Defense Grid has just released a patch (on Steam) which, among other things, makes it compatible with DLC and adds 4 new levels (free) for Steam users.

* Support for DLC is enabled. Check out the new FREE DLC pack, Borderlands! Four challenging levels new to Steam players.
* Upgraded leaderboard performance - Defense Grid now uses the official Steam leaderboards. Unfortunately, this change resets all existing leaderboard entries, but the good news is that all of the leaderboards are wide open and waiting for your high scores to post. Defend the cores and show others how good you are.
* Corrected a bug in which Cannon towers would sometimes fire twice as often when using fast forward.
* Fixed an issue in which AI audio would still play even if the Voice Over volume was turned all the way down.
* Fixed an issue that prevented the Voice Over volume slider from responding to mouse input.
* The Achievements button on the Main Menu will now take the user directly to their stats and achievements page for Defense Grid.

I just tried a couple of the new levels. They are a lot more challenging (to complete without losing any power cores) because the power cores are wide open to assaults from all sides. Pretty fun!

I'm glad you like it.

Defense Grid and Plants vs. Zombies are probably my two favorite TD games. :Thmbsup:

Ha ha! I bet mouser loves that especially since he's always the one telling people to stop playing games and start programming them. ;D

If you own Defense Grid on Steam but haven't purchased the 4 Resurgence Map packs, here's your chance to get them for free:

http://store.steampo...mmersale/prizebooth/

You just need 3 tickets to redeem for the Resurgence Map packs. And you can get them easily by doing any 3 the following:

1. Join the official Summer Camp Steam Group: http://steamcommunit...com/games/summercamp
2. Link your Steam profile to your Facebook account. (from your profile page)
3. Make a comment on the profile of somebody on your friends list.
4. Write a review of a game (such as Defense Grid!)
5. Post a screenshot of a game.
6. Play a free game demo.

Those are probably the easiest way to get 3 tickets, but there are more ways than that and more to redeem the tickets for than the Defense Grid map packs.

And if you don't want to bother with the tickets then you can buy all 4 map packs for about $2 since they're on sale.

Also, today's the daily deal for Defense Grid. 75% off which means you can buy it for $2.50 and if you don't want to worry about doing those ticket thingies then you can buy all 4 map packs for $1.

Necro-Thread revival!

Just wanted to say that Hidden Path are offering a free Steam key to some DLC if you give them your e-mail address from within the game.

Launch the game and from the main menu go to Community and then select the option to enter your e-mail address for updates or something like that. They'll send you the key for some DLC maps. :Thmbsup:
