What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“A game like Ooglians is best developed through iterations, with no strongly set plan what the game will end up becoming. We strongly believe the community is interested and wants to help shape Ooglians into the best game it can be.
We want to get the game out there as soon as possible to get that feedback, improve the game, fix bugs/exploits and overall share in the joy of Ooglians!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A minimum of 3 months, but no longer than 1 year. It's all based on feedback and reception of the game. We want to keep the scope small, so that we can move on to other games in the Ooglianverse before too long, but if the community clamors for more things, we are more likely to increase the scope!”

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

“We want to add a lot of stuff to the game, and stuff will be added along the road as we work.
Some of the stuff that is planned (but in no particular priority order) is:
  • More Ooglian archetypes.
  • More buildings.
  • Upgrade system and/or tech tree.
  • Some form of meta progression.
  • Achievments.
  • Bosses.
  • Leaderboards.
  • Cosmetics - but for the Ooglians, not your ugly towers!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state is pretty bare bones - the core system is there, with all the basic elements required to make this a game.
Our two core features - base-building with a lot of cables and defend against the ooglian invasion - are in!”

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

“We think the price should roughly match the current state of the game, so the idea is that the price will increase over time. Expect the initial pricing to be about 50% of the full version!”

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

“We will have regular meetings to discuss the feedback we get for the game. The main channels for feedback will be Twitter and the Steam Discussion at first, but we ultimately want to have a Discord channel for feedback and communication with the community.

We will post semi-regular updates on Twitter, and occasional more in-depth devlogs on Steam.”

About This Game


The tower defense base builder you never realized you wanted!
Straight out of a fever dream, here is... Ooglians!

What are Ooglians?

Ooglians are a mysterious species.
It's unknown whether they are technophobes or destructophiles,
but they sure love smashing machinery to bits.

You are not an Ooglian.

You are... you. It's not up to me to tell you who you are.
Why are you on this planet?
What is your goal?
It is, as of now, unknown. Maybe if you protect your reactor, you'll find out.


Build the base around your reactor
Ooglians are attracted by the machinery
Ooglians try to destroy your base
Build more machines to defend your base
Attract more ooglians
It's a game loop
You lose when if your reactor dies
