Night Guardian is a micro-strategy, tower defense game where you play as a night guardian. Long ago, there was a village hunted by monsters and dragons.  Then one day the Night Guardian appeared.  In morning, he used to earn gold by farming, hunting and fishing.

Graphics aside, it is nice to see a strategy tower defense game in a jam. 

You should rework the gold prices, so that the new players can have more choices to try. And grammar too.


A lot of potential, I recommend you keep working on it.
