History

Early in 2013, after the release of their debut title 'Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years' on iPhone, iPad and Android, Three Phase Interactive began work on their next title 'Defect' ; a space ship based game that is a combination of ship building and action/strategy ship vs ship combat. In February 2015, Defect was Steam Greenlit in a week and in July 2015 it was successfully funded on Kickstarter. Defect was released on Steam in Early Access on December 1, 2015, with v1.0 releasing on July 28, 2016.

Features

  • Exploit your designs - Create the perfect design to complete the mission, but remember to build in a weakness so you can exploit it later when your crew inevitably turns against you.
  • Unprecedented freedom of creation - Create the most powerful ship in the galaxy piece by piece, with more than 180 parts available, across three stylistic themes referencing a wide range of sci-fi culture, with more to come.
  • Epic scale - With unlimited combinations available from single-pilot star fighters to battle stations the size of a small moon.
  • Dynamic Music System - Building your ship defines a musical theme unique to that ship.
  • Fight your friend's ships - Upload your successful ships and take on the best designs your friends have to offer.
