After nearly two years in development, the two person team known as Maiden Gaming is ready to show off their creation: League of Maidens.
League of Maidens is a free-to-play, action/strategy battle arena. The gameplay itself is said to take several features from various genres such as, tower defense, flight games, and even third person/first person shooters. Players go head-to-head in 5 vs. 5 battles in an attempt to destroy each other’s towers. Each match should run about 20 minutes. Check out the trailer and more game details below:

As far as the story goes, Maiden Gaming has plans to release a series of digital comic books. There isn’t currently a set release date, but these comic will outline the backstory and lore behind League of Maidens. The first one will be Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, with artwork by Ryan Kinnaird.

Despite being f2p and containing microtransactions Maiden Gaming promises that they will never charge for items that are required to be competitive. Their fees will only be used to purchase cosmetic items like outfits and skins.
If you were wondering how the trailer and gameplay videos were created, they were actually made using a tool that Maiden Gaming created called Motion Replay™. This tool allowed them to capture the footage you are seeing, and it too will be made available to players.
League of Maidens is set to release as a private alpha this winter, and will be playable on PC and Mac. If you’re interested, head over to the League of Maidens official website . You can see more screenshot, GIFs, and information on the FAQ page. Currently, registration is open for the alpha. Access to the private requires a $10 pledge, and a public alpha will be released sometime later. Supporters of the alpha will also be offered some additional goodies.
