Mindustry is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Mindustry is a sandbox tower defense game in pixel art style. It started as a winning entry in 2017 GDL Metal Monstrosity Jam. [1] The game supports LAN and online multiplayer. [2]


Apart from the classic tower defense mechanics, the game adds elements of mining and factories in the style of a proprietary game Factorio.

From a top-down perspective the player controls a robot who is able to attack with various guns. Most of the time, however, is spent by building a fortress whose goal is to protect the core from incoming waves of enemies. There are many blocks the player can build, such as drills that mine resources, belts that move them to the core, and towers that attack enemies. Some resources have to be combined in order to create new ones, e.g. coal and iron into steel. When the player dies, they respawn at the core.

There are three game modes:

mode resources wave start
waves mined countdown
sanbox unlimited manual
freebuild mined manual
