Steam Defense is a FPS-style tower defense mod with a lot of Strategy, FPS and RPG aspects involved. The mod is set in a steampunk sci-fi environment, and it's based upon the Source engine (Half-Life 2, Orange Box). It's also made with multiplayer cooperation as it's main focus. The basic gameplay evolves around defending a certain location from incoming waves of enemies. At the beginning of a game each player chooses one of two classes, "Engineer" or "Arms", and by using the various skills provided by these classes the players must defend their base. Engineers use towers and automated defense mechanisms to fight off enemies. They have to strategically plan out where to lay down defenses, and additionally provide strategic support for the other players. Armsmen use weapons and their own physical abilities to fight off enemies. They have to be very mobile to provide support wheverer it's needed, and always be on their alert against unforseen threats.

The first public alpha has arrived, comments and feedback wanted!

Posted by on

The first public alpha has finally been released, and we are eagerly awaiting some feedback on the game. Please feel free to try it out and post comments on, or at our forums.

Please keep in mind, this is the very first public release of the alpha version of this game. Due to that very reason I expect a lot of bugs to come up, so I would like to encourage anybody that tries this game to report any bugs they find to us. I have also added a bug report function on our homepage that should be easily accessible by anyone for quick bug reporting.

I would also like to add that the game do require a bit too much unnecessary resources at the time, but as soon as we get custom models and textures into the game, it will no longer require the entire Half-Life 2: Deathmatch installation to run. This especially regards the dedicated server.

We currently have one dedicated server up and running, that hopefully won't crash too much during this first release. Use the IP-address:
