The Deadly Tower of Monsters is a science fiction top-down shooter video game developed by ACE Team (based in Santiago) and published by Atlus USA, which released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 on 19 January 2016.
The game’s framing device is that of an early 1970s B-movie The Deadly Tower of Monsters recently released on DVD, with the director’s commentary of its in-universe director Dan Smith serving as a combination of tutorial and meta-commentary on the game. The film itself is a space opera in which astronaut Dick Starspeed (played in-universe by actor Jonathan Digby) has been shot down on an alien planet full of innocent ape-creatures, ruled by a tyrannical emperor.
