- Press Release -

Montpellier, March 2nd

The tactical tower defence Crypto Against All Odds is now available on PC! Developed by indie studio Pictagor Games and published by PID Publishing, its story explores the rise of crypto culture with a new and modern gameplay, similar to Plant vs Zombies. Discover the world of cryptocurrencies while battling against bugs, hackers, ransomware and other deadly cybersecurity attacks.

"The invention of Bitcoin has given rise to a fascinating crypto subculture. We want to make a game to celebrate this subculture and tell the stories of innovations, thefts, mysterious creator, conspiracies and memes in the Wild West world of cryptocurrencies. Our vision for the game is not only something that blockchain enthusiasts would appreciate but also an educational experience for people unfamiliar with cryptocurrencies but willing to learn. Hopefully, the game will intrigue more gamers to explore this exciting space."

In Crypto Against All Odds, you play as a blockchain security expert doing bounties jobs in the early days of Bitcoin. When hacking activities begin to surge, you sense a looming threat trying to bring down the entire crypto space. As you interact with other forum users, read terminal chats and message boards, you slowly piece together a big conspiracy. Meanwhile, the people behind it are also on to your true identity, something you have been trying to keep as a secret. 

Discover the trailer below:

  • Roleplay as a Security Expert: Take the role of a cybersecurity expert. Visit a virtual forum, take on bounties jobs, read terminal chat messages and uncover a huge conspiracy in the crypto space. 
  • Side activities: Partake in various activities in-between missions: chat with your crypto squad, trade cryptocurrencies, play arcade mini-games, read inbox messages from strangers. Use your wit to make choices, and be prepared for the consequences. 
  • Squad customization: Whether you want to slow down enemies with a plasma beam, blast them in an explosion, or teleport your crypto around, there will be a unit to cover your tactical need. Explore different synergies by combining crypto units with various supporting powers, from zapping a single bug to calling airstrikes.
  • Base building: Visit and upgrade your central Hub between missions. Each Hub upgrade is not only cosmetic but will grant additional features or even introduce an entirely new game mode!
