Stellar Warfare has been in development for three years by a small but very dedicated team. After almost a year of playtesting and implementing feedback from patrons, the lead developer is finally content to let the game go into Early Access.

Players will be thrown into the aftermath of a galaxy-spanning conflict between humanity and the zealous followers of The Light. Events have taken place which has thrown the galaxy into chaos. It is up to the player to find answers and safeguard his people.

The player can choose to build up their fleet slowly, but can also start raiding right away. Hour-long buildups are not required for those who desire instant action. Killing enemy units allows you to find blueprints that you can then use in between games to modify your units. There are currently well over a million possible ship configurations you can choose from.

I’ve always wanted to play a classic style space RTS that offered just the right amount of base building and customization for my taste. Because the RTS genre has been quiet for some time now I decided to make one myself. There seemed to be a lot of 4x games that did offer a lot of customization, but each game would take many hours. I wanted to create something that is a bit more classical in nature, is instant action, but still offers overarching progression” said Thomas van den Essenburg of Tense Games.
