About This Game

Starvoid is a multiplayer real time strategy game, wrapped in the easy-to-pick-up and easy-to-play structure of a first person shooter.

The player takes the role of a mercenary commander in the outer rims of the galaxy, fighting for control over the rare spaceship fuel, Starvoid. On the battlefield, the player has an arsenal of combat robots, vehicles and ingenious abilities ranging from deployable machine gun turrets and minefields to repair nanoids and orbital rocket strikes. Everything is constantly refilled as the commander instantly is allowed to re-enter the battlefield after being eliminated.

Alpha to latest update 3 months

Latest update 2 years ago

Most players since latest update 7 (August 2013)

Most players ever.... 87 (during beta fortnight)

Then the developers and publisher dropped it and turned off the servers.

You couldn't play this tripe if you really wanted.

Dont buy it, as you cant actually play it it's just 500+Mb of wasted space on your hard drive - whats worse is I had to leave it on the menu page for ten minutes before Steam would actually let me post this review!

Sadly there is no more people playing it, not even ten servers and you can't set up a new one.

The game was quite nice and enjoyable at release tough, but for that, you'll need people to play with...

Absolutely awful. It's a multiplayer-only game with totally empty servers, so it's literally unplayable. Continuing to sell the game in this state is a scam.

What happens if you create a wild Mix of Command and Conquer 4 (the Last GDI/NOD Game with the Mobile Base) and DOTA ? Well, a quite interesting concept, that isn't approved by the customers. So It's dead.

Since you got 2 for the price of 1 you can of course play with a buddy "private" on the regular Servers, since no one else is there.
But beware!
You CAN'T set up your own Server out of the box, therefore a seperate "StarvoidAlpha(!)Server" is needed,
without any UI and not native at all. Settings and so one are hidden somewhere,
but due to such "approach" to the Customer (including advertisement ingame for "Paid Servers") it's quite clear,
why this game was dead before the release.

If your're a Group of people looking for a fun and Fast MOBA / RTS Game, this might be your Solution, but if you're a regular Gamer searching for a living Community, stay away from this one!

A living proof of why i tend to avoid most of the multiplayer-only games which are not F2P, eventually they all become abandoned and you can't have any use of them later.

Starvoid is a quite decent real time strategy game which has three different gameplay modes: Battle, Sabotage and Team Deathmatch, each of them requiring different tactics and strategy. In Battle mode the goal is to capture the extraction points, in Sabotage mode is to corrupt the enemy team's facilities, and in Team Deathmatch mode - to eliminate enemy commanders, plus you also get quite a few challenges which can earn you some rewards.

Still, none of this has any sense as long as you don't have with whom to play. Nobody is playing it, 0 players online most of the time. This game is a VOID indeed. Considering that once you purchase the game you get a extra copy for a friend - you could try playing it in two, though it becomes boring after a few matches anyway. Also, there is no way you can set up your own server, you just need to look for an automatic one and pray to God to find one, since they are down most of the time.

Servers seem permanently down. Game seems abandoned. I can't believe Valve/Steam allows this.

Don't buy this game, you can't play it. It's multiplayer only and there's absolutely no one on it. Just don't even buy it.

Truly excellent if you enjoy games which can only be played in PvP but which have a playerbase of zero. In which case you have strange interests.
