2015 Roadmap - What's Next?

Hi guys/gals with 2015 right around the corner I wanted to talk about our goals for 2015. I really think 2015 is going to be an amazing year for us. I'm really excited about our journey together. So I will talk about what I have in mind for PTD2 and Champions TD and even other projects beyond that.

What's Next for PTD2? (and PTD1)


Pokemon Tower Defense 2 story is done but there is still some content I want to add. Along with the Hoen Invasion you can expect an invasion day for each generation (including the first generation) along with a day that the map will have the normal Gen 2 pokemon that are supposed to be there. The Gym Challenges will still be coming out also. Something I've been wanting to add also is a map and the ability to fly to different locations for quick travel. The Iphone/Ipad version of PTD2 is also something I want to get done. Lastly I want to make an offline version of both ptd1 and ptd2. So if for any reason our servers can't survive any longer the game will still be available for all to play. (PTD2 having all generation is also good if trading is not available.) 

As far as making a PTD3, I've really wanted to make an original game for years now but unfortunately things have never worked out due to a lot of reasons. Now with Champions TD I'm finally making that step. Perhaps in the future there might be a chance to do another pokemon game but Champions TD will definitely come first.

What's Next for Champions TD?


Champions TD just come out! Play it by clicking here if you haven't played it yet and let me know what you think. In the coming year we will be adding many new levels, new loot, new bosses, new units to recruit, just new new new. I'm very excited about this game and I hope you will like it as much or even more than I do! Since this game is more unique we might have biweekly and some weekly updates to it. I also want to put it on steam, apple and android app stores. I just want as many people to enjoy it.

My thoughts right now is that the game will be free. There will be somethings you can buy but you will never have to pay to win. I want to get the auction house started soon but with so few items there isn't much of a reason yet. The next level will bring in more items and weapons so after a few more items an auction house will make sense.

I'll mainly be focusing on Champions but I haven't forgotten about Cosmoids. Originally I wanted to make Cosmoids TD right away but in Game Development things change very rapidly and you have to be able to adjust. My goal is to make a Cosmoids game in the next few years. I might not be a Tower Defense game but I promise you it will be great. Again Champions is my focus so I might not talk much about cosmoids. I do think it will be cool to see some cosmoids in Champions TD. So I might add some of them for fun into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  3. so Sam you said it will make an offline version of ptd 1.2 but you have any idea of when it had been ready and available to us? and you hv idea for how much time the servers will keep working? thats is my questoins

    and thnx realy for this uptades this are helping us a lot and the trainer is awesome !!

    so i wish a new year happy for you man and more ptd 2 pokes kkkkk ;)

    ReplyDelete
  4. don't have a good answer for when the offline version will show up, as far as how long the servers will be up, I don't have any plans to shut them down so should be good to go for a few years, I'll let you know then

    ReplyDelete
  5. make ptd 3 about the hoen region

    ReplyDelete
  6. when? I still think that to reverse the invasion would be ideal. Since the level of Hoenn is too low to train a pokemon: D

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have to set it up, I can increase the levels on the waves for some of the higher level zones

    ReplyDelete
  8. probably would look to make it something different

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hey Sam! Don't stress yourself out over this. While we do want incredible games and fast updates, I would rather have incredible games before fast updates. Take your time to give us incredible games. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Does Sam live in Miami?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sam is it possible to make the shadow mystery gift a different day other than Thursday or maybe have it on Friday or double on the two days.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dear Samta, for this christsmas I'd like to see Nidoqueen learning Body Slam. Also, I already have every other Pokemon with the move. Thanks and a happy new year!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sam, could you add an option to disable shadow pokemon popping up? Each time I go shiny hunting this annoying message shows, that a shadow has appeared which I have really no use of. Secondly, as someone before me posted it would be great for each player to be able to choose which invasion to have. Thirdly, can you buy Trainer pass using microcents? And if not, will there be such an option in the future?

    ReplyDelete
  14. maybe there is room for an item that will repel shadow or shiny to help out, but I think getting the shadow would be good to trade for a shiny if you don't want the shadow, could be interesting to keep the same invasion if you want, trainer pass with microcents is something that isn't simple to do I have to check it out, can't promise that it will come

    ReplyDelete
  15. nope but I do live in Florida

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey Thanks! I agree with you that there shouldn't be a rush, at the same time I like to push myself to deliver the goods in a timely manner, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank you for your answer. The thing is that most of the shadows were at some point available as Thursday mystery gifts, while shinies were limited giveaways. Thus nobody wants to trade for example shadow wurmple for shiny wurmple. An item would be a great thing to buy for the ingame money cause I have plenty of it and don't really know what to do with it. Although it needs to work for quite some time considering the appearance rate for shinies/shadows without having Trainer pass :) And btw, First level of Champions TD is great! Merry Christmas and keep up the good work in the next year!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Even though i'm kinda impatient but i'm okay with taking you're time so happy Christmas and thanks for the game, Sam all are very happy the you made it

    ReplyDelete
  19. Because it's in Nidoqueen's move list http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Body_Slam_%28move%29 And I don't like the idea of having a NidoQ without that move. Fix when you can. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi sam. In ptd 2, will you be adding accessability to the rest of johto and possibly kanto?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where is chimecho, lileep, anorith, numel and castform ? Please!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh cool in Tallahassee or somewhere else. My cousin lives there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Because it is Christmas on Thursday and some players may not be able to make it that day.

