DescriptionStars! is a multiplayer, strategic romp through the universe. Your goal? To take over said universe (or any of several other victory goals. Universal domination is just the most fun.).
This game has a lot of complexity, but a simple interface. It runs in a window, and everything you need to know about your budding empire (or thriving war machine!) can be accessed by menu or shortcut keys.
Universes are randomly created in one of four sizes. You can add up to 15 (!) other players, both AI or human. Then you can set this up as play-by -email.

TriviaA sequel, named Stars! Supernova Genesis, was planned, created and developed well into the beta stages. It featured rather more impressive graphics, a slick new interface and very cool 3-D battle scenes. The creators of the original Stars! in fact built a whole company with which to develop the game, but sadly never found a publisher. As a result, Stars! Supernova Genesis may never see the light of day.
