Powargrid is a turn based strategy game that plays like a board game... with explosions! The goal is to destroy your opponent's power plants and protect your own.

Strike a balance between attacking, defending, and building your economy to control the board. Blast your opponent with shockwave towers or strike them from afar with the lightning cannon. Construct additional power plants to boost your power economy and extend your reach with substations. Is the situation looking exceedingly grim? Overcharge your power plants for a last ditch defense or a surprise attack!

In the story driven campaign, you will take on rival factions as a recruit in the Blue Blobbie army. Get shouted at by your lovable Commander Grak, face down Hero Archeologist Ford of the Red Blobbies, take on the mad green Zealot Zomg, and thwart the schemes of Chairman Swap of the Grand Yellow Blobbie Corporation. And rumors say that's not all...

Powargrid is still in development, but you can play the latest alpha version online at It includes the first few campaign missions, skirmish mode, and two player online multiplayer.

And of course we'd love to hear from you, either through the comments below or by dropping us a line on our site. Comments, bug reports and general encouragements are very welcome!

Once Powargrid is finished, we'd love to sell it through Steam (good reason to put it on Greenlight eh?) We'll also keep part of it available for free. This demo version will contain a couple of campaign missions, the basic skirmish AI and, more importantly, it can be used to join multiplayer games. With the full version you'll be able to host games, so you can always play against your friends even if they only have the free version. For the full campaign, we're aiming at 15 to 20 missions.

Anyway, that's what we have to tell about our game. If you haven't played it yet, feel free to give it a try at If you like it, be sure to upvote Powargrid and add it to your favorites. As mentioned, we'd love to hear what you think of the game and especially what you would like us to do more of or less of. You can find out more on our website and blog.