    ReplyDelete
  28. what i think about ctd is it is a awesome game just make the following things login option like ptd2 and ptd1 remove from the guild option which mean you could remove anybody from the guild(leaving yourself) even the annoying girl show when you lvl up for example when you start fighting and one of you allies leveled up lvl up is shown on the top of the ally if you add these thing i would love this game merry christmas and happy new year sam!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. will be fixed for the next update :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks! I see your point about Mystery Gift Shadows

    ReplyDelete
  33. not in the plans, Kanto would take forever and the rest of Johto I don't feel like it adds enough but thanks for the suggestion I don't mind people asking me things like this

    ReplyDelete
  34. lileep and anorith are version dependent and you can find them inside the ruins of alph, castform is rare on route 43, chimecho rare on route 44, numel on route 33

    ReplyDelete
  35. def adding being able to remove people from your guild, except the priest and yourself, thanks for the feedback!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I will look into it, no promises

    ReplyDelete
  55. Aw... I kinda am in the "meh" section for Champions TD... It looks like an RPG type of game, kinda like the usual Fire Emblems and other RPG type of games of the world... I'll rly hope that PTD3 will even take off... I've been waiting for decades and I think people like ur idea. Though just like Cosmoids its not rly gonna take off. I'm using my honest opinion here and I'm not a troll. I've been a fan of PTD for many years and I've seen ur mistake with Cosmoids. Though Ur trying 2 find an Original Idea for a game, I understand. Making games is hard an ik dat. xD I just feel that if u work on PTD3, a possible Pokemon Mystery Dungeon TD, and Champions TD, I might play ur game. Just... Fans r waiting for a PTD3 with Mudkip and the Hoenn Region (BTW, Hoenn is spelled "Hoenn" not "Hoen" in ur Hoenn invasion thing. Might be auto correct xD) Some Ideas 4 u r dis:

    1. Can u do that PMDTD game I've requested a few years/months ago? I liek Mystery Dungeon and putting a rouge-like combat system and TD system would be great :D
    2. Like JWittz said: "The story is pretty cheesy..." Can you make the story for ur future games less cheesy?
    3. Can u try to make Champions TD a little moar original besides the simple RPG Fire Emblem thing that most RPG-ers do? Like try doing Digimon Tower Defense? Or a Champions TD with a very epic plot (PMD Styled feels)

    4. For PTD3, Try doing a New fresh Hoenn Storyline (ex: Rayquaza turns u into a Pokemon and Jirachi is like Celebi who gives three wishes: (1) getting SnD coins for cheap or free for 1 day of ur choice, (2) a free Non-Legendary Shiny, and (3) No ads for 2 SnD Coins, and possibly (4) Free Daily Coins)
    5. Plz make stuff cheap! In PTD2 it disappointed me dat SnD coins were SO EXPENSIVE!! Try giving SnD Coins out on ur B-Day or free SnD coins for those with a trainer pass or (heck!) Make all prices cheaper!! xD Gee it's bad enough to get Shiny "Rayquayquay" for 5 bucks and only get a few microcents for videos and huge amounts of microcents for viruses or stuff dats legit that u has 2 pay 4!


    I hope 2015 is a great year 4 u and I hope u don't focus TOO much on Champions TD just like u did for Cosmoids... (Plus Cosmoids sounds like Cosmo from Fairly Oddparents and metoroids from space, Original but never took off :P)
    BTW Fire Emblem fans plz don't hate on me :P

    ReplyDelete
  56. hey @samOtero Whoops dis wuz a review that had 2 do with me not playing the game lol! but I think there should be dis:
    1. The story is 2 cheesy
    2. Make ze tutorial shorter... Gee its like the Zelda CDI Games xP
    3. WHERE THE HECK IS DAT RED GEM?? :P
    4. Renaming. I named my Recruits after Pokemon and I wanna rename 'lil Tim Tim... TO SUICUNE xD
    5. Make the characters have Smiley Faces! I feel moar bad for peeps who has Smiley faces. No. Not faces with other expresions, just... dis face im linking to: http://www.clipartbest.com/cliparts/bTy/79q/bTy79qnTL.gif
    or dis 1: http://www.clker.com/cliparts/7/d/9/B/f/R/smiley-face-md.png
    6. I kinda liek dis idea xD ignore wut I said when "its not taking off" its a GREAT Idea xD
    7. Just increase the range of the flag xD liek put the Flag in highlighted spots like in PTD.

    This Idea's great! Keep up ze good work ;D
    BTW: Plz do PTD3 or PMDTD! Just saying x3

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hey man I got a tip for you if the prices don't work try lowering them that usually worked for me when I was after SnD coins. For example I have a shiny Entei thats worth 20 but I lowered it to like 8 but I probably wont go lower.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Well. I don't have a job NOW, but they said whenn I need a job I always can come to them.:)

    ReplyDelete
  80. But if it doesnt work try lowering to like 17 or 15 for a couple of weeks or days.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Where do you live again?

    ReplyDelete
  82. yeah ikr. I did the same trick too before I got off

  84. I already have the shiny ones. Only regular and shadow are missing:/

    ReplyDelete
  85. Whats the age of work experience?

    Do you mean with which age you have to that?
    If yes then 16-17

  87. Yeah thats what I meant ten thats about the same for us then.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh^^
    You did it too already?

    ReplyDelete
