The Selenite Forge is a small indie game studio created by 2 brothers.
We started our first game Bionic Attack in 2011, and it was released in May.
We like to dream, to write stories, to play video games and of course to make video games!

June 10, 2017Improved controls update
In the latest update of Bionic Attack, we added some controls.
You can now move the camera with arrow keys and middle mouse button.
Towers can now be rotated by pressing twice its shortcut (previously used arrow keys).
You can now use the control groups to center the camera on its first item by pressing twice the control group shortcut.
The space key shortcut has been improved. With the Democratic Alliance :
- if you have a Bionic Weapon it selects it, if it's already selected, it centers the camera on it
- if you have no Bionic Weapon it selects the bunker, if it's already selected, it centers the camera on it
With the Conglomerate :
- if you have a Drone it selects it, if a Drone is already selected, it selects the next Drone or if if you have no other Drone it centers the camera on the selected one.
- if you have no Drone it selects the bunker, if it's already selected, it centers the camera on it
This update also fixes the dual screen behavior on Linux, you can now use the second screen to display something else.

March 30, 2017We are back
During all this years, we continued our hard work to complete our RTS Bionic Attack. Beta testing just ended this week and Bionic attack will be released in the weeks to come.
Why did it take so long ?
We are only two on this project and we wanted Bionic Attack to be the best possible game. So we added features and improved balance. We added :
- a multiplayer mode, with LAN and internet
- more levels of difficulty : discover, easy, normal, intermediate, hard, very hard
- new bonus system
- game statistics
- achievement system (that will be also available on DRM free version)
- more maps
April 17, 2015Bionic Attack is now greenlit !
Thanks to all voters. The game development is still progressing,
we are now working on AI levels and team balancing.
See you soon.
June 21, 2014The Bionic Attack release delayed
We have to inform you that the Bionic Attack release will be delayed, it should be out after the summer.
We are still improving the AI and working on the campaign.
It would be a shame to spoil 3 years of work by releasing an unfinished or unpolished game.
There are a lot of games available in alpha version, why not release our game in early access ?
The answer is simple, the game experience would be spoiled, especially for the campaign.
Most people, do the campaign only once, so the game experience should be the best for the first time.
Maybe we will release a beta version a few weeks before the final version but just for balancing and specific environment testing (for OS and hardware compatibility).
Thank you for your interest.
