"Another 4X game. A bit old by now but a really nice one as well. Re-imagines a lot of the features from Master of Orion series and has space bears!"

“When you finally uncover the secrets to ancient alien technology or build a frigate that wins a deep space battle, StarDrive provides a sense of accomplishment few games can.”
73 – GameInformer

“Some omissions and flaws, but balanced by excellent alien races and ship design. A welcome addition to the crew.”
78 – PC Gamer

“I love that StarDrive’s master lists of ships and planets can be sorted by any column, making it easy to find the largest nearby planet or ships in your fleet that are costing you the most in maintenance.”
70 – Machinima

About This Game

StarDrive sets a new benchmark for the ‘4X Space Strategy’ genre. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you must venture forth into the galaxy, conquer new worlds, build new colonies and defend your very existence against those who would take what is yours. How you play is your decision. Use diplomacy or brute force. Trade, spy and research your way to galactic domination. Make friends, or create mortal enemies…

The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine.

StarDrive takes a modular approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ships where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship.. In combat, if your portside armour is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship’s shields; warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.

Key Features

  • Real time gameplay with a seamless zoom from a grand strategic view to a close-up action view
  • Choose from 8 beautifully rendered alien races or design your own to lead into the stars; interact, negotiate and forge allegiances on your way to victory
  • Expand your empire and colonize all kinds of planets, terraform and populate them and build them into specialized centers of trade or industry
  • Research and unlock an array of technologies to improve your military and industrial capabilities
  • Control your ships with classic real time strategy commands or jump into the fray by taking direct ‘arcade’ control of any ship in your empire
  • Create your unique ship designs with the modular ship design system and determine your own fate in battle
  • Create custom fleet formations and set rules of engagement in the easy-to-use fleet editor
  • Steal technologies, incite rebellions, or rob your enemies blind with a rich agent-based espionage system
  • Deploy ground troops from orbit to defeat the enemies’ last planetary defenses in ground combat
  • Explore the rich universe that comes alive with random events, remnant elements, hidden treasures, deep space terrors and late-game threats

Do you have a dream of conquering a galaxy of sophisticated races, including the pride humans and music playing plants? Then you have almost achieved your goal, it's only a click away!

Stardrive is a massive 4X game. You will begin your game with chosing perks for your race (Yes you can be wolves), and then venture forth out in the galaxy. Everything is real time, so you can fight at multiple places in the galaxy at the same time and just zoom in and out on the locations for easy multitasking your way to victory.

The best thing about everything with stardrive is the ship workshop. You can design a vast amount of different ships. You want a cruiser with superior missile force. Stardrive has it. Superior laser force. Stardrive has it. Large carrier ship carrying a large amount of fighters, stardrive has it! There was this time that one of my ships got stuck with damaged engines drifting around in the vast lonely space. I raced to the workshop and designed a support ship for the rescue of the lonely ship. That was amazing. Felt like a real rescue operation (Yes I am taking this game seriously).

There is some flaws about the game though. Worst thing is the sometimes stupid AI. Ask a race for peace when you are bombing their capital back to the stone age. "You ask for peace, you shall find none here".. Also the AI kinda get stuck and stop colonizing and just hangs around producing one ship at the time, which then makes an easy enemy to kill (I experienced this in hard mode).

This game is really worth your money for 7.49 euroes. In my opinion its also worth the original price (But hey, that's me).

It's a great game for a young space adventurer like you! Go out there and build an amazing ship and reck everything in flying in your way. But hey, be nice to the Pollops, they are always just so nice to you! (Always recking them in the end anyways though!) xD

I cant believe the dev. would leave his original game and create a stardrive 2, Why would you create a game abandon it and expect us to buy another failure?!?

This game started out good but was never finished despite what the dev and ♥♥♥♥♥ic fanboys want you to think.

It takes balls to try and release a sequal before you even finish the initial game.

The developer's a lying sack of ♥♥♥♥, which I suppose has never been entirely uncommon in the game industry. Unfortunately, it's not like the days of old where a game like Big Rigs would simply cause an entire company to go under, and hopefully many of those people went on to work on real games, or committed suicide.

No, this is the glorious age of crowdfunding, where ♥♥♥♥nuggets like the guy who made this game can tell you that a feature will be included, then not only fail to do so, but obtain enough support to create a second version of the game. Not even a sequel. A second version of the game that will be sold at full retail price.

So what happens if you own this version of the game? You get like, a 20% discount on the new one. That way, if you're actually ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ enough to buy it, you can have two different versions of the same game in your Steam library: one unfinished, the other with the promised features for the first(maybe; I wouldn't hold my breath). It's like if every patch for every game were released as a separate version of a game and you had to pay for all of them.

There isn't even an entire company behind this game. It's just like one dude. Jesus. Let it go under so he'll go back to accounting or whatever the ♥♥♥♥ he did before he became a professional thief.

Before I get started I would like to say that I really love this game, its a lot of fun. However. the developer is a lying jerk. As everyone should know by now he promised many many things and then decided he didnt wanna do it anymore. so he declared the game done! end of story and then rushes to make a sequel. (even though hes majorly changing the game example making it from real time to turn based...) This game has so much potential and would be SO much more fun. except it was left in the hands of someone who disgraces his own game with what hes done.
