What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a lot of ideas for the game and still have a lot of content to create. We really want community feedback so we can make sure we have a strong foundation and well-balanced characters before we proceed to build out additional planets, enemies, and allies.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Minimum 4 months. More likely 6-9 months.”

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

“The main addition will be content -- new levels, new enemies, new weapons, and possibly new character classes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first planet in the game which includes 7 maps (out of the planned 4 planets and 28 total maps) is fully playable . You may select from 3 different character classes (out of the total 5 planned). Players should expect significant character class, weapon, tower, ability balancing to occur during the early access period. There are still bugs in the game and we have not yet optimized for lower end spec machines.”

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

“We expect to gradually increase the price as we introduce more content. We're grateful to the community that is willing to invest early in a work-in-progress and so we are intentionally starting with a lower price than the final price.”

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

“We plan on taking feedback from the early access community on everything from alien design & behaviors to level designs to balancing and difficulty settings. We will be active on the steam community forums as well as in our discord channel monitoring player feedback and bugs. and communicating directly with the community as the game progresses.”

OVERVIEW

In Defense of Aliens dares players to be the best they can be in defending allied civilizations from onslaughts of militant aliens all across the galaxy. Success lies at the intersection of strategic tower defense and fast-paced 3rd player combat. With a range of settings to amp up the difficulty, the challenge won’t just come from killing these space invaders, but also how you choose to off them. Get creative with In Defense of Aliens and experience lush battlefields, unique worlds, and 4 character types each with their unique play style and progression systems.

BACKGROUND

Development of this game started more than 5 years ago as a way to teach my two sons and my daughter about programming. As a family, we were hooked on Dungeon Defenders and my son was obsessed with drawing alien creatures. We mashed them together with a father's desire to show his kids that they could not only play video games, but they could also learn to create them, and that was the original genesis of our game. Fast-forward to present day and my sons are at college (one studying Computer Science and the other Business with a CS minor) and this game has become a passion project for me and my daughter (still in high school). We've been fortunate to enlist the help of some great indie-friendly artists, animators, developers, sound engineers and an amazingly supportive community on our discord server.


It's been an incredible family journey and we're excited to share our creation with the world!
