Star-Twine is a strategy game with ambient sounds, stunning visuals and a virtually infinite number of levels to play on.

Battles unfold on sprawling three-dimensional maps where you, a small point of light, must build structures to extract energy from the threads that make up the world. Energy can be spent on new structures, each with their own unique abilities.

Engage in challenging battles against the reactive enemy AI, or play against others online. Star-Twine lets you explore complex strategies and intense gameplay within a relaxed, atmospheric experience.


  • Unlimited number of procedurally generated levels
  • Fully 3D maps where attacks can come from any angle
  • Skirmish mode with multiple difficulties
  • Online 1 vs 1 multiplayer and LAN play
  • Ambient electronic soundtrack and abstract visuals which create a relaxing, spaced-out atmosphere
  • Simple RTS gameplay that emphasizes positioning and timing rather than micro-management

Progress! The new update is almost ready. I've finally finished creating all of the levels for the new single player campaign and implementing all of the changes I wanted for this update -- but I am in need of player feedback!

If you'd like to try out the new single player campaign before release please send me a private message letting me know.

In the meantime here is a gif showing one of the many new improvements -- Sentinels (formerly Defenders) now change the color of the level around them to show their range when they activate! You can also see some new refraction effects and other visual enhancements here:

And here is a screen from the campaign's intro cinematic:


Stay tuned!

Relax this weekend with Star-Twine an excellent ambient indie vs. reactive AI or a friend. The demo has fewer difficulty settings, only one skirmish level...

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.
