Horrible things are happening on the Iapetus moon station. Utilize your tools, your environment and your weapons to try and escape the horrible madness, fighting and running through the dark corridors. Experience a story of an experiment gone horribly wrong through the diaries of the station personnel. Death is final, and it will find you fast if you're careless. Starshock is a retro-esque shooter that takes place in a space station. It is heavily inspired by *shock games and other old first person shooters like Doom or Wolfenstein.

The engine rewrite will allow me and Stefan to add more to the game, and introduce new game modes along with (possibly) further mod support.

Here are some previews of the graphical changes, everything has increased in resolution and detail while maintaining the old style;

We are looking towards balancing all the weapons, this is more like a tech demo now rather than the representation of the game. Also, the inability to dodge shots is something causing problems and we are doing our best to resolve them
