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.

Is this a non steam version and does it has a standalone installer?

It's important to me to gat a DRM-free version (must be up to date).

I thought it was DRM-free, to be fair, even the version from Steam.

stoked for my steam key.

i bought this game way too long ago to mind waiting any longer.

i suppose i'll get it when i get it.

as for this ridiculous argument about "Who's fault it is" i'd say its as much everyone involved's fault.

the dev made an empty promise because he didn't expect (?) to sell so many copies in alpha.
everyone insulting the dev for not giving them a steam key for his product (cause that somehow helps)
etc

getting pissy in the comment section isn't helping you get your steam keys lol
(just like my not being a **** isn't helping me get mine)
to be honest, i'm just happy that i will be getting one.

everyone needs to calm down, people who bought the game on steam included.
obviously they're on the dev's side because they were provided with keys immediately.

i played what desura had of this a month or so ago.
god damn i can't wait to shift this one to my steam library. its gonna be grand.
in the meantime, i'll get back to playing gnomoria

The keys have been sent out to Kickstarter people and to Desura Alpha funders.

Calm the **** down.

Right click on the StarDrive alpha in the games list in the Desura client and click "view key". That will give you your steam key.

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.
