About This Game

We Are the Universe combines standard tower defense and RTS elements where the enemy shoots back!

Explore a variety of turrets, enemies, walls and other buildings, across many different missions on many different planets.

Energy means everything. You buy things with it, you power things with it, you harvest it. Manage your energy wisely to defeat the toughest levels.

You build the maze to direct the enemy path.
Build bridges to span gaps to open up new areas to access resources, and in turn activate new enemy spawns.

Manage different types of drones for building walls and turrets, recharging capacitors, and harvesting resources to regain energy.

Buy new vehicles, turrets, and more. Visit space stations to unlock upgrades.

See the Early Access section for more information.
