Hidden Path Entertainment announced that it has raised the funds needed to make Defense Grid 2. On July 10, 2012 Hidden Path Entertainment launched its Kickstarter Campaign to fund new content for its highly acclaimed tower defense game, Defense Grid – The Awakening, and potentially a sequel for the loved title. And now, the company revealed that the Defense Grid community helped catch the eye of an investor and DG2 is successfully being developed.
Jeff Pobst, CEO at Hidden Path Entertainment said:
“Through the DG2 Kickstarter campaign we were able to not only raise money and make more Defense Grid content, but we created a shared engagement around the project with thousands of backers for several months. The excitement, involvement, and passion that the community displayed around Defense Grid directly helped us engage an investment partner and make DG2 a reality.”
Gamers will battle to protect their power cores on multiple locations throughout Defense Grid 2. They’ll have new and familiar towers at their disposal as they beat back both new and established threats. Hidden Path Entertainment is happy to announce the addition of both cooperative and competitive multiplayer game modes as well as user created content support.
Defense Grid 2 is expected to release in the first half of 2014.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
