We will be looking into Crowdfunding as we move along, but we would much rather have a solid product to show you rather than just hype up the dream at this early stage.

What we do have is an open store so you can share your excitement with others! Funds raised from merchandise sales will be used for operating costs of testing the game.  Take a look at our DtN swag with the button below!

DtN is also promoting the Defend the Dome Club for those that purchase a hat (or any clothing item) from the store, awarding a Discord “Defender” title/role.  More info on this promotion and other ways to support the development can be found here.

A password will be emailed to you.
