Dungeon Defenders is a tower defense RPG that has been for nearly eight years. Now, from Kickstarter to PAX South 2020, it's time for Dungeon Defenders: Awaked. Developed by Chromatic Games, Dungeon Defenders: Awakened marks the epic return of the multimillion-selling co-op tower defense RPG series. 

We got the chance to speak with one of the game's producers Alec Saáre, while at PAX South 2020 about  the title, the journey to the showroom floor, and just how the studio was able to complete the game in only 11 months. In the interview included in its entirety above, Saáre explained how Dungeon Defenders: Awakened aimed to take everything that existing fans loved about the first two games while also improving on it for a new audience.
