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.

Why can't we add mods to this game? It has integrated mod support and numerous mods released and in development...

Because it's largely rated by the players that are optimistic for its future. I think we'd all agree that it's in an unfinished state and requiring a lot of polish, but the base game below is really quite spectacular...

So the high votes on here are more predictive values, even though it's in poor form for a release version. The devs are continually upgrading and expanding the game for free, though, and the modding community is really strong - but for some reason we can't add mods on moddb for it...

Lies, the multiplayer is coming very soon but is not yet incorporated.
This is why it used to say "multiplayer" on steam but was recently removed. Once the multiplayer feature comes, steam will be re-updated to say "multiplayer" once again.
Buy it now, it gives you lots of practice for when MP comes and the developer is very open with his progress on updates, on the website. Not to mention that the game is awesome.

Lowest Rated (6 agree) 1/10

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.
