Space truckin’ ain’t easy; just ask Zebulon Kessel (Zeke to his friends), professional TUG pilot. First there’s the lack of respect. They’re called space monkeys or junk jockeys; clients see them as an unfortunate necessity; to their wives, they are simply referred to as disappointments. Then there’s the job; the long, monotonous hours in the vast expanses of space; the cantankerous supply managers who seem to be using a different clock than everyone else; the annoying space motes that gnaw at the hull. The life isn’t for everyone, but those that answer the space mariner’s call know what they are signing up for and wouldn’t have it any other way. Then again, most didn’t sign up for an alien invasion... 

Mutiny Games presents TUG, a top-down space actioner that combines the gameplay of the old-school shoot-em-ups (or shmups) with the strategy of tower defense. Pilot your space freighter through hostile territory, picking up pods and stranded civilians. There are no free rides in space, so put those hitchhikers to work, manning your pods, and create a weaponized caravan to blast a path through the throngs of alien attackers. Manage personnel and the length of your pod train in an attempt to escape alien clutches with as few casualties as possible. Fame and fortune await those that prove to be the best TUG pilots.

Fly a lightyear in Zeke’s shoes and experience the thrill of TUG piloting!
