StarDrive is a 4X Action-Strategy game where the goal is to build a space empire. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you forge out into the galaxy, exploring new worlds, building new colonies, and discovering the StarDrive universe. The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine. StarDrive takes a module-based approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ship designs where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship in combat. In combat, if your portside armor 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.

StarDrive development is going strong and we are on target to meet all of our timing goals. I've seen a few postings here in the comments that there have been no updates for 3 months. And, looking at the news section here, that's true!

However, this is because we shifted everything over to our new website and forums. For the main updates on game progress, please register at www.stardrivegame.com and become a member of our forum!

Every time there is news or a discussion of features, it will be there on the forum. It is also the best place to request features and to highlight any bugs you find in the alpha tests.

A new patch will be posted to Desura today, so stay tuned for those patch notes.

I keep getting sever late game slow down in fights with beam weapons.

my dreads packed with 25-28 fusion beams just crash the game if there is a large engagement which by the end of most arms races is inevitable

is this a problem or is it something I can fix?

Yeah, this was released on steam as a finished product a couple months ago and it got bad scores. I don't quite get how this is saying they are in beta.

I bought this game from Desura on the 22nd of May and what did i get??? I get a version 1.07b game and on the Stardrive website they already on version 1.12. Tried Desura support - no response, no update for game. I messaged Zero on Stardrive website, guess what, no reply, no update etc. So now i sit here with a broken game because of bugs and none are interested to provide me with the update. This is the first and last game i will buy from Desura since there is just no support. Its Monday morning and i bought the game on Wednesday and still no update for game after i was told by Stardrive support (Daniel - which i think is Zero) that he will upload an update for the Desura site on Thursday. Did not happen. Desura support also not assisting me. I will not buy any games again from Desura or any games made by same people who made Stardrive. So Steam users on v1,12 and i am stuck on v1.07b on Desura site. Do not buy this game since full of bugs and no support for a game you paid for. If you really still want it go buy it from Steam since they on version 1.12. No wonder why people download pirated games from torrents because you do not need Steam or Desura and since there is no support then it will not matter will it. Cheers

Actually get up and update it, its a very good game ;)
yeah it ain't the most stable but it is FUN. and more or less made solo. Ther creator has acknowledged it ain't that stable but tbh, that's not his fault.

That's odd. I contacted Desura support and got my Steam key in 24 hours.

It was then displayed here:

Based on the alpha it has alot of potential!

As kickstarter backer I am very disatisfied to see it released here while kickstarters don't have access to the game.

Due to this I rate this game a 1 due to lack of support of the developer for early supporters. Due to this I don't expect the developer to support this game long-term.
