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.

I'm wondering if I buy StarDrive here at Desura that I can play the alpha.

Thanks in advance.

Yep. Although it's still buggy and incomplete due to the fact it's an alpha, but very fun :)

Got confused about the kickstarter text...

As a sidequestion to this one, if I buy this now in alpha-funding stage, will I have access to the full game once complete?


Feb 25 2012 Anchor

That's my understanding of it yes.

Feb 27 2012 Anchor

Yes, of course!
