Humanity is at its end.
Threatened by otherworldly Titans, it faces unpleasant but certain extinction. There is only one last (albeit tiny) hope: the TDO! In the battle against the first Titan Gaia, the Titan Defense Organisation went all out at that time, and was able to achieve a victory with difficulty. Now that Titans are appearing again, most of the heroes from back then are dead, retired, or simply have better things to do than risk their lives once again. So now it’s up to you to determine the fate of humanity and defend the Earth against Titans like the fearsome lava snail Worldshaper.
1 – 5
TDO (short for Titan Defense Organisation) is a fast-paced, cooperative boss battler for 2-5 players. There are nine unique, likeable heroines and heroes to choose from, which can be roughly divided into the three categories of damage, defense and support. Their goal is to save the Earth from destruction by extraterrestrial Titans. Each of the four Titans has its own agenda and requires a specific strategy to be overcome.
The last hope of mankind
All of TDO’s heroines and heroes can be roughly assigned to one of three roles. Members of the damage group are designed to cause as much damage to the Titan as possible, and often go into the most dangerous areas directly in contact with him to do so. The group defense is either thickly armored or downright tough (at best, both) and can effortlessly deflect Titan attacks to protect less tough roles. Heroines in the Support category take care of the members of their party by healing, moving, or otherwise strengthening them.
Cpt. Blade was just 12 years old when the first Titan Gaia wiped out 70% of humanity, including the family of Eva Carlotta Santamaria, Cpt. Blade’s full name. In revenge, she helped destroy Gaia and quickly made a career for herself in the T.D.O. Today, she’s the face and icon of the T.D.O. The first to be sent on difficult missions and the last to be extracted.
DJ Kamo Flash
Best DJ in the world
Nobody knows the real name of DJ Kamo Flash. He showed up one day in the clubs of Jericho and turned the party scene there upside down. His brilliant beats grooved around the planet and brought him worldwide fame. He became part of T.D.O. to protect his fans.
DJ Kamo Flash
She was an icon of VR arcades, admired by a whole generation of gamers. Then her secret identity was revealed and she had to flee to space from social media. There she contacted the T.D.O. and has been working there ever since as a sniper and figurehead to recruit young people.
Barry & Nala
The last of their kind
Barry is a genetically modified, highly intelligent chameleon that hunts Titans equipped with a lightning launcher. Nala is the last panda of this world and lets Barry ride on her back to have a larger radius of action. The two have joined the T.D.O., because what else should two such extraordinary characters do but hunt gigantic monsters from space? Like, work in accounting?
Barry & Nala
As thick as thieves
The friends are originally fans of LOL_itaTM, who snuck aboard a T.D.O. spaceship to be close to their idol. They quickly realized, however, that with their friendship, honesty, perseverance and a bit of karate from old Chuck Norris movies, they have skills that are in high demand at T.D.O.
The Ram models were designed as demolition robots to clean up the devastation caused by the Titans. However, when they began to lay down their work and to philosophize about the human-robot-God relationship, the series was discontinued. When it became clear that Earth needed to be saved from more Titans, RAM 32 volunteered, a descendant of the Realist school who quickly discovered for himself the meaning of survival and struggle.
Dr. Hanuman has been researching all his life how to conquer the diseases of this world. After the appearance of the Titans, it was clear to him that they posed the greatest threat that mankind had ever faced. He has been supporting the ranks of the T.D.O. as a healer and tactician ever since.
Crisis project manager
Herr Schulz has undergone further training in evening courses to become a ” crisis project manager”. With the emergence of the Titans posing a significant risk to global supply chains, he is looking forward to putting his knowledge into practice. He prepares project and process plans for T.D.O., which benefits enormously from his structured way of working.
Starlett is known far beyond her native Korea as an influencer. At T.D.O. she works as PR manager and takes care of the contacts to fans and sponsors. Especially the latter are enormously important, after all, a Titan not only devours the whole world, but the fight against him also huge amounts of money.
Fight against Worldshaper (prototype)
Each round, one heroine or hero is the leader, and the remaining heroines and heroes are sidekicks. The leader rolls three dice, and each sidekick rolls one die. This allows everyone to be part of the action at all times and prevents downtime. The dice rolled then trigger the specific actions of the heroines and heroes such as movement, attack or healing. A Titan card is then drawn, which represents the Titan’s actions and sinister plans, and brings new challenges for the TDO’s heroines and heroes. For example, the Titan can inflict damage directly, or assert its influence on the world through markers. This sequence continues until one side wins the game.
The heroines and heroes win the game when they have destroyed the Titan. The Titan wins when it has either destroyed all three TDO bases, or when a total of three heroines and heroes have been defeated.

TDO lives from the colorful combination of Titans like the lava snail Worldshaper and the diverse heroines and heroes like the chameleon panda duo Barry & Nala, the invisible DJ Kamo Flash, or the awakened demolition robot RAM32. This mix makes each game unique and good teamwork is mandatory to prevail against the super-powerful Titans. The accessible rules make it easy to get started in the game and the heroines and heroes can be individually specialized by upgrades.
TDO is a very varied, entertaining game with witty heroines and heroes who cunningly combine their actions to save the Earth from extinction by the Titans.
