Defect allows you to build the ultimate ship piece by piece, from a single-pilot fighter to a space station the size of a small moon. Create devastating spacecraft capable of obliterating your foes, but keep in mind that your crew will defect, forcing you to face your creation in battle.

Offering unprecedented freedom of creation, players can build the most powerful ships in the galaxy with an easy to use building system. The game features hundreds of parts across three stylistic themes referencing a wide range of sci-fi culture.

About Defect Game

As a lowly captain on a dead-end planet, you must build a ship, complete a mission and wave it goodbye when your crew defects to the other side. Then design a new ship to hunt down those mutinous traitors in an endless cycle of punishment and revenge. Don't make your designs too good, because odds are you'll be fighting them pretty soon.

  • Unprecedented freedom of creation: Create the most powerful ship in the galaxy piece by piece, with more than 180 components available and many more to come.
  • Exploit your designs - Create the perfect design to complete the mission, but remember to build in a weakness you can exploit later when your crew inevitably turns against you.
  • Epic scale - Unlimited combinations available from tiny fighters up to battle stations the size of a small moon.
  • Fight your friends' ships - Upload your successful ships and take on the best designs the community has to offer.
  • Dynamic Music System - Compose a distinct musical theme for your ship based on the components used to build it.
