A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The harmonious creatures of Stamplands have been under constant attack from the Eraser Kingdom. Armed with the finest warriors, the kingdom aims to make Stamplands another one of its conquests. They mark their intentions as just, claiming the territory houses savage, vicious monsters, yet none can confirm the validity of the claim. With another attack incoming, it’s up to you to help your fellow ink creatures defend themselves against the Eraser Kingdom, and survive another day.

Siege of Stamplands is a tower defense game made for the Game Off 2022 with the theme "cliché".


Use the left click mouse button to

  • Click and drag metal clichés that can be used to create stamps on the map.
  • Click the tiles and gain more information about the stamps you placed there.

Use the right click mouse button to deselect the clichés if you don’t want to use them any more.

Interpreting Cliché

Our main interpretation of the theme is based on the world of printing. In printing, clichés can refer to “the carrier of the print motif, which is transferred to the object by the pad”. This concept of clichés inspired many of our systems, including a deck of clichés, ink as a resource, and stamping as our main player action.  

Clichés can also be “a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought”. We included this more traditional interpretation of cliché, but added a twist. We took the cliché of the “good guys” fighting against evil monsters and protecting their home. However, we presented a different perspective: that of the “monsters”. Not to mention, what’s more cliché than an indie team making a card-based game? x3

Siege of Stamplands is brought to you by Team OnionStamps from SupKal and Friends.
