A new trailer for an upcoming game rolled across our inbox today, and it looks awesome. The game is called Defect: Spaceship Destruction Kit, and it was originally unveiled in our forums way back in October of 2013. The idea is to build the ultimate spaceship piece by piece using a very elaborate ship editor, then send your creation out into battle to see how it fares. A cool twist is that people in your crew can defect to the enemy's side, so you might end up facing off against your very own creation. So don't make it too good, you know? Check out the trailer.

The new trailer and info comes alongside a push to get Defect approved through Steam Greenlight, as the game is aiming for release on both PC and Mac in addition to iOS and Android tablets. The word "tablets" makes me think this one is destined for large screens only, which may make sense given the space needed to create a ship in the editor, but I'd love support for Apple's larger iPhone 6 screens if possible. Defect is shooting for launch in mid-2015 so keep an eye out for more information in the coming months. You can also find out more on the game's official website.

    Looks a bit like a more laid back Starborn Anarchist. Possibly with more strategy and less reflexes?

    Great concept with a terrible name. Defect sdk is more wha? than ha!

    Should have been "mutiny forever"

    But I guess that problem merely accelerates this product's way to free app of the day or $2 steam sale or pay what you want shovel ware humble bundle.

    So, dev team loses and customers win. Next!


    Very very interesting.
