Digfender - sequel to CastleMine

Hey guys,

2 years ago I released CastleMine, a game I developed as a hobby while working full time. Thanks to everyone's support (especially some great feedback here at TA) it achieved over 2 million downloads worldwide. A year ago my brother and I quit our day jobs and committed ourselves to making CastleMine bigger and better in every way. The result is Digfender.





We're releasing Digfender free this Thursday, November 19. I hope you like it!


Cheers,
Steve

Awesome news! Loved CastleMine, great game. So is it a sequel or a new game? Will there be leaderboards? Endless mode? Stoked to have a play soon.

I guess itís more of a spiritual successor than a true sequel of CastleMine. It has the same digging mechanic as CastleMine but everything else has been completely rebuilt from the ground up! (no pun intended)

Yes to both! Iíve added a Survival Mode that you unlock early in the game and GameCenter leaderboards and achievements, since that was the most requested feature from CastleMine players.
