This weekend marks the anniversary of Dredd’s community events. In honor of such a joyous occasion, we’re donating FIVE unique accessories that you won’t find anywhere else.
In this anniversary event on Steam, players will be defending The Summit. But there’s a twist: Bosses throughout Etheria will be there to crash the party. As players progress through each wave, more and more bosses will appear in larger numbers. Can our Dungeon Defenders community stop these party crashers and save the anniversary, or will our Defenders meet their untimely demise? To sign up for this event, click this link and post your Steam ID, a link to your Steam profile page, the day you’d like to run the event and the time you’d like to run it. Sign-ups close Friday night at 10 p.m. EST, so don’t delay.
In January 2012, Dredd sparked the community-hosted event movement. As our console community events were winding down, Dredd formed a group to carry on the spirit of the events. Enter the 360 Winter Olympics. From a hot lava obstacle course to Squire racing, his events amazed our team and our community. To encourage more participation, we sponsored his events with unique items. Thus, the Sponsored Events were born.
He switched from the 360 to the PC last year. During his time on the PC, he and his team have created The Legend of Selda Events and their current series, the POLYBIUS Doomsday Saga.
Thanks for making our community brighter, Dredd. And thanks to all of our event hosts, both past and present, for all of your hard work. Our community would not be the same without you.
On another note, are you an experienced video editor? Want to help us make amazing videos? We’re looking for a video editing intern! You must have previous experience with video editing and a working knowledge of Adobe After Effects, particularly with compositing overlays onto footage. You do not have to live in the Gainesville, Florida, area, but that would be preferred. If you are interested, please send an email to email@example.com with the title “Video Editing Intern Application.” Include your name, age and video editing software experience. Samples are not required, but they are appreciated. All applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
Android fans, I have some bad news to share with you. I sat down with the development team to talk about when Second Wave will be coming back to the Google Play Store. I’ve been informed that Second Wave will not be coming back to the store. Our previous hosting arrangement for the game expired, which is why the game went down from the store. To modify the code to use Google’s new content hosting features is too costly.
In that same meeting, we discussed what was happening with Shards Part IV and the patch for PSN EU. At the moment, we’re on target to meet a crucial milestone for our next project. We’re not at risk of missing the milestone, but we need all hands on deck to ensure the ship is steady. That means that, for the time being, the DLC and patch for PSN EU will be postponed until after we hit our milestone. As all of that is under wraps at the moment, we are unable to share a date on when these items will release at this time.
I understand this was not the news you wanted to hear. This is not the kind of news I enjoy sharing. I wish things were different.

As we end this week’s Digest, I’d like to take the moment to announce a few community team changes and addition. We’ve hired Zack “Artorias” Donovan as our new community coordinator. You may have seen Zack’s posts if you hang around our PC/Mac Tech Support subforum. Zack will be helping us with lost heroes, feedback, tech support and Report a Player. Welcome to the team, Zack.
I will be taking a step back to focus on our future, so you’re going to see less of me around these parts. Laura is kindly and boldly stepping up to the plate. Our website content production will be back to full capacity next week.
Should you need me, you can email me, shoot me a Tweet or talk to me via forum PM.
Until next time,
Discuss this Digest here!
