The alpha version of StarMade is completely free!

We absolutely appreciate any and all support via buying the game, making a private investment, etc.. :)

Some of the things that you can currently do in StarMade:

  • Explore: Infinite space in all directions using the X/Y/Z axis you can travel from 0,0,0 to 1000,2000,3000 and so on, but infinitely!!!
  • Design: Design the ship of your dreams, from famous ships featured in movies, book lore and other sci-fi/fantasy cannon. Or design something from your own imagination, connecting modules of ships together and challenging your efficiency and design skills. Do you create a ship that kills and destroys everything or a peaceful trading ship that is really just a smugglers ship in disguise?!
  • Customize: Create customized weapons, harvesting, repair, shield and other modules by grouping them into geometrical patterns to increase their abilities! With more modules being dreamed up by the StarMade team EVERY DAY, the possibilities are endless!
  • Multiplayer: StarMade was designed around multiplayer to begin with. Share control of your super massive ship, design a station with friends or conqueor the universe INCLUDING your pals, one sector at a time!!
  • Multiplatform: This game runs with Java and is OPTIMIZED to run as efficiently as possible, while we may experience some bugs and bumps in alpha and beta, we are more focused on gameplay and engine optimization.

There are many more features and we will do our best to create a better website, with fully imaged tutorials, videos and other goodies ( including contests and giveaways! ).

The best support we can get at this time is the word of mouth, get more people to not only play StarMade but follow us on twitter, indieDB and become involved with our community. Remember, you guys will be the core players that helped us launch this awesome game, and we will remember you.

You can find us on twitter @star_made

New Trailer

It took a long time, but we are finally updating our IndieDB page again.

A lot will come in the next weeks. Here is the trailer:

It showcases the main features of the game and its stability. It was completely filmed on a multiplayer server with around 24 people on at that time :)

Thanks for playing StarMade,

I saw this, and all i could think of... What if every halo fan got together, helped each other build ships from Halo lore, and then went to battle, covenant vs UNSC ships... IS THAT POSSIBLE!?!

I just spent around an hour messing around. The game looks awesome and building a ship is pretty fun, although I never could figure out how to get weapons to work. Even after dissecting a ship that I purchased through the shop, I couldn't get it to work. I was doing the core -> weapon controller -> weapon hierarchy, but it just wouldn't seem to connect. I think maybe a better ship building tutorial in-game would help a lot. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to seeing where you take this game!

the easiest way to connect thing, is to have the block selected before you build the block, that connects to it.

For a simple ship: Build some power, build some thruster (thrusters auto-connect to the core).
* select the core by pressing 'c', build one weapon controller.
* select the weapon controller by pressing 'c' and build weapons

now you have a functional weapon on your ship. You can assign your new weapon in the weapon panel by pressing 't'

WOW! I just watched a video of this game and i think it's become Better than i hoped for! O:

Idk if you need any suggestions, but here's some:

-You could add mobs into the game, each planet type having their own special mobs.

-You could improve the block quality, when i watched the video i got a faint headache because of all the complexity each block has.. :I

-You probably shouldn't make planets be randomly generated everywhere, making solar systems would be awesome. A star in the middle and a few planets orbiting it.

-Perhaps you could make so that people choose what they want to be able to breathe... (ex. Oxygen, Carbondioxide etc..) and apply those to planets randomly, that would be so realistic! D:

I have more suggestions, but idk if you want to hear them... well, just message me if you do.

thx for the nice words and the suggestions!

- Mobs will defiantly come.

- Sorry about that. But what do you mean by block quality?

- The architecture for solar systems is already implemented, although you won't be able to see it in this update since atm they are aligned next to each other, aren't rotating, and have no star in the middle. They will be completed in soon following updates.

- I have a lot of mechanics planed for characters. But at the moment, I concentrated on the basics of the world you are playing in. Once that is working well, I'm going to focus on more detailed aspects.

Keep your suggestions coming. You can use the forums on for your suggestions, so I and all the other StarMade players can discuss them better :)
