  • Galacide

Galacide is an evolution of the shoot ‘em up genre, combining the fast-paced action from classic shooters with the quick-thinking tactics of puzzlers. Choose from a variety of ships, each equipped with unique features and abilities. Embark on your mission to tunnel through the strengthening alien invasion, find it’s source, and save the galaxy! Go it alone or assemble a squad of your friends to battle in the most unforgiving corners of the universe!

Please note, because of Engine limitations, mouse control is not yet supported on Galacide's in-game menus. We hope to bring support in the future.


In Galacide, you must carefully strike a balance between fighting the enemy and tunneling through the encroaching Bitwall, as neglecting either will assuredly result in your demise. It’ll take a combination of skill, luck, and an advanced spacecraft to ensure your success, so choosing the right craft for your piloting style is key:
  • Mining Ship - A retrofitted asteroid mining vessel, this ship has a solid balance of agility, strength, and firepower, and is equipped with a powerful tractor beam used to pull in enemy Scrap.
  • Freighter - A re-purposed cargo-hauler, this ship may not be the fastest or hit enemies the hardest, but it’s as durable as they come, with the ability store & retrieve enemy scrap in its cache.
  • Phase Ship - A top-secret military experiment, this ship is able to move extraordinarily fast and temporarily phase through the Bitwall, while dodging enemy attacks.
  • Military Ship - The accepted standard for military conflict, this ship boasts huge strength and firepower. Homing missiles lock on targets, and the ability to burst through the Bitwall, carving its own path.


As part of your mission to eradicate the alien invasion, you will journey across the galaxy and visit unique destinations like asteroid fields, planets, mining depots, and junk yards - Each location bringing you one step closer to finding the invasion’s source!


Galacide is regularly updated with improvements and new features, and currently has the following functionality:
  • 4 Player Co-op - Enlist the aid of your comrades in your fight to save the galaxy, with 4 player local co-op!
  • Campaign - Fight your way through unique environments and challenges to discover the source of the alien scourge and eliminate it!
  • Endless Play - See how far you can make it fighting through endless hordes of enemies and tunneling through the advancing bitwall!
  • Puzzle Play - Complete progressively more difficult scenarios that challenge your mind, not your trigger finger!
  • 4 Playable Ships - Choose from the Mining Ship, Freighter, and Phase Ship, each equipped with special abilities and unique attributes!
  • In-game Tutorial - Become an ace pilot by going through a quick training program.
  • Leaderboards - Track your skills and see how you compare to your friends and the best pilots in the universe!
  • Steam Economy - Achievements, Trading Cards, Badges and collectible Emoticons.

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8553579/9e27bdd6cc6217636320626f688aa234269b6c08.jpg We’ve had a big release on other platforms, and brought the improvements made along the way to the Windows version as well! We’ve been lucky to work with 3 talented voice actors to bring the characters of Edrist, Ajax, Konel, and Bucket to life. Now, playing through the campaign sounds wrong without them.

The previous announcement had to do with an update that we've been hard at work on. We currently are juggling work on four other projects, one of them being the upcoming Harmonious Prelude update. So let's talk about the progress on the next update for Galacide: Mouse Control The largest new feature for Galacide in the next update will be Mouse Control. Currently, we force everyone to navigate the menus using WASD or keyboard arrows, which really sucks. This was because Galacide was originally c...

Hey all, We've had a few updates sitting in the queue for some time, that should be out sometime this month. A few bug fixes leftover from early development Galacide on latest version of Unreal Engine Small fixes and optimizations due to new version of Engine Potentially a Mac OSX port! Early tests showed a pretty great framerate improvement on UE4 4.16.2 as opposed to the early versions of Unreal that Galacide was developed using. Looking forward to the rest of January, stay tuned! We'll make a...
