Roguelike colony management in a hour


Play as an elite Laser Defense mech sent to build and defend a colony on an increasingly aggressive alien planet.

This game is in active development. You can follow along on my blog, on, or @mmakesgames on Twitter.

Current Features

  • Laser-slinging Combat: Reflect, split, and absorb your laser beam to make the most of each shot
  • Colony Management: Provide housing and jobs for your colonists, who then produce resources for you
  • Wave Survival: increasingly large and dangerous hordes of aliens attach each night!
  • Short Sessions: a full successful game takes about an hour, so you don't need to worry about losing hours upon hours of progress
  • Undo Your Mistakes: you can fully undo up to 20 turns -- experiment without fear!
  • Traditional Roguelike Mechanics: play as a individual character in a randomly generated turned-based grid-based world
  • Graphics, Music, Sound Effects, Mouse Controls: but don't worry, there is full keyboard support too
