Sometimes, the professionals look to unconventional sources to fill a gap. Sports teams have used water boys and towel boys to varying degrees of success. At Trendy, Pmasher and JDanford have graced a small-time intern with the enviable task of writing today’s DunDef Digest.
Let’s do this.
We’re No. 1 (Again!)
Because of you, we’re perched at the top of the Steam charts again. Thanks to everyone who bought a copy and supported our team of lovable misfits.
If this is your first time on our forums, we’d like to welcome you to our humble community. You’ll find help for any issues you may encounter in our Tech Support forums (Console | Mobile | Modding | PC). Be sure to read our forum rules before posting. If you’ve got the mana, head on over to our Trading Post forums (PC Ranked | PC Unranked | Console | Mobile ) and pick up a fine weapon from our wide assortment of community vendors. Check out our Guides forum if you need a spot of help.
And help us eradicate trolls by using the Report a Post function. You can find it in the brown bar underneath every post. Along with your help, our valiant team of forum moderators will be handing out infractions. One infraction point will be given for violating a forum rule. Five points and yer outta here (i.e. permaban)!
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like… the Holidays
It’s down to 50 degrees here in Gainesville. While we Florida boys are pulling out our hoodies and Cosby Sweaters, our heroes have taken the opportunity to be a bit more festive with their wardrobe.
For example, let’s look at the Monk. Inspired by his favorite underdog story, the crafty Monk stitched together the perfect reindeer outfit.
They Don’t Love You Like I Love You
A few people still have not been invited to our console community events. Your sorrowful words have speared me through my fragile heart.
So for this week’s challenge, I’m getting a full night’s rest, grabbing a pack of Monster and starting the events early. From 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. EST, on both Thursday and Friday, I will be manning the helm (unlike Peyton*) and inviting people to kill ALL the enemies. That’s eight extra hours of community co-op action, and it’s all because of my love for you.
I would like to make a couple of things clear before we do this week’s community challenge:
Please do not play music through the headsets. Since this is going to be early in the morning (yes, 10 a.m. is early for me), I’ll have chill music of my own emanating from my laptop. I’m sure your music is beautiful, but there will be no Trendy dubstep/folk mashups happening while I’m around. I’m doing this out of love. I reserve my right to revoke that love.
The extended hours applies to this week’s event only.
I will not be handing out weapons from previous events.
If you wish to do the event as a group, please include your friends’ gamertags/PSN IDs in the message. Unannounced guests are a no-no.
I Heard You Like Free Stuff
As JDanford mentioned in the last Digest, we want to see your ingenious and original Dungeon Defenders creations. If you have a song in your heart, a talent in the kitchen or an eye for detail, use it to crack the blockades to our crystallized hearts. Our favorite entries will win a free copy of our New Heroes DLC!
If you’re like me, you need a little inspiration to get going. I whipped up a beautiful work of art for your desktop to lift you up when the brain-well runs dry.
Behold! My magnificent creation!
Of course, if you need more professional inspiration, check out Danny Araya’s Dungeon Defenders wallpapers.
Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 9. Please include “DunDef Creation” in the subject header to make our lives easier.
He Likes Us!
In this month’s “Best (and Worst) Downloadable Games,” Daemon Hatfield of IGN gave Dungeon Defenders a shout-out. Check it out! (Also, Hatfield gave praise to one of my all-time favorite games, Kirby’s Adventure. So for that and more, we salute you, Mr. Appraiser of the Downloadable Domain.)
Fear not, Apple fans. Our team is hard at work to bring Dungeon Defenders to the Mac. If you’ve been playing on PC, you will be able to automatically copy over all of your Ranked and Open data via TrendyNet and Steam Cloud, respectively.
Of course, nothing is set in stone at this point. We’ll have more news as the development mold cools off.
We’ll end today’s Digest on a high note. In life, there are epic fails and epic wins. Just ask ceemeeir.
Have an epic screenshot to share? Send it to email@example.com with the subject header “Dungeon Snapshot.” Our favorites will appear in future Digests!
Thanks for staying with me. Hopefully I didn’t disappoint you too much.
