Defect has launched on Steam in Early Access!
Early Access is Coming!
Release date: Mid to Late 2015
Build a ship, complete a mission and wave it goodbye when your crew defect to the other side. Then design a new ship to hunt down those mutinous traitors in an endless cycle of punishment and revenge.

Don't make that new design too good though, because you'll be fighting against it pretty soon.

The planet Asbestos. Fighting has broken out between corporations, governments, pirates and private citizens over the rights to prospect for a theoretical particle that theoretically exists in only one place in the universe. Theoretically, that's planet Asbestos. The research and mining costs have already bankrupted several planets, thus inflating the value of the probably nonexistent particle and creating a stock bubble that supports the entire economy of the galaxy.

Your job is to defend the planet for the Suppressed Systems Navy. Your crew has been drafted from prison, which is turning out to be a less successful policy than was promised. Morale is low. Mutiny is inevitable.

  • Exploit your designs - Create the perfect design to complete the mission, but remember to build in a weakness so you can exploit it later when your crew inevitably turns against you.

  • Unprecedented freedom of creation - Create the most powerful ship in the galaxy piece by piece, with more than 150 parts available, across three stylistic themes referencing a wide range of sci-fi culture, with more to come.

  • Epic scale - With unlimited combinations available from single-pilot star fighters to battle stations the size of a small moon.

  • Fight your friend's ships - Upload your successful ships and take on the best designs the community has to offer.

  • Cross-platform play - Seamlessly swap your creations between PC, Mac, iPad and Android tablets.

  • Dynamic Music System - Building your ship defines a musical theme unique to that ship.

  • Coming soon - An extensive alpha phase planned for PC and Mac, with the full release also arriving on iPad and Android tablets.

Mutinous Crew
Defect has been in development by a small indie team, Three Phase Interactive[] for two years. The team primarily consists of Drew Morrow (Artist/Designer), Paul Baker (Programmer/Project Manager) and Chris Burns (Animator/Artist). We're working with Sound Librarian's[] Stephan Schutze on the sound as well as getting some help from various veteran contract coders.

But my ships do :)
Three Phase Interactive  [author] Jul 21, 2015 @ 5:15pm 
Yeah, I don't think any enemies in the demo use flares :)
Wunder Jul 21, 2015 @ 4:39pm 
I am pretty proud of my latest creation, the Phantom Strike.

and its Heavy Multiple Rocket Launch System, Crystal Rain.

Crystal Rain's massive fire rate will keep even Super Class Ships on their toes, and can easily take one out.

whats it's weakness? Well of course, Flares.

Well spotted. An oversight when we added the race as a side mission. Fixed for new players.
Wunder Jul 15, 2015 @ 8:24am 
The demo is only meant to be for normal ships, right?
Well,by using the racing level as an anchor for the all parts gained, you can use the super class parts and then save them ,start a new game and use those ships.

Nice ship. What's the bug?
Wunder Jul 14, 2015 @ 11:06am
I would like to show my creativity, and also to report a bug.
Wunder Jul 8, 2015 @ 8:16am 
Cool! I was just showing an example, Wasnt intending on asking again D: :) :( :S ¦)

We decided early on to focus on the core idea of building and fighting. You will be able to fight AI-controlled ships design by friends and the community though. We'll take a look at real-time multiplayer post release.
