What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a sole developer I want to take the time to iterate existing features, perform balance changes and gather feedback, together with Early Access players, to ensure a highly polished game by the time of final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning on being in Early Access for 5-9 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are a few additional features to be added, more maps and the story is to be extended beyond where it is now.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version has most of the planned features implemented. The Campaign has 9 of the planned story missions included so far and has the ability to play a variety of maps via custom settings, including an endless mode. The character progression system is in place but is subject to change as further balancing is carried out.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We will look to gradually increase the price as we get closer to leaving Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are looking to build a community via Steam Early Access and other social media platforms. We'll update everyone regularly on all our social platforms, react to user feedback and answer questions on a daily basis.

User feedback to particular gameplay elements will play a very important role for content updates and for the final release.”

About This Game

The UPF is looking for Commanders to take on a tough but rewarding role within Defence Command, filled with possibilities, adventure – and limited Blueprint access.

Upon graduation from the Academy, you will be supplied with your very own cutting edge A.N.T. where you will be able to remotely perform your assignments, manage your career and customise defence Blueprints to give you power on the battlefield.

With the aid of the Artificial Intelligent Defence Assistant or A.I.D.A. for short, you will be able to access Quantum Relay Stations throughout the galaxy and manage local nanite resources to create structures defending UPF interests.


  • Use cutting edge defensive technology to repel thousands of enemies over the course of an assignment.
  • Utilise tactical counters and create new solutions for the 16 known offensive bot types - including anti-air.
  • Command your towers by adjusting their targeting priorities at a global or individual level.
  • Master the local nanite resources and the abilities they provide.
  • Have access to the UPF Simulator and replay assignments with custom settings of your choosing.


  • As a Commander within the UPF, you will take on a wide ranging list of assignments across much of the known galaxy.
  • Be the first line of defence and either repel aggressors or hold out till Fleet Command arrive with a physical presence.
  • Protect dignitaries and other VIP's from outside threats.
  • Perform operations outside of UPF territory where satellite coverage is minimal or non-existent.
  • Defend against enemies that adapt their resistances and fight back against your defensive structures.

Blueprint Access

  • Through the use of your A.N.T. you will be authorised to customise tower Blueprints in BILLIONS of different permutations.
  • Gain Mastery over the Blueprints and gain access to improvements and further options.
  • Opportunities exist within the UPF to advance your career and improve your Rank. With increased Rank comes increased access to defensive Blueprints, further boosting the possible permutations that you have access to.
