Reserve that username!

As of now you can register an account with the Casual Collective. Registering an account will do three things. Firstly you will be reserving the username, preventing others from using the same name. Secondly when the site is live we will send you an email (which will remind you of your username and give you a link to the finished site) so you are one of the first to play! And thirdly, those that register early will get some form of reward when the site is fully functional. Right now the site is not finished, so registering is all you can do, but we hope to resolve that soon ;o)

// Update 20th July
We had 1,376 registrations today. Also noteworthy is that this post is the 16th most popular today across the whole of WordPress. And as if that wasn’t enough, this was the best day in terms of hits for our blog with 4,877 views.

    Love Elemental TD!!! Play it so much and even introduced it to my friends at work, have about 10 people playing it right now !!! thanks for the game =]

  2. Stephan says:

    Sweet, registering is all I WANT to do.

    Ok not really. Do you have any sort of time frame you want to share?


  3. You might want to fix the registration form, it asks for my date of birth but the label says ‘Your age’.
    Looking forward to the launch.

  4. tunkio says:

    Nice works guys!

  5. Daniel says:

    When you go to register an account, it asks for your name and age.
    However the bars where you put in your age appears to ACTUALLY want your birthdate, because it asks you for the year and month. Please either say “Enter birthdate” or get rid of the month and year or that will drive me crazy.

  6. Paul says:


    The site will be open in beta form from the beginning of next month

  7. Dave says:

    I have left it as “age” and removed the day/month/year and replaced it with a box to type in your age.

    And Daniel, drive you crazy? You only have to do it once :)

    Why do you want our real names?

  9. Nick says:

    I think your emailer silently fails on email addresses with +’s in them – and they’re totally valid. Gmail lets you do which I use compulsively for signing up for services. My first attempt to sign up with a + in my email didn’t work (I never got the email) but my second, without the plus, worked fine.

  10. John says:

    Oh man, I really can’t wait for this to come out! I’ve enjoyed Desktop TD, and now this?! I believe I have been living under a rock for the past few weeks.

  14. grahamsnr says:

  15. Karan Goyal says:

    Wow, that will be awewsome, I am kinda addicted to that game :)

  17. Eric says:

    I have really enjoyed playing VectorTD and DesktopTD. Great work!

    I had the same issue mentioned earlier, about the mailer not liking email addresses with a ‘+’ sign in them. The RFC for emails does agree with google’s usage, and the + sign is indeed valid. If you could fix this, that would be much appreciated.


  18. Dave says:

    RE: + symbol in email address

    I first thought the + was making the format checking (regex) fail, but it was cool with the “+” character, so I sent a test to “dav+id” and it arrived however it was to “dav id” the + character was gone and replaced with a space. This would have prevented Google from filing the email into the correct account. I have corrected the problem and you can now register with email addresses containing a “+”

    Thanks to those who reported this problem.

  19. Dave says:

    Age, Real name and Gender are now optional fields. You will also be able to edit them at any point.

  20. col says:

    yo, love your work. simple and playable, which is missing from so many games these days. i’m in for multi.

  21. Dingolicious says:

    Kick ass! Reserved my name and read that not only will i keep that name now, but there’ll be some sort of reward?! :O:O:O:O:O:O I really hope it’s a gold star :P

    Anyway keep up the good work chaps and i hope to see this casual collective thing take off very soon :D


  22. ben says:

    hi i would register but by the time the site is ready i would of forgotten about it
    ps:when you play flash element save your cash

  23. Paul says:


    We will be sending you an email when the site goes live. This email will include your username. Also on the site there will be a way to find lost user names (by entering the email address you used to register)

  24. kurt biewald says:

    Dear Paul and Dave,

    the tower defense game is awesome

    if it was an arcade game in the 70s, I would have spent many many quarters on it

  25. Begeisterung says:

    Cool we can change our real name whenever we want, lol…

  26. david the beta tester for DTD says:

  27. socialorb says:

    Wow… this is interesting. I guess I am mad lazy but what is this Casual Collective? A game?

  28. Michael Proctor says:

    Can’t wait for a MP version of DTD, my wife and I haven’t stopped playing it since seeing a blog on it a month ago. Even my 6 yo likes it.

    GREAT WORK and look forward to the next incarnation of it

  29. kAmz™ says:

    i cnt w8 till i play MPDTD all mah friends in my computer class plays TD XD so i’ll noe they gonna luv wat i show em next

    // Edit by dave:
    TRANSLATION: I can not wait till I can play MPDTD, all my friends in my computer class play TDs, so I know they are going to love what I show them next.

  30. Ramuthra says:

    I must say the multiplayer idea intrigues me, will you at any point be atempting a co op style of game? i just feel this would be a natural progression for TD’s after taking it to the point which you are now (versus). i’d also like to know which of the TD’s you feel you’ll be taking the most inspiration from, desktop where you build your on maze, or flash element where the map style is chosen for you. I appreciate that at this point you probably won’t be able to answer these questions and if so i’ll keep an eye on this blog and hope i see the details emerge at a later point :)

  31. Dingolicious says:

    Ramuthra i believe the inspiration for desktop TD came from a warcraft 3 map called Autumn Tower Defense. It had 4 players, 2 spawns each, each spawn crossing into 1 other player’s area then exiting. 1 leak meant death. The layout of each player’s area in autumn td is the same as the layout of the DTD playing area.

    I might be wrong though, so don’t quote me on it!

  32. Split91022 says:

    Flash Element TD is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I made it to the part when the monster name is gg than died.

  33. fung says:

    nice game, thx

  34. Api says:

    Jogo viciante e simples. Mto bom.
    Alguem aí do Brasil?
    A very nice game. Maybe in X-Box, PS3. I don´t know how. haha
    – Big Grid (more spaces or lowest spaces)
    – A creature coming on all sides (Challenge)
    – Destroyer (Can destroy some towers without upgrades)
    – Half towers (it can be installed in half spaces)
    – “Fast Upgrader” (a tower just like “medicine” to fastest upgrade on near towers)
    – Timer Tower (simple tower when installed starts a sells timer)

    Please make my DT Dream come true… hehe
    (sorry for my wrong english)

  39. Paul says:


    You need to go to the Casual Collective site and register. We can’t do that for you!

  40. anticimex says:

    Looking fwd to multiplayer,DTD is already a top time killer for me!!!

  41. Gabriel says:

    Hey this game of TD 1.5 is awesome! One thing I dont like is the upgrade tower has very limited space around it. The money icon is yellow (which I dont get?) Can you make the money Icon green, it would help people distinguish money easier.

    Thanks for a great game!

  42. Paul C. says:

    looks like their site crashed.

  43. Dave says:

    My bad, it’s up now.
