With Star Control: Origins announced, people are wondering who Stardock is and what we’re all about. Many of you are already familiar with us but for those who aren’t, here’s a background.
When you read the comments on Stardock’s history we’re best known for our work on Galactic Civilizations and Sins of a Solar Empire. You will also see some people mention Elemental which had a rough launch but came back with its sequel and expansion (which were given to...
Today we are opening up the Founder’s Program to Phase II in preparation for alpha testing (Fall) and beta testing (Winter).

We’re still very early in development as you can see. The creatures and other cool stuff on the planets weren’t quite ready to show yet and we’re saving the best parts for a later reveal.
Founders will ...
For those who don’t know, Offworld Trading Company came to Early Access on Steam back in February 2015. Immediately developers and community started working together to make the game the best it could be. Part of this process was making sure the community always had a good idea of what was coming next to OTC. Ever since release almost 6 months ago, finding information about what’s on the horizon has become more difficult for our players. The primary goal of this diary will be to make sure player...
The first significant update to Sorcerer King: Rivals it out. Most of it had to do with making the neutrals behave more intelligently (attacking enemies, building things better, etc.). We also update the UI to make the Ascension spell much more accessible to players.
We also had a pretty major improvement to late game performance thanks to a customer who sent me a saved game who was running into this. The result is that late game should be much much faster.
This is going to be long and go into both Escalation, the development of Ashes of the Singularity and discuss the technological singularity.
Our story so far…This past Spring Stardock released the real-time strategy game, Ashes of the Singularity. It’s a game set in the post-technological singularity future in which humans have begun to expand to other planets. In this future, a single individual is so powerful that they can manage entire armies of semi-auto...
DeskScapes is a great way to mange your wallpapers, whether they are animated or static wallpapers. If you are not familiar with DeskScapes, it allows you to have animated wallpapers on your Windows desktop, and even lets you apply effects to those wallpapers for even more customization.
One of the questions I get asked the most about DeskScapes is how you can have wallpapers change randomly. It’s a cool feature but it seems not everyone is aware how to enable it, so I wanted to focus o...
PC Gamer has an article up about 4x games and takes a look at the "major players" in the genre. Great to see Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, and Galactic Civilizations III on that list!

PCGamesN has some exclusive video footage and screenshots from Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation!
ESCALATE ON NOVEMBER 3 On November 3, Ashes of the Singularity gets its first expansion pack: Escalation. It’s a stand-alone expansion which means that if you don’t already have Ashes of the Singularity, you can just buy Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation and get everything that’s in the base game too.
TOTAL ANNIHILATION vs. SUPREME COMMANDER There are a lot of reasons we decided to separate the base game from Escalation. Much of this came from how the game dev...
