Get Trenched, That World War I Tower Defense Mech Game, On June 22

Get Trenched, That World War I Tower Defense Mech Game, On June 22

The people at Double Fine Productions, of Brutal Legend, Costume Quest and Stacking fame, are releasing their next game in June. That’s Trenched, remember?

You don’t remember? Well, if you’re not in the mood to click the link to Kotaku‘s preview of Trenched, it’s an entertaining blend of tower defence tactics, third-person shooting from the comfort of gas-powered mechs, and raw, early 20th century manliness. You can see just how masculine this game is by watching the newly released opening cinematic for Trenched up above.

Here’s an older Trenched trailer with actual gameplay if that’s your speed.

Trenched is an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive and will cost 1200 Microsoft Points when it deploys on June 22. It has mechs, multiplayer, laughs and unlockable hats, so do check it out.


  • I have to admit, xbox live marketplace seems to crap over the PSN when it comes to small indie type games.

    Kinda jealous.

  • Am I allowed to make highly disparaging remarks about the game in comparison to Toy Soldiers, THE premier WW1 TD game on XBL? And they didn’t even have to get silly to make such a great game. (Well only a tiny bit, silly with historical accuracy!)

  • Maybe they should rename the European version of the game as “Tranché”, the past tense French word which means to slice into pieces.
