Defend Your Friend is a truly co-operative puzzle game. Both players are not just important, but vital - each with a unique role to fulfill. Through working together, combining their abilities and having each other's back players make their way through carefully crafted puzzles inside an imposing ancient temple. Getting to understand the inner workings of the temple, and hopefully venture off to freedom. With its accessible controls it is easy to pick up for new players, and is perfect for introducing people to gaming!

History

Defend Your Friend started as the second project in our second year of studying at the NHTV. It was intended to just be a quarter-year project, but due to the amount of positive feedback, as well as interest from Sony and our own motivation to keep working on the game - we continued.
