Early Press Coverage

"MarZ Rising is an interesting change for a standard tower defense formula and has some new and fresh ideas for this genre. [...] Surely the developers put a lot of love into this game, and it shines through."
~ 3rd Strike

"While playing MarZ Rising I had to remind myself that it was an early access game. It lacks a good deal of customization and could use a few more base buildings, but the central game, the artwork and the cut-scenes feel so polished already. It has a narrative that (while nothing incredible) does succeed in building tension and complementing the tower defence format. It also doesn’t feel like it’s trying too hard, the characters are fairly grounded, and not just constantly wise-cracking or trying to be super meaningful. At the moment, the game only consists of the main story, but when that main story is done so well, I feel like you don’t need a million playable options."
