“Hive Defender is a fantastic strategy game that brings some new elements into the genre and ratchets up the difficulty, but is equally rewarding for the player to win.”
Beta Tested, Game Reviewed

“I got wrecked in minutes... This is not a mindless game to sit back and just chill on, you have to pay attention and know the surroundings. I love this style of game.”

About This Game


Hive Defender has recently undergone a massive expansion of scope, thanks to the transition from being a solo project to being made by a team of three. As part of this, the game will inevitably change and develop, and as such the trailer, art, music, and gameplay features you see above may be out of date. That being said, what you read here in the description will be maintained to the best of our ability.


As featured in PC-Gamer and Indie-Gems, among others...


Hive Defender is a real time strategy game that takes place inside of a procedurally generated alien labyrinth.

The game strives to address the pitfalls of many grand RTS titles which are difficult to pick up, have a steep learning curve before they get fun, and require massive amounts of time investment. Instead, Hive Defender is focused on short and rewarding matches around 10-15 minutes long which provide the same deeply engrossing real time strategy we all know and love. In the game, you will

  • Take control of an alien hive mind and command multiple alien swarms simultaneously
  • Defend your home from human invaders - in all their endless forms
  • Destroy the walls of your own hive so you can evolve or mutate your alien swarms
  • Harvest the biomass of your slain enemies to activate a huge variety of deeply interacting special abilities
  • Team up with friends online or play alone in campaign, quick-play, or challenge modes.

Here's what you can expect before the final release.

  • A story rich campaign mode
  • A vast system of progression and customization (both visual and gameplay)
  • 6 quick-play game modes, including wave defense, zone defense, capture the egg, break the machine, bio harvest, and break away!
  • Challenge mode, for the most hard core players and for people looking to train their skills!
  • Multiplayer co-op mode, where you can work together with your friends online!
