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

Thanks for playing StarMade

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,

Very Nice, a lot of potential in this one. As a newbie Programmer I am impressed at what you have down here (even if it is in Java... my least favorite language xD). Very good luck to you in your development and I do hope this comes to be a success :)

Defiantly Tracking this one

Well, java has it's advantages for sure, but I can see, how people would dislike it, but imho often times for somewhat wrong reasons.

I don't really like how java works at run-time is all. The whole garbage collection thing is useful but feels resource intensive methinks.

A bit late, but you can optimise garbage collection at various points in a program by calling/running the collector from within your code. It's less of a resource-hog than people realise.

Makes me want to develop some kind of a game in it, really. I've been working with Swing (GUI library) a lot this year, and I hate it to death :P

Ah, GUI programming is always one of the worst parts for me, falling right next to physics engine integration.
I've never tried Swing, but it can't be as bad as trying to integrate LibRocket (a very cool little GUI api I found that lets you code it all in HTML/CSS/PHP/C++) into an engine based around Horde3D ( a very unloved and under supported C++ OpenGL Graphics Platform ). It took two of us (one of us being a 20 year C++ games programming vet) a month to get it working... and even then there's hitches and bugs every now and again

"Blockade Runner" is way better than this. http://www.moddb.com/games/blockade-runner

It also has a professional team of 8 guys working on it, and it shows.

No it really doesn't show that 8 'professionals' are working on it, I never at any point thought it was Blockade Runner was made by more than a single person in their spare time. Not saying it isn't good but certainly not amazing.

I know my competition is very good.

All I can do is to work very hard to improve my game. Tell me, what aspect don't you like about my game, so I can improve.

Not a problem : ) I don't get why IndieDB doesn't let you fix that.

If there's ever anything you need, let me know, eh?

Cheers,

Looking from another perspective, blockaderunner and others going for this theme, have very good competition themselves. I like what I'm seeing here schema!

I agree. Competition creates growth on both sides. Don't shoot him down. I personally bought Blockaderunner but this game shows promise as well.
