Playism have announced that Unholy Heights, a Japanese tower-defence/management game, will be hitting Steam this Friday. And it looks kinda great.
You play as the Devil, who has purchased a tenement building and converted it into housing for monsters, and that’s possibly the best sentence I’ve ever written. You have to attract residents, charge them rent, and keep them happy… but alas, heroic adventurers have heard about your schemes, so you’ll also have to fend them off by using your tenants in battle.
Which makes Unholy Heights sound like a cross between SimTower and Dungeon Keeper, really. It’ll cost a mere $3.99 and there’ll be a demo available at launch.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
