Defense Grid: The Awakening Summary
The first free game awarded to Xbox Live Gold members is Defense Grid: The Awakening, which was released back in 2009.
The Kickstarter crowdfunding of Defense Grid 2 both succeeded and failed. The funding managed to get the minimum $250K, but didn't reach any other level, much less the $1M that would have funded a full Defense Grid 2. Instead, an eight level expansion to the original game will be released.
Fans of Hidden Path's tower defense game, Defense Grid: The Awakening, will be pleased to find that the developer has opened up a Kickstarter project for the sequel, titled simply Defense Grid 2. The sequel is only being released on PC for the time being.
Hidden Path Entertainment has made a surprise press release announcing that their three year old tower defense game, Defense Grid: The Awakening, will be getting some new DLC on the 7th December on Steam and Xbox Live Marketplace.
