Most tower defense games really don't have a storyline that most gamers would care about. Instead it's about defending your base with towers that you can upgrade, rinse, repeat, etc, etc. Conjurer: Awoken however is a slightly different type of tower defense game because it actually have a storyline to it that doesn't suck.
As you are probably awake from the title of this article, Conjurer: Awoken has a Lovecraftian style theme to it that is, as the developers explain it, a story that is guilt-driven horror.
In fact the game has a pretty interesting storyline to follow as the developer explains:
A single creature inspired the world of Conjurer. I then wondered where it came from – and who was responsible. Playing as the flawed wizard who breaks the rules and allows monstrous beasts to enter his world is much more engaging than being the good guy. With Conjurer, I wanted to create an atmosphere of impending doom, of grave mistakes that if left unattended would lead to a sudden, horrific end.
