Stars in Shadow is a turn-based 4X science
fiction strategy game. Explore the stars, settle distant worlds,
and build an interstellar empire. Recover ancient technologies and
negotiate with alien leaders. Created by a pair of passionate
strategy gamers, Stars in Shadow features streamlined empire
management, sophisticated turn-based tactical combat, and detailed
world building.


  • Epic Scope: Starting at the dawn of
    interstellar travel, progress through four eras of technological
    advancement. Discover the science of planetary terraforming,
    upgrade your infantry battalions to battle mechs, and grow your
    fleet from a squadron of destroyers to an armada of
    planet-destroying Dread Stars.
  • Varied Factions: 7 Playable factions
    comprising six alien races. Each faction has different research
    strengths and technology options. Forming alliances, conquering
    neighboring species, or discovering ancient artifacts may open up
    additional avenues of research. Choose your race wisely as it
    impacts which worlds will suit you, what trades or alliances may be
    offered, and whether or not your neighbors are inclined to trust
  • Stylized Setting: A distinctive comic-book art
    style and an original, detailed universe backstory draw you into an
    immersive game world. Interact with a unique cast of alien
    characters, make friends and influence people, or crush your
    enemies and see them driven before you.
  • Focused High-Level Strategy: Build a vast and
    varied empire, taking advantage of the unique traits offered by
    different alien populations and the worlds they inhabit. A
    streamlined resource and planetary improvement model keeps the game
    moving even when your empire grows large.
  • Deep Turn-Based Tactical Combat: Face off
    against your opponents in complex 2D turn-based tactical battles.
    Counter your enemy’s missile barrage using point defense or
    interceptors, then close to energy weapon range! Stars in Shadow’s
    tactical engine includes several features rarely seen in turn based
    games. Multi-ship commands keep even large fleet battles
    fast-paced, and smart unit behaviors allow tight control with
    minimal micromanagement. Auto-resolve battles that are a foregone
    conclusion, while retaining the ability to replay any engagement to
    see exactly what happened.
