Star-Twine is an abstract real-time strategy game in which you control a point of light created by a dying star. Battles unfold on sprawling three-dimensional maps as you collect energy and build structures to attack your opponent. Chill out to the atmospheric visuals and soundtrack as you plan your next move.

Star-Twine includes a single player campaign, skirmish mode, and multiplayer (online or LAN).

Star-Twine is a game of positioning and timing. Energy Nodes are used to collect resources, Turrets fire at the enemy, Black Holes absorb nearby projectiles, Sentinels stake out territory and Missile Launchers deal massive damage to an area. Through building these simple structures, many different strategies emerge.

It looks and sounds amazing. The only thing bad about it is that you cant buy a CD for it, meaning that if I have computer troubles and need to get a new computer then I have to buy it all over again since its illegal to copy any game you want to backup onto a CD.

The Desura version can be redownloaded at any time. Also, I really don't mind if you back it up onto a CD.

Hi, can you check if there is an Users\<you>\AppData\Star-Twine folder? (Or if you're on XP, it would be \Documents and Settings\<you>\Application Data\Star-Twine). If this folder exists, there should be a crash log inside; send me the contents and I'll look into it!

This is a great game. Stratagy is everywhere but in your face. It makes you think while being fun and enjoyable. The only problem is that I don't have $10.

This is the most unique game we have seen in a while, although for what game-play is available $9 is pretty high.
