Alpha has arrived

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Alpha is here, neat.

It's currently available for PC (Windows), Mac, and Linux.

It's being distributed through Steam.

We are still looking for Steam alternatives, but I encourage everyone to use Steam. It provides a standardized build for everyone.


Keys are being distributed through BackerKit. If you lost your email, please contact us. We'll need your name and the email address you used during the Kickstarter.

This is not Early Access. If you don't have Alpha Access, you can't get it. The game is not ready for release. If you want to have the most fun with Starmancer, wait for release. Play Alpha if you want to help us find issues and fix bugs.


Provide all feedback on our Discord server. This gives us with a single location for finding bug reports, suggestions, and comments.

If you post an issue somewhere else, we might not see it.


Dirk (the composer of our sound effects and music) uploaded the entire Starmancer soundtrack to his youtube channel. Give it a listen.

Contact Dirk if you're looking for sounds or music for your own game.

Thanks Everyone,

Starmancer, 1 Year Later

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Hello Everyone,

It's been a year since the Kickstarter finished. We made a video showing the current state of Starmancer.
Thank you for being so patient with us while we improve the backend of the game.  

TL; DW: Modding works and Alpha very soon

Space Haven

If you haven't heard, there's a game on Kickstarter, Space Haven. It's similar to Starmancer and you should definitely check it out. 

It's raised over $200,000! But there's only 67 hours left, so hurry up and back it! 

Thanks for all your support

New UI and Wargroove!

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Hello Backers,

We don't like to make too many Kickstarter updates, because it blasts your email, and we find that annoying.

We've been diligently working on Starmancer. Every Friday we post a new blog about what we worked on

New UI

Over the past 2 weeks we worked on implementing a new User Interface system. This includes a build menu, HUD, and window system (so when you click on an object a window will appear).

We've been quiet. Starmancer has a new engine

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since the Kickstarter ended. We've quietly been creating a new engine for Starmancer. We're still using Unity for rendering, animations, input, and some other things.

We wrote a fairly long blog post on our website that goes into more detail.

(I'd post it here, but you can't edit a Kickstarter update)

Thanks everyone for your support
