Get it also on Mediafire



Starshock is a game that takes place in a space station. Terrible things are happening and you are a survivor. The game isn't Duke Nukem, you do not run around shooting monsters like there's no tomorrow because if you die, you die. You have to utilize your tools; every single credit, every single mine, every single bullet and the environment. There are message terminals to provide information about the station and provide stories of survivors to help you immerse with the game. There's nothing useless, it doesn't remind you that you are playing a game - you are a survivor of a disaster, and you want to stay as one



Hello Tigsource, this is a game by me and mrmotarius. The idea has been out there for a long time and I've been working on it but I lost the old code which caused me to restart it. I've been working on this since 4.2.2013 and we both are on a very fast pace, working towards getting this out as a commercial release!

The game is written in Java, using LWJGL for input and graphics. The engine is complete and we are doing our best to bring in a lot of new content to make this game provide you with 100% pure fun















Most of the screenshots above run at 40~ FPS but don't worry, it's the netbook I'm working on that doesn't support hardware acceleration

Game is under heavy development and I have about 5 testers present, so no for while. After I get some more progress done, I'll release a build. If you'd like to be a tester feel free to contact me!

Looking pretty sweet, a bit too chunky and retro perhaps but hopefully it'll play well.

We've received a lot of feedback from the testers, which resulted in tons of fixes and changes. Not really much to see here but all were very important

This looks cool as. Hope it has more satisfying sword swing than Delver and Minecraft though.
