A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Pixelpusher is an online multiplayer action game with delightfully simple mechanics.

Control a small swarm of drones and fly them into your opponents while dodging theirs. Game mode: Capture the flag.

A game about my favourite part of diep.io.


  • WASD/Arrow keys: Move
  • Left mouse button: Attract drones to cursor
  • Right mouse button: Repel drones from cursor
  • Space: Dash (Drones)
  • Shift: Dash (Overseer)
  • E: Class ability
  • Alt: Ping map

(You really need a mouse)

Free and open source

  • Host your own server
  • Take the game in your own direction

Install instructions

Note: macOS users should first check the macOS client notes below

  1. Download the .zip archive for your operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux).
  2. Unzip the .zip archive. This should extract the pixelpusher-client executable.
  3. Run pixelpusher-client and enter the address of a server to connect and play.
    • Tab to switch fields, Enter to connect, Ctrl+V to paste

macOS client notes

The macOS client works, but it is a real pain to get running.

  • The macOS client is not packaged as an app, so it can only be run from the terminal. This means you will need to know some command line basics to play on macOS :S
  • The macOS client is unsigned, so you will need to explicitly give permission for it to run .

Also, I haven't been able to get fullscreen working properly on macOS.
