Every year the world patiently (or not-so-patiently) counts down those 24 days to Christmas; there’s even calendars filled with little treats to help keep the young ones patient.
Then the big day rolls around and it’s filled with great food, great company and, of course, presents.
Christmas is the best time of year, and so to do our bit in celebrating we’re doing our own advent calendar. Each day we’ll unveil another game that has touched us in some way over the year – whether because it’s a work of interactive art, laugh-out-loud funny or just so weird it blew our mind.
So be sure to check back each day for a new game suggestion to fill your Christmas break!
6 Days to Go! Dungeon Defenders
Christmas is the time where friends and family come together to celebrate the good things in life.
That should include playing Dungeon Defenders.
This mash-up of tower defence and MMO-style hack-and-slash RPG is perhaps the most perfect multiplayer game of the year. From grinding loot, to building towers to kill big Orc-things, the action is frenetic, always entertaining, and hugely replayable.
The visuals and music are also charming, and show the developers have a good sense of humour.
Really, there's no better way to while away the evenings - Eggnog and Dungeon Defenders.
