Harvest stars and fight with black holes in a magnificent RTS set into the cosmos.
Devouring Stars is a real-time strategy game based on adaptative unit combination and space resources harvesting. Devouring Stars aspires to bring a different scope to the RTS genre while offering visual and audio refinement.
In Devouring Stars, you play a tribe of godlike entities trapped in Tartarus, a corner of the universe as far beneath hell as heaven is high above the earth. Hunted by 4 other tribes, you have been given the ability to draw your own fate. But to what extent?
To defend themselves, those entities have the ability to devour space starfields and create dynamic protective nebulae, or to merge to grow into more advanced units with special abilities (freezing enemies, taking control of them, attacking them from afar, etc.). Depending on the set of entities a game is started with, different strategies may be unfolded.
Devouring Stars is mainly inspired by Dan Simmons' Illium but also by games like Homeworld, Eufloria, Starcraft or Faster Than Light.
- Unique particle system displaying thousands of dynamic stars
- Superb action soundtrack with epic piano compositions
- 15 advanced entities to unlock by merging the 4 basic ones (earth, air, fire, water)
- Generated starfields offering a wide range of beautiful and differently balanced layouts
- Thousands of different settings through generated scenarios
- Direct attack, escape route, diversion... There are plenty of ways to play the game depending on your strategic choices, entities and enemies
- 4 enemy tribes with specific features and behaviors
- And some well hidden secrets...
“If you’re stirring up a fictional war for a video game, I’d be far more interested in unknowable celestial entities weaponising the very cosmos, devouring and merging stars to create colossal murdertools.”
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun
“A minimalist RTS, but one that doesn't lack for depth of strategy.”
What's New in Version 1.3
Corrects a bug that was letting you divide enemies entities.
Barely a Beta
Before buying, take note that this game is essentially in-development. It's extremely buggy, and even aside from the bugs, gameplay isn't particularly exciting or strategic. At the moment, gameplay is pretty bland, especially if you've played over and over as every single tribe like I have, expecting some sort of ending. I was hoping that the story actually had meaning behind the vague "cutscenes" but at this point it simply seems to be hiding the fact that the devs haven't actually come up with a proper story.
Good but some
Mostly overall it is a great game. But one thing i do not like is the way that you have to choose troops before each sector. I would like it to allow us to start a level even though we did not completely fill in the squad. On another note, there seems to be a bug in the game, by tapping the pause/zoom out button constantly it allows us to kill an enemy while near death by taking down there health with ours too.
By far my favorite game. The controls are smooth, the graphics great and not too complicated, and the music is also interesting.
