An evil dictator has taken control of your hometown turning everyone into mindless sheeple. It's your job to take it back! You are the leader of the Shepards, a group of rebels who vowed to bring down the evil dictator. As the leader of the rebels you have the power to strategically place strongholds across town.

These buildings spread positive influence that break the dictator's propaganda. Once all the dictator's influence is gone the sheeple will be converted into rebels and join your cause. You can use these rebels to build strongholds.

Sheeple will be released in waves, you have to convert them before they reach the dictator's HQ!

Perfect game! (With 163 rebels remaining!)

1920x1080 to boot!

Upper left and far right first, basic towers, use first "save" to build the tower closest to exit. Save up 50, get far left tower, the replace far right, end, and upper left tower, in that order!

Middle has a "save zone" in the end, that hits em for 80% in a small area...

Amazing game! Please let me know if you plan to make this a full game!

Amazing game, really unique!!

Anyway a nice and unique game. Hope you balance it better(if you ever update).


Who had the bright idea to change difficulty with resolution? I played like 10 times with the highest resolution and lost...


Due to the short period of development (48-hours) there isn't enough time to test the game om multiple systems, it might be that (if your CPU/GPU is not up to performance) the game might run too fast or slow.

I can't get past the first round even if I place the buildings the same way as the people who posted their videos... The "positive influences" are slower in my computer...


Wait a minute.. the lower the resolution is the faster the influence spreads!!

Pretty interesting game! And the fact you made it all in such a short amount of time in a way makes it feel much better! I do think that after a while it did feel a little easier after you get the second building in. Overall, I really enjoyed it and would love to see an updated version that was worked on just a bit longer! :D

I felt that the difficulty was fine at the beginning, but it progressively got easier (due to the better structures). Overall, it was an interesting game and a different take on the turret defense genre! I liked it, and I think that if you are going to improve this in the future, maybe add more variety to the waves, rather than just increase speed. However as it is right now, given the time limitation, it is a fine game.

Good tower defense game. But if you improve the game, you shoud improve some animations.

Love the idea, wish it was more balanced. I get you guys didn't have much time, but I'm finding it really difficult to get past the first wave with even scoring 1. Do you have any pointers?


Very nice game guys! Keep it up! Zijn jullie per toeval van Nederland? Aan de hand van jullie namen dacht ik dat als dat zo is: super spel en mooie graphics!


Hey, yes we komen allemaal uit Nederland. Thanks en groetjes!


Nice, leuk dat ik dat kon herkennen aan jullie namen :D groetjes terug!

We only had a couple of hours to balance the game, we tried our best.

I know. I am sorry I was angry when I wrote that comment.


I like it, but it really needs a pause menu

If only we would've had more time than 48-hours 😉


This game was very interesting and exciting! When you reach the last fortress you've pretty much won, because of how strong it is!
