant look, addicting gameplay and endless orc killing possibilities.

I was disappointed to hear that the game will not support online play or co-op when released.  After talking to developers though, multiplayer is something they want to bring to the game but wont release it till later.  However, with 20 different fortresses and a single player campaign, Orcs Must Die! will defiantly keep you busy for a long time.  The game will be available on XBLA, PSN and PC (Steam) this Fall.

Orcs Must Die! was our "Best Find" at E3.  Out of all the indie games we covered, this one kept bringing us back.  The team at Robot Entertainment did an amazing job developing a simple, yet addictive game that anyone can pick up and play.  Our hats go off to you Orcs Must Die! crew.
