ChronoDojo blends together two genres that I didn't think would work. Putting together tower defense and a beat 'em up sounds a bit odd, but I've seen a lot stranger. It reminded me of the classic Awesomenauts a bit, only co-op tower defense rather than a MOBA.

While it has no current official Steam Deck rating from Valve, the developers are clearly fans of the Linux-powered handheld. Writing in a post on Steam they mentioned:

We so love playing and developing games for and from our couch! So naturally, we had to pick up a Steam Deck for ourselves and play ChronoDojo all over again!

While we're happy to say that it feels right at home on the deck, along the way we noticed many little tweaks, minor issues and opportunities for improvement.

So! We bashed out this latest build and are happy to share it with everyone out there looking for a great game for their Steam Deck!
