Obama and Romney Become Dungeon Defenders for President's Day

| 20 Feb 2012 20:01

There's one more way to watch Michelle Obama clip George Washington with a crossbow bolt now that President's Day Battle Royale is on Steam.

Indie tower defense, action RPG mash-up Dungeon Defenders has released a pack of DLC in celebration of President's Day (or as many have come to know it, "Free Three-Day Weekend Day"). The new President's Day Battle Royale includes a new mission, two new pets, and four unlockable character skins. The full set of content will be available on Steam, beginning at some point on February 20th.

As seen in the trailer, players will compete in the "Presidential Battle Arena," where heroes will duel for the most points while simultaneously evading a giant "Demon Boss." Beating the mission will award either a new skin, or one of two new animal pets. Here's the complete list of available unlockables:

Pets:
• Democrat Donkey Pet
• Republican Elephant Pet

Hero Skins:
• Monk -- President Obama
• Huntress -- Michelle Obama
• Squire -- Mitt Romney
• Apprentice -- George Washington

Much as the real Obama Apple-ified the White House, Monk Obama heralds the arrival of Dungeon Defenders for the Mac platform. Beginning March 8th, players will officially be able to fend off the hordes via OSX. Impatient, would-be Apple-flavored Defenders can apply for joining the beta, which is set to launch immediately alongside the President's Day DLC. Just send a quick email to betatesters@trendyent.com with your name, computer specs, and history with the game if you want to get involved.
