The origin story of Kingdom Defense
“It all started with a small game that I made when I had a cold in 2011. I named the game “Castledefense” and showed it to my brother as soon as I finished the sprite of the first Unit, the soldier.
My brother, Steven, was instantly in love with the game and wanted to join as coder to make the game as nice as possible. From there it escalated, the game got more complex, several changes in gameplay and refined over and over, until we realized that this is our dream project.
As we discovered that its our dream to one day fully release the game and start a game business, we founded Icecore Studios.”
